Named one of the finest Indian Restaurants in the US by New York Times and featured on the Galloping Gourmet TV Show, New Delhi is the place to dine. Decorated like a Maharajah’s private banquet room, the restaurant serves cuisine made from recipes culled from the royal Indian menus dating back 300 to 400 years using the freshest local ingredients. Chef and owner, Ranjan Dey, star of PBS show – “MY INDIA” creates daily specials with his six gourmet spice blends, available nationwide in gourmet specialty stores under New World Spices.
New Delhi Bar has been the favorite hot spot for many, working in the downtown, restaurant and hotel industry, since its inception in 1988. It is famous for its “Double-Happiness-Happy Hour” featuring complimentary appetizers. The first from 4 to 6pm and the second from 10 to 12 midnight – because not everybody works 9 to 5! Soak up the lively atmosphere and friendly company.

A nice small restaurant with a good menu. Paneer starters were very authentic but our main portion size was very small. For $60 I thought this was very overpriced .

Booked via open table and could not get the time slot I wanted so had to go later. Very annoyed when I got there as there was literally only one other table occupied. ( not because everyone else had left - it had never been busy ) The food was good. But eating in an empty restaurant is not great. Service was also OK - friendly and efficient. - They only had two tables to serve so the least you would expect is reasonable service.

This was fantastic. We went on a Tuesday night, were seated quickly, and the food and service were great. This was a quick pre-conference dinner, so we ate quickly, but there were others lingering over their meals and appearing to be relaxed and enjoying themselves.

Very good food as always at New Delhi, in SF on business and I always make it a point to stop during the week at least once. We had a vegetarian in our party and there were lots of delicious options for you and the noise level there is good for having a conversation amongst yourselves. My only complaint is that they were out of Kingfisher beer.

The server was not knowledgeable and had no clue what she was doing. We didn’t even get to eat the food waited for an hour and all we got was drinks I saw other tables around ours having issues with the same server to so we left hungry and angry.

We spent my husband’s birthday over there and it was the best decision we made!
When we arrived they knew it was my husband’s birthday because they took the time to read the note I sent them.
They also accommodated us like I requested, in a private and romantic table.
Honestly, I cannot say what was the best, if the service or the food.!
Indian food is my husband’s favorite! We live in miami and spent his birthday in an unforgettable restaurant with delicious food and incredible service! It was absolutely great!!
I strongly recommend this restaurant !!

Another Indian restaurant that has no idea what a vindaloo is, let alone how to make one. No chef here has ever been to Goa, or London, even! The tandoori mixed plate was quite good, and came with some good chutney and strange tamarind sauce. The nan was nice, but average. The rice with vegetables was very good, but couldn’t offset the muck they called “lamb vindaloo”. If that meat was from a lamb, then my grandmother is a debutante. Not fresh, not good, not vindaloo. For fanciers of the King of Curries, avoid this place.

Each dish tasted the same. No discernible spice in any of the 3 dishes. The Nan was like eating cardboard. I held a Company banquet here in the 90’s and the food was excellent; this was my first time back and my last.

Food and service was great. The noise from the front bar was so loud it was distracting and destroyed the ambience.

Great Indian Food! We make it a point to go here for dinner when in San Francisco. The atmosphere is more Indian inspired and gives a authentic vibe. My husband ordered the vindaloo as spicy as they could make it and was very happy a compared to other Indian restaurants where they tend to tone down or "Americanize" the spice level. I on the other hand like a mid spice and it was also perfect for me.

Pleasant room and staff. Mediocre food of small portions, bland, and lacking spice. Drilled tandoor platter was overdone, dried out with one shrimp, 2small pieces of chicken, some spiced lamb which was bitter, and one small of fish. Garlic naan was bitter, oily. Vegetarian dashes were pureesof non descript ingredients. So disappointing for a special evening out with friends.

We went to New Delhi for dinner on a Saturday before theatre. Food was ok, the presentation so so, but the ambience was non existent. The waiters seemed to be beginners and had zero interest in their jobs. It's too bad because the restaurant has pretty nice decor and has so much potential. The restrooms and area around them need some attention. I hope the owners can make some changes and inject some life into their restaurant before it's too late.

Food was delicious. Service was good until I asked for them to pack up what was left so I could have a midnight snack. Waiter went away and came back and threw two boxes, a bag, and aluminum foil on my table and took off. I would have expected a place like this at this price point would have done this for me. Also got an email from open table that the restaurant had reported me as a no show.
