North India Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My mother was visiting me, from out of state, for my birthday, and we came down to San Francisco from Napa to have dinner with my nephew and his girlfriend. My nephew and I have eaten here previously, and liked it a lot. I also love the convenience of the location.
Place had only a couple of tables full. The floor was dirty. The waiters had their fingers all over the plates instead of serving with the hand on the edge. Food was just fair. Waiters were also unfriendly. White wine was almost Undrinkable. Will not return.
1. A/C was not ON,we asked for turning it ON they said its not working
2. Water was served with no ice, when we asked for more ice they gave only one Pint of glass full of ice begween 10 people
3. Table arrangement for 10 people was very cramped
4. Lamb dishes were almost uncooked
5. Biryani is the most pathetic dish here - its just rice with some spices. They don't know how to make biryani
I love just about every restaurant I go to but this place was an exception. I ordered the Bombay chicken spicy. It wasn't and the sauce looked like it came from a jar of spaghetti sauce that has been sitting opened in the fridge for a couple months. Service was slow and inattentive and just not that nice. Place looks nice though.
I planned a business dinner here for a group of 14. I made reservations a week in advance and called the day-of to confirm. When we arrived, they did not have a table ready for us, it appeared that they HAD one set up but that somebody split the table up and gave it to a small group. They ended up MOVING the small party to a different table (mid meal) to push tables back together for our group. Once we got settled, the service was slow at first, but then got better. The food was really great and the value was also great. They were also accommodating with splitting the check between all of us.
I would eat here again, but wouldn't try to make reservations for a large group.
The food was very good and the prices reasonable with the exception that it was TOTALLY a la carte -- a main course came with NOTHING at all, not a condiment, not a rice ,not a bread ,not a vegetable. Not so much of a problem if you have a bunch of people sharing but a problem if you're a single diner. A bigger problem was the incompetent service -- we ordered 5 things and the waiter totally forgot two of them, first the wine and then one of two main dishes -- which by the time we realized that he might have just forgotten it, we had to rush through eating and were still slightly late for our meeting to attend following the meal. Further, no real apology let alone an offer of some courtesy compensation such as an appetizer or dessert or even something to nibble while we sat and waited. They were also reluctant also to turn down the loud TV, let alone off, though, at the time we asked, the four of us were the only customers -- presumably because the staff wanted to watch ! Still the food was good enough that I'd go back again and, as I'm a Professor of Management, it makes a great story to tell my class about poor management.
The food and service are very good for the price and location. There was an overwhelming smell of cleaning fluid during the second half of our meal even though the restaurant was over half full (so they weren't getting ready to close). Without that the dinner would have been great.
My friend and I met here for lunch at Noon. It fills up quickly so I was very glad that I had made a reservation. I'm vegetarian and Northern Indian and I was very happy with the vegetarian selections. Overall, this is a great lunch spot with a nice variety of options for meat eaters and vegetarians (though I think they had more meat/fish options ;-) I'm glad I tried it and I'd even make the trip across town to eat here again. The service was outstanding. That alone would bring me back. Thanks for an excellent lunch!
North India is my #1 place to go for Indian food.
Besides the food and service that is always on par, each experience the servers introduces us to something NEW & DIFFERENT.
This time it was the HOUSE MADE CHEESE we were introduced to. Wow, it was unbelievably delicious, especially when paired with the sauces. You can equally eat it alone, just make sure you have it while hot.
Thank you again to our servers/experts- KULDEEP & LOVE. We will be back!!
I was surprised and impressed with the service at North India. The servers were all very attentive.
I also really liked the lunch buffet, unfortunately , since we came in so late (130pm) a few dishes were out and they weren't making more to replenish. Next time i will have to go earlier!!
Overall, it was a good experience & will definitely go back.
