    We had a mixed experience. The owner/proprietor could not have been more helpful setting up outside seating for our party of nine. The appetizers (Samosa and Kale chaat) were excellent. The mains were pretty good — very rich sauces (consistent with North Indian cooking) but not as good as the appetizers. The people who ordered cocktails were satisfied with their drinks. I thought the Mango Lassi was excellent. But service was a problem. The waiter apparently went on break during the middle of our meal and no one picked up the slack; even when the waiter was around we had inordinately long waits for service until I complained about it, in addition to confusion in terms of when food was served. Nothing here that can’t be corrected with better staffing but not quite ready for prime time at the moment.

    Food was below average. Samosa chat had undercooked chickpeas and the curries were just creamy and lacked flavor. Cocktails were ok.

    The kitchen and the service are very good. Just be aware that the menu is ‘nouvelle,’ not the plates full of food typical of most Indian restaurants but six pieces of something on a medium plate. There will be nothing to take home.

    The gol gappa and dosa chips were good. The main course items such as dosa and kabab were a let down. They were short staffed so not the best service. Can improve the flavor of their dishes.

    There were some "technical" difficulties with our order. There was confusion on what we ordered and we were brought the wrong food 3 times. But, eventually we got the correct order. It just took a bit longer than expected.

    Some really great flavors, some misses. The overly salted pappadum blew out the very tasty chutneys. The over cooked shrimp ruined the great sauce it was served with. Service staff seemed over worked and under trained. We'll be back for the delicious flavors. We're hoping for a better experience with both food and service. You're on the cusp of something very good and unique in SF.

    This is the second time we tried this restaurant and the experience has been consistent - service was friendly, but the food wasn't particularly tasty or special, and they're tremendously overpriced for what they are. The cocktail was nice though.

    There are some kinks to work out with this new restaurant. It is good to welcome a new establishment to the neighborhood, but this place does not quite hit the mark. (1) The food is surprisingly under seasoned, and I am not simply referring to it being hot or mild. I mean some of the dishes are quite bland, and others need a more complex flavor profile. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was very good either. (2) The service was friendly, but very slow—I think they may be understaffed. (3) The decor is odd and made up of clashing styles. The front bar is attractive, but the paint colors are a weird mismatch, and the sponge painted silvery sections look dated and tacky. The murals are nice, but they get lost in all the contrasting wall colors. The banquets look cheaply upholstered. The “wood” floors look cheap. They put up old and used looking wood paneling, which does not match the more contemporary look of most of the decor. (4) The place is incredibly loud, and all the exposed hard services make it very echoey. (5) The lighting needs to be redone. It shines uncomfortably in your eyes when seated and facing outward—they dim it a bit during dinner, which somewhat helped. (6)The serving dishes make no sense. Our entrees and appetizers all came out in small dishes, then our very tiny desserts were served in enormous serving dishes that covered the entire table. It was weird. (7) The cocktails need help. They are a offbeat mix of flavors that do not blend well together. (8) The price is expensive given the mediocre quality of the food, service, and ambience.

    Service was sub-par. Our server disappeared at the end of our meal and we had to ask another staff member for the bill. We never saw the dessert menu. The bill took another 10 minutes to arrive as the staff member had asked our original server to give us the bill and our server forgot. Very disappointed with our experience. The food was pretty good although the fish was dry. The value was not there as they charged $11 for a mocktail and overall was quite pricy for the quality of the food and service we received.

    As a brand new venue, there were a few minor bumps, like the nan and rice showing up late. These are little things that can be easily tended to. Over all we enjoyed the evening and the food was uniformly delicious and delightfully presented. I'd go back, any time.

    We always like to try new restaurants. So I made a reservation and went there last Sunday with my wife. We are vegetarians , so the food was much below my expectations. We had golgappas , the water lacked flavor , palak paneer & House dal both were not tasteful. The only thing we relished was Date kulfi. The front desk girl was very courteous , the server was very friendly , kitchen guys who were bringing food to our table were also very courteous. But we were disappointed with food. May be their non veg is better as I read in the reviews.

    The Fish Moilee, Butter Chicken. Asparagus soup and Sliders were excellent. The biryani was merely ok. Good (though relatively unfamiliar) wine selection. Definitely worth multiple visits and really glad this has come to the neighborhood. Excellent price/value
