  • I have lived in the Bay Area for 9 years, and New Delhi Restaurant remains one of my absolute favorites. The dinner menu is great, they have a great selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. I order takeout frequently. Three can eat with enough food for leftovers for $40. The nan is cooked in an actual tandoor oven, it's possibly the best in town. This may not be the most traditional Indian food but I consider their samosas, saag paneer, and chicken tikki masala to be extraordinary.

  • Order: samosas, saag paneer, and chicken tikki masala

  • I was invited to a henna party a friend was having at New Delhi. Having never been to a henna party or New Delhi, I was looking forward to the afternoon.

    We had a great time! The staff was delightful and had food and drinks at hand all afternoon. My favorite was the samosas and the pakoras with mango chutney. So good. They also provided the henna artists, who were wonderful. The party was ladies only, kind of a combination of a wedding shower and a spa day. The dining room is beautiful and we had the run of the place. Such a good time. I plan to go back for dinner very soon.

  • Order: Samosas, pakoras, mini quiches, buffet lunch, nimbu pani and mango lassi

  • Food was excellent, server was great but, watch your bill. We were a table a four and when the bill arrived an 18% gratuity was added to the total on top of the taxes so effectively a 20% gratuity. Can see it on a large group but, not a table a 4 and not on top of tax! Say's on the menu "may be added" not "will be added".

  • I travel to SF on business quite a bit and often get taken out by clients. One of them brought me here and I cannot thank him enough for rescuing me from a future of bland room service food. New Delhi is a great place to eat in, the dining room is classy with tall columns and white linens. But the food holds up equally well outside its native environment. Now, when I'm stuck in, I order the chicken korma with saffron rice and the sag paneer. If I can't get out to the best Indian on the west coast, at least it can come to me.

  • Order: chicken korma, sag paneer, nan bread

  • I am frequent eater at New Delhi and I fell in love with it for its delicious Indian food and unique beautifully decorated restaurant, cozy romantic seating. It has beautiful tall columns, a beautiful wooden full bar, and the best of all is very comfortable spacious seating . The curries are always good and portions big and the clay oven roasted tandoori chicken is served on the sizzling sizzlers served with vegetable beds and one can live on those healthy flavorful meats. Everything is fresh and if my friends need it mild they get it mild and if they want it hot it comes wild and everyone goes happy. Nans are the ones to die for they are soft and fresh breads. Wow I am craving while I write. I am addict to New Delhi I think its the best Indian restaurant in the whole universe and I am very repeat customer. If I cannot dine in I order take out.

  • The food and service were excellent when I attended dinner for 2 on my birthday and a Sunday brunch for a graduation party of 15. There is no other restaurant in San Francisco that offers the ambience and food that New Delhi offers. The service was first rate and everyone left raving about the wonderful cuisine. I would definitely experience dining here again.

  • Order: samosas, pakoras, tandori, nan, chutney, rice, chicken, lamb, shrimp, drinks and dessert

  • My husband and I recently visited New Delhi to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Though the food, ambiance and service were all of a very high caliber, not to mention the impressive bar. We split a generous appetizer and each had a family-style entree, so we could share. I had the chicken korma - chicken in a mild sauce with cashews and raisins. My husband had the rogan josh, which is a richer lamb curry that was just as good. We also had saffron rice and finished our night with homemade mango ice cream. The atmosphere was elegant, yet entirely unpretentious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in need of an excellent dining experience; formally attired or not.

  • Order: chicken korma, rogan josh, mango ice cream, samosas
