SINCE WEâ??VE STARTED WORKING WITH DMS, I AM SEEING AN OVERALL WEB TRAFFIC INCREASE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO FRESH BUSINESSES ESPECIALLY STARTUPS.
I had a late lunch at New Delhi during the week so I had the entire restaurant to myself, which made me worried, but the food was fantastic. There are a ton of vegetarian and vegan dishes to choose form and they're well labeled on the menu as such. The portions are large, which was unexpected, but did take care of dinner that night. The decor is nice and grandiose and the service strives to meet the expectations of the surroundings by being very prompt and proper. I would like to come here for dinner rather than the casual lunch I was looking for, but no disappointments either way.
I have done a lot of traveling and have been lucky to have tried a number of really great Indian restaurants all over the place. New Delhi more than matched any of them in the quality and taste of the food, the ambiance (this is a beautiful restaurant with it's columns and high ceilings), and the service. The paneer was the best I have ever had and their curries (which I am partial to) were also excellent. I really cannot recommend this place enough. Will definitely go anytime I am in San Francisco.
We ate there last night and it was extraordinary! I couldn't stop eating the Chicken Tikka Masala. It's so delicious! The Vindaloo was outstanding too, but be ready to break a sweat and don't forget the tissue b/c/ it packed plenty of heat! Our server was extremely kind and explained what each thing was that he brought us. Service was fast too.
One of my faves in the city... I have yet to have a bad meal here, so my only tip is to tell the waitstaff what you'd like and your preferred level of spice and let them do their thing. I usually get the chicken korma and either the sag paneer or the baigan masala - which is my favorite way to eat eggplant. Chase it all down with a nimbu pani and you're golden.
The restaurant offered great service and tasty food. It was only a small place but the staff was very accommodating.
Indian for food lovers. I'm always skeptical about the authenticity of ethnic restaurants in touristy areas. Given that New Delhi Indian Restaurant is just 1 block from the Union Square madness means it's a pretty big red flag for me. However, I was recently here on a business dinner with some out of town co-workers who love Indian food, and the restaurant didn't disappoint. Most of the dishes ordered seemed to be very flavorful and had spice (usually restaurants wimp out on the spice because they think people can't handle it). That was a refreshing surprise! We ordered the mixed vegetable pakoras, papadum, and samosas as appetizers. All were solid, and a really great way to begin an Indian meal. For the main dish, I chose to go with one of the Ranjan's Specials, namely the spicy madras tamarind chicken. Being a huge fan of tamarind and never seeing such a dish on a standard menu at Indian restaurants, this was a no brainer! It was delicious!! More on the sweet side than the tangy side, so it was an explosion of flavor for the taste buds. Loved every bite of it. The others ordered a variety of chicken, lamb, and seafood curries, as well. What I noticed was that the restaurant does not cheap out on the quantity of meat in curries. Usually you go to an Indian restaurant and they've got about 4 pieces of meat incorporated into a whole dish of curry and charge you about $12 or so for it. The dishes here were averaging about $15, but the amount of meat in the curries was fantastic! None of us finished any of the curries, because everything was so plentiful!
Always a pleasure. I have been to New Delhi many times and have never once been disappointed. The setting is comfortable and decorated in such a way that you will feel transported to another country. The food is always delicious even when from a buffet. The only downside is that rice is not included with entrees, which can be a problem if you are having a spicy vindaloo or curry. The service however is always top class, and the waitstaff will always be sure that you have plenty of water! They have a nice selection of Indian beers to go with a reasonably priced meal.
Kudos to the chef. Very creative - but still classic - Indian cuisine, but there's a subtly to taste that reflects credit to the chef. It's not just spices but with delicate flavorings that has this restaurant compare favorably to the Michelin-starred Indian restaurants in London. Seating is crowded and servers are nice but a little over-worked. Still, given the price this is a bargain --and a true culinary adventure.
Worth the travel!. I love Indian food, having had difficulty in finding a good upscale Indian restaurant in SF, New Delhi solved my problem when I discovered it 4 years back. I live in Antioch and travel all the way to Union Square to enjoy this wonderful food....Chicken Tikka is awesome, so is Biryani...i might have tried all their dishes in these years and everything tastes so good, not to mention the naan and samosas...Good food and the owner always greets me like family.
Awesome drinks and food. We started in the bar, so I'm starting my review there. It was dark it was raining, all we wanted was to slip into a dry martini. The bartender suggested a lychee martini, apparently they infuse their own vodka. Sold. Man, that was good. We had just started the second round when our table was ready, so off to food. Diner was excellent too. Everything is served family style, so sharing is easy. The portion sizes are decent and the nan bread is cooked to order and served screaming hot. All in all, a great evening. I recommend the rogan josh, spicy but not overwhelming.
Great for locals and visitors. "I took an out of town business client to New Delhi recently and had an outstanding meal and experience. The menu is adventurous and diverse-- very nice selection of classic Indian dishes and chef's specials. Food was well prepared, seasoned, and sauced; had the tandoori chicken, mango prawns and rogan josh. Recommend you share the appetizers and main courses alike to sample as much as possible. Start with the samosas. Excellent drink list, wait staff, and ambience in a convenient downtown location-- close enough to SF public transport. Will be back again with family and clients."
Great for crowds. My friends had their engagement party here. They reserved the bar for an hour then we all drifted into the dining room and enjoyed some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten. Because it was a large mixed party, there were some Indian food virgins in the mix. The staff went out of their way to make sure that everyone knew what they were eating and were comfortable with the spice levels. The vegetarians were happy, the gluten-free folks were happy and I'm trying to figure out how to get nimbu panis delivered to my home by the cute bartender.
Indian food like Indian eat. If you have ever grown up eating Indian food DON'T miss this place. Mostly Northern Indian with a page of Chef's Specials from around India.. The naan is made to order and delivered screaming hot to the table. Located a couple blocks from Union Square on the edge of the Tenderloin. This is the best Indian restaurant for it's price that I know of, and the dishes are not modified for an American taste!!!
Highly Recommended. We went to dinner here on the recommendation of the concierge at the Four Seasons. We told her that we wanted some good food, but not something we could find in our hometown. She suggested New Delhi and definitely hit the mark.The menu was wonderful and I wish we could have tried everything on it. We settled for the Chili Cheese Pakoras, Mango Prawns, Sag Paneer and Chicken Tikka Masala. The food was spicy, but the tastes and combinations were delightful. Everything was delicious and dessert was the perfect end to one delicious and different dinner. Would go back in a heartbeat to try something different and would not hesitate recommending it to anyone.
Awesome nan & curries!. We all have our comfort food. Mine is chicken korma, smooth, chunks of chicken, cashews and raisins over saffron rice - delish! New Delhi does this better than anyone else I've found in the city. The fact that they make lychee martinis is just frosting on the cake.
Wonderful north Indian cuisine. When my entire family is together we have three vegetarians, two gluten-free folks, four unabashed carnivores and two people who just want to eat already. We all managed to agree on Indian food and off we trooped to New Delhi - where we stuffed ourselves silly and had a grand time. I think I know where all the special occasion meals will be from here on out. The staff is great and they helped the Indian newbies find something tasty. Highly recommended.
Naan bread from heaven. Whether you're from India or not, it's difficult to NOT enjoy this gastronomic experience. The food is simply, and I do mean simply amazing. Just the right amount of seasoning to let the flavor of the food stand out. The presentation is grand, the drinks are up to par with the food. I recommend the Lychee Martini...actually the entire cocktail list is amazing. Save room for dessert, it's well worth it. Every part of India is represented, North, South, East and West, some of which has the addition of a flavorful Western influence. Go- try, and enjoy. I know I have, and look forward to it every time.
Wonderful curries. We went to New Delhi Restaurant on the strength of CitySearch and other reviews and were not disappointed. This isn't an inexpensive, let's-take-all-the-kids budget restaurant but an elegant and professionally conducted dining experience. We opted for several curry dishes, a tandoori sampler, and rice. The tastes on offer were subtle, well blended, perfectly pitched. This is a place I will definitely explore some more the next time I'm in San Francisco.
Great authentic Indian cuisine. My girlfriend and I stopped in here for a nice dinner a few nights ago. We didn't have reservations and the bar was kinda full, but we got sat quickly and had a waiter at our elbow shortly after. My sweetie is an Indian newbie and our server was great at answering questions and making suggestions. We went with a couple of them and were very happy with our meal. The rogan josh is great if you like spicy food, the chicken korma is great if you don't. We'll be back and this time we'll make a reservation. Edit: Tried the new Chef's Tasting Menu and wanted to give it two forks up. A great addition to an already fantastic place.
