Welcome to the finest Indian cuisine in the Mission, with a mission.

Long Time Coming

Lotus SF which opened in the Mission District in 2017 has been years in the making. Like the lotus flower that it is named after, this oasis of authentic earth-friendly Indian cuisine took time to fully blossom. The timing could not be better, as Lotus SF is now an integral part of a trend of renovation and revitalization in the Mission District.

Our setting is the heart of the Mission, right on Mission Street in a newly renovated neighborhood. Ignore all the other attractions and distractions until after you have visited Lotus SF.

A Simple Goal

Our goal with Lotus SF is simple. Offer the city of San Francisco the finest traditional Indian cuisine while keeping it healthy and green.

Our menu is the result of fine tuning our favorite family recipes. This is where tradition meets cutting edge. The result is that our food has been winning awards for nearly two decades.

We’re hoping you’ll notice our attention to detail. We source seasonal organic, non-GMO ingredients, working with local markets, farmers and suppliers. Combined with our organic spices from India and you have Lotus SF. We don’t think of green as a garnish, rather it is a path to a new earth-friendly dining experience.

The most visible commitment to green comes in the form of our convenient tiffin lunchbox, our reuseable take out containers. In our family making sure your dining experience is delightful and nourishing also means being kind to our planet.

Eating together with those we love, eating nutritious food that has been prepared with love – this can nourish our inner needs, as well as our bodies. Taking time at meals to talk to each other and enjoy the meal as a shared sacrament is rare today. We need to slow down, take time to prepare nutritious meals and rearrange our schedules so that we can be together.”

Proper Indian cooking uses spices not just for good taste, but for their inherent health benefits and to balance the diet.
