From San Rafael’s Lotus Cuisine family comes this colorful Mission district destination for North Indian dishes (including vegan and gluten-free eats) made with free-range poultry, wild-caught seafood, non-GMO grains and spices sourced from India, and all served in welcoming quarters with bright walls, bold artwork and banquette and table seats.
We went to another restaurant down the street but they couldn’t fit a party of 8 so I quickly looked up another space that had good reviews, kid-friendly and able to accommodate vegans, vegetarians and meat-eaters. Viola!! Lotus SF popped up, I gave them a call and they said yes! Party of 8? Come on over!
So we made our way there and noticed that it was recently opened! We each ordered a dish and when it came out in little bowls.. we all looked at each other a bit concerned that we’d still be hungry. But by the end of the meal we were raving about how great each dish was, so much flavor and best Indian food we’ve tasted. Their naan was superb. We ordered about 4 plates of naan, 3 bowls of rice to accompany the 6 dishes for 6 adults and 2 children. No one left hungry.
I can’t remember the dishes real name but we had two different chicken dishes (butter chicken and chicken masala), cauliflower, chickpeas, spinach and the eggplant dish. Yummy!!
Great dinner and would definitely come back! 🙂
