This is a favorite spot for my husband and me. We are from Punjab, and we pick up food to go here on our way back from the coast to SF some weekends. Run by a Sikh family and with soothing religious music playing rather than Bollywood rubbish, this is a tranquil and authentic spot. Good value, limited menu of... More

You feel you're back in India, with warm reds, yellows and blues and simple furniture. The food combinations are served on Indian style aluminum multi-well plates. They have Taj Mahal lager! My food was good home-made food with the slightest hint of adaptations to the Western palate (spiciness) served in an ambiance of welcome where i felt immediately at ease.... More

Totally agree with previous comments about the quality of the food and decor. Yes- it needs a little 'tlc' but it's a great little cafe! The plates we had were perfect- just the right amount and great value. The chai tea with ginger was hot and fresh . I'll definitely be back if I return to Napa.

We did take-out from here twice in a week while visiting Sausalito. The food is reliable, tasty, rib-sticking, traditional Indo-Pakistani cuisine. The decor is very plain and there is some indoor seating. The menu offers no surprises - it's relatively simple - but does offer "plates" for dine-in that combine rice, meat, and veg served on a silver plate. This... More

Visited Sausalito and wanted something to eat and found Sartaj. Located just off the main street of Sausalito this is definitely a mom and pop hole in the wall Indian restaurant with a casual feel. Good selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. I would argue that this place has the best tasting dhaal and vegetable korma in the bay area.... More

This was a great little find. Good Indian food cooked to order by a family who treats you as such. We found this to be the perfect comfort food lunch while on a road trip.

This is what a restaurant should be: food cooked with heart, soul and love. The mother does the cooking, the husband and kids man the cash register, and the food is scrumptious. I swear each time that I go that I will order something other than the Chicken Tikka Masala dinner, but I wilt when I enter the place. It's... More

This is one of the local's favorites. This place is small with big tikka masala!! Fun plates and a great place to arrive a stranger and leave with new friends. Mom and Pop run restaurant and the food is down to earth and affordable for Southern Marin.

The food here is very good...but the place itself needs some upgrading and a good scrubbing. Very friendly service, but having a meal on a metal plate is a little strange.
