New Delhi restaurant in San Francisco is a fake Indian restaurant. Their menu is misleading and there is nothing authentic about their suggested meals. Huge disappointment with the arrogant staff too. They do serve rotten and uncooked food. Our evening was a disaster.

Very close to our hotel and the reviews said that New Delhi is vegan friendly. It is, our waitress was able to let us know which menu items were vegan or could be made vegan... in the end we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.
