It is worth the effort to find this tiny Indian cafe tucked away in Ocean Beach. The kitchen is tiny so the menu is limited, but absolutely everything that we tried was delicious. The staff is professional and accommodating, food is perfectly prepared and artfully presented. The patio in back of the main restaurant is pleasant and quiet. Takeout is... More

We ordered takeout here on our first night visiting San Diego. The food was amazing! We highly recommend this place, especially the chicken Marsala.

Visiting San Diego, a local picked up Sundara take out to share, so I didn't get a look at the restaurant or interact with staff... but may I say the food was the best I ate the entire time! So SO delicious! And the prices? Definitely NOT San Diego! The chicken Tikka Masala- sublime. The rice pudding was great (I... More

Love this restaurant, we ate here twice in 5 days! We had flawless vegetable samosas to start – thin pastry (but not the filo kind) filled with perfectly spiced soft potatoes and peas, and served with a lovely chilli, mint dip and tamarind sauce. The Dhal Makhani was gorgeous and my husband loved his saag paneer (he preferred this to... More

This is the best Indian restaurant we could find in the town. It's a very small restaurant with a limited menu, but what ever options we tried, it was good. Since, the restaurant is run by a team of non-Indians (quite unique to see that), so they have their unique way of preparing the food. Kudos to the team for... More

Honestly I could stay with their naan bread only. Several Curries, we have tried were fantastic. All apatizers and chutneys unbelievable. Wine was great in its price range. Will be back for sure. Great service too.

Wow. Truly fantastic food. Small place. I'd make a rez on weekends. Best Indian I've had in town though selection less than somewhere like Ashoka. Can't wait to go back.

Having just bagged my first peak as a hiker, I decided to celebrate with dinner on my final night in town. I had a hankering for Indian, and had been disappointed when the hotel staff said they didn't know of any Indian joints nearby. After a walk at Sunset Cliffs, I asked Siri and got half a dozen ... But... More

Visited for the first time today. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Small menu card, but the dishes are excellent in taste. Good balance in spices and taste. Try thier Spicy Ribs..... Simply the best ever tasted. Why didnt i find this place before? We will be back.

The food is amazing. We eat there almost every week and it never fails to satisfy our craving for delicious and gourmet Indian food. Besides the excellent food, the staff are friendly, the service is top notch and the atmosphere is warm and inviting.
