Indian Restaurant in Downtown San Francisco,CA

Offering authentic Indian cuisine in San Francisco, Lower Haight & the surrounding areas


"Bravo to the friendly host at this great lower Haight Ashbury subcontinent find where the accomplished dishes will take you from Kashmir to New Delhi; even the tough neighborhood can't keep fans away from the most dazzling Indian food around; these guys are good, so be sure to bring an extra stomach and order everything."
- Zagat Survey, 2000, 22 rating

"Be prepared to wait at this excellent value Indian in a funky lower Haight neighborhood for incredible tandoori (including tasty tikka). Flavorful yet healthy options and awesome naan despite somewhat abrupt service and a cramped and noisy room; it's fun to watch the action in the open kitchen and many rank it the top Indian in the city."
- Zagat Survey, 1999

"This is one to watch. The quality has turned around since the chef from North India was hired away. Freshness and good spicing are evident, for instance, in the vegetable dishes and the tandoori chicken; prices are reasonable."
- San Francisco Chronicle, Michael Bauer and Maria Cianci

"Little wonder that since Surinder stole the chef, Indian Oven has risen to accolades as the city's favorite Indian restaurant."
- SF Weekly

"It's a menu of exotic riches"
- San Francisco Focus, Critic's Choice, Sharon Silva
