I love this restaurant. The place itself is very pretty and the menu offers a wide range of choices. I highly recommend their chicken tikka masala and their naan.

San Rafaelita's rave they're transported to India after tucking into the superb curries, great flavored naan and other delicious items meted out by a delightful staff, bargain hunter should head here for the awesome lunch buffet.

My office occasionally uses Lotus for large group lunches. They are always on time with delivery, help us with the set up, and the food is very delicious. After our first lunch with them, everyone said we have to call them again!

I love the fact that you can usually walk in without a reservation and that you can peruse the menu (and order takeout) online. Very customer-friendly.

The place had a nice interior design. The food was great. Things were okay when my family and I went there for the first time. However, when dining there for the second time, we experienced a rude, poor, and an unfair service. Even others who came to the restaurant after we did got their food quicker, they were frequently asked if everything's ok, etc. But we didn't get that kind of treatment and they never brang us a couple of food items that we ordered and were still charged for them for no apparent reason. I know a better place in Solano county where the food is just as rich, filling, and delicious and have much friendlier employees too. My family has vowed not to ever go back to Lotus ever since that night.

Inside this place an oasis awaits; cool air mixed with fragrant aromas will cool your soul on these hot summer nights. I can't say enough about the wonderful food here and the amazing service. I have been dinning at Lotus for more than five years and I can honestly say I have never had better Indian food anywhere. I feel as if I have stepped into another time when I walk into this place. The music, flowers and the warm hearts of the staff, transport you... I always feel like I am on a vacation when I eat at Lotus. \r

Everything I've had here is excellent. A bit on the pricey side, but the quality can;t be beat.\r
I'm a big fan of the chicken tikka masala and often take it home as take-out.\r

Especially nice for vegetarians and vegans.\r
\r
Now their website even offers convenient take-out ordering!\r
\r
And their prices are quite reasonable for Marin.

Great food and impeccable service will greet you at Lotus. Casual yet elegant, with a retractable roof which is great in the summer. Hard to recommend one or two dishes here but the Tandoori Prawn Masala is a can't miss dish. Great Vegetarian offerings too, which makes it easy for a crowd. Best to have reservations on a weekend but easy in and out during the week. Wells staffed and attentive service make is a very pleasurable dinner.

This has to be my favorite restaurant in and around San Rafael. The food is authentic and sooo delicious, I have tried them all and can't even name my favorite, because the dishes are all great in their own right. Lots of vegetarian and organic choices too. And get this, you can even order online and take out in a jiffy, how cool is that! You just can't go wrong here.

If you love true ethnic Indian food, this is the place to go! Very delicious curry dishes and naans. Also, great service and a somewhat quiet and cozy setting. So this would be an ideal place for a small group gathering or even a somewhat of a blind date deal. Price was average.

Lotus Cuisine of India is overall one of the best restaurant experiences my husband and I have had since moving here from NYC. The prompt, helpful and friendly service, ambience were wonderful, polished and effortless. The dishes vary for every type of diet and they were so well presented and DELICIOUS! The place is large enough to have large parties and make a theme night out of it!

The most authentic and flavorful Indian food I've eaten outside of India! So delicious I return as often as I can....and never grow tired of its wonderful flavors and scents. The service is gracious and attentive; the atmosphere comfortable and lovely. I cannot recommend this find of a restaurant more highly.

Lotus cuisine is one of the best indian fine dinning in the Marin. You can dine under the open roof and best of all you have a really nice view. The food is GREAT especially the Chicken tikka masala that is one of the BEST. Lotus is really worthy of it's name. Lotus has been open since 1998 and it's still one of the best restaurants in the Marin and will be the best. The service and decor are impeccable. Service is great and especially the food. Lotus has the greatest Indian food in the Marin County. The owner is nice and polite to the coustmers.
