We, too, have eaten excellent, and otherwise, Indian food in the U.S. and London, and we love Ajanta. The restaurant varies their menu, offering seasonal specialties from all regions of India. From the moment you step through the door (reservations suggested, as it is always packed!) the aromas confirm you are in for a special treat. No greasy, gloppy faux-Indian here, but a special treat for the senses. Beer and wine only.

The food was good but not great. The noise level in the restaurant was medium noisy and my 5 month year old was a little fussy but not screaming by any means and one of the restaurant staff said people where complaining about the noise. We had reservations for 5:45 so it wasn't that late. To be on the safe side don't bring babies.

Authentic, delicious Indian food. Flavor unmatched by any other restaurant in the area. Menu changes monthly.

I live in SF. And even though there are many Indian restaurants here, I still come to Berkeley for the best Indian restaurant, Ajanta.

Ok, I haven't been to India, so maybe I don't really know. But, I have eaten pretty good (and pretty bad) Indian food in London. And in New York. And here in the Bay Area. And nothing compares to Ajanta.

The food is great. Much lighter and more flavorful than other Indian restaurants. Much less oil. Many more spices -- not just heat.

Next time you go, try Tandoori Asparagus and Badal Jaam. [That's slices of eggplant pan fried, brushed with home made tomato sauce, spiced with mango powder, black rock salt and served topped with thickened yogurt sauce (Lucknow)]

And there are good wines matched well with the food, including some from India.
