Our little Gem of home cooked, fairly priced Indian food is gone. A sign says will reopen as Sartaj by Lotus and I don't know if it's the Lotus operations of San Rafael or different. It's a terrible loss to the community and I don't think anything can replace it with the same food, same vibe or the love they... More

We have eaten at sartaj multiple times in the past 2.5 years and the food has been consistently good. It's a tiny little cafe which serves home style north Indian food. We have gone for dinners and it has always been crowded. There place is a little messy and the restroom is dirty, but the food is served on clean... More

Who knew you could get dishes with such great street style flavor in Sausalito. Exceedingly friendly staff, great cheap prices, perfect naan, and nice outdoor tables too. They even took care of us very close to closing, thank you very much!

One of the surprises of Marin county is the relative lack of very good Indian food, especially with the generally high quality of almost all cuisines in the area. Sartaj is an exception. The food is excellent, whether you eat in or take out. The Chicken Korma, in particular, is world-class. The décor isn't fancy, so be forewarned. But the... More

This is a charming little cafe off the main drag in Sausalito. The food choices are adequate and it does not take too long to get your food. If you are living gluten free there are also choices. If you cannot eat potatoes there are also a few dishes. The main problem here is portion size. For each of two... More

We stopped in for a quick bite in the afternoon. Chicken tikka masala with rice and samosas. This is another place highly recommended by locals. Apparently there are quite a few that eat here at least once a week. It is a small diner style place with not much atmosphere. We grabbed a table on the sidewalk and savoured the... More

Sartaj is a family-run business with homemade Indian food. They have a big menu for accommodating multiple tastes--spicy to mild, meat to vegetarian or vegan. Prices are reasonable. In addition to excellent food offered at a low price, the owners are welcoming and create a relaxed, friendly environment. I appreciate that it's always quiet enough to have a conversation and...

My husband and I are from Punjab, India, and live in San Francisco. Many weekends on our way home from the weekend place we stop at this cafe and take several items home to enjoy that night and the next. We usually get a chicken curry or tikka masala, lamb curry, saag paneer, daal, and rice. We've never had a... More

the smell as we walked past was so enticing that insisted on returning the next day. We ate here almost every day of our vacation and were never disappointed. It is clearly well loved by locals who appear to patronize frequently. It is a hidden he and totally worth going at least once. We did not try the meat based... More

I recently went to this location for their "Thanksgiving Celebration." I was able to try their rice, chicken tikka masala, goat, samosas, and their fried vegetables. It was all delicious! The atmosphere was very friendly, too!
