Lotus Cuisine Family of Restaurants
A elegantly lush, light-filled space a profusion of greenery and murals, this is a popular spot for locals of all stripes to have a great meal served by a personable, attentive wait staff. House specials include authentic, meticulously prepared kebabs , Tandooris, Biryanis and curries made with chicken, seafood, beef, lamb or vegetarian-style. Traditional Gulab Jamun , house-made ice cream, and a rich and creamy milk pudding made with fragrant Basmati rice as well as a selection in Indian beers and local wines rounds out the meals here.
Lotus Cuisine of India is by far my favorite restaurant. Mind you, it is not just my favorite Indian restaurant, but my favorite restaurant of all time! When you walk through the front door, you will hear lovely Indian music playing in the background, and will appreciate the art on the walls, the paintings, the ceiling that opens up, and the cleanliness of the entire restaurant.
Lotus is practically my second home, and I go there as often as possible. The whole staff treats me and my husband like family. Their buffet lunches are amazing, and each day there are different items to choose from. I won't tell you my favorite days. Instead, I suggest you try EVERY day there to find your preference.
For dinner, my favorite thing to order is the Chicken Thali. Yum!
Have you ever tried rose petal ice cream? You can at Lotus. It's fantastic!
Last Saturday my husband and I realized that if we went a little faster (on our 4 1/2 hour drive from visiting family in San Luis Obispo) we could make it to Lotus before they closed for lunch. Needless to say, we made it on time, and thankfully didn't get a speeding ticket. ;0)
It had great food for real! The restaurant had a good interior design. My family and I dined there once. But on our second time dining there, just out of no blue, we experienced a rude, poor, and an unfair service. What's even worse is that 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 Indian restaurant, which is in Solano County, and where the cuisine is just as delicious, wholesome, and savoring and has friendlier and caring employees. So, what a sad night that turned out to be at lotus in San Rafael!
