The chefs at Tandoor on Haight aren’t trying to reinvent Indian cuisine. Instead, the pair of brothers stick closely to tradition when making their North Indian dishes with a splash of Pakistani flavor, using recipes handed down in their family for three generations. Inside their tandoori oven, they cook up halal meats such as tiger prawns, lamb rubbed with house spices, and spring chicken marinated in yogurt, imparting all of the dishes with a subtle smoky flavor as if they’d been sitting next to a lit birthday cake all day. Guests can scoop up the spice-laden curries with the sesame naan, and even customize dishes to their desired level of spice tolerance. Meals can be served in individual portions or family style, for groups who want to get a chance to taste a variety of dishes. And to cool the spices even further, staff serve up chilled mango lassis, a variety of Indian beers, and local Californian wines.

Kennedy's Irish Pub & Indian Curry House is equal parts traditional Celtic watering hole and Indian restaurant.

A hefty selection of domestic and imported brews flows from the taps, waiting to be soaked up by bar snacks including fries anointed with the pub's signature curry sauce. Ten televisions line the dining room, broadcasting high-definition sporting events to round out entertainment offerings of foosball, pool, and air hockey, in which flying hockey players slap at a winged puck.

Four Things to Know About Roti Indian Bistro Established in 2005, Roti Indian Bistro coaxes visitors into its warm, inviting space at two different locations: San Francisco and San Mateo. Inside both, diners enjoy a culinary tour through India while feasting upon lunch and dinner specialties. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you stop by: The food is considered modern Indian. That means curries are lighter and spices are less intense, but dishes don't lose the therapeutic qualities of traditional Indian cuisine. Tandoor ovens are heavily relied upon. Though these mesquite-fired clay structures can't win "Employee of the Month" honors, they put in their fair share of work churning out roasted meats and fresh breads—including the addictive goat-cheese naan. Garam masala is made in house from Roti’s own special blend of toasted spices. Try cooking the restaurant's dishes at home. Recipes for some of the most popular dishes are posted on the bistro's website, including one for customer favorite, chicken tikka masala.
