SF Weekly's Description

Ruchi's menu displays a canny mix of dishes: A few conventional northern Indian restaurant dishes for the neophytes. A much bigger selection of dosas, vadas, and southern rice dishes, as well as a couple of uncommon Andhra Pradesh specialties, such as the tamarind-soured Nellore fish curry. But the reason the room fills up at lunch is the restaurant's ever-changing lunch thalis, album-sized trays filled with silver cups. One cup always contains sambar, a mustard-spiked yellow dal; another, yogurt with loose curds; a third, some kind of vegetable stir-fried with curry leaves and toasted lentils. The pleasure of ordering the thali at this SOMA restaurant is never knowing what it contains until the tray arrives, and once it does, never knowing which of its delicious contents to focus on.

    The thalis are a hood way to taste many different foods.

  • Marina L. on 08/30/12

    Delicious every time! Everything from the mint dip to the fresh naan! The carrot halwa dessert was fun. The waitresses are friendly and helpful and overall this place is awesome. Good prices too!

  • Christian N. on 09/27/10

    The chicken wrap is a perfect take out option when you're in a rush.

  • John D. on 09/23/10

    The dosa at dinner are fantastic!

  • Rajesh V. on 06/08/10

    Try the chilli bajjis, it's surely the hottest appetizer you'll ever have! Caution: As hot as habenara. So eat at your own will!
