ZAGAT review of Lotus Cuisine



Our Summary Review

"Exquisite flavors of India shine" at this Bay Area trio offering "authentic", "perfectly seasoned" dishes, including "lots of gluten-free options", all at "reasonable" prices; diners "love the retractable roof" at the San Rafael original and the "convivial" atmosphere in Fairfax (both also have "tasty lunch buffets"), while the cafe is pegged as a "hole-in-the-wall", but all boast generally "friendly, helpful" service.

For the 10th year in a row Lotus has given back to the community for Thanksgiving.

In 2014 Lotus Cuisine and Cafe Lotus served almost 1,000 FREE meals for Thanksgiving.


We made the ABC Evening news! Watch it here:

There's no turkey, but there's Indian food. The line of people waiting in line for it stretches around the block and this has become a Marin County tradition for 10 years. We can thank one man who is extremely thankful himself.

ABC7 News followed the man into the kitchen who was about to serve more than 1,000 people Wednesday night, out of two restaurants and all for free. At Lotus Cuisine of India in San Rafael, Paul Sroa and his staff have turned it into a habit and self-imposed privilege for a decade.

"It is not a lot of work. It is a lot of feeling good because you are giving back," Sroa said.
