Tiny Cafe Lotus Offers Much To Enjoy
Cafe Lotus is one of the 3 Lotus Family of restaurants in Marin County owned by Surinder “Pal” Sroa and his family. Cafe Lotus serves authentic, home-style Northern Indian cuisine prepared with organic ingredients and fresh spices.
In his late teens, Surinder Sroa came to the United States from northern India, leaving behind nine older siblings, his dad’s grocery and spice business, and a country he thought just wasn’t for him. Without a firm plan, his ship landed in California where he made his way to Mill Valley. It was there he met his wife, and almost 20 years ago, at a dinner out at a local Indian restaurant, he felt moved to do it better. Today, with three Marin restaurants and more coming, clearly Sroa has a knack for training good chefs, procuring quality ingredients and delighting his customers.
Café Lotus in Fairfax is the smallest. Almost 10 years ago, Sroa expanded into the unassuming, wedged-in storefront location left by Cafe Tandoori. It’s hard to know where to stand when the closely aligned tables, and there are fewer than 10 of them, are fully occupied in the tight quarters. But the restaurant is about to expand into the space next door and increase seating capacity.
