Lotus SF Indian CuisineThe Finest Indian Cuisine Coming to the Mission District in San Francisco

We are extremely grateful to announce the imminent opening of Lotus SF in the Mission District this Summer. Our new location has been years in the making, but like with the lotus flower that it is named after, this oasis of authentic earth-friendly Indian cuisine took time to fully blossom.

Our goal with Lotus SF is simple. Offer the city of San Francisco a modern Indian cuisine that is healthy and green.

Our setting is the heart of the Mission, right on Mission Street in a newly renovated neighborhood.

Wait until you see the new menu! Our recipes are the result of fine tuning our favorite family recipes. Our take out concept will revolve around tiffin containers lunchboxes.

In just a few short weeks we’ll invite you all to our grand opening to Lotus SF!

Cafe Lotus RestaurantMarin Independent Journal your local source for breaking news, sports, business, classifieds, and entertainment in Marin wrote an article about Cafe Lotus your favorite Indian restaurant in Fairfax.

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.

Sartaj India Cafe by Lotus

Sartaj India Cafe is Opening Soon!

Have you heard? The 4th Lotus restaurant in Marin is opening in Sausalito this Summer!

Exciting news for fans of Lotus contemporary Indian cuisine. Owner Surinder Sroa has purchased Sartaj India Cafe on Caledonia Street in Sausalito and will be relaunching it as Sartaj by Lotus.

After completing ADA compliance work, he will consult with his friends and previous owners, Gurmail and Balbir Basi, who were in the space for 21 years and have many loyal customers. He would like to stay true to their northern Indian menu but will simplify it and focus on sustainable, organic ingredients like he does in his other restaurants.

The restaurant will be open breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This is Sroa’s fourth Lotus location in Marin and next up for this busy family is the opening of a fine dining restaurant in the Mission district of San Francisco later this year.
