Reviews for Venus solano

I've been going to the location on Shattuck for well over a decade. I've been trying to support them during the covidocalypse but every time I get takeout the Solano location only has one poor guy running the kitchen and taking orders, sometimes with a line out the door. Where are the owners?? The breakfast is still good (I haven't tried the Indian selection yet), so stars for that and the lone guy doing all the work.

If you like good value, or good food, do yourself a favor and skip this restaurant for Indian food. A friend and I had dinner there and his comment was that he had better Indian food at home in his freezer. I would argue you could do better with Trader Joe's sauces, precooked shredded chicken breast and frozen rice. In either case, they would be much better value. His fish was frozen not fresh, and not cooked well. My chicken was dry and the rice was dry and stale. The full review

We ordered takeout last night and it was great! We got chicken tikka masala, lamb biryani, and the Brussels sprouts appetizer. All was super flavorful. I prefer my chicken tikka masala a little spicier, but I forgot to ask them to make it spicy. They gave us a free dessert, tiramisu, which was super nice of them as well!
