Excellent food in a modern, clean, atmosphere. If you are vegetarian (or even if you aren't) this place is a must go. They serve American mock meat which distinguishes them from many other vegetarian restaurants which are primarily Asian cuisine. Items on the menu with boxes around them are the most popular and the best. Strawberry lemonade is the freshest and most refreshing I have ever tasted! Would definitely come again!
For folks like me who like to watch what they eat and prefer to eat a lot of veggies - this place is the best in town. The quality of food, ingredients and taste is consistently good. The seasonal dishes are excellent and so are the regular menu items including burgers, bowls and salads. Sides like the Chargrilled Street Corn, Crispy Cauliflower and sweet potato fries are unique and super tasty. The portion sizes are usually generous though for some dishes you may need to get a side to fill up.
Great tasting food. The only thing I didn't like was having staff sweep up dirt next to me while I'm eating. I find that to be unsanitary, wait until there is no one in the area before you sweep, please.
Nice place in Santana Road where one can have vegan food. Good option for vegetarian. Try their buffalo wings a bit salty but tasty. I always order one. Its got good ambience and nice seating as well.
They really need to work on the cleanliness of the restaurant and laziness of staff... Maybe the quality of the food, maybe the layout of the restaurant, and most definitely making sure your staff speaks to their customers who come to them for help or questions. I stood at the register to no avail of an employee coming to help me. I see several girls standing around a computer talking to each other, too busy to help me apparently. I stood there for almost ten minutes before one of the three girls at the computer could stop to notice me. So unprofessional to discuss customers in front of them and I will be writing corporate. Watch out for the rats too! I have seen one running from the hallway in the early afternoon waiting in line for the singular bathroom with the broken door and poorly maintained cleanliness because they leave their back door open to what I'm guessing by the smell is a garbage? Also, I have never been so appalled by the service of the employees when I told them someone walked in on me in the restroom with some other key I didn't knew exist? This should not be my problem! Gross! Fix your disgusting restaurant and give me my tips back. Also where can I get my receipt since the cashier didn't give it to me? I didn't tip ten dollars... but especially would not for your awful cashier and moldy sandwich.

Very good Indian/Nepalese food. Staff are friendly. On a Tuesday night. We had to wait about 25 minutes so we walked upstairs to the bar for drinks to ease the denial of instant gratification. The Annapurna curry was good. The mango entry was superb, wire the delight. Many vegetarian potions.
I've been several times and it's worth driving into the city for. Don't expect a "fine dining" experience exactly. Just great food (spicy if you like that) and a cool, underground vibe (like literally).
I love Annapurna; it’s probably my favorite place in Seattle. I love their different curries; the meats have always been well cooked. They offer a variety of spice, and it’s the good kind of spice! Also the MoMos are great; I prefer the vegetarian one over the meat.
Delicious Nepalese food with a huge menu! I have never been disappointed by this place, and no matter what you like on menu, you're likely to find it here given the high number of options available. Portions, including servings of naan are generous, and prices are fair for the centrality of the property to the city. Plus even when it's packed, the food comes out very quickly! The only downsides I can see are the fact that the restaurant is awkwardly designed for waiting (so little space for waiting in general) and it can be pretty loud since it is a very popular spot with limited space.
Inexpensive and usually not too crowded, even on normally busy nights. Food is top notch. My go to when I have friends visiting.

All I can say is: Holy S*** For years, years, other places around the city have been my favorite for gluten free cuisine. Until I came here. The number of choices you have here for gluten free and vegan food overshadow most restaurants in the state. It is all delicious, the staff here are all amazing and friendly, and the chai tea is something you cannot miss. Please, I beg you, do yourself a favor and come over here and get a couple dishes. You will not regret it. I highly recommend the butter masala chicken dish. Best curry I have ever had in my life.
Nice little place. Patio sitting is quiet and refreshing. They served us with complimentary samosa appetizer and a dessert.
Love this place! Giant naan bread, delicious food & bottomless Chai tea, iced or hot. This is my favorite Indian restaurant in Seattle by far. The staff is wonderful too!
This is honestly the best Indian in the city, eat the madras chili Masala and you won't disagree. Service is amazing, food is amazing, the exterior looks tacky but goddamn is it good. Best kept secret in Seattle.
So far so good. I did notice beer prices are a little high. The menu looks great! The service has been really awesome. The location is a little to be left desired, but since I have a appointment a block away I figured I'd drop by for some Taj Mahal beer and salad. Nothing is disappointing accept the arcitechture which I'm assuming you work with what you got. Definitely would come back.

Excellent food. High ceilings and brick interior give this place a unique welcoming look. We went on a weekend when they had a menu with small items (wraps and dosas mainly). Everything had distinct flavor. Loved their food. Staff was super nice. Definitely would visit again.
Very tasty, authentic Indian cuisine. Nice setting, didn't love the park bench style seating inside. I have a bad lower back and sitting on a bench for that long isn't fun or relaxing. I'm not there looking to exercise my core, I want to relax and eat.
Looking at quality and quantity of food, I would say this restaurant is very costly. Food quality is average but prices are very high. I had food at many places in Seattle downtown and you can get better quality with more quantity food for less money in many restaurants.
No option for spicyness for lunch. Wanted it a little spicier. Otherwise a decent lunch spot in pioneer square
Food quality is superb. It feels freshly prepared. They rely heavily on spices like cardomam and cinnamon rather than just chilli (hot pepper), which is a change from every other Indian food place I have tried recently. Having said that, if you like your food a bit hot, you are out of luck, because they don't have any kind of hot sauce - they have chopped chillies if you want! Also double check ingredients listed in the menu with them, because we ordered Asian treat salad where main ingredient was listed as bean sprouts, and nobody bothered to tell us that there was a typo on the menu until they brought us something with large quantities of mushrooms in it(not listed in ingredients list!), and I decided to have them take it back because I hate mushrooms.

Amazing, authentic Indian cuisine with wonderful service! We brought friends from Georgia here it is so good! We will defiantly be coming back whenever we are in the city!
So we went to this restaurant for lunch as tourists in Seattle and had some elderly with us who only ate Indian food. We were a party of 10 adults and three kids. As soon as we entered, the old lady did not look happy so I checked with her if they could handle our order, she smiled and said, "Yes, of course". So we sat and started to order. Since we were a big party and as expected had different orders and orders that we did not put through all at once. But, we apologized for the inconvenience. The old lady was very rude to my husband, pointed at him with a pen from a distance and said " Hey you, I cannot make your tea right now because all the stove tops are occupied with the orders you guys placed. So your tea will be the last one to come out". I hushed my husband and said that was okay. Then one of our cousins ordered seafood platter or something- after all the order was placed, that is when she grew outrageously rude and shouted at him/all of us for not ordering all at once and that she had to overwork blah blah. At that moment, I suggested that we go to a different restaurant, but before we left one of the elders with us thought that we should let the lady know that she was rude, so he called her and said that she was very rude to us and they should have told us earlier if they did not have capacity to cook for that many people. That is when the young, son with the turban walked into us and literally thrashed us. He was loud and obnoxious in front of our elderly and 3 little 4 year old kids. "no one talks to my mom like that, people who talk to my mom like that cant eat at my restaurant blah blah". Our uncle tried to explain to him what actually happened but the dude was not ready to listen. Instead he got so aggravated that opened the main door and asked us to get out. He still was loud and disrespectful. That is when I lost it. I went to the counter and told him that I wanted to pay for the drinks that had already come out. He refused to take the money and said that he did not want any of our money because we insulted his mother. Our kids started to cry. There was a big scene and we had back and forth for about 15 mins. I was mad because we were with kids who have not seen us talk so disrespectfully with anyone and this guy was doing just that in front of our kids. I told him that we had kids and what he was doing was not right. He did not listen. Finally, his mother was scared by this time and realized what they had done so she accepted $20 bill from us for the drinks. we walked out but man what an experience. Until today, my kids ask me about that incident. So even if you guys like the food, which I bet is good, because his mom made it herself, chances are you will get shouted at and thrown out of the restaurant for ordering food.
We were tourists to Seattle and we had a worst experience and customer service in this restaurant. As soon as we entered the place the old lady in the counter rudely behaved and she said she will take the order only after 30 mins. It was in a tone that if we don't want to wait no need to have food there..We were very hungry and don't want to search another restaurant, so we decided to wait.. We chose a table and sat there for 10 minutes. She came and complained that we should've sit in a clean table as she has to clean ours again.. No courtesy at all.. We even didn't get water to drink and waited for 15 minutes.. I expect at least a basic respect to customer..
We came across Tandoori Hut by chance and we're glad we gave it a try.A good value ,all you can eat, for around 14 Dollars. Delicious freshly cooked food with a good variety. Recommended. Michael
Decent food yet small in proportions . Can lack seasoning at times and the meat was tough.service was lacking, meaning the waiter was innatentive to our table. Prices were reasonable, but not great considering dish size. Staff is minimally knowledgeable of the menu and region of produce origins .not sure if I would recommend this place if your looking for hospitality
