DOSA - Winner of 2009 Readers Poll for Best Indian. Dosa on Fillmore definitely makes my list of top Indian Restaurants in Bay Area. DOSA, San Francisco's finest South Indian Restaurant, opened a second location in the Fillmore district thanks to the success of the first one.  The new eco-friendly restaurant not only accommodates more guests but also highlights a greater breadth of Southern Indian specialties and offers a comprehensive wine and spice-infused cocktail menu.

Their popular Indian Lunch Buffet features many choices of delicious Indian dishes freshly cooked to perfection using centuries old traditional methods including the use of the clay oven (tandoori) fired up to 1000 degrees.

Zante Pizza in SFO

 Opened in 1986, Zante Pizza makes the best Indian Pizza in San Francisco, thus making it in the list of Best Indian Restaurants in Bay Area.
