Terrific Indian food and ambience at Masala's in San Francisco! A take out from Shalimar, Pakhwan, or Naan N Curry makes you feel like you are bringing a bit of Bombay into your home. However, sometimes you want a sit down Indian meal in surroundings which are a modicum more uplifting and safer at night than these tenderloin dhabas (Indian word for restaurant). Masala's menu is considerably more varied and its food less oily, without sacrificing taste. In particular, the Kabuli Nan, which is stuffed with raisins and nuts (although it tasted like marachino cherries) was a new delight - sweet, but not too sweet. All the dishes were consistently good. The back of the restaurant is a separate area, suitable for a large group or party. Most of the main dishes range from $7-11. The address is 1220 9th Avenue, 415 566-6976. Dinner only - while the take out menu says they are open for lunch, they are not.
