Okay Indian Food, Don't Order Extra Rice

We tried out this restaurant because it was close to our hotel in the Financial District. The service was great, and our waiter was very attentive.

We started with the veggie samosas which nice and hot. Between us we ordered sag goshi, chicken vindaloo, bengan bartha, and spinach naan. The dinner was served with two small dishes of rice which we assumed came with the dinner, since rice has been included in the price of every other meal I've ever had at Indian restaurants in my home town. The rice for the dinner cost $12. Ask them not to bring rice, because the rice was not worth $12.

The vindaloo had taste but not a lot of heat. Even if you specify spicy, be warned that this dish may not contain the kick you're expecting from a vindaloo. The other dishes were good, but nothing could really offset the fact that we just paid $12 for rice.

Other than feeling overcharged for the rice, the rest of the evening was pleasant enough. Again, don't expect a lot of heat on the vindaloo, but the food is otherwise well prepared and presented.

What's the big deal?

Disappointing for one of the few Indian places in the Financial District.

Zagat should reconsider their ratings for this restaurant!

After one of those long cold days in san francisco, i was expecting to have some hot spicy indian food. I had to wait to be seated, the hostess was an indian lady who seemed very confused as to where to seat me which took more than five minutes. The food was mediocre, but i didn't know that human hair was a part of the ingredients. when i brought it to their attention, they told me they will make me a fresh one but i am pretty sure they just threw the hair out as it still contained the meat that i had partly cut. On top of that the owner of the restaurant kept bothering us with his appearances and his lengthy life stories. You decide.

Blandest Indian Food

What a waste of a cab ride. I was really looking forward to some great indian food, especially since thise was rated by Zagat. But I was disappointed. There was just no spice or flavor to the whole meal. The server didn't even bother to ask how spicy we wanted our dishes. The lamb samosa was dry and crumbly, the masala and bhana was mediocre. The only thing I enjoyed was the wine and the honey ball dessert. The host and server were friendly and prompt but I don't think I would go back...the food is just to bland.

Greasy, pricey and sub par. Hair in your food is complimentary

I ate at this place admittedly a year ago but my dismal experience is still fresh in my memory. I heard they may have remodeled the place since I went but I think this is still worth a read. Just goes to show what kind of establishment this is...

Incredible Indian food can be found at many hole in the wall restaurants where spices and flavors rule. Upscale Indian cuisine can be great too, but Gaylords is just horrendous. We ordered some standard dishes I tend to order regularly at Indian restaurants- mixed vegetable curry, chicken tandoori and naan. First of all, there was a disgusting gray hair baked into my naan. After that, I could barely eat anyway it made me ill. When I complained, the waiter stared at me like he did'nt understand what the big deal was. Finally he brought us a new basket of naan as a consolation prize.

We were also very disappointed with the oily vegetable dish we had ordered and dry chicken that was served to us. Something to write home about to complain and rant.

The service at this place is pretty standard when it comes to Indian restaurants but for the price they charge, you would expect something special. Also the dining room itself was disgustingly old with stained carpets, teetering chairs and a bathroom without doors on the stalls, blah blah I could go on.

Stay away from this nasty place for your health and sanity!

eh, ok I guess

The curry was just OK, smelt better from outside and bizarrely all the curries we ordered were sweet. I'd go back, but not in a hurry. Staff were friendly.

Not the place if you want to try Indian food.

For the price for buffett, they have very little options and the deserts were no were close to being Indian. Either the chef doesn't know or doesn't care.
Tandoori checkin should be nice and dry outside and lil juicy inside. It is kind of juicy and dripping.

Wouldn't go again if I want to taste Indian food.

Ugh! What a rip-off

After reading the mixed reviews we decided to give this restaurant a try. Big mistake. We ordered our meal, specifically requesting the entrees extra hot. We also ordered 2 beers. The beers didn't come with the appetizer, and when the main course came, we again requested them. Perhaps they'd forgotten? The rice that always accompanies the food was spooned onto our plates by the waiter. We immediately noticed that it was approximately 4 forkfulls for each of us. What we ordered as extra spicy was extra mild. No flavor, let alone hot. Plus, the portions were tiny, to boot. The waiter came around and we complained about the spiciness not being there. He took back our meals and a few minutes later they were back, with cayenne added to them. For hot food to be properly hot it has to be cooked with the peppers; not have peppers added at the end, else the flavors don't blend. This was the case with this meal. Flavorless, but hot. The rice quickly ran out and we asked for more. When the bill came we'd been charged for 2 plates of rice at $4.75 each. Never in our lives had we been charged $9.50 for the plain rice that accompanies our meals! We decided that covered most of the tip. You are better off searching online for a good curry recipe than wasting your time and money at Gaylord.

I love Gaylord's!

I came here for the first time when I was 13 and thought it was magical. There were a number of kids there obviously going to prom, the view was great, and the service and food were excellent. I've been back 3-4 times since, and have always been treated with the utmost respect. the last time I was there was on my birthday. We were seated near a table with kids having a melt-down. The staff all hurried to move us to a great table. I think the food is great - love the pappadam and naan. I don't know why this restaurant doesn't receive more attention! Go Gaylord's!

give it a go!

I gotta disagree with the negative postings... the food is awesome. Anyone who appreciates indian food would love coming here. The cocktails were inexpensive and the mango martini went particularly well with the food. Gotta say tho, bland indian food is kind of an oxymoron... And this place doesn't serve anything that doesn't excite the mouth.
