In July 2016 the City of San Rafael blessed our restaurant with a brand new sidewalk!
As you can see by the attached photos the new sidewalk is beautiful and a big improvement over the old one.
There’s a lot of new things in downtown San Rafael, not just a new sidewalk. For example there’s also new SMART train station across the street from Lotus Cuisine.
One thing that has not changed is Lotus Cuisine of India, serving you the finest Indian food in downtown San Rafael since 1999.
Success in the Kitchen, the Community and Environmental Conservation
Established in the heart of downtown San Rafael, Lotus Cuisine of India has set the standard in the Northern Bay Area for not only its superbly delicious and health conscious Indian Cuisine, but for community service and commercial sustainability.
If counted, the number of culinary accolades this establishment has received during its existence could easily occupy all fingers on both your hands and start to trickle down to your toes. We won’t go as far as to name them all but feel free to take a gander on their website. We must emphasize there is more to this restaurant other than the world class North Indian styled menu (also featuring vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options) that has landed it a position in the Pacific Sun’s Best of Marin Hall of Fame.
The photo above exudes a feeling of community and the establishment’s constant generosity supports this notion. For the past ten years, Lotus has provided free Thanksgiving dinners to the less fortunate. No matter how much traffic occurs on this holiday during dinner hours, anyone, no matter what background, can have an opportunity to enjoy a warm, hearty meal.
Green business awards are a common occurrence for Lotus due to its consistent environmentally friendly operations. Notably, they are an MCE Deep Green Champion and contribute 100% renewable energy into the electrical grid.
