Bombay Curry House?

I'm looking for an Indian restaurant near the Maria to take out of town guests w/ Indian food cravings. Bombay Curry House looks like the only Indian restaurant in the area...anyone know how the food is? Are there other good Indian restaurants nearby?

Need Nice, Simple Seafood Dinner recommendation

That's a tough one...good seafood in the city is usually expensive. If you're willing to cross the bridge into Sausalito, I'd recommend going to Fish. It's the definition of unpretentious, most entrees in the $15-20 range, and they serve the freshest local seafood you'll find anywhere. Parking is no problem, naturally, and it's located right on the bay.

Fresh Masa for homemade tortillas?

Thank you for all of the great suggestions. I visited La Estrellita Tortillaria and purchased some of their fresh masa. I would have checked out the restaurant as well but it closes early during the week -next time. The masa is made from white corn and is, in fact, fresh; not reconstituted from masa harina. I haven't had a chance to visit any of the city recommendations but I'll post as soon as I do. Thanks again!

Fresh Masa for homemade tortillas?

Hello -Just back from Mexico and I'm craving homemade tortillas. I bought a tortilla press, comal, etc. but haven't been able to find fresh masa (the dried masa harina isn't the same.) Does anyone know where I can find high quality fresh masa to make homemade tortillas in the Bay Area? I live in the Peninsula but work in the city and am willing to drive. What about somewhere in Redwood City?

Thanks!

Best Turkish in Bay Area (doner kebab, hookah?)

Hello,

I’m looking for a great Turkish restaurant in the Bay Area. I’ve found a few recommendations in past posts (New Kapodokia (Redwood City), A La Turka (SF), Bosphorous (Berkeley), etc). Are there any others I’m missing? I live in the Peninsula but am willing to travel for great food. Also, does anyone know a place that serves truly authentic Doner Kebab? I’m also interested in finding a good Hookah bar. Thanks in advance!!

Fun SF Restaurant for group of 10

Hello:

I'm planning a birthday dinner for next Saturday and am looking for a restaurant in San Francisco to take a party of ~10. The type of cuisine and neighborhood is not important but there need low-cost options for my student friends and good vegetarian menu items for my veggie friends. A fun atmosphere and/or the presence of nearby bars to migrate to after dinner would also be a plus. Any ideas?
