Cafe Lotus Pacific SunLotus is proud of the many compliments and awards we received, like being Best of Marin since 1999.

“Finally, a top-quality Indian restaurant expertly preparing and serving a significant selection of vegan cafedishes. I’m in love! Jon C., Sonoma

The people that own this place are so nice! If you eat meat, the Butter Chicken was something that we enjoyed. Everything is pretty delicious. – Best M. San Francisco, CA (Yelp)

Eating together with those we love, eating nutritious food that has been prepared with love – this can nourish our inner needs, as well as our bodies. Taking time at meals to talk to each other and enjoy the meal as a shared sacrament is rare today. We need to slow down, take time to prepare nutritious meals and rearrange our schedules so that we can be together.”

Proper Indian cooking uses spices not just for good taste, but for their inherent health benefits and to balance the diet.
