They don't know how to treat their customers. It was a very bad experience and is never expected from an Indian. After interacting with there very intelligent attendant we cancelled our reservation. Will never ever visit them again.

I'm one of those terrible San Franciscans who has a hard time taking anything on that ugly stretch of Lombard seriously. Well, that attitude is a big mistake when it comes to Viva Goa (and everything else, bad me). It's pretty subtle, but Viva Goa...More

I drove here hoping for authentic food. The mulligatawny soup was good with delicate complex flavours and not at all spicy. I then ordered lamb vindaloo medium (I hate the "how would you like it?" With chilli then l stirred in at the last moment...More

I was in town alone and got a take out. The butter chicken and naan bread was awesome. Staff were very friendly. Spoke to other guests that say they come across town for this Indian Food. Was recommended by my hotel manager.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
