Used to serve great food. Place was closed for a couple of months or more i think, don't know why. Tried it today and food was Ok. Remember to ask the sweet sauce on the side if u don't want your snacks/chats to be sweet

We have traveled to India a couple of times and have had absolutely incredible sweets there. We live in San Diego and regularly go to the nearby desi grocery store (most affordable veggie's and fruits in town, truly...but that is another review). We were very happy to discover Surati Farsan Mart and their great selection of sweets. Love the coconut... More

Fast service, good food, cheap prices. Of course, it's not as good as the street food you find in India, but it is good enough for San Diego. The chaat and chole samosa are a favorite. We also like the bhel puri, pani puri, and dosa. Lately, they've been cash only which is frustrating but I hope they fix their... More

I had the Mini Thali, which was plenty of food; each item very tasty. Also had Marsala Tea which comes without sugar if you want. Most customers were Indian, which seems like a good recommendation to me. A very simple place with plastic dishes, a clean and quiet atmosphere, and reasonable prices. I am certain to return in order to... More

Food is average. They do a good job with the staples puri etc. but dosa is a bit oily and the spices overwhelm the taste of the potatoes. However, I do like the sweets selection and snacks. Worth to go there just for the snacks. They need to clean up the place a little.

Went there twice... Would go again. The food is regular Indian food. Tastes okay nothing spectacular. Not very spicy which I prefer if eating at a place regularly. They have a good selection of indian snack foods and sweets. Haven't tried any sweets so can't speak for them. Food is served fast. Restaurant itself is clean and has many tables... More

I know it sounds weird. You'd expect the Undhiyo and Chaat to be great here - which it is. But I lost my heart to Mysore Masala Dosa here. Awesome spicy.
