I ate dinner at Sam's Pizza during both nights of my stay in Joshua Tree. I had Indian cuisine - not pizza - and it was fantastic. The only issue is that the restaurant is small, so if you are a solo traveler you will more than likely end up at a table in the back with a bathroom view. Service was prompt and I didn't have any of the issues that other commenters shared.

The Indian food here surpasses many of the better known authentic Indian restaurants in "Little India" in NYC. The chicken tiki was to die for as was the cauliflower and potatoes with some great fresh Nan bread. Service was excellent. Wish they were on the Upper Westside...

I know that sounds confusing, but it is a family run Indian restaurant with an actual sit down area for lunch and dinner. The Indian food is really good, a wide variety of Naan bread, their curry is homemade and the Indian coffee is excellent. If you still want pizza look behind the counter and you can see and order the Pizza options.

Saw pizza on the menu, but only had Indian food. Everything was delicious! So many different types of naan bread as well, all cooked right there. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I ate here while staying at the High Desert Motel next door. All the tables were full when we arrived, with people queuing to eat in and take away, which is always a good sign. We both had curries, which were tasty and plentiful. Great after a solid day's walking in the park!
