|Pamposh||4||5||No||No||$$$$||Top pick for Sonoma County. Don’t miss the tandoori
or apricot chicken. Well-trained staff and always-spot-on dishes from this SR
kitchen. Tikka is dead on.
|Sizzling Tandoor||3||4||Yes||Yes||$$$||Butter chicken beats tikka hands down. Extensive
menu can sometimes be overwhelming.Regional specialties are worth checking
out. Live entertainment including belly dancers and sitar music adds fun. Lunch buffet is solid, but not extraordinaty.
|Shangri-La||4||4||No||No||$$||Reasonably priced and close to SSU. Solid Tikka and
|Himalayan Tandoor and Curry House||3||3||No||No||$$||Nepalese dishes, plenty of vegetarian options that
reflect tastes of Sebastopolians.
|Yeti||5||3||No.||No||$$$||Best naan in Sonoma. Don’t miss the honey naan.
Hidden away in Glen Ellen it can be hard to find, but seriously. The naan.
