With exceptional chutneys and pappadam, enchanting service, and the coziest dining room in Pleasanton, India Garden has an atmosphere of grace. Curries and biryani fare better than treats from the tandoor oven, but all offer exceptional value. Formerly the much-loved Claude and Dominique’s Bistro, India Garden does justice to the building’s homey charm. The enclosed patio is good for lunch; there’s a special upstairs room for private parties; and the small back room, with its melon-colored walls and bloodred linens, offers intimate dining (at an easy price). Right off Main Street with plenty of parking, weekday lunch buffet, and free wi-fi, it’s perfect for single diners and pick-up orders after work. Lunch and dinner daily.
