Yelp Review
I spotted this place from across the street and I’m really glad I went in.  One of the owners recommended a couple of dishes to order together–one was a deliciously spicy vegetable mixture, and the other was a variation of stuffed naan.  It came with raita, which complemented well.

The atmosphere is as vibrant as the spice palette. A visually resonant paint job of tangerine/mango and teal is a wake-up call for the eyes. Paintings of Indian countryside scenes, or portraits and other photographs, add more exotica.

Lotus Chaat and Spices is the North Bay’s only destination for the delicious snack foods of India: dishes that will not only nourish you but also tingle your tongue and provoke your palate with a kaleidoscope of flavors, textures and spices

Indian vegetarian snacks
Many of the items are vegan. They use organic ingredients when possible.

Great service, delicious food!
I guess this place is really new, but happily lacking in the problems usually associated with that. To start off, the service was great!

Dining review: Indian street food makes its way to San Rafael
Chaat lovers who’ve had to trek to Vik’s in Berkeley take heart — you can now find the delicious Indian street food closer to home. And for those who have never tried it, Lotus Chaat and Spices is a great introduction.

Get ready to chaat
Imagine an all-vegetarian restaurant that has such exotic foods even card-carrying carnivores will find it an instant attraction. Lotus Chaat has opened in San Rafael, part of the Lotus family of Indian dining establishments from Fairfax to Novato.

Chaating It Up
Lotus Chaat and Spices, a new casual Indian eatery and market on a nondescript stretch of Fourth Street in downtown San Rafael, is proof that delicious, affordable eats can be found in the most unexpected places.
