About Surinder Sroa and the Lotus Family

Surinder Sroa, the restaurateur behind the Lotus Family of Restaurants, carefully searches out organic, local sources for all his ingredients, like free-range poultry, wild-caught seafood, and organic, non GMO grains and vegetables. There are many vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options on the menu, as well. Even the rice gets Sroa’s full attention. His kitchen prepares organic brown rice that’s so light and fluffy, many of his customers prefer it to white. The only thing that isn’t local is the authentic spices, flown in from the Punjab in Northern India.

Our Customers, the Community, and the Planet.

Lotus Curry House may be a new restaurant, but creating a fine dining experience has been worked out since 1998 at Lotus Cuisine in San Rafael. Many rewards and accomplishments have accumulated every year since, including membership in the Best of Marin Hall of Fame. Like it, Lotus Curry will be a green business, with a zero-waste goal and a an energy-efficient kitchen. The Lotus reputation for care is sustainable, too. The service is fast, friendly and warm. Lotus is family-friendly, great for a date night, or a casual gathering with friends.
