Happy Hour Deals: Gaylord India

Posted By on Thu, Apr 16, 2009 at 1:01 PM

Here's a new addition to the Financial District happy hour scene: Gaylord India ("promenade" level of 4 Embarcadero Center, across from the Landmark movie theaters). The drink specials include Indian bottled beers for $4 ($8 for large bottles), house wine for $5.50, and selected cocktails for $6, but the real draw is the selection of $4 appetizers.

Tandoori chicken wings had a good spice rub and came with a refreshing cucumber salad, as well as mint and tamarind sauces (which come with all the appetizers).


lamb samosas had a tasty gamy filling and came with a small serving of

delicious channa masala (chickpeas in spicy sauce).

The one item I wouldn't order again was the interesting-sounding "assorted breads pizza style," which turned out to be a slightly dry naan stuffed with coarsely grated paneer. I guess "pizza style" just meant they sliced it into wedges.

Gaylord's happy hour runs from 5-7 Monday through Friday. As with many of the restaurants and bars in Embarcadero Center, after 5pm you can get four hours of free parking for a $5 minimum purchase. Just don't forget to bring your ticket and have them validate it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
