Welcome to Naturally Desi

Indian Cuisine Cafe in San Diego


Naturally Desi was started with a small catering business to serve Indian food in California. It was started 4 years ago by Archana Nirwan. Her dream was to expand and start her own Indian Fast Food Cafe.
Being born & brought up in India, Archana had her roots back there and an unbreakable connection with Indian Culture & Indian Food. To be more close to her roots & to bring American Indians came the idea of Naturally Desi.

Naturally Desi is an Indian Fast Food Cafe & Continental Bakery serving typical Desi food in San Diego, California.

Ab San Diego mei bhi lagega Indian Tadka!

We had a wonderful lunch here yesterday! The food was absolutely delicious. And the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be going back. I highly recommend the sliders... I forget what the proper name was for them.

I absolutely adore this place! I visited several times since their recent opening and it’s totally different from the other Indian restaurants I’ve been to. It’s feels much more like home and the decor is so fun and beautiful. The food itself is amazing! There’s a large variety and it's always fresh and piping hot. I especially recommend the vada pav starter, it has great flavor and spice. I also enjoy the rotation of delicious desserts and seeing what item is new for the day. I can't wait to make my way through their menu!

Went this past weekend on Saturday afternoon. Nice place with good clean ambience. Great that they offer complementary chai. I would have payed $2 for the full cup as well. We ordered their special paneer pakora. Only issue I had was that paneer was cold. I felt that they were not fried on order otherwise they would have been quite warm/hot. Will give the place another try with other menu items. Dessert item and mango lassi were fine as well.

This cafe has opened 3 weeks ago and is I think one of the best Indian cafes in San Diego. Nice ambience, good bollywood songs in the background, authentic Indian food - made me feel like home. Loved the Vada Paav, Samosa chaat and Noodles. Paani puri was okay and the curry of Chilly Paneer was good. The chai was good too and it was on house. The owner of the cafe is a nice lady. Overall had a wonderful experience. Will come again 🙂
