This was the last leg of our San Francisco Napa trip and we stayed in Half Moon Bay the last 3 days. Happened to walk around the downtown area and came across Ark Grill. The restaurant is casual and small but nicely decorated with comfortable seating. But the food is spectacular and reasonably priced My wife and I live in... More

This quaint, converted house on Main St makes the perfect setting for this family run restaurant. We have been many times and enjoy the Bollywood movies playing on the back wall, so fun! Just this last time I noticed family photos in the back room. We feel like guests in a friends home who has invited us for a delicious,... More

Even though I live in North Carolina, I have eaten here 3 times in the past 2 years as I make a point of stopping in every time I visit my family in Half Moon Bay. It is a standout as an "ethnic" option on the coastside. They offer a full dinner menu, but my most recent trip I had... More

I was really excited to try this restaurant because I've loved Indian food for years and had it many times all over the Bay and Sacramento area. We arrived to find only one other person dining at the restaurant so the lady sitting at the desk told us to "sit anywhere." We wanted to sit by the window (there were... More

Servings are good size , the naan is to die for and the prices are reasonable. They serve meat, vegetarian and vegan dishes as well.Surprisingly not spicy at all. If you have questions just ask the hostess and... More

The Ark is one of the newest restaurants on the CoastSide, and our only Indian restaurant. It is a family-owned place on Main Street and it specializes in North Indian cuisine. Portions are decent, the price is right and the food is very tasty. Their naan bread is superbly done with light charring that gives it a little zing. I... More
