This small, casual restaurant in northern Sausalito has a devoted local following and draws a regular stream of visitors from around the Bay. Consistently ranked highly in many of our surveys despite the informal location in a plain building with no view. Cuisine is a unique fusion of Indian, Mexican, American, Pakistani and pure imagination. Part of the charm here is what we call “the spontaneous menu.” There is nothing reasonable you can request that Ashok, the gracious host, won’t try to prepare for you. No dairy in your dish? No problem. Gluten free recipe variation? Of course! Mild spices or extra red hot? No problem. Vegetarian or vegan version of a meat dish on the menu? Happy to do it! You can describe your favorite meal of all time in any cuisine and then ask the kitchen to surprise you with something Avatar’s-style you’re likely to love. I’ll stop there — you get the idea that this is a unique, very personal experience that has produced all these individual dining fans. Going off the menu and asking for unique flavor combinations adds to the cost of each dish, and the bill can add up without guests realizing it if everyone gets creative. If you do not enjoy having the restaurant host interacting with you during your meal this is not the right place for you. If you come in on the Ferry, the location is outside of most visitors’ walking distance from downtown Sausalito, so a visit requires a drive or a taxi.
Something else that people should know about Avatar’s? Confused about whether this is a restaurant or a character in a Role Playing Game? Disagree with any of our suggestions? Please let us know!
