I wish Tava had thought of something more original rather than trying to duplicate the 'whole' chipotle model without understanding that chipotle is Mexican food! I was not impressed with any of their dishes. Indian food does not go well by mixing roti with rice.. The staff had no clue about the origin of the meats. You are in SF... Expect to get questions about organic, humane vs GMO chicken or meats. It's a waste of a great location in SOMA... sorry :-(

This is my go to place for lunch. Its essentially Indian Chipotle. This allows me to get good quality, tasty food quickly so I can make it back to work in time. I enjoy both the Burrito style and the plate. It is a ton of food so go hungry.

I love this fast food place. Very tasty food with normal price tag. I even buy back home sometime.

Like the concept, probably could flavor the curries up a bit more and could get real Naan instead of the tortilla-ish version. Service was great. Overall a good place to drop in for lunch, they give all the *-free options for the heath conscious people out there.

A great option for fast food close to work .. It is the Indian Chipotle ... and taste is good. Went there on its opening day and have been a regular. One thing thats changed now is the long line during lunch time... so they are doing the right thing. A complaint if I can call it that is the servers go easy on the rice & veggies during the peak hours and go overboard if you go after the peak times (after 1.15PM). I dont like wasting food so I make it a point to ask them to reduce the quantity to a more reasonable level. Have already and will continue to recommend it.

I was excited to try this place because I had always thought about the fusion between the two types. Sadly, I was disappointed by the taste, quality and selection. Although you can compare they style and service to Chiptole or Qudoba, it still doesn't capture the Indian taste in a burritto. The tikka lacks flavour, the mango lassi is light, and the roti leaves much to be desired.

This place is really good. Think Chipotle but with Indian food. I like to get the paneer with daal in a buroti (it's like an Indian flatbread rolled up like a burrito). The also have salad options, rice bowls etc. If you haven't been, it's worth a shot. If you want authentic Indian cuisine though, this should not be your choice.

I'm not a novice when it comes to wild burrito-fusion food items (kimchi burrito, sushirrito, ie), so I decided to try this little place the next day after having eaten Thai food nearby. I came in for lunch and the place was well-designed, with a main seating area, and a smaller hall towards the back. So I stepped up to the counter and ordered what they call the Burroti (that's right, a burrito using a roti wrap instead of tortilla), and it almost didn't happen, because the employee said that they were having trouble with the machine. Still, she offered to give it a try. She grabbed a freshly-rolled dough and put it into the flattening machine, and goodness gracious, it worked. I decided to get their cheapest meat (chicken)-- with tikka sauce, and all the vegetables (totally forgot to tell her to take out the jalapenos until it was too late), then added yogurt and cilantro sauce. Having also eaten Indian-inspired burritos from Urban Turban in Berkeley, there was quite a feat it had to reach in order to thoroughly impress me, and although it's not as great as Urban Turban's, I will say that it was good and affordable. The chicken was very tender, the roti had a nice texture, and the veggies made it really fresh. Overall I would recommend Takva to those who have yet to try an interesting non-Mexican burrito. For lunch, I think this is a good place to consider!
