Celebrate Diwali at SF's progressive Indian restaurant ROOH

SAN FRANCISCO -- Diwali is a five-day celebration with food, fireworks, special candles, and lamps. And San Francisco-based Indian restaurant ROOH is honoring the festival of lights with delicious food and festive décor.

"'Rooh' means soul or spirit, it represents the spirit of Indian cuisine, through the dining experience," described ROOH owner Anu Bhambri.

The popular establishment is hailed as one of the most forward-thinking and elegant restaurants in the Bay Area.

"We call it progressive because we use California seasonal produce Indian spices," said ROOH's Chef de Cuisine Pujan Sarkar.

"Our goal is to keep the flavors of the traditional dish intact, but use the modern produce," added Bhambri.
