modern Indian cuisine

August (1) Five is a modern Indian restaurant named for the date commemorating India’s independence from British rule. Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood, we invite our guests to explore the nuances of Indian cuisine rarely seen in the West.


Influenced by a range of culinary traditions, from colorful street foods to the hidden staples of home cooks, our menu is anchored in the regional cuisines of India. Using the best of the Bay Area’s seasonal organic ingredients, our chef melds traditional Indian preparations with contemporary techniques. 


The creative approach we bring to the food extends to our cocktail menu which deftly blends Indian spices and herbs, from the subtle to the assertive, with our bartender’s collection of craft spirits.  Our global wine list was carefully chosen to complement the array of flavors you’ll discover on our menus.
