I liked the environment of the restaurant as they have the outside seating too. Tables have candle light to enjoy the food. Place is very clean and staff are courteous. Food wise I didn't like the Tandoori as the spices level was very less and should have been cooked better. The Paratha and brown rice was good. The Vindaloo Shrimp... More

I fall in love with special favorites here and only order one thing for months; the good thing is there's something for everyone. I look for strong and different vegetarian. I can't beat the choices on their lunches... but my friends who won't go anywhere where they can't find meat were just as pleased. The tomato soup is terrific; the... More

The Shahi Paneer is the best we've ever had! I think it was $14.95 and comes with lots of rice, lentils, and soup/salad. It was SO GOOD, and there was way too much for one person. The onion pakoras were crazy good - good naan too! The Samosas were ok, but a bit expensive. Everything else was a great deal... More

We had the Malai Kofta, and Sashi Paneer, and both were spectacular!! Seriously, this is some of the very, very best Indian food I've ever had - and I think I'm an expert! :) The naan was extra good too! And, there's free parking on the side-streets nearby.

Our most recent meal from this restaurant was a delivery which they handled with skill. Almost every dish exceeded our expectations. Sag Paneer was perfectly seasoned, tandoori chicken was just right for the kids, naans were tasty. We tried the spare rib appetizer and found the sauce too gloppy. Rice pilaf was great. They deserve their loyal following. We will... More

I have come here for many years and through various ownerships but the recipes remain the same - Each owner has consistently tried to keep the quality of the original owners. This is my favorite Indian restaurant in LA. The naan is exquisite and the Chicken Tikka Masala unmatched by any other Indian restaurant I've eaten at in LA. I... More

I admit it! I used a LivingSocial (pay $15 for $30) for this eatery and I am very happy I did. The whole vibe here is sweet! Their various naan breads were perfect; the Tandoori Chicken was spot on; rice just right; cucumber salad was more than enough to share. The extra hot sauce condiment ($1.95) was xlnt and hot....

Nothing in particular stands out. However, if you are looking for solid basic Indian food at a fair price and attentive service you will not be disappointed. Middle of the road.

i ordered a takeout from this place. The food is below average not good in terms of taste, freshness and spice levels.But the only good part is they took my order just 20 min before closing.

This is the most gross resturant I have ever been to. There were rats and roaches on the floor and running towards the kitchen. The food was pathetic and spoiled my stomach. Just try to peek into the kitchen. Shame such buisnesses are allowed.
