Local friends often eat at Pradeeps and took us there for a special occasion. Server was very pleasant and did not rush us or leave us un attended- just right. We ordered many dishes and asked for family style set up and were pleased with all our choices. Definitely would return.

5 reviews 1.0 star rating 7/17/2016 I ordered take out by way of UberEats. I don't know if it was the UberEats menu, or what, but what I got was really of poor quality. We ordered Tandoori Chicken Pandora, and they were soggy, sitting in a plastic container with 2 pickled somethings and a couple of slices of onions. There... More

Picked up a great curry the other day. Good quality and generous portion. Will recommend going there. The mild was not hot at all

Lunch today was very good. Not excellent, but good. The service was very nice. It was a bit pricey for Indian food lunch in my opinion but this is a very high rent area. I will return.

If you're looking for some great vegan Indian food, look no further. A great selection for vegans. And get this, even their nan bread is vegan. I almost never see that.

If you're up for good Indian food then Pradeep's is just the right spot for you to get it. Family run business with a customer centric atmosphere adds to the experience. Not too spicy, as you can dial up the heat if so desired. Good Indian food. ...

We ate at Pradeep's while spending five days in Santa Monica. It's a small, laid back place lacking the white cloth formality of many Indian places, but it's nice and comfortable nevertheless. We enjoyed it very much. We started with the aloo ki tikki (potato pancakes) and onion bhaji (basically upscale onion rings) to start. Both were delicious and not... More

Ate here recently and enjoyed the visit. If you enjoy Indian food then this is pretty good. Not very spicy but good ingredients and decent service.

Ok. I'm spoiled by having a lot of East Indian friends who can cook like no one's business. So my bar is set pretty high. We went to Pradeep's with the intent on going to the R+D Kitchen a block over...however, there was an hour wait and we're impatient. Pradeeps only had a few people and so we pulled the... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
