Unexpected great food in a little strip plaza

Al-Noor was close to my hotel during a recent business trip. One evening I was heading back to the hotel and quite hungry but didn't want the usual fare. I saw Al-Noor on the corner and decided to give it a try, being a big fan of Indian food. I had the Tandoori mix plate and it was quite... read more

Made plans to come here for dinner and looked forward to it all day based on the great TA reviews. The staff was very nice and moved quickly about serving everyone in this small, crowded restaurant. Ordering our usual choices when choosing Indian cuisine we were surprised at how "oily" the lukewarm chicken dish was and how bland the rice... More

We often dine here for the best Indian food in the city, if not the state. Indian food does not have to be hot but this one will always be great. On this particular Sunday evening the place was packed but of course we got a table. The restaurant is located in a strip mall and the parking is always... More

Al-Noor is definitely one of the best Pakistani restaurant in the Los Angeles area. Owner/manager is extremely friendly. Service fast. Mix Kabab Platter is awesome. You have to try that if you are there.

Pakistani food is spicier (though not necessarily hotter) than Indian food with slight differences in the spices used. Al Noor offers both Indian and Pakistani food, but I was there for the Pakistani food (having eaten Indian food all my life). What a great discovery. Al Noor is in a slightly seedy part of Lawndale, is quite small (roughly 10... More

I discovered this Pakistani restaurant back in 1999, when one of my Pakistani college buddies took me there for lunch. Since, I have been back countless times and introduced dozens of friends to it. I've seen this place grow over the years, deservingly so. The food is fresh and tasty. Their naan bread is fresh and delicious (plain,onion, garlic -... More

I have been going to Al Noor Pakistani Restaurant for years. It is very small and not great decor- OK...the ambience is pretty bad--- BUT.....the food ROCKS! I thought this was my own little discovery until the place doubled in size (still small). My favorite dishes are the Chicken Tikka Masala with Garlic Naan bread, the Alu Pollak, and Alu... More

Unlike many competitors, Al-Noor has kept on going for years. I'll go there at the drop of a hat.

The vegetarian fare is truly exceptional - great overall variety. The mutton was pretty gross though.

I am not into spicy food but this place rocked my world. I thought their chicken masala and spinach dishes were the best. The owner even talked to us to tell us about Pakistani food and its history. We saw the place where they cook the Naan bread. It was a great cultural lesson. I have gone back since. If... More
