I don't know anything about Indian food...

So, I have a friend in from out of town. Our paths crossed on business trips. My friend goes out of his way to travel to the AV just to have lunch with me and then drive back to LAX. That's a heck of a commute for a lunch. I figure I can at least try to find a good... read more

Mahli's is a friendly local Indian restaurant that we visited at the Palmdale location. The staff is very attentive to the customers giving good service. The food is the best I have had in California. The décor is simple & well done. It's atmosphere feels like a bit of India. The orders we had were appetizers: beef samosas, main courses:... More

I had the Chicken tikka marsala, garlic naan, and steamed rice for dinner. I thought the food had just the right amounts of spice and gravy and the chicken was exceptionally prepared. I usually approach Indian restaurants in the states with a degree of doubt having lived in Chennai and worked there for years in the past. I think Malhi... More

Walk into that restaurant and the smell of spice transports you to food heaven. Ok, I admit I love Indian food but this is one of the best restaurant in the Antelope Valley. The majority of the food of course is vegetarian but you can order chicken and lamb. Hand made Naan is outstanding. as well. The buffet is gone...great...it... More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants around and one of my favorite places to eat. The prices are reasonable and my family can order food that is not spicy. The buffet is not as good as ordering an entrée, but it is still satisfactory. I do the buffet when I feel like being a glutton. Get the Indian... More

I'm not a big Indian food eater, but I've been here twice and it really is good. What more can I say?

The meal was good but being British we are very used to Indian Curry's and we both believed that the main dishes lacked taste and spice. I guess by now I should know to order 'Indian hot' and not bother with anything less spicey. The garlic naan bread was lovely and the rice light and fluffy. Overall the meal was... More

Lancaster Location: 2007 W. Ave. J. Lancaster, CA 661-945-8009 We were here at lunchtime and were in a bit of a hurry so I tried the buffet while my boyfriend ordered soup and garlic naan. Neither of us were impressed. The buffet: lentil soup didn't have much flavour nor the vindaloo chicken; the best was tandoori chicken. The chicken soup... More

My family regularly eats at Malhi's in Palmdale. Indian food is one of our favorites and Malhi's is a very good option for a decent price. They have a lunch buffet every day and, for those who don't want to eat 'all you can eat', there is a low-cost lunch special - two entrees, rice, & bread etc. for 5... More
