All India was empty when we arrived (not a good sign) but very clean and smelled incredibly good so we decided to stay.We were not disappointed. The... read more

It is a pretty well known fact by my co-workers who are from India that this is the most authentic and delicious Indian food in Pasadena. I come here about once a month. They have lots of great choices for Vegans like me.

I've only had Indian food a couple times, not my first choice when deciding where to eat. But we were with some Indian friends and they wanted to take us to this place since it was one of their favorite Indian restaurants. I left the ordering up to my friend, for the four of us, he ordered quite a bit... More

Love this place. Great lunch menu, which gives you a lot of food. We also ordered extra naan and mango chutney (yum) and some vegetable pakoras.

I like Indian food but I think this was only the second time that I actually went to an Indian restaurant. This place was highly recommended and after eating there I can see why. We ordered several different dishes so that we could all share. Everyone's dish was good but the vindaloo was my favorite...it was full of flavor. If... More

What I liked about this restaurant is the food and price value.It was cheaper here than at most happy hours and the quality was upscale.Beer .wine,Indian beverages and most of all ,even though I never been to India ,the food was not Westernized as many Indian restaurants are.
