This restaurant exists in old town Pasadena in the vicinity of many Asian restaurants. The owner is the cook. He combines North India menus with South India dishes. Very delicious at very reasonable prices. The restaurant is small and more intimate. There is rich cultural décor all around. Two sidewalk tables offer outside seating. Public parking is directly across the... More

All India is a small, nicely decorated place in Pasadena with friendly service. They offer quality Indian food at reasonable prices. The lunch specials, served thali style (small bowl appetizers, condiments, vegetables and rice) are a particularly good deal. As with all Indian places, specifying the desired level of spice is very important. The detault level, mild, is frequently a... More

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Pasadena. The menu is quite extensive and as far as we can tell, everything is good. The naan is to die for. As the name suggests, it doesn't specialize in any particular region of India so there's a wide range of choices and spiciness. The service is very good. We used to go... More

My wife and I enjoy good Indian food - she is vegetarian, and I am definitely not. But we eat there from time to time, and we are never disappointed. I enjoy the chicken tikka marsala and my wife always gets the vegetarian combo plate. Food is always good. One thing that bothered me last time I was there though:... More

It was random pick up of the restaurant. We wanted Indian. We have a set of menu we always order. It was a little different to what we normally have in Warsaw. At the end we were happy to try it.

The waiters/waitresses are kind and that is all. I am not indian but in my belly there are thousands of indian dishes taken in UK and the rest of Europe, of course India and some in US. The sauce with the complimentary poppadoms was fine. I have ordered lassi, natural rice, kulfi, chicken vindaloo and paratha. The last three were... More

This place is a rare find. I have tasted some of the best Indian in Europe and on the East Coast. I wasn't having any luck with finding a good Indian restaurant in California until I found this place. The food looked, smelled and tasted fantastic. The flavors were some of the best I have ever had and portions were... More

We were meeting friends for dinner - some were carnivores, some vegans. And we had a dog with us on a relatively warm evening. This great little restaurant didn't have just something for everyone, it had something GREAT for everyone! Decent selection of Indian beers, al fresco dining so the dog could lie down outside, superb service staff. The seasonings... More
