This place has excellent, authentic Indian food at a great price. We stopped in for a quick lunch on a weekend. You get the perfect amount of food and lots of fresh naan. Service was good and the atmosphere was relaxing and open. Highly recommended!!

Old Town is filling up with theme restaurants -- this is the real thing. Family owned and operated, it is consistently good and well worth adding to your list of regular stops.

Little tired indian restaurant in Pasadena Old Town district. Food quite tasty but no wow factor in food, decor or service. The above average reviews may possibly reflect the relative scarcity of good Indian food in southern California from my experience. Nevertheless if you are hankering for an Indian, this place might just satisfy you. If you like spicy hot,... More

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
