We were visiting Los Angeles and a search on our Navigation system led us to this place. What luck ! It turned out to be one of the best Indian meals I had had in a long time.
It is a decent sized restaurant, not too large but not very small either (it probably has seating for about 40 - 50 people). There is street side metered parking and they also have their own parking in the back.
Our party included some vegetarians, so we ordered a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes - lamb korma, butter chicken and saag paneer along with naans and sodas.
The chicken and lamb were both fresh and tender, the gravy was rich and tasty with just the right amount of spices. The only word I can think of to describe the saag paneer is 'pure'. The spinach had not been crushed to a puree and stillretained a leafy texture, and it was one of the tastiest saag paneers I have ever eaten. The naans were warm and soft and stayed that way through the meal, unlike some places where they start getting chewy very soon.
We finished off the meal with a rice pudding and pistachio ice cream. The rice pudding was out of this world; the ice cream was standard fare, probably purchased from some local shop.
When we were leaving and I complemented our waiter on the quality of their food, he expressed his thanks and mentioned that they have been around for over 15 years at the same location.
All in all, a memorable meal. Will definitely revisit when I am in LA next.
