The Indian food at BadmashLA is some of the best I've had anywhere, even in India; I visit every time I come to Downtown LA! The pickles, fiery Goat Vindaloo,, Chai, and delicious ice cream sandwiches on Indian cookies, are all top notch.

Went here the huge number of reviews. Food is average. Place is good, service is good. Two of things we wanted were out of stock.

Badmaash is an outstanding Indian restaurant in LA. You could smell the aroma of their spices 100 meters a way. The place is a bit tiny and the food is pricy, but for the taste and the flavor is well worth it. Badmaash is famous...More

My friend and I shared an order of Naan, badmash chicken tikka and mango pork belly w tandoori broccoli. All was delicious and service was excellent. We spent $33 each w tip. We were happy but do note portions are quite small for the price.

Need a quick tasty Indian meal? Stop into Badmaash! Tandoori delights in an informal atmosphere. Try their white port tonic, aka "Gin and Tonic" for a place without a full liquor license.

We had the poutine fries, the ghost pepper lamb vindaloo, and the fish fry. Good food, fairly reasonable prices. Not a ton of food, but enough that we were both full when we left. Staff was attentive and very nice. All in all, we're planning...More

I am in love with this spot. A little hidden gem in downtown not far from City Hall. As is typical of most downtown locations parking can be a challenge, but once inside you know that its worth the search. ...but wait! is it? I've...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
