I love my Indian Food, and when we are in SM, we do tend to have a meal here, if we are in a curry mood. The food is reasonably priced, the clientele "Interesting" - movie moguls with their "Nephews", former Diva's with their "Nephews"....More

Excellent food, but be aware this is a real Indian place, the service and the ambient is Indian, not american, it is not a trendy place with super nice and good looking waiters (not that they are rude whatsoever). The menu allows you to make...More

Stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. So glad we did! While the service isn't 5 star it certainly wasn't poor. We are over here on holidays from Australia, and being the first Indian restaurant we've visited over here, we're not sure if it is usually...More

Never been to an Indian restaurant that doesn't include the rice with the entree AND serves minute rice instead of Basmati rice when it IS ordered! Each of our three entrees was skimpy. Service wasn't good. This made for the feeling of being ripped off.

What can I say: we only ate there because there was a 45 minute wait at every other restaurant in Santa Monica. The food was overpriced and very skimpy. The service was non existent. We had to ask for rice ( not included) And on...More

This place is horrible. It demonstrates what happens when greed overcomes skill in the restaurant business. The portions are insultingly small, about the size of your palm. The rice is, too. We ordered chicken curry, vegetable curry and naan. Our friends ordered lamb curry and...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
