Try Shersha Exotic Cuisine of India in Marina del Rey - If you have any quetions about trying Indian food, start with a restaurant that serves delicious portions. Once time we had the Meat combination platter which offered chicken, and lamb with rice and a dessert of your choice, my friend had the vegetatian platter. It was delicious and you could take some home. Try their Mango or plain lassi (which taste like the Persian doogh with mint). On Monday and Tuesdays, they have a delicious buffet where you can try chicken tandoori, chicken curry (note: menu may change) and there are several vegetarian dishes that taste great with Naan bread and perhaps a sprinkle of a sauce (try the green spicy pesto like sauce or tamarind (sweet) or yogurt sauce. Vegetable favorites are spinach with cheese cubes, allo gobi - cauliflower with potatoes in a mild delicious sauce, chick peas or lentils. And for dessert, on the buffet you can try the rice pudding, mango pudding, the round pastry - gulab jamun and a puree of carrot. A nice way of experiencing India's cuisine.
