anyone been to Crown Of India?
Yes, if you're talking about the one on Santa Monica. It is the best Indian food restaurant I have ever been to.
I've been going there since they opened 2 and a half years ago (since you posted this, actually) because I was so happy to have a new Indian food restaurant in the area. The ambiance isn't super amazing, but the food is the absolute best. And I've had a LOT of Indian food in Los Angeles.
Yes, I absolutely agree. Just went and it is by far the best Indian I have had in LA. Was expecting to be disappointed after all the fancy, over-priced, bland restaurants I've been to. Had given up hope. But they made delicious Butter Chicken, with a complex, spicy sauce that had us both sopping up every last drop with our perfect Galic Naan. As the daughter of an Indian who ate the original Butter Chicken at Mothi Mahal, I can say it was excellent. And the lunch specials are an exceptional value. Highly recommended. And it's in my neighborhood which is perfect as we plan to go here often.
