Indian Restaurants in Artesia

  • c

I have been meaning for some time now to check out the selection of Indian restaurants in Artesia but don't know where to start. Does anyone have any suggestions of good places to eat? North and South cuisine are both fine. Vegetarian is a plus. Addresses are also appreciated! Thanks.

  1. I have never been to UDUPI PALACE (562 860-1950), but it is recommended on If you can get to Pasadena, you might like to try All India Cafe at 39 S. Fair Oaks (626)440-0309. Lots of good veg. dishes.

      As it happens, I'm heading down to Pioneer Boulevard for some marvelous Indian food tonight. I can only attest to the quality of the food at Woodlands: very good.

      Woodlands Indian Cuisine
      11833 Artesia Blvd (& Pioneer), Artesia
      (562) 860-6500

      But here are other places you could consider:

      Little India Grill
      18383 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia
      (562) 924-7569

      (Praised by gf at
      Ambala Dhaba

      Standard Sweets and Snacks

      Bombay Sweets and Snacks

      Surati Farsan Mart

      Jay Bharat Restaurant
      18701 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia
      (562) 924-3310

      (Thi Nguyen and Jonathan Gold both like JB.)

      Udipi Palace
      18635 Pioneer Boulevard
      (562) 860-1950

      And see the excellent L A Times article on which I've based this selection; I've linked it below.

          i've enjoyed the luncheon buffet several times at 'ashoka the great' on pioneer. it's a good way to sample the fine curries and salads of southern cuisine. and, you are brought freshly heated flatbread (roti? i can't remember the name), which is excellent. also, there's high quality fresh fruit to cleanse and cool the palate afterward, so that's kind of nice. it's 6.95 per person, i believe, a bargain. or you can order on your own, off of their formidable menu.

          the atmosphere is nice, a bit formal, with linens and fairly attentive staff, in keeping with their more profitable dinner crowd, but the lunchtime masses are a mixture of indians and locals, which i think is very good, and usually all are quite happy to be there. as was i.

          and now, i must go eat.

    2. If you're looking for very casual (paper and styrofoam plates), Ambala is very good. There is a chicken on the menu there that is cooked in yogurt and spices, which give it a green tinged skin, which is wonderful. There is also an Ambala sweets shop in the same strip mall.
