looking for the best Indian food

  • t

I know you guys can help me. I need to take some people out for Indian food this weekend. Pls advise which place is good without travelling to Artesia.
Gaylord? Nawab? Akbhar? Let me know...

Thanks in advance.

  1. I vote for Ambala Dhaba on Westwood Blvd. if it doesn't need to be too fancy. The interior is nice but casual, and there's no alcohol but you can bring it.

      Forget Gaylord. You pay high prices for a very pricy decor, and that's all you'll get!

        The comments on Sagebrush Cantina are at March 20 below

    2. I like India's Oven on Beverly west of La Brea. I've never had a bad meal there. The food is fresh, and the service is good.

      They were out of Kingfisher the last time I was there, but they had some other Indian beer (Tah Mahal?) which was not as good, but was wet and cold.

      It's casual...not sloppy, but not dressy, either.

      1. Artesia comes to Westwood without the paper plates; Ambala Dhaba on Westwood Blvd., just north of Santa Monica Blvd. If you're looking for something more trendy there's Bombay Cafe on Pico near the 405, but a warning, it can get loud and crowded. If you want ambiance, Bombay Palace is beautiful and serene on Wilshire near Robertson. Surya, on 3rd near Crescent Heights has good food, nice atmosphere. Honestly, I'm happy in any of those places.

        1. surya on third street gets my vote.
