Indian in Pasadena

  • d

I will be in Pasadena for a day and would like to have a good indian meal/buffet I have heard good things about All India Cafe and Radhika's Cuisine of India. What do the LA chowhouds recommend in the Pasadena area? I will be with clients so I would prefer a menu with vegetarian and non-vegetarian items available.

  1. Radhika's!! Best Indian I've had in Pasadena :) LOVE that place. Their tandoori has so much flavor.

      I agree. Radhika is a superior Indian restaurant with a good atmosphere and very attentive staff.

    2. Try Sahara for middle eastern/lebanese......
      On Colorado East of PCC South side of street.....
      Many lamb, beef, chicken dishes as well as vegetarian choices.......
      Clean family run place.....
      Meat is cooked over wood coals.....
      Very good falafels....
      Easy parking unlike the old town area....

        I would go with All India, though they don't have a buffet. Got my non-ethnic eating dad into Indian food. Their tikka masala is excellent, and it's a very pleasant space.

          I second All India Cafe. They have a great selection of vegetarian items, and I think the food is better there than Rhadika's, although the atmosphere at Rhadika's is a bit more formal, if that's an important consideration.

        2. Looks like either All India or Radhika's would be a good bet. I'll probably end up at Radhika's, as there is a buffet for the folks not familiar with Indian food.


          1. It's probably too late, but East India Grill (or something like that) on the second floor on Colorado just east of Lake is my favorite. And you can eat with a nice view of the street happenings below.

              I believe that's New Delhi Palace, which IMO is the best Pasadena choice for Indian.
