ISO - Good Indian Rest. Brentwood or W.LA?

Looking for comfortable place for dinner for four. Due to traffic and time constraints it has to be in those areas, which rules out Ambala Dhaba and Nawab.. Has anyone been to the restaurant on the second floor of the mini-mall that housed the original Bombay Cafe? Appreciate any suggestions.

  1. If you like South Indian, I like Annapurna on Venice. Not sure if that's close enough for you though. Not fancy, but yummy!

      not indian per se but just went to Jasmine Market and it was definitely among the best South Asian food I've had on the westside.

      Had the fish sauce rice noodle soup, chicken curry, egg rolls, samosas and garlic naan. all came out to $20 and could have fed 3-4 ppl. this place is da bomb! the owner/family who run it are SUPER nice and helpful.

      i'm not indian but it pretty much tasted like a mix of indian with a little southeast asian thrown in. TASTY!!

      Jasmine Market
      4135 Sepulveda Blvd
      Culver City, CA

    2. Yes, it is called All India Cafe and I like it there. They are very friendly, good service and good food. I also like the Clay Pit which is a little nicer in Brentwood is also a good choice.

      1. I also rec All India Cafe.

        Other hounders highly rec Agra as well, which I believe is in the area you request.

          Thanks people. How do you say 'muchas gracias' in Hindi?

        2. Jaipur on Pico just east of Westwood is solid and dependable, if unspectacular.

            I second Jaipur as solid and dependable - not something that I would describe Express Chicken which is an Indian take away (not suitable for Jeryy's dining option) at Westwood and Olympic. We ordered a pick up to go a few days ago and when we got home found we did not have mulligatawny soup (they had substituted vegetable), did not have samosas (they had substituted pacoras) did not have chicken curry but had substituted chicken in a tomato sauce. Owner apologised and said his son had done the cooking (back to cooking school junior) and sent us another order of chicken curry this time with a curry sauce. This place is OFF my takeaway list. Back to good solid if not spectacular Jaipur.
