Indian delivery in Los Feliz/Silverlake?

Anyone have any recommendations on decent Indian restaurants that deliver in the Los Feliz/Silverlake area? I'm excepting Electric Lotus...

    I'm not aware that any Indian restaurants in that neighborhood deliver, although it's a good idea. There's not many to choose from besides Tantra, India Sweets and Spices and Paru's. In fact, other than Thai, pizza and some dubious Chinese places, is there anyplace else that delivers? I can't think of anything besides Farfalla.

      Rambutan Thai and Michelangelo deliver in Silverlake. I hear that Gingergrass will soon as well.

      Catts and Doggs will deliver pet food...

        I'll have the tuna kibble to start, followed by an aged Milkbone.

      There's also that new place, Prasadam?, on Sunset. I always feel plagued by guilt if I get delivery (too lazy to pick up??!!) so I have no insight on that service, but for the record I really like Tantra's food (rogan josh!), and since the service sucks, takeout/delivery (if they do it) is getting the best of it. On the other hand, India S&S is great food with better value (since they're not trying to sell a scene with the food), but I doubt they'd deliver.

        I think getting India Sweets and Spices to deliver could be a new sitcom idea.
        Is Prasadam Indian food? Is it ever open? I've walked by several times and it's always been closed, and it looks more like an elixir bar/coffee house than an Indian restaurant.

          >Is Prasadam Indian food?<

          Prasadam is the Sanskrit word for food offering to the deity that is "blessed". So most likely, it is Indian in origin.

            . . .and "Zen", from the Sanscrit "dhayana", means to meditate, but they don't seem to be doin' much o' that
            on Hyperion at the restaurant/bar by that name (as a Buddhist, I always wanted to open a restaurant, or a decor store, called, say, "Protestantism", but not enough to actually do it)

            I think the inquiry was not intended as "Is it INDIAN food?" but, instead, "Is it Indian FOOD?"

        Electric Lotus is passable. But they do hit you up for a $3 delivery charge, which always bothers me. I always tip the driver, so it bugs me to have to pay a service fee on top of that.

          The delivery person is mostly likely getting at least half of that fee. Ask them next time. And then add whatever you want to make it a decent tip.

            Agra Cafe is an Indian restaurant at the corner of Sunset/Fountain is really good (and cheap). Never busy, unfortunately, so I don't know how long it'll be around. But they deliver in Silver Lake/Los Feliz.

              Makkah Halal Tandoori on Vermont delivers. We had it last night. Not that great, but that's just my opinion. Some other people really like it. Do a search on it and you'll find my posting.
