    I don't know if there is a difference or not, but I like the laffa at Joe's Falafel http://joesfalafel.net/ best of any of the "naan family" of breads I've tried in the greater L.A. area. Our local Chutneys http://www.lachutneys.com/ makes a nice "puffy" naan as well.

      Sangak: The prize goes to Naan Hut

      The fresh bread at Shaherzad on Westwood Blvd. is a perennial fave also.

        I like the thing chewy naan at Jasmine Market. I'm not a fan f the soft puffy ones we tend to find in most Indian restaurants. The Jasmine version is similar to the kind I've had in Punjab.

            I agree... I LOVE Naan and the best one I've had was the Chili Naan at Al Noor.


            Trader Joes Naan on a pizza stone is also pretty darn decent... Most often times better than take out...

            Manohar's Delhi Palace in La Puente.

            I don't know Indian food that well, but it was quite tasty to me.

              Tamarind of London in Newport Beach. (Their London venue has a Michelin star...and the NB restaurant is quite good in general and their naan is excellent).

                Tawakal Halal Meat & Deli. Period!
                The owner's recipe is good, his tandoor is hot enough to give that slight char that is missing from most other naan locally and the rest of the Pakistani dishes are excellent. I prefer it to Al-Noor, Al-Watan and Makkah Halal.
