YUM!! – Let me tell you something, I'm telling everyone about this place, which is now called Tanzore. I wish I lived closer, I'd be here all the time. The service is impeccable - friendly and timely. The food and desserts are perfectly seasoned and presented. Try the Samososa, they are quite tasty. I had a Charbay Green Tea Mojito - super refreshing. The colors of the restaurant are rich and inviting. And if you are waiting for friends you can watch a fashion show. Get in now before you won't be able to, this is a true treasure. I will visit Tanzore and their lovely staff everytime I'm in LA!!
Best Indian in LA, hands down. – I just have to say, this place is great! It is the gold standard, in Los Angeles, as far as I'm concerned, when it comes to Indian cuisine. It's all about authenticity here, from the menu, to the food itself. I was here for a banquet party the other night, and I was really impressed. The food was so fresh, and the service was great too. I can't imagine going anywhere else for great, authentic Indian food in LA.
Great authentic flavors, friendly, and some surprises – A friend recommended dinner at Gaylord since it had been years since he had been there. We were craving authentic Indian food, and Gaylord definitely delivered with a new spin. The four of us were warmly received and seated in their banquet room which was a bit odd-- we figured out why when Sam, the maitre d' explained the construction of the new restaurant next door, Tanzore. Our friendly server, Devin, said they'd be opening in a few weeks-- actually the menu had the new Tanzore dishes, not really fusion but Indian specialties I hadn't seen at other Indian restaurants: chatpate aloo, hariyali murgh, a bright herb-marinated chicken appetizer, really good! (Went surprisingly well with my chardonnay.) They also had the classics: tandoori dishes, dal makhani, different naan and flatbreads.
The naan and pranthra arrived very warm, straight out of the tandoor oven. We had ordered some starters including some deliciously spiced seekh kebabs, not too spicy but intensely flavored. We were especially raving over the kabuli naan which has a sort of sweet rose and nut filling, a cooling foil for the roasted meats and their spices. My friend has been eating curry dishes and vindaloo for years so he ordered the lamb which had authentic kick, perfect for more yogurt raitha and kabuli to tame the chilies. The presentation was stylish, much more modern than traditional Indian dishes. Fish? Amazingly moist sea bass even though it was roasted in the tandoor, giving it a slightly crisp crust. All the entrees were fantastic.
We went for some classic desserts (gulab jamun, a tapioca pudding with basil syrup which was rather plain) while I tried the chocolate lava cake with cardamom. Dark, melty, warm, spiced, the chefs know their chocolate! If this is a sample of what's to come at Tanzore, we're definitely coming back for more-- overall a great dinner with unique surprises & flavors.
I Was Reborn – I have been reborn! Wow! Went to Gaylord after not having had Indian food for years and fell in love again.
It was kind of hard to find at first, housed in a big black building on Restaurant Row, but then I saw a large lit banner and we were in. Inexpensive self parking was available and we walked right in and were greeted by a very gracious Indian gentleman, Sam. At first I was skeptical because the room was a little sparse although busy. Then once the server came by with a delicious glass of complimentary Sancerre from Sam our questions were answered. Aparently the original Gaylord India was a well known haven for both countrymen from India and L.A. Foodies alike, but alas the owner of 15 years, along with his designer-daughter , is finally seeing his dream fine dining restaurant become reality in the form of a brand new dining room they call, "Tanzore" due to open in only a couple of weeks. Sam very pleasantly offered me a tour of the construction site which is near completion with beautiful marble and rich wood walls, stained concrete floors, a glass enclosed 2000 bottle wine cellar and a lounge where one entire wall will be a video screen showing fashion, art and travel montages. Even though there was no furniture yet you could tell alot of money had been spent in design and materials...But the food was the show stopper. They are previewing the new menu at a much reduced price and everything I had was delicious, extremely flavourful...lots of spice (hot and mild) and ample portions. My favorites ,the Machli Raitan (seared tuna) with an avocado raita, crab tiki (crabcakes) with mustard and curry (spicy) and lamb seekh kebab (authentic as I've ever had) . We shared entrees including black cod extremely tender with lime leaves and a cashew nut salad, Saag paneer, for my girlfriend and Tandoori Lamb Chops for me...Can't get enough Indian Lamb I always say... I don't have enough space to mention the dessert but they were awesome. Looking forward to Tanzore!
Biggest WASTE of money and time....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – This is by far the worst dining establishment I have been to in my life. I have always been curious as to what the big fuss was over a "posh" Indian restaurant and could not have been more disappointed. First of all, when you pull up to valet there was nobody there I had to wait about ten minutes outside before someone came to get the car. Then we walked in and weren't greeted, there was no ambiance to the place at all, it was like a big clubhouse with dining tables. We weren't even given menus until at least fifteen minutes after being seated. They charged for everything, such as the riata (yogurt side item) and all chutneys that go with the dishes. At most Indian food places these items are complimentary. The food had no authenticity to it. The servings were small and paltry at best. For instance, the samosa appetizer I ordered was the same little frozen samosas you get at Indian grocery stores! Can you believe it. The food was awful, there was no service, This was just a Beverly Hills shi-shi foo-foo dump. We spent over
$140 and got an appetizer and rice and chicken and one naan. This place is literally for suckers. DO NOT GO THERE! pathetic excuse for a restaurant.
Nice place, good food, great ambience, awesome service – This is a nice place. they served pretty good food during my visit. A little bit spicy but I liked it. The Service is awesome. I loved the ambience.
I think this is a great restaurant to go to. I suggest make reservations before you go.
BEST FOOD IN THE COUNTRY. – We were in LA on a vacation. I am from Northern India and live in NY. We tried the new/improved menu. I haven't tasted anything like it. Believe me I have been to Indian restaurants all over the world. Kesari Chicken and Napolean Paneer were simply amazing.
No thank you!!! – I love Indian food!!! Unfortunately, I didn't love Gaylord. I chose this place after hearing so much about it...perhaps it's just the location that makes people rave. The Bombay Chat was pretty much chopped potatoes and onions with what was, I swear, Wheat Thins; it was dry by the way...no chutney or yogurt. I also ordered the Channa Masala, my standard which I've often eaten least 3 times a week in various parts of the world. That said, Gaylord's version was a poor excuse. A heavy buttery flavor (perhaps ghee), it came in a brown sauce heavily seasoned with onions (not visually appealing AT ALL!) and a nice touch of tumeric. The only saving factor of my Gaylord meal was the Naan; it was hot, light, and moist. So if you're in the mood for good Naan, Gaylord's got it!
SPECTACULAR Indian Food – Gaylord is a very special restaurant, with food that transcends and inspires! This is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles, and be assured I have tried them all! I come from an Indian family and regularly take my relatives here for authentic, sophisticated, wonderful food. Vegetarians try the Paneer Makhani (tell the waiter Nicky to make it just right for you), bombay chat, aloo golbi, and saag paneer. Meat eaters try the tandoori fish which is so divine you'll be transported beyond the gates of heaven!! For dessert, try the kulfi which is a luxurious indian ice cream drizzled with rose water and pistachios. The restaurant owners was really nice people and will accomidate any requests. Gaylord will uplift you! This is real, authentic Indian food.
Best Indian food in Southern CA! – I have dined here before many times. Yes, the place is a bit pricy, but stop whining. You are paying for the quality of food and taste..those of you that have written negative reviews belong to or own other Indian Restaurants in the area. I find their reviews offensive. This restaurant is great if you want great Indian food. I have tried other Indian restaurant, but when it comes to flavor and quality, this is the best one!
