A reluctant thumbs up for these guys. Ambiance is quite lovely. I've had mixed experiences with the food and service. Pizzas have been most consistently good. Samosas are giant. I didn't care for the "bunny chow" which was just kind of strange.
Unethical, unprofessional, and mediocre to boot – Baba Ji, the owner, does not pay his employees. He owes several current and ex-employees over ten thousand dollars in unpaid wages. If you visit the restaurant repeatedly, you will notice the staff is constantly changing. Go here if you like your Indian food with a side of slave labor.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Located in a nondescript Silver Lake strip mall, this offshoot of the Indian-Mexican street food outpost adjacent to the El Rey Theatre is larger and less takeout-centric than the original. Inside, dramatic orange-red walls play off polished cement floors and dark wood tables; the serene courtyard patio out back offers a completely different vibe, and feels miles away from busy Sunset Boulevard. On the menu, Indian-Mexican street food translates to hybrids like fries served with masala and tandoori burritos. The latter are stuffed with chicken, tofu, fish or shrimp, along with the flavor-punch combination of cilantro and chutney mixed in with rice and lettuce. It's a lot to process, but it works--down to the selection of salsas and sauces on the side. The tandoori tacos feature a similar mix, or you can opt for a little less variety in more straightforward quesadillas. For traditionalists, there's a good selection of plump samosas, curry dishes and masala entrees, including ample vegan options. More than a simple side, naan bread is used creatively in everything from pizzas to the tasty naanwich (curiously no longer on the menu, but still ordered frequently by those in the know). On weekends, breakfast includes samosas stuffed with scrambled eggs, cilantro and serrano chilis, masala omelets and more.
