Joking around, we wondered what fusions we might be lucky to find in LA. One of us asked, "why not Indian and Mexican?" and when we got home we looked for a place and this came up. The food was terrific, the Fried Gobi Cauliflower being a standout appetiser, and the Masala Fries with Cheese being a surprise that improved... More

Had cauliflower, garlic naan, vegetarian papoosas, masala fries. Wine was okay, service very good. Communal dining with fire pits peppered in was cool. Airy enough to not interact with other groups, but possible if you wanted to. People at our table liked their burritos.

We had madras and vindaloo from this restaurant last night as a take away. I was a little worried that the restaurant was taking on too much with two cuisines and was a little confused. We went with the reviews and gave it a shot. Great food. Vindaloo had a really great kick to it. Make sure you order one... More

Great patio ambiance in the middle of LA. Great Indian food with Mexican influences in their burrito and tacos.

I enjoyed the feel of this restaurant. I just wish I had ordered differently. The bread if fresh baked and fantastic. I didn't care much for the curry chicken dishes that we ordered, but I don't like curry anything. I wish I had ordered one of the great looking salads I saw someone else with. I would try it again...

My husband took me here for lunch as a surprise. We were in LA for couple of days before going to Hawaii. Loved this place and the interior. I got a feeling that I was eating in an Indian Dhaba. Food was bland in Indian standards but I asked them to prepare my dishes spicy for my take out order.... More

Really cool mexican/indian fusion food dishes. used to be a true BYOB (no charge), but now they charge you additional if you want to bring in a bottle of something. So...sneak it in!

Used LA Trip Advisor app and found this place. Sounded great and unique. We walked from museums. It was shut down. When we looked it up on the web, we learned it had moved to a new location and that location was also closed. Disappointed in app.

This is a gem of a restaurant when you least expect it. We were here for lunch, but the vibe is built primarily for dinners, when it probably is more lively and beautiful. The outdoor seating in the courtyard is lovely because it is authentic. Speaking of authentic, the food here is very authentic. I tried the tandoori fish quesadilla,... More
