This place is hidden gem until my office mates invited me for indian buffet last month. So now we keep coming back to this place every two weeks. I am crazy about the tandori chicken, its just so well done that it is my favorite. Parking maybe hard but I always find a spot as we usually go before noon.... More

I love Gill's! I eat here just about every week and the food is consistently delicious. They also have an inexpensive lunch buffet with high quality of food. The service is good too. It is in the back of an older hotel but always worth it. They also deliver!

Loved the food - great taste and quality. Servings were huge. Staff were friendly. The ambience is very casual, come for the food more than anything else. Some of the best indian food I've had anywhere!

The restaurant located inside Stillwell hotel tucked inside the hotel lobby, was within walking distance from Milner hotel in Flower Street where we were staying. We ate tasty chicken pakora with drinks as starters and followed it up with delicious platter of... More

I have eaten in Indian restaurants in all major US cities and in large and small towns across India, and love every meal. I live in a small town and our local Indian restaurant is all right, I guess - my kids grew up on it and think of it as comfort food - but I've been exposed to great... More

Usually I have my food delivered because i live quite near to this place. One of the best biryanis i have had in los angeles. I was craving for some spicy biryani - i asked them to make it super spicy and boy did they deliver. I was wowed how spicy it was just loved it.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
