We had lunch on a weekend and I was impressed by the value for a nice quality and quantity. I had Chicken Curry which included salad with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, a fair amount of tasty chicken in a spicy sauce, basmati rice, lentils, and very delicious flaky naan. My companion had Vegetable Curry which had the same accompanying side... More

I have eaten in many socal Indian restaurants but this one was as a bit on the disappointing side. The ambience was nice, cozy, romantic, the kind you like to find in Old Pasadena. The staff was also very prompt and very friendly. It was clean. But the food was just so so. The samosas were fine, but I have... More

I have been there a couple of times and tried some authentic Indian food. The restaurant is located in old town Pasadena and is very easily accessible. The food is tasty, albeit the quantity appears to be on the lesser side. However the Indian buffet option was not available, which was a little of a let down. The Tandoori butter... More

We went here with friends. My chicken was tough. I should have returned it. I won't be going back here again! We also had to wave down the waiter. Terrible.

Went with a group from work. They brought out bread to start with a dipping sauce that was very tasty. I had the Chicken Biriyni which was very good and was a large portion. I was starved when I arrived and very full when I left. The food was very good and the prices where extremely cheap considering portion sizes.... More

Tandoori chicken undercooked. Sugar added to the raita. Gag! But my friends love it. They had different dishes

We wanted Indian food - we'd been to two other highly rated restaurants in this area and were disappointed - food OK not great despite good reviews. All India was empty when we arrived (not a good sign) but very clean and smelled incredibly good so we decided to stay.We were not disappointed. The food was very good. We got... More

It is a pretty well known fact by my co-workers who are from India that this is the most authentic and delicious Indian food in Pasadena. I come here about once a month. They have lots of great choices for Vegans like me.

I've only had Indian food a couple times, not my first choice when deciding where to eat. But we were with some Indian friends and they wanted to take us to this place since it was one of their favorite Indian restaurants. I left the ordering up to my friend, for the four of us, he ordered quite a bit... More
