While I gave the review 4 stars, I feel this restaurant is more closer to 3 and 1/2 stars. i went for the lunch buffet on a Saturday. They had a salad with, I think, romaine lettuce, 2 chutneys, raita, naan, 4 main dishes (selection changes daily), and kheer (Indian rice pudding). On the day I went, the main dishes... More

The family really enjoyed our visit, we were a bit nervous as there were only a few reviews. Also it's a bit out of the way. The restaurant is a bit dated and initially we felt like we had made a mistake in coming. When the food arrived the starters were quite tasty, we had the pakoras, chaat and potato... More

For lunch they have a small buffet with the main entrees changing daily. The food was hot and very tasty. While there we looked at the dinner menu and found it full of delicious sounding meals. We will have to try it for dinner some time. Prices are very reasonable, the service is prompt and the staff is very friendly... More

We are regulars at Chandni and can not say enough good about this place. Chandni is not a fancy overpriced restaurant. It is a family owned and operated down to earth vegetarian haven in Santa Monica that has been serving the neighborhood for over 20 years. Do not come here looking for a fancy night out - come here to... More

We were in LA for two months, and went here 4 times. There is nothing fancy about it, but the food is consistently delicious, the service is impeccable and they are incredibly accommodating! Even people who were not typically excited about Indian food were very happy with their dining experiences here.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
