I can't believe I haven't tried this place like a year ago I pass by it all the time. Definitely check it out. Lamb curry is spicy good !!
The food is much better than I expected. The location was hard to find at first but worth the effort. Service was slow when I phoned a take out, waited almost 40 minutes after I arrived there. The seating area is small even though I think most people order take out. But again, the quality of the food makes up for a lot of the bad.
This place was really good. Gyro were really good as well as the chicken and veritable curry. I highly recommend this place.
Great food, excellent service. Very reasonable price.
Their chicken tikka masala will transport you to other dimensions: a savory, delicious dimension where you lay on a soft bed made of garlic naan, and bathe in an ocean of curry.

Not a good place to eat lunch if your just buying food for yourself. There's really no combination plates where you can get a bit of different things. And the price for quality of food is a bit high imo. There's better options around this area.
Food is good. Service is better. No bathroom. Too many tables for such a small space. Almost no parking. If you can put up with all this, maybe you can enjoy a super spicy kabob.
Amazing food, chef is very is a very humble person, I ordered paya and naan, followed that with lamb biryani, everything cooked here was fantastic and spices were just right
Worst restaurant ever. Terrible service. The food taste like something that just out of dogs mouth. That's how bad it is. Because the meat is completely raw.
Food was almost passable, but the service and ambiance was terrible. Kabobs were flavourless mush, every naan that came out was different, spices were completely lacking and off. Boxed Shan masala does a better job.

The best place in LA to eat authentic Indian Nepalese food. I must have gone to this restaurant more than 30 times, and I haven't got bored of the food yet. I have tried almost every dish and I love them all. This place is definitely for you if you like spice food. Don't worry, if you don't like spicy food, they can even make the food so that it matches your expectations. (Ex you can ask them to make not at all spicy, mild spicy or very spicy; you can also give the spice level on a rating of 10.) The staff is very welcoming and friendly. They maintain a clean and hygienic environment around too. Definitely recommend this place to everyone!!
I've come back here to Himalayan House many times in the past few years despite moving away from the area and it's still great as ever. Pretty cool to see this spot featured in the new season of "Love" on Netflix. "Best samosas in CA" I'd believe it.
All I can say is I'm so glad we live so close to this place. Last weekend my wife and I ordered delivery from here two nights in a row because it was so amazing (yes, we are that ridiculous, here). Everything was just so yummy.Very spicy and perfect. Super tasty garlic naan, curries and mono dumplings. I highly recommend trying this restaurant!!
Great place to have Middle Eastern cuisine. All of their dishes are good, we typically try different things every time we stop by. I highly recommend!
Solid buffet, friendly service, fantastic chi. Kati was great. Tandoori was a bit dried out by the time we got there. Dal was solid, a bit too watered down IMO. Would like more veggie options, like a saga pander or something. Could have restocked bowls and cups more effectively.

The food is very good, unique, great place to bring people visiting town. That being said, have had several (3) bad experiences now with the staff. On 3 separate occasions our reservation was at least a half hour late, the third time reaching 45 minutes until we just finally left. Look, I get it, I worked in the service industry for a long time, stuff happens, whatever. I understand and am not the type to be rude to service staff. But they never really seem apologetic about it, you know, at least offer us a free appetizer or something. And the final time I went, where we waited for 45 minutes before leaving, was particularly annoying. We arrived at 10, the time of our reservation, and they said just a few minutes. So on and so on and so on, until finally, after 45 minutes, they tell us that we had actually made our reservation for 10:15pm, not 10pm. I said it seemed strange that they were suddenly bringing that up, but even if that is true, its currently 10:45, so where's our table? "Just another minute. Several people who had arrived after us were seated. Maybe they had earlier reservations than us even, who knows. But we ultimately just left and after three bad experiences, probably won't go again.
This was the first place my friends and I went in LA while visiting from Portland. Between the six of us, we had a seriously epic feast. Family style is definitely the way to go because the portions are perfect and trust me, you're gonna wanna order EVERYTHING. And you should. And your server will probably cheer you on because they are awesome and it's just an overall great experience eating here. I'd come back to LA just to eat at Badmaash again, and that's big deal coming from a Portland girl that works in the restaurant industry. Badmaash is THAT good.
Had the fried chicken sammich. Very tasty but I wasn't blown away. It was a bit messy. Would be better with a bun that can stand up to the sauce/pickles. The biggest disappointment was the size. For $14 the sandwich was pretty small and comes with a side of very average, bland, forgettable slaw. Not filling at all. My friend ordered the fish and chips and it was really delicious. But again, the portion size was too small. They give you a TON of fries but cut the fish up into nuggets, and it probably barely adds up to a full piece of fish. I probably won't return just because it's not very filling and I wasn't wowed to the point I felt it was worth the price. But if you happen to be in the neighborhood, give it a try. Maybe other things on their menu might be more filling.
Badmaash brought back some really good good memories. I went there for pure nostalgia. It's a cute little restaurant in DTLA. The food was great. Only thing though.. there service was not very good. They kept forgetting about getting me my thumbs up and despite making a reservation my table well in advance I still had to stand for about 10 minutes. Overall good placr to visit
A really good Indian food. Quality is consistent and service is good. It gets busy so reservations recommended.

They have very good buffet. Service is awesome. Specially chicken tikka masala and chicken tandoori are yummy. Martin Shah is lovable person and receiving of customers is nice. Food is fresh and yummy. I love to hangout in the restaurant and party. In LA, I recommend my friends to try food at Indus.
Indian for the Non-Indian As a "noob" of Indian cuisine I cannot speak to the authenticity of the food, I can only speak to what it tastes like on my palate. I basically stick to the Chicken Masala or the Chicken Curry. Both wonderful dishes on their own and in combination of the garlic naan that they have. There are pros and cons to the chicken curry though. The chicken is cooked thru a little better so the chicken is more tender and moist but if you are going into a client meeting in the afternoon, don't eat it for lunch. Hot and Cool Be aware, the spicy sauce, drum roll freakin' spicy. Go figure right? A spicy sauce that is finally spicy. A little too spicy I may say, but it may be awesome for more manly men than me. The good thing is, there's also a cool minty sauce to cool down your tongue if you accidently add too much spicy sauce!
Not spicy at all, fresh and warm with good taste, I ordered the combo with yellow daal, channa masala and rice, quantity sufficient for one! You have to order naan or salad separately
Can't believe they actually had a Indian spice. Be sure to taste their red chutney, start small 😉
Tandoori platter is totally tasteless. This place is 100% garbage.
