First, the food is very serviceable, well-priced Indian food. No complaints. I took two friends from England who eat Indian food about four times a week, and they were also happy with the food. However, the waiter behaved in a very bizarre way. He was grim. Very grim. We politely asked simple questions about the menu, which he IGNORED until... More

I asked for my meal without any cayenne pepper at all, explaining that I couldn't eat pepper and that I needed the dish completely mild. I'm always really clear about my inability to eat spicy foods, and expect to be told if a dish is pre-prepared and cannot be made without pepper. Between being unable to eat the dish, the... More

I only come to Santa Monica once or twice a year and try a different restaurant each time. This time I stopped in the top rated Indian restaurant in town. I was only there for the lunch buffet so cannot comment on the dinner options. The lunch buffet was very simple. There were three vegetarian dishes and two chicken options.... More

We shared a chicken tikka masala, a vegetable korma, basmati rice and a naan bread. Everything was freshly cooked and delicious! Service was prompt and attentive. The taj majal lager was ice cold and served with cold glasses. Perfection!

Emerging from a strip mall on Pico Blvd, you are amazed to find yourself in a warm, colorful, romantic dining room; this is an Indian restaurant unlike any my wife, I or our two guests had ever encountered. The owners have really gone out of their way to make Tandoor India stand out and stand apart. The waiters are friendly,... More

Don't arrive at rush hour (we were here Sunday evening at 6:45); we didn't get out til 8:30! But the food was as good as most "American" Indian restaurant food--can't hold a candle to the superb eating I've known in Gujurat state--and the value was fine. IMO, the Saag Paneer was the most delicious dish. Obviously, I was not satisfied... More

Wife and I stopped by here after our marathon and ordered the chicken vindaloo and chicken curry special. The food was fine but we ordered a medium spice and it wasn't spicy at all. Otherwise the for was fine and the service was excellent.

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.
