Is there an Indian restaurant in LA more romantic than Electric Karma? Probably not. The dreamy West Hollywood eatery serves Punjabi cuisine in a setting that oozes seduction, with flickering candles, tassled garden umbrellas and lanterns that set the mood. At night, Bollywood films are projected above the main dining room as world music plays softly in the background. Start with a few appetizers that include traditional vegetarian samosas seasoned with tamarind and sweet tomato chutney, sambar soup and cheese naan with mango chutney, followed up by palak paneer with tofu, Chicken Frankie (a sort-of Indian burrito) and masala dosa.

Well it's a standard Indian restaurant; nothing special. The food was decent, although I will admit that I was not very adventurous but they make a decent sweet Lassi and that's not always the case. I will visit again.


This is one of the best Indian food restaurants in the city! They offer a wide variety of dishes which are very authentic. The decor is also really cute in there and they have a great outdoor seating area!
