Friday dinner, not too busy, nice greeting, seating and immediate drinks (BYOB no corkage fee, liquor store next door also sells Kingfisher). Gratis papadum perfectly made. Excellent Indian salad with onion, cucumber, carrots and tomato. Spiciness will be to order. I loved the chicken boonah medium hot. Rice was just the right amount of moisture. Garlic naan, yum! Nothing was... More

I ordered the coconut curry with chicken. I got the dinner special for $15.95, with two sides, rice, and a salad. It was so much food! I was glad to have it because I stuffed my face. This place is a new favorite! You have to try it.

We were please with how hospitable the wait staff was. The lunch specials were quite good. Taste, quality, quantity exceeded our expectation. I ordered chicken korma.... More

This place is a very solid, no frills Indian restaurant. We went with three other people after attending a movie at the Indian Film Festival down the street a few weeks ago (~2pm). The place wasn't crowded, as they were an hour away from closing for a few hours before their dinner shift. Service was very friendly and relatively quick.... More

If you're from the UK and want a papadom you recognise, don't order any here. You get the tasteless, herb variety here. Food was below average to average but portions are pretty big.

We went there around 2.30 PM. We had few vegetarian dishes along with soup and rice. Vegetable soup was very thin. We had Indian lussy. But it tasted like butter milk. We had Alu mutter and dal fry. Both tasted very good. The soup tasting like South Indian rasam and lussy tasting like butter milk, the food combination was equivalent... More

I love Crown of India! I enjoy Crown of India over other Indian restaurants and even over other favorites like Sushi and Pizza. This will be one of the best restaurants you ever eat at.

I wasn't expecting much when I walked in, based on the plaza it's located in, but the ambiance was nice: Indian music, laughter, delightful smells. The food was flavorful. Although it felt overpriced, the amount given was enough for that night's dinner and the next day's lunch.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
