I see the reviews on Tripadvisor and they are all great. So, I end up going to this restaurant. Was I disappointed? We had Chicken Makhani, Baingan Bhartha, and Dal Tadka for the entrees. There was no spice in any of the dishes. So much so that I had to ask for some hot sauce which was equally bad. Oh,... More

I had dinner with me and my significant other here. The place doesnt looks special from outside but inside everything looks new and, most importantly, very clean and taken care of. We were served very quickly by the waiter, who never missed filling our glasses of water, and the owner often checked in to ask if everything was ok (... More

Recommended by our Bangladeshi Uber driver, when good food cannot be found in Los Angeles. He noted that the food at Star of India is freshly cooked, and that proved true even on a slow day. Had chana masala, aloo saag and roti. All super fresh. Many vegetarian options.

Smetime a garlic or onion nan. This is great also for take out or delivery because you can feed 5-7 people with 4 dishes. The rice with... More

My partner and I tried here last night on our visit to LA from the UK. There was only one couple in the restaurant so we were a bit worried. I ordered a chicken bhuna which is normally mild to medium but this blew my head off! My partner ordered a chicken tikka which was lovely. The garlic naan was... More

We were visiting Los Angeles and a search on our Navigation system led us to this place. What luck ! It turned out to be one of the best Indian meals I had had in a long time. It is a decent sized restaurant, not too large but not very small either (it probably has seating for about 40 -... More

This restaurant has become one of our classics. It is located on a lively section of Melrose. Parking nearby on a saturday night is hard, so we usually park on La Brea, a couple of blocks south of Melrose, a short walk away. The restaurant is medium size, maybe 12 tables, with simple and pleasant decor. It tends to be... More

Had 3 different Shrimp dishes. They all had a distinct, great taste and totally rocked!! In fact this is the best Indian food I've ever had in the US.

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.
