When it comes to Indian food, we’re big fans. We love it for lazy takeout, a great lunch buffet, or a dinner full of samosas. In LA there are a lot of great restaurants. If you don’t want to make the trek to Artesia’s Little India, you’ll find a lot of great eats in Culver City. We couldn’t pick just one favorite Indian restaurant in Los Angeles downtown Culver City, so here are a few to choose from.


Looking for our Our Favorite Indian Restaurant in Los Angeles Downtown Culver City? Head to Mayura

Perhaps the most popular Indian restaurant in downtown Culver City is Mayura. Like so many great LA restaurants it’s hidden in a strip mall. The food is regionally specific to Kerala, South India. It’s so good that LA Times food editor Jonathan Gold put Mayura on his list of the 101 Best Restaurants in LA. Mayura has a separate vegetarian kitchen so your vegetarian friend’s needs and your chicken tikka masala cravings can both be satisfied. They’re not one to be humble; Mayura’s website features a section titled “Why Mayura is the best Indian restaurant in Culver City”.

Tara’s Himalayan Cuisine

Don't forget the Momos when getting Our Favorite Indian Restaurant in Los Angeles Downtown Culver City

Folks from Northern India love Tara’s Himalayan Cuisine, which serves food a little different than our other favorite spots. Tara’s serves Himalayan cuisine from Nepal and Tibet and their mountain grown herbs and spices come directly from Nepal.  Tara, the owner, is a classically trained dancer who wanted to share her love of Nepali culture. The momos (dumplings) are a must as are the curries.
