My Favorite Indian Food in LA

Akbar has for over 10 years been my favorite group of Indian restaurants in the LA area. Their food is always of great quality, extremely flavorful, whether you get it spicy or mild, there is a very good variety, and the atmosphere of the restaurant as well as the service is very nice. There are several Akbar’s in the LA area, one in Marina del Rey, one in Santa Monica, and one in Pasadena, all of which are run by the same owners and overseen by the same head chef, Avinash Kapoor. The three are all different in decor but all have similar menus. This particular review is about the one in Marina del Rey, which I have gone to more than the others, but all are great!

The atmosphere at this Akbar is very nice, sort of medium-lit with warm jazzy paintings and colors, and has a sort of stylish, hip, fun ambience. It isn’t dressy, but it’s quite nice and up to date feeling.

As for the food, everything I have had at all the Akbars has been excellent (although the dishes do tend to vary a bit in style depending on the chef that is preparing it.) The dishes are all prepared with top quality meats and fish, and with whole Indian spices. The Chicken Tikka Masala and Coco Lamb are particularly outstanding. One thing that is very nice at this Akbar is that you can order dishes as a complete meal, including rice, daal, and mixed vegetables. (you can also order a la carte).

Another great thing about Akbar is that they have an excellent wine list, both by the glass and by the bottle.

Chicken Tikka Masala

The best Chicken Tikka Masala around, it’s super savory and flavorful, with just the right amount of richness and spice. The complete dinner is $16, a la carte is $11

Coco Lamb

Very fragrant and super tasty, moderately spicy, lots of whole spices and a touch of coconut make this a great dish

Tandoori Chilean Seabass

A perfectly cooked large piece of tender, moist Chilean Sea Bass, tandoori seasoned and baked, an extraordinarily flavorful seafood dish

While the decor isn't the best the food here is amazing. The staff is great too. I have little ones and the server even held my infant and took him outside when he was fussy since it was slow. We also enjoy being able to watch the chefs…

Best Around

J.C. is great. The food, service, and cuisine are just what you would expect. There are a lot of Indian restaurants and this is one of the best.

Tips
  • At the top of the menu is the "1 to 5 chili meter," a key to the spiciness of each dish. Lamb in a green-peppercorn sauce, for example, earns a high five rating, while the milder lamb and spinach saag is rated 2.
