Love the food, cozy and intimate atmosphere – In the past, I usually went with the delivery service to my house in Hollywood..( menu that I took from friend cause the food sounded tasty). I never made an attempt to pay a restaurant visit until today. Yesterday I ordered delivery service from Electric Karma and today I finally made the effort to visit the place. As I first walked in, I right away loved the decor. I sat in a cozy booth and from my view I can see the outside patio and I thought the next time I would love to bring friends with me to enjoy the really cute and cozy outside setting. The pricing is great. The service was fabulous. The waiters were nice. I believe I was also approached by the owner and asked me if I needed anything else done to my food and if it was ok. It was more than ok. It was excellent. They made me feel comfortable, welcomed, and most of all happy. I will try to make more attempts to come here more often although I still appreciate the delivery service. =)
Free refill of best chai & complimentary appetizer – Excellent food and service. Free refill of best indian chai, then complimentary appetizer, and finish with free dessert. What a deal. Super great service. My friend and I did not finish our complimentary appetizer so that we could save room for the entree and desserts. The waiter asked whether we were not happy with it. Great proactive seeking of customer feedback! Much better service than most expensive restaurants. Very attentive waiters ensured constantly whether we wanted to refill our chai. Great price and delicious tastes. Very comprehensive menus. beautiful atmosphere. Servers are all polite, friendly, attentive, and helpful. More than highly recommended.
FOOD & DECOR – I had my second dining experience at Electric Karma this past weekend. Having discovered this place earlier this year, I was looking forward to a return visit. This place has definitely found its groove and is a bright colorful addition to the area. The menu is inventive and a welcome departure from the ordinary. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area [near the beverly center. I certainly plan to return again.
good for birthdays – a group of 25 had a surprise bithday party last weekend and it was absolutely fantastic! they reserved a private space for us in the open air back patio, which was beautifully decorated. the service was awesome and the food just as wonderful. the waiters were extremely attentive and everyone was happy!
open-air patio – Recently my husband took me to electric karma and it was fantastic! It was our anniversary and a rare time where we could enjoy dinner without the kids. They treated us like royalty. The food was great and we were even given a wonderful tour of the place when we asked if they had any space for private parties. they have a back patio with pillows on the floor, its so lovely!
beautiful ambience and good sevice – This place is wonderful, from the twinkling candles to the delicious food, this place is fantastic. We wanted a romantic evening and this is exactly what electric karma provided. Excellent service in a wonderful atmostphere!
romatic restaurant – My boyfriend took me to electric karma last night for my birthday. I'm very picky with restaurants, but this one was absolutely wonderful! The service was incredible! Everyone from the car valet to the gentleman that opened the door for us to the waiters to, our main waiter were extremely courteous, friendly and punctual. We had fresh samosa for an appetizer, chicken nirvana and fish tikka with great wine for an entree, and an amazing warm gulab jamun for dessert. Everything was extremely tasty! And the ambience of the restaurant is so romantic, the tables are well-spaced for more privacy in the back patio, candles and flowers everywhere (we sat in the back patio on pillows), and great buddha-bar style music in the background. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!
food tastes like in india! – this place is a great escape from hectic l.a. life. the staff welcomes you in and treats you like a maharaja. since one year i go to this restaurant on the regular basis and the food is superb every time. you have to try nirvana chicken, chicken kebab, fish tikka and tandoori shrimp salad.
the outside patio is very relaxing and beautiful
Why Americanize ethnic food – Americanized Indian Food....I dont like the bland affair. is there anybody Indian in the kitchen, I doubt it. The flavors, the presentation, the aromas are more tex mex than Indian. Trust me, I know Indian food after living in London for a few years. This place is a money minter in the disguise of Indian restaurant.
WORST SERVICE AND INDIAN FOOD IN L.A – When I saw that this restaurant had five stars and such low prices, I thought "Wow, this must be one of those super cool holes in the wall that you only stumble upon by accident or have to hear about through your friends," but I was wrong. The food was sub average at best (I could get the same Samosa and Pakoras at any higher end any indianmarket for much less money) and the service was absolutely abysmal. It was extremely frustrating gaining the attention of the servers, they were just hanging aroud the Bar. Some of am playing around the computer. though I frequently called for them making pleading eye gestures, waving, even calling out to them directly, all to no avail. Even as the servers passed by me and made eye contact, they kept moving on. We had to ask for our bill three times and only got it after complaining that we had asked so many times and had been waiting up to half an hour. I will definitely never come here again.
