Worth the drive from LA literally just to eat here?
My favorite things are the samosa chaat, the shai mattar paneer, and the mixed stuffed parathas but there isn’t any possible way to get anything less than a great meal here, whatever you order. Menu is limited, not everything available at any given time but trust me, it’s the best.
My former boss is Punjabi, I told her about this place. She was a little skeptical because I’m white she asked “do you really know Indian food?” I said well enough that you should trust me on this one. Took her a couple weeks to trust me but when she went, she said it was the best Indian food she’s had outside of India (and she actually lived in LA and commuted, so she’d eaten all over LA too.)
I lived in LA for a long time. I know truly great Indian food isn’t commonplace anywhere. I can safely recommend this place. If any of you ever find yourselves in Bakersfield, this is the must-go place. Like I said, it’s even worth going if you have the time and want to go on a food pilgrimage. I Felt the duty to put this on you Angelenos’ radar.
