Cold food, hot patrons

My friend and I dined at Dhaba on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was only about 75% full, but we were stuck right by the kitchen. Every time the front door opened I got a blast of cold air.\r \r The decor was pleasant and the other patrons were exceedingly attractive (it's a place where pretty people eat).\r \r The service and food, however, were beyond disappointing. Our sever took about 8-10 minutes to come... view more

wonderful indiana food!

this is a fabulous restaurant. It is clean and lovely, with a beautiful patio. Located on the north end of Main Street, this place has apparently been around for over 30 years. Tasty dishes, real homemade feel to them.

At Least It Stayed Down

I feel I know good Indian food. I've been to an Indian wedding and have eaten at many restaurants. I can sum up the whole meal by calling it mediocre. I was very hungry when we got there, and I wasn't hungry at the end--this is the sole benefit that I got out of eating there. The food was lacking in flavor--very bland. I noticed there was no salt on the table, and usually this is not something I go looking for. Their... view more

great indian

I was with a wanna be indian foodie... She LOVED this place. I have never been crazy about indian food- and I loved it. I have been back several times and always have the best service. It is cozy and warm- looks like a little house. There is a reasom this place has been around since the 70's!! Try it. :)

Poor delivery, cold food

I ordered from Dhaba for the first time, for delivery, and I am very disapointed. The food quality was OK, but it took twice as long to get my food because ""the delivery guy got lost."" I won't be ordering again from Dhaba.

Fake Low-Quality Indian Food

If you are looking for a truly undistinguished and mediocre Indian dining experience head on down. Most Indian restaurants at least get the bread right -- these guys will serve you 15 cent packaged grocery store tortillas and try to pass them off as ""chapatis"" -- SHAME ON YOU Mr. Dhaba!!!! To add insult to injury, the bread was served stone cold!!! I heard a woman from London at another table, telling the waiter ... view more

Still charming

After reading some of the other reviews I wasn't sure what to expect, but overall I was pleasantly surprised. I had been to Dhaba many years ago and the first thing I noticed is that they must have spruced up the place. It still has its old charm and relaxing ambience, but it seems much nicer than I remember. The food was great: generally light and tasty compared to other Indian places that can leave me feeling he... view more

Unusual in a good way

This is one of my childrens favorite restaurants and they often ask to be taken here. I live in Hollywood and it's a bit out of the way but when spending the day at the Santa Monica Beach or at the pier, it's a great way to end the day.

Horrible Indian Food

This is the worst Indian food I have ever eaten. The naan did not taste fresh. I agree with the previous reviewer about the Saag Paneer. I could not believe the bright green color and upon eating, it was tasteless. On top of all of this, it was the most expensive Indian food I have eaten. Why pay so much for tasteless food? This restaurant was a huge dissapointment.

Horrible with a Capital H!

I would consider myself a good critic of Indian food. Having grown up in India I have eaten the best Indian food and the worst. This food was the worst. The Nahns were not made fresh, in house. The Saag Paneer was made with Mint and what looked like canned radioactive spinach. The Dahl was so watery that I think we counted a total of Ten Beans in it. And it all tasted only of salt. The meal included, Two Plain Nahn, ... view more
