Business Description
Lal Mirch invites you to come and enjoy the best traditional Indian cuisine, served in an elegant and casual atmosphere. The spices used are imported directly from India to preserve the quality and freshness captured in the flavours, and a comprehensive vegetarian menu is also available. The role of spices and herbs goes beyond great cooking and great taste to be a healthy addition to any meal. You can choose from mild, medium, or hot for levels of spice, and the chef prepares each dish individually to ensure freshness, quality and satisfaction. Conveniently located in Studio City, near Universal Studios, the elegantly appointed dining area is the perfect place to begin with delicious Indian appetisers, like samosa, meat or vegetable turnovers stuffed with ground beef or mixed vegetables.

very good indian food

I went here yesterday. Food is really good..
service is also great..

make sure you go for buffet here, its only $9.95 and there are lot of varieties.
I am vegetarian but my friend has got some non veg options and he was very happy with it.

little problem with parking as they have very few spots but I could get it after 5 min wait.

I will highly recommend this one


Lal Mirch hits the spot

Having lived in L.A. for about a year, I've had a tough time finding a great Indian restaurant. Lal Mirch is now at the top of my list. While it is tucked away (on Ventura) and parking is slightly hazardous in the back lot (READ: tiny lot), the food and service more than makes up for it. We arrived at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. What a perfect time to go. We pretty much had the restaurant to our selves -- full attention of the wait staff -- and excellent, piping hot food. Best yet, there's a dinner for two option (two entrees, soup, rice, and dessert) reasonably priced. The butter chicken and the tikka masala were FANTASTIC! If you are craving Indian food, give this place a try.

Authentic Indian Cuisine, Delightful Service

Went with my mom last week on a Wednesday afternoon. After chatting with the owner for a while, we learned a lot about this establishment and I liked it even more. I'm excited that they are right around the corner from me!

This place is very inconspicuously located. The best thing about Lal Mirch is their food. It is the real deal and they take pride in what they serve here. It is a family business, with pride of ownership. Go for the lunch buffet, or dinner and be sure to have the tandoori chicken.

The staff is pleasant and will know you after your first visit. Ask questions and talk to them about their menu, they are very informative and delight in sharing their culture through their delicious food.

The place can be packed at the height of the lunch or dinner hour, but it is well worth it and the tables turnover quickly so you won't have much of a wait.


Best Indian Food In LA..Period!!!

Located off Ventura blvd. in studio city, First thing you notice is the Decor. Nice place to relax, owner spared no expense compared to "ALL" the others I've been too. More importantly , the FOOD is Outrageous!!! MUST TRY the Chicken Tika Marsala. The sauce is over the top :)

Fresh & Tasty Tradition

Went here for a small casual family gathering of four. First time. Was not diappointed.. Interior was welcoming, tasteful and cozy. Service was very pleasant and helpful. Classic vindaloos, kormas, and tikka masalas were not as heavy and fresher tasting than many other indian places which tend to over-cook sauces. Spice intensity is to your preference. Fried rIce was perfect. Chicken was very tender, though just a few more actual pieces would have been welcome. Although weekday room was full by 7:45pm, it was pleasant and not noisy. Reservation recommended for dinner after 7:00pm.

Horrible hygiene !!!!!! Beware !

I went to this place for the first time with a friend. I know what a good indian food tastes like and what is difference between real indian food and a fake one. Food is all good and tastes good but i was shocked to see a ""hair"" in my daal or lenticles that i ordered...the worst part was when i told the server about it...he started looking around and didn't even appologized fro it nor did the manager. Neither did they serve us anything to replace that nor did they compensated it on the bill. I was charged for the lenticles i ordered and no regrets or appologizes from the management. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go here.

Good Food

Check out the lava dish. If you are interested in spicy food, it is really spicy. I never had a dish like Lava before.

Best Indian Food Ever

After my first visit I was hooked. At present I go at least twice a week. The staff is curtious and the establishment is clean. The only downside is the parking, but you can easily park across the street for a quarter. I highly recomend the Chicken Tikka Masala, although I have not had a bad dish. As a word of caution the ""hot"" (spicy) dishes are extremely spicy.
