A word from Electric Karma
In the heart of West Hollywood, California, upscale Indian restaurant Electric Karma is popular with both celebrities and neighborhood locals, who praise the authentic Punjabi cuisine prepared with unconventional flair by owner and chef Paramjit Singh. The management and staff are on a first-name basis with regular customers, creating a warm and friendly atmosphere to match the backdrop of Electric Karma’s romantic, open-air courtyard and candle-lit dining room. At night, films of Indian beauty Ashwariya Rai and other Bollywood stars are projected silently above the main dining room to the ambient sounds of world or house music, giving the restaurant a Hollywood hipster air. Electric Karma’s heated courtyard is ideal year-round for both intimate, private gatherings and special business occasions. Appetizers include traditional vegetarian samosas seasoned with tamarind and sweet tomato chutney, pakoras fritters, sambar soup and cheese naan with mango chutney.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was great, and loved our waiter. He was friendly and made me and my girlfriend feel really comfortable. Only real problem I had, was they took a really long time giving us our check and our take out boxes after we asked for them. Minor issue, other than that a great experience!"

  • "I booked this place for 2 esp. because of the reviews of its exciting floor seating. I've been bored of the boring table chair setting and I enjoyed the quaint, cosy, informal, floor setting here(very earthy & colourful; somewhat based on an Indian village courtyard). We were here for an early lunch so it was only us for almost the entire 1 1/2 hrs. duration; we've read it becomes packed at night. The service was decent, but could have been more particular since we had to ask for couple of things, including bowls to eat the curd raita we'd ordered. The owner, who belongs to N. India was very humble and amiable, and our lunch ended with some good old Indian masala chai served personally by him!"

  • "This is a wonderful place for an intimate date, especially if you sit on the floor in the back room. There is something about sitting on the floor that eases the tension and allows you to be more comfortable with your date. The decor was fun and the food was phenomenal. I highly recommend it!"

  • "Worst service ever!!! Had reservations and waited... Then waited for drinks... When the they finally came to take the order,, none of the food come with NAAN's. Really you order Indian food and no rice or NAAN.. Great!! No biggy that's their business mod You guys really need to check that out though. Next food arrives .. Oh the NAANs that we had to order came before the entrees... That's smart guys, let them get cold. Bottom line we saw the waiter once and the other helpers like twice. Decent food and decor , service really needs an over haul!"
