A word from Mayura Restaurant
At Mayura, our food is inspired by the authentic home cooking of beautiful, spice-rich Kerala. Food is our passion, prepared for you always with devotion, love, and the finest ingredients. Due to historical diversity and the cultural influences, Kerala cuisines have also contributed unique vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. The main spices used are cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, green and red peppers, cloves, garlic, cumin seeds, coriander, turmeric, and so on. Few fresh herbs are used like curry leaf, and the occasional use of fresh coriander, cilantro and mint. For Kerala fish curry we use only kodampuli (Garcinia Cambogia), as sour sauces are very popular in Kerala.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Everyone was very friendly. The place had the feel of places we visited in South India. The various items on our vege talli plate were ok, but not great. But we had a good time. Lots of Indians eating there."

  • "Staff was very attentive and helpful in selecting dishes."

  • "Unique regional food from southern India is tasty, spicy, and interesting. Despite the enthusiastic friendliness of the owners, the space is unattractive with too bright lighting and no atmosphere--it reminds me of a hospital cafeteria. Fortunately we finished just before a large group came in; it would have been much too noisy for conversation with all those voices bouncing off the walls."

  • "An amazing array of tastes and culinary variety at a very fair price. If you like Indian food this is a great spot,"

  • "A wonderful find, with a dozen dosas on the menu. I will be back."

  • "I found this place because it was mentioned as one of the top 100 restaurants in LA. The food was delicious and the service was so warm and welcoming. It really feels like a family owned place, which it is. It's very reasonably priced. My only complaint it the lighting. It's so bright it feels like a cafeteria. And they even have the really pretty pendant lights that would probably be enough but instead the ceiling can lights blast down on you. It makes neither the food or the guests look very good. Aside from that I would definitely go back again."

  • "I went because of Jonathan Gold's inclusion of this in the top 101 LA restaurants. The food was good, but the server had a very difficult time communicating the menu or making recommendations. I ended up getting huge orders of pancakes and mediocre sauces. I am very familiar with southern Indian cuisine, and this fell far short of my expectations."

  • "Loved that Mayura had different dishes on the buffet- different cauliflower, black eyed peas, different dishes. Went with Indian friends who liked it enough that we went back a week later to find different, equally tasty dishes on buffet. Owner/manager is very nice and friendly."

  • "Truly delicious, authentic and wonderfully spiced Indian food. The service is a little nonchalant, the atmosphere is pleasant but not romantic, but as far as excellent food for a reasonable price? Mayura can't be beat."

  • "Very delicious, well prepared South Indian food. Watch out! Their version of "hot" May be different than yours. Large variety of dishes."

  • "Very nice service, good food with items you don't find in every other restaurants. Will certainly go back."

  • "Don't let the less-than-fabulous strip mall location deter you. The food at Mayura simply rocks and it's not your standard fare, since the food is southern Indian. Start with the onion pakura rava and bhel puri (really different). The dosas are divine. We had the Rava masala dosa, Kerala Sp Appam w/ Vegetable Curry, the Paratha w/ Korma (chicken) and then the Chana Bhatura. Prices are incredibly reasonable and my only complaint is that our waiter was quite odd and rushed us a bit. That said the owner could not have been more gracious. Great place for a big group too."
