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.

Great service even better food. My partner was pleased. They told me they never had Indian food before and were surprisingly pleased.

We’ll try to come back

Love this place, I take everyone who visits here! Food is always so good, warm and comforting, service is fast and the ambience and Indian music/movie playing adds a little something

My husband enjoyed his dish, but my tandoori platter was awful. The waiter dropped several dishes when clearing our table and my husband had food all over a new pair of pants when we got home. Fortunately the owner did not charge us for my meal, which was inedible. Not a pleasant experience.

Very friendly staff but they were disorganized. Votive candles were all on our table vs placed on each individual table. Food did not come out in a smooth transition. They didn't check on us to refill beverages. From what I observed, tthers seated around us had the same experience. Having poor service didn't make any sense as they had plenty of staff walking around. I suggest they get a strong manager to run the place - perhaps a woman. Not a female staff in the place.
