The staff was very friendly and I enjoyed the food even though Indian cuisine is not my favorite. The menu has many choices and I look forward to returning to try something different.

Mayura delivered once again - great food, enormous (almost intimidating!) variety of Southern Indian food. Reasonable prices and excellent value. A family run business that knows how to do it!

We were disappointed. This was reviewed and recommended by Jonathan Gold and we were not fans of what we ordered. The venpongal was like a porridge; we thought it was going to be more like a rice.

Great Indian food. No wonder they are on the LA Times Top 100 restaurants year after year!

MAYURA is always great. Great food and a nice neighborhood atmosphere. The particular style of Indian Cuisine is quite good and impressively prepared. Only problem is sometimes the communication with the wait staff; that bring out the food in a disorderly manner. The food is great and we always go back!!!

Wonderful family-run restaurantserving Indian food from the Kerala region. The mixed vegetable pakora is better than popcorn.

excellent Indian restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was friendly. The food was seasoned well- none of the dishes we had were greasy. We did not have any dishes with meat, so can't speak to that. The Dosa was great- so was the Bhel Puri, Saag Paneer, and awesome cauliflower- they called it Gobi Manchurian.

All the food was very delicious. The only problem is both my friends and myself cannot eat spicy food. When I asked the server if the dishes that we selected were spicy he said no.

They were very good at replacing our dishes for something less spicy but even when the new dish came it still was spicy.

With all that said, I would go back for sure.

I was looking for an Indian restaurant near Culver City. I saw that this was one of Jonathan Golds recommendations. I was surprised by the plain décor and the casual dress of the staff, however I observed the food on some tables and I knew this was going to be good, and it was delicious!

Decided to check it out based on inclusion in Jonathan Gold's 101 list, and was disappointed that the food was only mediocre in my opinion. I know that Indian food encompasses many many regions and styles and tastes, but this was not to my taste. The vegetable korma was watery and coconut-y, which I didn't like. The vegetable biriyani was heavy and dull tasting. On the plus side the lamb vindaloo was quite tasty, as was the bhel puri. The utthapam with onion and chile was just okay. Service was adequate and there was no wait time even on a Friday night.

I really like Mayura. I have eaten their lunch buffet many times and keep coming back for more. I went there for the Diwali (Indian New Year) feast. I was expecting really great. The curry fish was delicious, as was a potato dish redolent with little surprise tastes, and the little milky sweet square for dessert. Their papadums never go out of favor. Otherwise, sadly, I was a bit disappointed.

I always try everything. There were some dishes I had not seen or tried before, they were less to my taste than the aforementioned. The biryani was a bit gummy. The buffet included a beverage and I was delighted with a very good German black lager.
