Great fusion Indian restaurant! The music was great and the food even better. Real low key and intimate place.

This place never disappoints. The food is incredible, and it doesn't give off the stuffy vibe that a lot of "hot spots" like this do around LA. Can't wait to go back!

This is probably my favorite Indian food in all of Los Angeles! From classic dishes to modern takes on classics, this place may not be "traditional" but it is certainly authentic to the family that started this restaurant. Love the chicken tikka poutine fries, the butter chicken, the mussels, the daal/lentils and the lamb burger is amazing! One of the best burgers in LA! If you like Indian, but are looking for something a bit modern that still has a traditional touch, you know, that LA feel, Badmaash is your jam!

Came here for my husband‘s birthday. Thor was our server and he was great! We ordered the fried chicken, the short rib, basmati rice, the chickpea dish and rosemary Naan. Everything was EXCELLET! 10/10 will come back. Love the take on modern Indian cuisine as well as the classic Indian dishes.

Love this restaurant for both service and food however the only issue is that seating is SUPER tight so you are practically in the conversation of the diners on either side.

Delicious food! Too many good options on the menu, couldn’t finish all that we ordered between 2 people. I didn’t love that they charge you for sides of chutney/spicy sauce, but it’s LA. Overall tasty food, good service (bussers frequently wiped down our table) and will be back!

Great Indian place with excellent flavors. Pretty good beer list. Wait staff was very friendly. My only complaint is that we had to order rice, it did not automatically come with the vindaloo or tikka masala dishes. That was a rarity for me... I wish the menu was a little wider, but this is an easy place to go to when you want good Indian that isn't too heavy. Good energy!

Best. Food. Ever. The masala fries and the fried chicken are SO GOOD. And the butter chicken! I love it all. My husband and I took his parents over their Christmas visit. They’re from Virginia and don’t eat Indian food ever so they’re were nervous about coming here but loved everything!

Good food, good service. There was a designated parking behind the restaurant but they made me re-park the car elsewhere behind in the streets. Why even say ‘Badmaash designated parking’ if visitors are not allowed to park? Poor.

A unique take on Indian food - a good variety of traditionals plus some interesting dishes. The food is fresh and flavorful. The service was great. The prices are somewhat on the high side but that's expected. Overall, great experience!

I would say this is the best Indian food in LA. So glad they opened another location other than DTLA which was difficult to get to.

The food was good. A really interesting take on modern Indian food. Menu is very chicken heavy. Service was so so - server forgot to enter a number of items we ordered.
Would go again but probably only if I was already in the area.

great Indian food at a very lively location in West Hollywood. All of the food was great but do not miss out on the ice cream sandwiches for dessert! Also loved the samosas

A little more sparsely decorated than the downtown location (no Bollywood posters here), and a little more noisy (all the seating is on one floor, so you can't get the benefit of spreading out everyone over two floors), but still a great location and the same great food.

I moved here 20 years ago from London. This was the best Indian meal I've had in the USA. We had the Butter Chicken and the Mushroom Vindaloo, both were complex and delicious. This place is outstanding! Great staff and service too.
