Badmaash Downtown LA
What Insiders Are Saying
In a city without much in the way of unique Indian food, Badmaash is breaking the mold.
Perfect mellow, yet still special birthday. Food & service delightful.
Came in for dinner with friends and balanced vegetarian and meat dishes. Everything was incredibly delicious! In particular the pork curry and the poutine were our favorites. Only complaint is that it’s a bit overpriced. The naan and rice aren’t included and are too expensive for the amount they give you.
Food was bland. The Goan pork curry was overly sweet. Had to add heat to everything to get any flavor. Would give it one more try but I'd order different items. We had ordered the butter chicken and the beef short ribs as well.
The fish pakoras were really good though.
First time eating there it was nice!! Will come again.
Second time here. We had a late reservation but the service was excellent!
The mod Indian food is creative and fresh, with traditional roots and contemporary interpretations, with healthy portions and rich, bursting flavors. The staff were friendly and generous. They welcomed us with warmth, wit, and joy. It's a great place.
called few times before I came in. Everyone is friendly.
Consistently delicious, with a vibrant atmosphere and outstanding, friendly service.
Awesome place! Glad I was able to try it out after 4 years of wanting to. Keep up the great work and I can’t wait to come back. They staff was amazing also.
Food was the bomb. Barely sampled the menu. Need to go back.
Pork belly and Butter Chicken was outstanding.
The food was really awesome. Definitely try the poutine.
Food was good but nothing I found incredible. I got the tikka masala and it was waaaay too spicy. I had to ask for the rooti to cool it down and wished I had been warned. The ambience was great and really good service but not amazing overall. I would go back to try some of the more interesting fusion options though!
Staff was amazing. They even offered us free dessert for it being our first time there :)
Loved our time at Badmaash. The service was excellent, everyone was nice, fun and made great menu suggestions. The place filled up right at 5PM when they re-opened for dinner on a Sunday, so I'm really glad we made a reservation. The food was delicious and great value for the price. I will definitely be returning again.
Best Indian food in LA! Delicious samosas, chicken tikka masala, naan and chai tea. Interesting and non-traditional items too.
No, not going to share
The food was so good!! I will definitely come back! ! ! !
Great indian food. fun vibe with the movies playing on wall. a little noisy. welcome to LA baby~
I love the convivial atmosphere and the great tasting foods, but the noise level is difficult to withstand.
Always a solid place for Indian food with a lot of different menu options! I received less pita than usually given which was a bit of a bummer, but the waiter was very attentive and the food was good! Will be back.
Okay food, service and ambiance was ok, After eating food my wife got acid reflux and couldn’t sleep in night
Lots of local Indians who know good food. We enjoyed the chicken tilka, naan, the rice and the paneer
Great food and service, i would just have preferred if they lowered the music, and maybe choose a more relaxing playlist. But overall everything was great!
As usual the food and service was phenomenal. Everyone here is always the nicest and most accommodating. Everything we ordered was the best. Great experience for our group.
It was my Birthday n my husband planned a lunch date as it’s my favorite place to eat in the city.
Food was good when it finally came. Our waitress was nice and friendly. They were out of a lot of items on the menu so we had to change our orders for our meals and drinks. Food portions are very small and I believe they overcharge. I wont be going back.
Food and service were outstanding. I would recommend going with a small group so you can try multiple dishes. The lamb champeey and chicken marsala were great.
Delicious food. Lots of non-meat options. Portions are so so. Ambience is cool casual. We liked our upstairs corner table at the DTLA location. Would def go again.
Loved!! Amazing service, nice people, cool vibes.
Outstanding food and service. The price was right and the service amazing!
We are frequent visitors of badmaash / both their Fairfax and their downtown location. On this trip the service was particularly bad and the food was ok. Not as strong as a recommend to friends as we have in the past. The waiter seemed disinterested
Great location for cool downtown eating experience and tasty food!
Food tasted delicious and ambiance was perfect for a date.
Always fabulous best Indian food I have ever eaten service is fast and friendly can’t wait to go again
I got there and was told the kitchen was closed even though I called ahead of time
Fantastic food!! But a tad pricey.
Amaxing experience, delicious food and Shannon was the best.......
One of my favorite restaurants in DTLA! Gotta bring everyone here, amazing service, food is delicious and unlike anything you’ve ever had before. I highly recommend the samosas, saag paneer, chili cheese naan, chicken tikka poutine, spiced lamb burger, (secret menu) chicken sandwich, mango spiced pork belly, the chickpea puffs (app) and any of the desserts.
The food is absolutely delicious. Very cool vibe, well decorated.
