I have eaten there and had food delivered. The menu is quite vast, and covers all of the Indian flavors and dishes. I like that everything does not taste the same. Their meats are very tender. The restaurant owner is very friendly and welcoming.

This restaurant needs a new Tandoor chef and an updated menu! Very over cooked and tasteless tandoori food. Disappointing, as they were recommended by my hotel. They even demanded on taking away the hot sizzling plate for the tandoori, as they needed it for other customers! Incredible! It feels like they are living off of their history? I visit many...

Quaint place. Food, service and owner were delightful. We had one of our children with us - so they offered to make everything non-spicy. The lamb was sooooo tender. We will be back.

My husband, daughter and I had lunch here on December 30th and it was fantastic! A woman working in a nearby shop recommended it. The service was good and the food was amazing! Our daughter claims it's her favorite Indian restaurant now. The lunch specials were large and the prices were great.

This restaurant has a good rating on GrubHub, so I ordered some food. After two hours of not getting my Food, I called them. The conclusion was of the dude working there: "I am stupid, this is not our fault, how could you get it wrong". As in, you are the most stupid client ever. The most disrespecting restaurant I...

Everything is excellent. My cousins are from Kerala so I grew up eating Indian cuisine and without a doubt Gangdin has always been at the top.

Outstanding service, excellent food, reasonably priced for Los Angeles, a wonderful family owned restaurant. Genuinely family owned: While taking our order our waiter put his pad down on the table and chased some guy into the street as he was leaving. I thought maybe he tried to leave without paying. When the waiter came back, he sincerely apologized, explaining that... More

Gangadin has a wide menu, but not so large, as with many Indian restaurants, that many different dishes come in the same sauce. This is very well thought out and prepared food. Seasoned to your specifications and offering everything from vegetarian to lamb and chicken. There are curries, tandoor preparations and grilled entries. The eggplant Bharta is outstanding as is...

Visited for lunch with an Indian customer and the food was very tasty and well prepared. For lunch they have a "complete" dish that is fairly priced and very tasty.
