Food was great and not too pricey - can't find that combination in LA!! They were nice enough to offer suggestions on portions and spice level - that was very helpful.

We went for dinner tonight with our kids (ages 9/12) and we were impressed. Good portion sizes and good prices. Full meal with wine and appetizers for $70! Very attentive and friendly staff. I would return!

I was totally disappointed to eat here...No matter what you ordered, it was served in an insipid red coloured curry by very indifferent staff.The service is slow and unprofessional indicating that the restaurant is badly under staffed.

Description
Lal Mirch invites you to come and enjoy the best traditional Indian cuisine, served in an elegant and casual atmosphere. The spices used are imported directly from India to preserve the quality and freshness captured in the flavours, and a comprehensive vegetarian menu is also available. The role of spices and herbs goes beyond great cooking and great taste to be a healthy addition to any meal. You can choose from mild, medium, or hot for levels of spice, and the chef prepares each dish individually to ensure freshness, quality and satisfaction. Conveniently located in Studio City, near Universal Studios, the elegantly appointed dining area is the perfect place to begin with delicious Indian appetisers, like samosa, meat or vegetable turnovers stuffed with ground beef or mixed vegetables. Traditional lentil soup, naan breads, tandoori (clay oven) and curry dishes are all available for you to enjoy.
