The food was good but I expected better. The samosas were delicious and cheese nana also spectacular. However the bone in beef barely had any meat on it and was super tough and the tikka masala - the stew was good but the chicken was also super tough didn’t seem like it was stewing for a while. The desserts were also delicious- overall nice place but I expected more.

A truly great Indian restaurant. Well-balanced but unique flavors. A nod to the traditional while doing something new...it's a fresh, fun experience in a trendy little spot a short walk away from The Grove.

I have visited the downtown Badmaash many times and this was my first visit to the Fairfax spot. Loved the location, super friendly staff and the simple and clean interior! The food is unbeatable and my fave (as a Canadian) is the chicken tikka poutine!

I’m extremely picky about Indian food and am always impressed by Badmaash. Yes, it’s fusion but there a definitely some very authentic dishes too. We had a very enjoyable evening.

Loved everything we got. The badass tikka, spiced lamb burger, both samosas, and Masala fries. They also had a great selection of beer, but they were all in cans or bottles and not on draft.

Celebrated Fathers here after attending a performance at a nearby theatre. They graciously accommodated us when we arrived a half hour earlier than expected. The food was fantastic. We shared the house made India Pickles,Dad’s Coconut Curry Mussels, the Fish Moilee( I could’ve eaten an entire bowl of this delicious sauce alone and been happy) and the Butter Chicken , all accompanied by Rosemary Naan and Basmati Pilaf. Everything was wonderful and made even better by Donald , who provided exceptional service and helped make this a place we will eagerly return to.

We ordered a wide variety spread and every single dish was phenomenal! Every. One. Fried butter chicken sammich, Dad's famous coconut curry mussels, lamb chops, samosa, pickles, broccoli tandoori, fish oilee, saag paneer, and a few others. We come from the Central Coast area and are always excited when events bring us to LA...that means Badmaash for dinner!

LA meet Bombay at This Fairfax eatery. It’s still Indian food but not your typical run-of-the-mill range of dishes. Definitely worth a visit.

Great, creative Indian food. I love Indian food but was excited to try some thing new with a twist. Our server was lovely and overall attentive and the food was very good at an overall fair price point (exception would be wines by the glass which seemed a bit pricey though). My main complaint was the noise level was pretty intense and the background music left a lot to be desired. I'm far from a prude but practically every other song that came on was pretty vulgar and extremely profanity laced. I felt a little embarassed and awkward for the elderly parents sitting with their adult kids at the table next to me when f*cken this and that were blaring over the loudspeakers. It detracted from the experience. Please reconsider your playlist!
