Food is very tasty and full of flavor. I would recommend the naan and if you are a vegetarian there is a large selection of veggie dishes. Owner is very friendly and came up to us to ask us how our food was and chat with us. Environment is urban, hip, full of people, and at the same time not overcrowded. Appeared to be a nice place to bring a date or to have a large dinner party, as that is what we observed. We went in the evening and experienced Bollywood on a large screen with romantic, dim lighting. We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends.

I love Indian food, and Electric Karma has the best best best Indian food in Los Angeles. This is the most authentic food I have had in LA, and I have gone to many Indian restaurants. You have to try the Nirvana Chicken with Milk Sauce - it is amazing!

I went to Electric Karma for my birthday celebration. I wanted to have a fun new experience and sit on the floor and maybe even eat with my hands!! When we arrived, they were not kind or inviting. The atmosphere was nice, but the restaurant was so dark that I couldn't read the menu well. We did end up sitting on the ground which was cozy but when my husband asked about eating with our hands, the waiter responded, "You can eat however you want, i just bring you your food" and then proceeded to lecture us about why people eat with their hands. We were in shock!! Needless to say, we didn't eat with our hands. Later on when ordering other drinks rather than water, my friend stated that she would just have water and the waiter said "It's already in front of you on the table." What??? And when someone tried to order Chicken Curry, she asked if was the tomato or coconut based curry to which our lovely waiter responded with " the descriptions are on the menu and you can read those." Again, WHAT?? We were in so much shock, we didn't know what to do. I have never experience such rude service. I will never go back to this restaurant nor will I recommend it to anyone. we were there with a group of 7 and the service was horrible. The food was okay, but that waiter ruined the whole evening with his behavior.

It seems that the only time I eat Indian food is when I order delivery for a small party. There are about 20 Indian places that deliver and I have always been a bit disappointed but once I found Electric Karma i have been very pleased. Since then I have been ordering a combo at least once every other week.

Electric Karma is so unbelievably charming! It is gorgeous inside - totally zen and very warm. You can choose to sit at a table or you can choose to sit on the floor atop big fluffy cushions and have your food served to you there. If you go on a busy night like Friday or Sat there will be a live band that will play Indian style music - very relaxing. A remarkable dining experience! Make sure to have a mango lassy or some nand because no indian dinning experience is complete without those two things - but at Electric Karma they are especially yummy! ELectric Karma is my favorite Indian restaurant in all of LA!

I wasn't particularly impressed with this restaurant although their Indian Sangria was quite tasty. The lamb biryiani was pretty good but a little pricey I thought. The decor is very nice and is a good place for either a date or party. The service was a little slow too. There are better Indian restaurants in LA but you could certainly do worse.

Just got back after having dinner with some friends at Electric Karma. I'm Indian so am usually suspicious of most "Indian" restaurants as the food tends to be a little "catered" to the western palate. I went there because of the good reviews on this site. Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was really lively - there was a true-to-form Bollywood movie playing on a big screen and the decor was quite festive. The "Indian sangria" (first time I've heard of it!) was actually quite decent. The food was very tasty - spicy enough without being too hot and the naan bread was well made. I guess what finally made the night was a good ol' LA star sighting - Jennifer Love Hewitt (+ her boyfriend, I guess) decided to sit in the table right next to us!

Pros: Excellent decor, good food

Cons: They get some large parties and seem to be a little understaffed for weekends

Electric Karma is inexpensive with really good food. The interior courtyard is fun and a pretty fantastic setting for lunch or dinner. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The one caveat is Surya is just a few blocks east on Third and has better food... the difference in quality might be lost on your average person but for a connoisseur of Indian cuisine it is undeniable. That said, if you want good food in a fun atmosphere Electric Karma is hard to beat.

i've eaten here four or five times over the past year and it has gotten better and better each time i've gone. i went the other night for dinner and was reminded of how beautiful and romantic the back patio is at night - soft pillows on persian rugs, open air roof/canopy, small fountain, and candles galore. it is the perfect place to go on a date. the inside is also nice, but the patio is wonderful on a warm evening. the food was also unbelievable. we had the lamb karhai and were really pleased with the delicate flavors, perfect spice, and tender lamb. the ingredients are really fresh and well put together and the dishes don't leave you feeling over-full or heavy. overall, an excellent meal in a lovely setting.

I never really liked Indian food until I discovered Electric Karma. The BEST chicken Tikka Masala in town! I crave this dish. With ALL natural spices this is your best bet. The staff is friendly and the trip to Bollywood is classic. Don't miss their Sangria. Whether you dine with one friend or 12, this is the place to go for great food and a fun atmoshphere.

I really love Electric Karma! The coconut curry is amazing...The Indian mojitos and sangria are delicious. The patio is very relaxing and a great place for a large group. Plus, the Bollywood videos on the big screen....I love it there...

we love this restaurant... big time indian food fans we've had them all.

The combo of the Bollywood movies, Punjabi MC's and the nicest management ever makes this a must dine in the beverly/fairfax district.

No attitude, great music and visuals and great service!

Although the food was good, this place was overpriced for what you get - especially considering that it was nothing special. Moreover, the fact that our server had a European accent was quick confusing to us.

Please, please avoid this pretentious mediocrity. The only good things about "Electric Karma" are its name and ambiance. Extremely rude service right from the door ( don't expect the waitress to show up at your table more often than once every 45 min either) tasteless curry and tikka masala (the veggy entries were also very poorly made), and an extremely oversalted lassy (I asked the waitress to exchange it for another one with less salt in it and after 15-20 minutes of waiting got a drink with exactly the same proportions-impossible to drink let alone enjoy). That is all I remember from that dinner. Never ever would I step in that crappy joint. Too bad, it is located in such a nice neighborhood.

I love Electric Karma. The environment is fun and very relaxed. The have interesting drinks and live music on the weekends. I don't think a lot of people have discovered this place, good for me...bad for them. FYI - It's right across the street from Toast. The patio is also really nice during the evening.

The first time I went, the food was pretty good and the service was fine, but the real draws were the ambience and the cocktails - the mango Indian sangria and the Indian mojitos are exceptional. However, the second time I went, everything was excellent, and there were eight of us sharing a variety of dishes.
