My husband and I just visited Pradeep's for the first time and I love the idea of healthy Indian food. The food itself was absolutely wonderful. The service, however, was so rude and that is the only reason I'm giving this restaurant 3 stars. I am a former waitress and I know how frustrating it can be when someone comes in later than expected. The restaurant closes at 10 and the kitchen closes at 9:30. We came in at exactly 9 and I was told not once but twice by the waitress that we needed to 'hurry up and order the kitchen closes at 9:30' while my husband ran right outside the door to get his wallet. We ordered our entire meal within 5 mins (including the time he was outside) and the food came out only 5-10 mins later which was excellent but the entire time we ate we felt uncomfortable because they watched us like hawks. I was already going to hurry because I did not want to keep them but there were two other tables still there. We felt very rushed and left at exactly 9:40. Of course they didn't need to clean up after us because they had already asked if we were done and took our plates. We may try going back because the food was very good and I will try to chop it up to one bad inexperienced server and some cook who felt the need to rush us that one night.

I don't know what the in-house experience is here, but we ordered delivery and were highly disappointed. Claimed free delivery, but had hidden delivery charges. The portions were really small and the food took over an hour to get a mile away. Everything was cold and the food itself was nothing about which to write home. Guess these guys didn't take into account that there are many choices for Indian food in this city, and they will not again be ours.

Pros: They serve Indian food

Cons: Small portions, delivery charges, cold food

POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE ...We have ordered from Pradeep's several times and the food has always been good, albeit expensive for what you actually get. Ordered tonight and they left out the samosas. We were told when we called that we were out of luck, the samosas were in the bag. They were in fact NOT in the bag so if you're considering ordering from a restaurant that has such POOR customer service think again. There are so many good places that actually value their customers and cost far less. And give you your entire order and don't argue with you.

A lot of my other favorite Indian restaurants (Nawab, Akbar) have slightly better food but fugly atmosphere. Pradeep's is adorable inside and the food is great. I know their whole thing is healthy Indian food but luckily the food is so great you never think about the missing cream or ghee. Nice to have some salad on the plate, too.

I can't say enough good things. Pradeep is a hands-on chef and very warm and talented. Try the Vindaloo -- you won't be disappointed. A+

Based on reading reviews of every Indian restaurant on the Westside, plus having tried (and enjoyed) many others--we decided to give Pradeep's a shot. Right away, we loved the warm (yet casual) environment, and the service was friendly and prompt, not snooty. More than anything though, the food was excellent. We tried the special salmon, which melted in our mouths. The vegetarian sampler plate was amazing--terrifically nuanced flavors, and hard to believe they cook with no butter or cream. You never miss the unhealthy ingredients! The naan was very fresh. We also tried the lemon ball rice appetizer--which was actually more like a salad with puffed rice. Different, but light and fun. This restaurant appears to be a little hole in the wall, but it's going to become a regular stop of ours in the future.

Lot's of vegetarian dishes and great Indian dishes. We almost always use the delivery and now coupled with the ability to order online it makes it soooooo easy to have dinner.

Many people are surprised to learn that most Indian food is made with clarified butter, otherwise known as ghee. Many sauces are also made with cream and milk, and Indian food can be heavy, if not downright unhealthy. Even regular Naan bread is not really vegetarian!

Thankfully, Pradeeps is one of the few places in LA where you can get healthy Indian food that does not use ghee. Instead, they use plant oils like olive oil. The taste is not compromised at all, and the food is infinitely better for you. In fact, because the food is a little lighter than most Indian cuisine, I find it even more enjoyable.

Pros: Healthy, Big Menu, Affordable

A refreshing twist on Indian cuisine - dishes are made without butter or cream, so you enjoy a deliciojus Indian meal without that I-just-had-Indian-food-and-ate-too-much feeling. (You know what I mean.) The roasted eggplant soup should not be missed. Ambiance is peaceful. Great date spot. Plenty of vegetarian options.
