    We had tasted their food at Los Angeles magazine restaurant event and we liked it, so we decided to try the restaurant. Food and service were great, and we liked the ambiance as well. There was a restaurant at this location called Faith and Flower. They had done a good job of total remodeling of the place. We definitely recommend this restaurant.

    I understand that this was suppose to be an "elevated" Indian food experience, however, the food just wasn't up to the "elevated" experience. I much prefer the traditional cuisine with much more depth and flavor than the dishes offered here.

    Notes on service that could use improvement. 1. Wait staff should introduce themselves first rather than the 1st question being “Do you know what you want to drink?” A greeting would’ve been nice. 2. No explanation on menu or inquiring if we’ve been at the restaurant before. 3. Servers should describe each dish while dropping off at table. Only the dessert course that was handled by the manager was described.

    I wasn't expecting much from this place. I felt it was better than a lot of Indian restaurants I've been to trying to be a fine dining experience. They didn't have the Lamb Shank Nihari which I wanted to try but overall a positive meal experience with friends.

    I’ve heard great things about this spot, and had been wanting to come here to check it out for myself for some time. Maybe because it was so hyped up for me, I was personally quite underwhelmed. I came at an earlier hour, right when the restaurant opened and the front desk staff was very friendly and sat us right away. Same goes for the waiting staff - everyone was incredibly helpful and nice. For me personally, the food was not worth it. I really enjoy Indian food and I have tried different levels of Indian cuisine, so I like to think I have a good understanding of what it can be at its best. And, unfortunately, this just wasn’t it for me. I have to give credit to the beautiful presentation, and the food wasn’t bad, I just think I expected more. Beautiful spot and well thought out conceptual elements, maybe I’ll come back for the drinks only next time. Thank you Baar Baar for the awesome service!

    The place catches the eye has nice atmosphere so we decided to try. The staff was very attentive and helpful but the food quality was very poor especially for the price. We know quality and we know Indian food and this is why we will not eat here again. They are overcharging for ambience but the food left us wanting and unsatisfied. If they brought the food quality to match their service and ambience it would be worth the value.

    We tried the cauliflower, pretty good, the mushroom and the eggplant. For some reason all the appetizers were lukewarm, not hot. The butter chicken was very tasty and the Naan tasted good,l. But stove issues with service, our drinks arrived pretty late into the meal and we asked for a second order of the Naan which was totally forgotten until we brought it to their attention a few times. To be fair they comped our dessert which was a nice gesture. Overall a good experience
