We really liked this place's take on Indian food. It was much lighter than some southern versions. One of the highlights was a fusion appetizer: ceviche tostadas that had Indian seasonings in the mix (garam masala? I asked the chef but he wouldn't reveal). We also enjoyed various lamb and chicken dishes. The servers were friendly and the little neighborhood in South Pasadena was delightful.
Placed a pickup order through their website. When we arrived, they said the order did not go through and we had to provide another credit card. Long story short, we were charged twice for the same meal and since then three different people at Radhika have refused to assist in any way. Awful customer service. As to the food specifically, I'd give it two stars -- under-cooked meat is never ideal. There are several better Indian options in the area.
Best samosas ever! It was an absolutely joyful experience to dine at Radhika. Their paneer was freshly made- very smooth! The tikka masala sauce to go with it was very rich and hearty. Not like cheap and salty, the sauce was creamy, well balanced and genuine. The Bharta I had was very well made too. I could taste the charred eggplant. The layers of flavors within one spoon of Bharta was very balanced and rich. Oh, I have to give a thumbs up to the basmati rice---great fragrance!😋
Heavenly package of meals from a long-time favorite of South Pasadena and surrounding areas. Fresh ingredients prepared in an authentic way by experienced chef-owners who trained in Indian Hotel Service in India. We love the Chicken tikka and the lamb shank. Perfect to go with grilled brussels sprouts and cauliflower and exceptional rice and flavored naans.
First of all this place is not for Indians. They aim for the rest of the population in South Pasadena. You will not get authentic spicy Indian food here. I visited this place 3 times and was totally disappointed. The Indian chicken Biriyani came something like tomato rice cooked by some Mexican Chef. All the Nans were over cooked and burnt. The Tandoori chicken was undercooked with pink color inside. The Latino ladies who came to serve the food didn’t care to ask me what level of spicy food I need. They had some side business inside and was talking over phone. Finally everything came so bland. The stuffed chicken paratha had some white colored chicken pieces inside with no masala.blahh. It was disgusting. When I complained they gave me 30 percent reduction in my bill. It looks like they serve ready made canned chutney for the Pappadam basket. I had the worst experience here. It is a prime place near the Farmers market and any other Restaurant would have made lot of money if they own this cute little place.
