Since 1996, All India Cafe has been an inviting Indian dining experience that is healthy, fresh, & that shows the owners' genuine dedication to each and every guest. Discerning locals who affectionately refer to their favorite eatery as "All India" have been repeat customers for years because of the impeccable service and authentic, consistently delicious cuisine. The award-winning menu primarily draws inspiration and tradition from Northern India while infusing a bit of Southern India's flavor and flare. Everything is made fresh in the restaurant (home-style cooking without any artificial coloring or preservatives; only natural spices & fresh ingredients are used) -- the food is nutritious and comforting while being low in fat, and there are many gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options.

A local favorite and tradition, All India Cafe Pasadena has been voted Best Indian Restaurant by San Gabriel Valley residents in Pasadena Weekly's annual 'Best Of' Awards for the last 15 years and counting.

Samosas: The Snack of India

IMG_6912_preview.jpg

Undoubtedly one of our most popular and frequently-ordered appetizers, samosas are a delight to the senses. 

Historically a vegetarian dish, samosas can be filled with savory and spicy additions like lentils, peas, noodles, onions, potatoes, minced lamb, and beef. Also popular in a myriad of Asian countries and the Mediterranean, and Africa, the actual name for these turnovers varies by region, but all of the names refer to this same, dumpling-like snack that we call a samosa.

At All India Cafe, we make vegetarian samosas, stuffed with potatoes, peas, spices, herbs, and serve with a tamarind chutney for a flavor juxtaposition that is sure to thrill your palate. 

Our Samosas are also available as a vegan appetizer if you'd like -- just ask!

Have you tried our samosas? Use code SAMOSA at checkout for your next online All India Cafe order and you'll receive a free order.

For The Lassi Lover

While many think of mango as the flavor of all lassis, there are actually other varieties that are very popular in their own right. At All India Cafe in Pasadena and Glendale, we serve mango lassi, sweet lassi, and masala lassi. Here's a breakdown...

Our sweet lassis infuse homemade yogurt with rosewater, but other varieties can include fruit juices like strawberry or lemon instead of rosewater. Saffron lassis are another sweet option -- these are incredibly popular in Rajasthan and Gujarat in India. Then, of course, there is the mango lassi, which is made with mango pulp. Some mango lassis have added sugar, but at All India Cafe, we prefer to serve a healthy, natural variety and keep our offerings free of unnecessary sugar by using fresh mangoes that are sweet enough on their own.

The masala lassi is mildly spiced, and is an example of traditional lassis that are mild and/or salty. These are also made with our housemade yogurt. Traditionally, lassis are a savory drink -- a simple and refreshing blend of yogurt, water, and spices, which can include cumin.

Lassis have always been most popular eaten with lunch, but can truly be part of any meal. The yogurt is an excellent source of probiotics and healthy bacteria for your gut, which can alleviate many stomach issues. Adding turmeric to one's lassi is an ancient folk remedy for gastroenteritis (also known as the stomach flu). Turmeric combats inflammation, so this remedy is certainly one that can be relied on!

Glendale Community College will open the doors on Thursday to its Sierra Vista building, a roughly $49-million facility designed to streamline student services as well as become the new home for the culinary arts and journalism programs.

At three stories and nearly 95,000 square feet, the building is now the largest on the Verdugo campus. The facility was paid for mostly with state funds, with about 14% coming from the $98-million Measure G bond approved by voters in 2002. Construction began in 2013.

Our Family Favorites

Everyone has their favorites... here are ours:

Pawandeep: Paneer Jalfrezi

This classic dish features an assortment of mixed vegetables in a very savory yellow curry sauce  made with coconut milk. The Paneer (Indian cheese) is an addition; we also offer Tofu, Fish, Lamb, or Chicken. 

All India Cafe's Paneer is unique in that we make it fresh, in the restaurant, and never, ever buy it pre-made.

Suneha: Masala Dosa

This South Indian specialty is a crispy crepe made with rice and lentil flour, and filled with spiced potatoes. It's always served with sambar & coconut chutney for an unforgettable flavor.

Harsimran: Fish Tikka (Salmon)

Mildly marinated fresh fish of the day served with tomatoes & onions. A protein-packed, Omega-3 rich delight.

Parminder: Saag Paneer & Shahi Paneer

IMG_7281_preview.jpg

Some customers love to add chicken, lamb, shrimp, or tofu to our Saag (spinach) Paneer. Our Shahi Paneer is a very creamy sauce, made completely from scratch. We cook the Paneer with freshly peeled tomatoes, and our homemade, fresh ginger & garlic paste for hours to get the amazing taste you know and love. (Shown above with tofu)
