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.

We are proud to serve food that caters to everyone -- meat lovers, vegetarians, those who are gluten-free, and vegans, too!

Another very popular Instagrammer, @veganvixenla, recently came to our Pasadena location for her perfect rainy day vegan lunch: Tofu Tikka Masala, Gobi Aloo, and Chapati! "This was the first place I had ever tried Indian food over a decade ago, and I'm so happy that they now advertise having several vegan options on their menu!"

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!
