Located in Beverly Grove, Cardamom is one of the most underrated neighborhood Indian restaurants in LA. The wide-ranging menu features excellent curries, tandoori, and other house specialties, but the biryani is simply not to be missed. We like the dum gosht and cinnamon-laced murgh biryani, but it’s important to note that, no matter what variety you order, spicy means spicy at Cardamom. Plan accordingly, and be prepared for your lips to still be sizzling in the morning.
