Anarkali has been serving Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi food since 1980. While offering some Halal meat dishes, this establishment does serve alcohol at happy hour time (after work). Added on March 23, 2009 and last updated 8 years ago
★ Muslim beware and don't be fooled!!
I just came back from this year yesterday and I drove by this restaurant and found a big sign that said "HAPPY HOUR" i think you can find hundreds of other verified halal restaurants in CA, skip this one!! Management needs to take this add off! Posted on June 9, 2010
★★★ Went here for dinner. Please note: ONLY the Chicken and Lamb are Zabihah (i.e. the beef is NOT). Overall the food was good and tasted well. They have a decent selection of menu items. The setting is nice and semi-formal with a nice ambiance and setting. The service was pretty good. Also, you can print a $10 off coupon from their website (which makes the prices really decent). The only drawback about this place is that they serve alcohol. Posted on February 7, 2010
★★★★★ In search of a good indian restaurant in the area, my husband and I stumbled across Anarkali on Melrose. Greeted by very friendly owners and an intimate ambience, we browsed through an extensive menu and decided on ordering the Bombay Lobster, Tandoori Chicken, and Lamb Bhuna. Accompanied with roti and rice, we have to say our taste buds were aroused! All dishes were extremely tasty (especially the lobster), were non-oily (to our amazement) and presentation was great. We were too full to try the desserts but will definately be going back. Be sure to print off the $25 coupon from their website before you go! By the way, everything but the beef is halal. Owners are muslim. Posted on March 23, 2009
