Named in honor of a town near the Taj Mahal, Agra Café is as praised among experts for serving properly spiced and consistent authentic regional dishes, such as Balti as it known among USC students for being about the most popular Indian restaurants in Los Angeles.   Tucked in the back corner of a small shopping plaza, the low slung white tablecloth dining room has been a variety of vegetarian, vegan, chicken, fish, shrimp, and lamb dishes Since 2006.  Operated by an extended family, there is alway one, sometimes two family members on site to ensure efficient, friendly service.

Agra Cafe also may have plenty of parking but free delivery is just as easy and goes after midnight.  That’s why students at USC love it, in house or at their frat houses.  No lunch time buffet at this place but plenty of lunch specials.

Agra Café standouts include Onion Bhaji (ball shape thin onion slices, with spices and grain flower), Tandoori Chicken, Fish Balti (stew) and Paswari Naan (naan bread stuffed with almonds, raisins, and shredded coconut). You can also find these items online where we offer online delivery. We cook with the freshest ingredients so that you experience the best Indian food that we can provide.

Balti, belongs to the category of Kashmiri curry with its roots in the Islamic cuisine of northern Pakistan, cooked and served in handled metal pots that resemble miniature woks. In practice, the word balti has come to mean almost any fiercely hot curry served to the overwhelmingly English clientele of the balti houses of Birmingham (England) Here students can order food and eat it even after midnight.

Garlic basil naan is another favorite.

While typical, the  Saag Paneer is creamier than most and the paneer cheese cubes, made in-house, contrasting to the smoother texture makes it a standout here.   Cumin is what makes the fluffy white rice unique.
