The Choudhury Family

One of the first Indian restaurants to set up shop within the heart of Los Angeles, Anarkali has garnered high acclaim for its menu of diverse curry dishes that are a perfect blend of Northern Indian and Bengali influences.

Saad and Fatema Choudhury built Anarkali in 1983 around the vision that it would become an extension of the warm hospitality family and friends have come to look forward within their own home. Loyal patrons will tell you that beyond their favorite dishes, they have come to fall in love with the wholehearted greeting and smile they have been receiving from Saad and Fatema since Anarkali’s early days on Melrose.

Not only has Anarkali has become the go to place for Angelenos to experience authentic Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine, but it has also served as an oasis to enjoy with friends and families. The Choudhury family is honored that Anarkali has become a touchstone for authentic dining and service.
