Gangadin Indian Cuisine is Authentic and Healthful

Manmeet Sahni and his family love Studio City and their neighborhood clientele


Running is a family affair. Mom, Sangeeta Sahni, beside her son Sangmeet, was dishing up Punjabi cuisine at their farmer’s market booth when I visited a couple of Sundays ago, while patriarch Manmeet Sahni oversaw service inside the venerable restaurant. 

Gangadin has been feeding Studio City for 28 years, recently celebrating a birthday at its Ventura Place location. The family is devoted to pleasing their customers. They now take into account special dietary needs and feature vegan and gluten free items on the menu.

Before I left, Manmeet pressed into my arms a poster extolling the health-giving virtues of turmeric.

“I take that,” I told him. “You have to take it with black pepper,” I crowed, showing off my knowledge of nutrition. 

“You have to cook it with black pepper,” Manmeet rejoined. For that – since I never cook – I will have to return to Gangadin.

In , Mrs. Sahni and Sangmeet don’t hold back their thoughts about the prospect of Ventura Place becoming a pedestrian park.

Great feature. I have eaten there and the food, service and appeal is always top notch.

Service there is horrible...insulting...combative...food is fair...prices above average..sorry...the Thai place up the street seems to WANT your business...I once owned a place in Washington so I sympathize with restaraunt owners, but the owner here, or his wife (?) was down right rude. I have allergy to carnations and she refused to move a small vase with carnations from the table, and when I set it on a neighboring table she stormed back and returned it to my table, even AFTER I explained the problem. Not the way to run a shoe string cafe...
