Located in a neighborhood home to many of SGV’s most famous restaurants (Sea Harbour and everything at Westfield Santa Anita), Bhanu’s could easily be overlooked. But that would be a big mistake, because this family-run grocery store has a small restaurant inside that serves some of the best Indian food this side of downtown. At a hot $11, the thali plate (which comes with an entree, two sides, yogurt, rice, and garlic naan) is the best way to get as much on your table as possible.
