The search for great Indian food in the Valley can be long and treacherous, but if you’re in Studio City, Lal Mirch is a great place to start. The colorful, family-run spot along Ventura has a large menu that includes every staple in the book, and at lunchtime, all those staples are in the $10 range with soup, rice, and naan included. They also have a ton of vegetarian options.
