OC Weekly's Description
Traditions isn't in a pretty part of Tustin. The building it now occupies was abandoned by Roderick's-the kind of nightclub-cum-restaurant that looked best in the dark. In the harsh light of day, the place reeked of urban blight, weather-worn and tired. The standalone structure, flanked by a gas station, is dusty and adrift on the hot asphalt parking lot of a near treeless mini-mall. But the minute you walk through its doors, you enter a dimly-lit sanctuary decorated with peacock feathers and cooled by a hard-working A/C system. Also in the air: the syncopated rhythms of Indian drums and the bold aromas of what could only be Indian curries, bubbly breads, and char-singed tandoor meats.
Tips from foursquare
The Gobi Paratha is a must! Whole-wheat flatbread stuffed with masala-spiced cauliflower. Instead of being rolled into the bread, this is spread as a layer between two thin sheets of the bread. Yum!
Great lunch special buffet and price. Always fresh.
I love the food here! And wait staff are all pleasant, and they remember you.
The chicken madras is really good here especially with a garlic naan
Great indian food... at a low price...
