Tantra closed in Silver Lake?

Tantra in Silver Lake has been on a downward slide seemingly for years now, randomly closing for events and then re-opening to provide bathrooms for Sunset Junction revelers. Now the fusion Indian restaurant with perhaps Silver Lake's most ambitious decor seems to have disconnected phones and isn't on Open Table anymore. A Chowhound poster thought it had already turned into a sushi restaurant, but I don't think it's been closed long enough to turn into anything. With Koda just a few doors away, the last thing Silver Lake needs is another dubious sushi restaurant. I ought to start believing my intuition, because just the other day the thought suddenly came into my head, "I'll bet Tantra isn't around anymore."

Too bad, it wasn't bad and the atmosphere was really great. We almost headed out last night to satisfy some Indian food hunger.

Guess it's Electric Lotus for us or that place in the mini-mall opopsite Akbar.

Don't diss Agra Cafe! (That's the Indian place across from Akbar.) We were dubious too till the Indians across the street from us in Atwater Village ordered dinner from Agra. We've been hooked ever since! (Although we remain dubious that they dumb down the spices a bit for us white people.) - AVN

Is it confirmed gone? Can't say I've been in there lately tho I did like their saag paneer and the pretty fountain.
Stop thinking bad thoughts about restaurants, Pat....you're putting an EatingLA curse on them!

Tanta was pretty good, I thought it was some of the best Indian food in the neighbs but a little pricey compared to Electric Lotus.

I can't say that I've had the best experience at Agra Cafe.

Tantra. Never went there. I hear the food was good, but it took forever to come!
