Diner Reviews
  • "This is our family's favorite Indian restaurant in the Alexandria area - I'm from India, and am picky about Indian food. The food here is just excellent - favorite appetizers: spinach chaat, salt and pepper fish; favorite orders: chicken tikka masala, lamb rogan josh, baingan bharta (eggplant dish), okra; favorite desserts: ras malai, gulab jamun. The service also exceeds expectations - The staff is very attentive to all diners, and you never have to look around for a server or have to ask for water or a refill or anything."

  • "while the food was not something to rave about, the service was excellent. My only complaint was that the A/C was broken and it was 10 degrees hotter inside than outside. which is the reason I rated the ambiance as poor. Also the explanation given as to why it was not fixed by dinner time, when I arrived to dine, was not plausible. No effort was made to rectify the situation either, not just for me but for all the customers present (like propping open the two doors or a fan would have been helpful, what with WalMart across the street). Left disappointed, but shall return soon. I believe in second chances."

  • "This is a cozy restaurant with very nice interior decoration. The food is very good and the staff friendly and attentive. It can get busy on Friday and Saturday nights so it is best to reserve a table on those nights."

  • "Spinach chaat was great. Other entrees also were good. Goat meat was too bony so I wouldn't get that again."

  • "I have lived a mile from this restaurant for 5years now and I have never had a bad experience. The food is always amazing, the brunch on Sundays is worth it and the atmosphere is fun. Space can be a little tight but they make up for it with great and attentive service. I've brought friends, family and dates to this place and everyone has always walked away happy. "

  • "An OK place to stop if at the mall maybe but there was something off about the food, not authentic tasting. Perfectly pleasant place, reasonable service. Food oddly different from other Indian food available in the States. Like they were working with the wrong ingredients. "

  • "Went here the other night with my little sister, and my parents, and we had a great time! The service is friendly and the food is fantastic! It's family style so the prices seem high, but it's just bigger portions that should be ordered for the whole table. We ordered a lot of entrees and naan and it was all really tasty! Spiced and seasoned well, and the naan was so good! "

  • "I could not even eat my food because it tasted horrible. Immediately I saw it I knew it was something wrong. Even my husbands tasted bad. I complained and then learned the restaurant got a new cook. For me I will not be there till there is a better cook new cook. It use to be the best Indian Restaurant until now, therefore please do not change your repution!"

  • "This was the best Indian food I have had in a very long time. I have not been pleased with the Indian restaurants in Northern Va. and was excited to finally find a place where I would actually return. I went at 5 on a Saturday and it was not crowded yet, but by the time we left, there was a wait. The service was excellent, the food arrived relatively quickly and the cost was reasonable. I had the Baby Spinach Chaat and the non-vegetarian Thali Plate which was more than enough food and offered a delicious sampling of various menu items."

  • "Tried Aditi after reading the on-line reviews. Dishes are very well executed, the spices are well balanced and subtle. The Chicken biryiani was almost as good as my mother's and that's a tall order. The lamb roganjosh was a perfect accompaniment. If you go on a Friday evening for dinner, make a reservation."

  • "My wife and I had a great time at Aditi's. The atmosphere was cozy and romantic. The food was very good and the menu has been well laid out, namely regional specialities. The wine list was good. To top it all, the waiters were superb. We have never come across any restaurant, where the waiters paid 100% attention to you and keep coming to your table waiting hand and foot. I highly recommend Aditi to both American and Indian friends."

  • "I love Aditi!! I've been several times for other occasions. I felt it was a good choice for a small Valentine's Day dinner with my wife and teenage daughter. As always, they were very busy. Even with the business, the service and food quality did not suffer. The place is small and it would be quite advantageous if they acquired a slightly larger space within the Kingstowne area. The only downside to the evening was having to wait 30 minutes after the start of my reserved time. It being Valentine's Day, I'm sure people were trying to be more romantic and caring, therefore taking a little more time to consume their meals. It's a tight fit, but the place always feels comfortable. I have yet to be disappointed going there!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is our favorite Indian place in the area. The food and service as always was very good. It was Valentine's Day so they were of course busy. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our 6:45 reservation. The hostess was overwhelmed with the task of organizing and seating all the reservations. Her biggest error was to tell anyone who asked that they would be seated next when we were all within earshot. When we were seated our table was in the isle right next to the kitchen with the grand view of the bus station. I asked for a different table and we were reseated at a nicer table. I'll just chalk it up to the busy day and we will continue to eat there."

  • "This was our third time at Aditi, and we always have impeccable service here. The staff is incredibly helpful and offers the right recommendations. I do not like spicy (hot) food, and they've always recommended fantastic, fragrant, delicious dishes that were perfect for my taste--without making me feel silly for asking for something not spicy at an Indian restaurant. In the suburban land of chain restaurants, Aditi is a true gem."

  • "Went for Sunday brunch with wife and three kids. Got great table with reservation through OpenTable. Food great. Kids loved the buttered chicken. Only negative was it took a long time to get the bill."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Beyond the food being great, the service was perfect- not over bearing but very attentive and quick. Fresh naan brought to the table during a buffet lunch is a nice touch. The food was very good though a small variety. But the dishes were diverse enough to sample different flavors. By it being a small variety though, the dishes did not sit long since they were being consumed and you are able to try a little of everything without a tremendous amount of guilt about it. Overall - I will go back and will recommend this place to others!"

  • "We have eaten at Aditi several times for dinner and decided to try their brunch. It was fantastic! They had a wide selection of dishes (something for everyone - both vegetarians and meat lovers) and you can't beat the value - $11.99 per person! The staff, as always, was very friendly and attentive."

  • "There were 5 of us in our party. Two of us chose vegetarian plates, one chicken, one veal, and one shrimp. All of the dishes were flavorful with large portions. The wait staff was attentive. We were happy that we made reservations ahead of time, as there would have been a 40 minute wait. Everything about the evening was spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "Service is friendly and attentive, and the food its always amazing. I get something different each time because there are so many options, and each one is delicious. My wife always gets the saag lamb, because she likes to find something good and stick with it; she tried the saag lamb the first time we went and got it every time until I convinced her to try the Cochin shrimp curry, and now she always gets that. The staff does an excellent job, being attentive without being obtrusive, and they're always so friendly. Overall, an awesome restaurant!"
