Diner Reviews
  • "We booked this restaurant for a family of 5 for lunch on a Sunday afternoon by 2:30pm. When we got there with kids and all, the gentleman promptly turned us back stating that we have no valid appointment for that time and that they were closed to clients. He rudely and bluntly refused inspite of us showing him our confirmed appointment. I would not recommend this place to anyone."

  • "Went during the cold snap and it was cold...even with my jacket on. They even charged $7 for the hot tea to warm up. Seems penny wise and dollar foolish for a restaurant. Nevertheless the food was tasty."

  • "I attended a colleague's wedding here in August, 2013 and had been wanting to return for dinner. A cousin's birthday on February 27, 2014 afforded me that opportunity. My eyes were bigger than my stomach so we took home many leftovers. Loved the dal, the condiment assortment of chutneys and sauces (the cilantro was divine) and the calamari. Our server was a little low-key but it was a weeknight and rather quiet so perhaps he works better when it's super busy. I will definitely return soon."

  • "We had dinner there for the first time on Saturday. We wanted something other than Masala Art which we enjoy and eat there frequently. Heritage turned out to be a very nice place too. We will eat there again. Serves bothe Northerna dn Souther Indian food. I had the lamb vindaloo and it was perfectly seasoned unliket Masala Art who makes it way too spicy. My wife had a chicken dish whose name escapes me. If you are in the mood for Indian food by all means give the Heritage a try."

  • "This was the first time we have tried an Indian restaurant . We had an appetizer of a disk that included puffed wheat. It was tasty. The main dish of prawns with lentil/ yogurt sauce was good . We ordered garlic naan. It was good but the plain one might have been better with our choices. I had a dessert of cottage cheese balls in a light syrup- they were horrible and I did not eat them all after tasting nor .it was a fun experience. But Indian cuisine is not one of my favorites."

  • "I have eaten at Heritage India many times before and have really enjoyed the food. The food is usually great and very authentic. I went there on Friday and the chicken Tikka Masala was not cooked properly. We asked the staff and were brought new portions of chicken twice, but each time the chicken was still undercooked, pink, and chewy. They really tried to remedy the situation, and were nice about it, but we still ended up with raw chicken and stomach aches that night and the next day. The lamb dosa was great. It's a shame that I won't be eating there again."

  • "My husband and I went here for dinner for Valentine's Day. The service was very good - the waiters explained the multiple menus to us. The food was tasty. My only complaint was that the tables were a bit too close together. We were at a 2 person table and was hard to have a private conversation. Also, trying to maneuver in and out of our chairs was a bit tricky - we almost knocked the food off of the table next to us."

  • "I had remembered this restaurant as a recommended Indian restaurant in Georgetown, but was disappointed by the mediocre food. It's hard to get good Indian food in DC, and this is yet another so-so restaurant. I'm going to stick with my favorite Passage to India in Bethesda for next time."

  • "My wife and I had eaten at Heritage more than a decade ago and had a very pleasant meal. We returned to G'town with our children and once again were pleasently surprise of the food quality, the great and kind service by the staff. We would return again if the opportunity arises."

  • "Heritage India has a new menu, and the food is still very good, so it remains one of our favorite Indian restaurants. We would definitely go back to try other new items on the menu. The restaurant has high quality food at a very reasonable price - we had two appetizers, salmon tandoori, and three vegetable sides. We took home more than half of the salmon, so the order was more than enough for two. The only drawback was that the main courses came out a little too quickly, but that was somewhat mitigated by the fact that the vegetables come in pots that rest over a small candle, so they remain hot throughout the meal."

  • "There was a wedding party underway at Heritage India, so our group was shunted to Heritage Asia. We had extremely slow service despite the fact that for at least an hour we were the only party there. The food seemed to be of lesser quality than I remember in the past."

  • "Heritage India has the best traditional north Indian food in the area, bar none. The new menu no longer includes my wife's and my favorite non-vegetarian dish, grouper jalfreezi. At our request, though, the kitchen made it for us. It was just as good as ever, and maybe even better. How the chef gets the fish to come out so firm and properly cooked despite the fact that it is fully coated by spices and the delicious, tomato-based curry sauce is a mystery. I hope the restaurant puts it back on the menu. The first-class aloo gobi masala, saag paneer, chana masala, and tandoori roti were also as good as usual."

  • "We had a large group and were seated next to another large group; our tables were so close that it was difficult to move around. Waiters were indifferent. Food was pretty good but not gourmet."

  • "Heritage serves up classic Indian food, and based on our visits over the past years, is consistently very good. A starter platter to begin with a nice variety of tastes. Chicken tikka for the lady, and lamb vindaloo for me; along with nan and dal for the table. Everything was well prepared and delicious. Attentive service as well."

  • "The actual taste of the food was excellent, I would rank this restaurant two steps below Rasika.However, Heritage India like many Indian restaurants, fits into the "forgettable" category of generic dining. The service was terrible, we had to ask twice for everything. It took 45 minutes to get the check, and they just left our food sitting on the table for that amount of time."

  • "Really tasty food with a good selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes for those who want them. Attentive and professional wait staff. Peaceful atmosphere. Highly recommended!"

  • "We had service that was borderliine neglectful and the waiter brought my husband lamb when he ordered chicken. We think that the fact the tip automatically tacked on to a party of 6 or more may have been part of the reason."

  • "Excellent Food and Service. The restaurant is very well decorated. Not only is the food extremely good but the presentation is impressive. I am very pleased with my experience and would recommend it to anyone who likes Indian food. Be careful on what you order some meals can be very spicy, be ready for that."

  • "Usually our "go-to" place in DC for Indian food, unfortunately this time were were a little disappointed. No real complaints just a bit "off"...First: They did not seem to take note of our name when given upon our arrival with our "open table" reservation resulting in an email a few days later asking why were were a "no show" - I responded accordingly that yes we were there! 2nd:The lamb in the dish I ordered was not as tender as usual, it was a bit tough. The wait staff was fine but not as friendly as in the past."
