  • Luke Warm

    The interior was dark and had a slight odor. We were lucky it was a warm day and the outside seating was great. We noticed that all but one set of diners choose to eat outside. The food was tasteful and the servings were generous however both of our meals were served luke-warm. The staff was very attentive. I would recommend this restaurant and next time sent my food back if it isn't hot.

    It was good, if not great Indian food: Pleasant service. A bit expensive at $30 (nearly including tip) for lunch - the buffet would probably have been the better choice.

    Had a delicious, fresh, authentic India dinner here. Always consistent. Service is good, staff is quiet, not talkative but attentive and accomodating.

    We went to the Sunday buffet. The buffet had five or six choices pluses a couple side dishes. The food was good but not great. The price $11 is very reasonable for DC.

    This used to be my neighborhood Indian place when I lived in DC. The interior has a terrible odor. As if the carpet got wet and wasn't properly cleaned afterwards. The food was pretty good. I got chicken tikka masala. However, the palak paneer was not good at all. I hate that this place isn't what it used to be.

    We've always enjoyed eating here and return frequently. Authentic Indian food with tender meat options. Good vegetarian selection. Staff is a bit quiet but pleasant and attentive.
