Very nice Indian snacks, I especially like the chilli cheese toast. I've been there a few times now, and had a good experience every time. The lunch buffet on weekends is good too.

Typical, creative, delicious food
I like this place because it has the classic Indian favorites, plus some original dishes as well as some more unusual Indian entrees. The ambience is very comfortable and modern. The staff is very attentive and the manager is always double checking. If you are looking for a combo of good typical and some creative things you can find no where else. This is a great choice. Food is tasty and amble.

The interior decor was very inviting, and the outdoor seating option allows you to enjoy the weather in downtown Rockville.

Spice Xing blew my mind. Last year I had a really bad experience with Indian food and did not want to try it again. I gave this place a chance because my wife was craving Indian food. I was kind of nervous at first until I had my first bite, I fell in love from that point on. After the experience we had, this is definitely our favorite place to eat.

Great food, really nice ambiance and great service. Garlic naan is outstanding. Nice dinner out with the girls.

Best Indian food in the Rockville area. Nice and spicy but not over the top. Lovely presentation as well. Kid-friendly in that they are very accomodating and understanding of kid messes.

Great service and fantastic food!
This was my first visit to Spice Xing. When we asked the waiter for some recommendations he suggested a lamb dish that wasn't on the menu but that could be fixed for us. He also recommended a chicken and fish dish. We ordered all three and they were wonderful. I love the spices but don't always like the heat of some curries. The waiter took that into account and his recommendations hit the mark for all of us at the table.

Very good Indian food
Food was really good especially Dal Makhani. I can go there just for that Dal. But service was just okay and it felt little expensive.

Great Find for the Gluten-Free
My wife was diagnosed with Celiac's disease over 10 years ago and back then very few if any restaurants could or would assist with this. Fast forward to today and finding yet another hidden jem in Spice Xing was wonderful - their Hostess was very helpful and before we even got there (as I had reserved a table and then called to confirm) had a menu with the list of things my wife could and not eat so that there was nothing to worry about but having a great time with the family! We had a wonderful time and my parents came to join us and we all had a lovely dinner - the lamb was wonderful and as my father is one to be very picky about lamb - saying he would come back is a huge plus! Would recommend to everyone!

Don't let appearances fool you
Spice Xing has a wonderful menu and every dish is prepared to perfection. The atmosphere is a little odd...it feels more like a mall chain restaurant than a fine dining experience. However, don't let this put you off - the food is delicious and the wait staff anxious to please!

We'll be going back.
My wife and I enjoyed our first visit to Spice Xing. We liked some dishes more than others, of course---and at this point, I would not put it on the same level as Rasika, which is our gold standard for innovative Indian cuisine---but the overall experience was very positive and we look forward to returning to try some of the other intriguing menu selections.
I rated the ambiance as 3 stars rather than 4 because the air conditioning was turned up too high. It's a good thing my wife brought a sweater with her, because otherwise we might have had to leave.

We'll go back
Our party of 4, who could easily be considered picky when it comes to restaurant cuisine, enjoyed our meal. We chose both authentic and influenced dishes (clearly labeled) from the menu and shared them. The Indian dishes were authentic and quite delicious. The influenced dishes were fun and, well yummy. I was disappointed that the chilli toast wasn't made with naan, but I still found it enjoyable. We enjoyed our evening.

If you are looking for a great Indian restaurant, look no further. We put in a request to have extra spice for our lamb curry with rotis and boy he didn't disappoint. I've been to nearby Indian restaurants and this one wins hands down.

Did not know what to expect!
Wanted to try something different. Only been to an Indian restaurant twice before as they are not common. We had lamb, salmon, and chicken. They were all excellent. Spicy, but did not interfere with the flavor of the meals. We also had their version of Flan for dessert which was both different and delicious.
The service was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. Many Nationals there which is always a good indicator for ethnic food, especially when it is not located in an ethnic neighborhood, which it is not. Good mix of people as well enjoying the dishes.
Will definitely go back and take guests.

Delicious food and great service!
The hostess, waiter, and other staff were great with our two children-very welcoming, kind, and accommodating. The food came quickly and at a good pace (kids food came soon after appetizers and a little later the adult food). We loved the butter chicken, mini dosas, and all all the rest. Our kids, especially our son, really enjoyed the food. Thanks for giving us a kid-friendly way to enjoy Indian food in a nice, spacious restaurant that is not overly loud (in volume and decor) for our autistic son. We'll be back soon :)

I really liked the food. It was better than a lot of other places I've gone to. Loved it.

People roaming around from the bar in the dining area. it should be separate... Bar should be separate division. Felt like India. the youths especially after drinking grouping near the entrance. it was really stupid.

Always happy at Spice Xing
I find spice xing consistent, good food, solid menu, good service and fair prices. I always have the chicken tikka which was perfect and the cheese in tomato sauce. Both were outstanding. Also had naan bread with garlic and a couple of tamerind martinis. The staff are friendly and professional. Spice xing always good and a great place to take friends or family.

I really enjoy Spice Xing. A bunch of friends went on Friday night and had a great time. Food was outstanding and the service was good. Great place for a meal with friends.

I recently "re-discovered" Spice X-ing. I used to come here every so often, but hadn't visited in a few years. I love this restaurant! The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. I eat at other Indian restaurants with some regularity, but Spice X-ing's versions of the usual dishes add an extra "oomph" that distinguishes the place from all the others. Prices are about average for a good restaurant.
What's somewhere between? Spice X-ing is somewhere between a place for a special occasion and your everyday neighborhood eatery. Tasteful subdued decoration.

All around great
We had a fabulous meal at SpiceXing. Chicken and lamb dishes were tender and tasty. I was worried about the spice level of the food, but I loved it all - just the right amount of spice with great tenderness to the meat. Shrimp appetizer was also quite good, Extensive bar menu with a truly decent pour on the wine.

Had not tried the restaurant for awhile but with a gift coupon, we went back. Food was excellent and the service timely and friendly. Good selection of dishes to choose from as well.

Enjoyed the evening at Spice
Enjoyed the evening at Spice Xing as we usually do. One friend thought the food was too spicy, but I like it just the way it is. Great vegetarian options and the naan bread is always delicious.

Very flavorful Dadale lamb
I was disappointed the first time I came to this restaurant, but was persuaded by a friend to give it another chance. I am glad that I did because I had a very good lamb dish. It was far superior to the almost flavorless vegetarian entree I had on my first visit. The wine selection is very good, and the mark-up is very reasonable.

Food was very good. I guess my only negative feedback was that we felt a bit rushed by the waitstaff.
