Great restaurant! We had a group of five and everything was perfect. Every dish we had was good, including salmon, chicken, lamb, and vegatarian dishes. The service, headed by our waiter Rinu, was perfect as well. This is a great Indian restaurant that we will be dining at often!

Amazing dinner at Aditi!
I was told that Aditi has the best Indian food outside of Washington, DC and I was not disappointed! I originally had a reservation for 8 people, but the staff was very accommodating with a last minute change to 10. Our server was very patient in explaining new dishes to us and made some excellent recommendations. Our group has a mix of dietary restrictions including a couple vegetarians, gluten free and other allergies, and all of us were pleased with our meals. Aditi also has a full bar (with deliciously strong cocktails) and a nice selection of wines by the glass. I definitely want to go back to try the lunch buffet that we were told is also offered on the weekends. The overall ambience of the restaurant is very low-key and inviting.

We really enjoyed our Easter
We really enjoyed our Easter Brunch lunch at Aditi Indian Dining. Food was great, lots to choose from. Would recommend if you'd like to try Indian food.

Competent Indian lunch
Most of the Indian restaurants I've been to have lunch buffets, and Aditi is no different. The buffet was appropriately-sized for the location (...across from a movie theater complex with moderate lunchtime traffic)--two salads, vegetarian entree, three vegetable curries and two meat curries. The food was warm. The goat curry had bones in it. However, everything was flavorful. The bar was competent. The price was fair for two drinks and two trips to the buffet. The only real issue was the music choice--club music during lunch raises eyebrows when work calls with a question. Regardless, when I'm looking for Indian food and in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to stop back in at Aditi.

Wonderful food. Our group
Wonderful food. Our group had four different orders and loved them all. The spinach appetizer was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

The service was very good;
The service was very good; the food okay. I had a thali and so the variety was good, but a few of the dishes were mediocre and one was pretty good. I'd probably try it one more time. It is hard to find great Indian restaurants and again the service was excellent.

This was quite a pleasant surprise. The dining room was very nicely laid out to provide for traffic and still allow a sense of intimacy. It was very clean and modern. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. All of the spices and seasonings were authentic and delicious. The tandoori platter is perfection. My new favorite!
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience having lunch from the menu.

As always, the food was great
As always, the food was great and the service was fantastic. I go eat at Aditi three or four times a month and it is consistently good. The service is always outstanding. I definitely recommend it to friends.

Great Indian Food
You will enjoy this place. It is yummy! And they even had a great Indian beer that my husband and I shared. Enjoy!

Amazing food in an unlikely place
I can not say enough about the wonderful flavors, aromas and sights of the Indian food here. I have been searching for good Indian food in the Alexandria area since Bombay Curry closed and I think I have found it. Curries were delicious, naan was light, the black lentils had a nice kick which was cooled by the raita. Portions were generous and the service was attentive. Highly recommend. Better make a reservation, the place is small. Parking is the only drawback, can be hard on a Fri night to find a spot.

I love this place
I think this place great for a private dates. Or 1 or 2 families at a time. The food has never dissapointed me. It is always of exceptional quality. The waiters are awesome very friendly. Every time I come in there they remember me. Even when it had been more than a year since I had been there! The ambiance is very nice might I add.

We'll Be Back!
Best Indian Restaurant in Alexandria! From the first time we ate there, we were hooked. The food is outstanding and the wait staff are so friendly and helpful with recommendations. Must give it a try!

Great Quality Option
Great eatery adding to the diversity of better neighborhood dining options in my area.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
I'll keep coming back
This was my fifth or sixth time dining at Aditi. It is consistently good. I wish the entrees included some of the sides like yogurt and sour pickle.
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, even better service
I came here with some coworkers for lunch and it was awesome. We had the lunch buffet which was very good. The waitstaff was amazing though. They were super attentive for a buffet. Most places would just leave you alone and let you have at it. But these guys were so nice and cordial. I look forward to coming back here again.
5/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Chicken Vindaloo and Lamb Biryiani were both fantastic. We'll definitely come back.
5/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of our favorites
This is - we think - the 7th time we've been to Aditi in the last 8 months. They have proven to be the most consistent place we know, and we have trouble staying away. We get cravings for their take on Makhani and Samosas, love their Korma and Vindaloo - the latter of which is indeed very spicy - and of all the things we've tried on their menu, we haven't yet found anything that hasn't been delicious and satisfying. Their rice is delicately seasoned, and their Naan is fresh and perfect for wiping up all the leftover sauces and other bits. We recommend the Cucumber Raita as a side with most entrees. If you have room for dessert, the Gulab Jamun is wonderful. Their service has been prompt, and hospitable. We always feel welcome.

Couldn't be happier
Went with a few friends, and had outstanding service, great food, well made drinks. We were all happy w everything. I'll be back!

Reliable and very tasty
Second time to Aditi. Long drive from northeast DC but well worth it because the menu is varied and the food exceptionally well prepared. Service is attentive, accomodating, professional. This is the best Indian restaurant in the area, without the glitz of some of the DC places.

Great Indian Restaurant!
The food was great and the staff was all very nice. I loved the Peshwari Naan with nuts and fruits. It had the best ambiance of any other Indian restaurant I've been to.

Favorite Indian restaurant
Aditi moved to the top of our favorite Indian restaurants list the first time we ate there. That was about three months and six meals ago and the food and service has not waivered. The wait staff always recognizes us and are very friendly. For us, it is conveniently located in the Kingstown Center too.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, good find
Food was great. I particularly liked the Mango Chicken, which I have never had before. My only complaint, and it's a mild one, is that the music was a bit too loud.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
In a heartbeat
Great place, reg customers. Always friendly. Definitely worth a visit.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining at Aditi and we hoped to find a decent Indian restaurant. Instead we found an amazing Indian restaurant and we didn't have to go downtown! The food was delicious (yes, some dishes were spicy, but we expected that with good, authentic Indian food). The servers were very attentive and really seemed to care if we were happy with our food. There are so many choices on the menu - we can't wait to go back and try more dishes. And to top it off, the prices are very reasonable (most entrees are $12-$16 - My son got the lamb chop special which was $24.99 but it was huge and well worth the price).

Rack of Lamp Special was Excellent!
My wife had the rack of lamb and it was excellent. The spinach appetizer was also very good. I highly recommend Aditi for those looking for a wide selection of Indian dishes.

Great food, moderate service
I took my wife here because she loves spicy food and a co-worker recommended me to this restaurant. Its in a perfect location if you'd like to add shopping or movies to your night. The food was excellent. Since the venue is cozy, a large amount of people puts added work onto the staff so i recommend going on a night when its not too busy. The water had either 4 melted down ice cubes floating atop or no ice at all. Me and my wife looked at the other tables and they had the same deal. I would think spicy indian food would merit a glass of water packed with ice. I also asked my server for some beer which i never got. Overall its cozy and quaint, but if there's too many people don't expect good service.

The food is always good at Aditi!
The kitchen at Aditi keeps me coming back for more. The staff is friendly and helpful, though sometimes when things are busy they can get distracted. A word of warning, the food us properly spiced, so hot dishes are just that, hot! Some if the dishes you wouldn't expect to be hot, like the saga, are also zippy. Ask first, they will make adjustments for you, though I love it spicy!!

Good Food & Great Service
Great menu with lots of options. They were happy to adjust my masala tikki paneer from their normal to spicy. Our server was super friendly and personable. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner for two under $50.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
Loved all the food choices we got, the nan and the chicken vindaloo and the lamb (meekah I think?) . Went for a group date and shared everything, had lots of leftovers. Portions are big so maybe don't order 4 choices for 4 people, we could not even finish it! Make sure to get spicy options too, very good.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique Indian Menu
Great place to have in a sea of chain restaurants. Have some great Indian dishes not found on your typical Indian restaurant menu. And the staff is incredibly friendly.

Always love coming here. Everything is great about it!

A local treasure
Tucked into a strip mall the restaurant was a surprise! The food was wonderful, each of us ordered a different dish and then enjoyed sharing them. Everyone was suitably impressed with all three courses. The restaurant, while reasonably busy, enabled us to have quiet conversations and enjoy the experience. The wait staff was helpful and efficient. Can't wait to go back.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Service
Everything we have ever ordered here has been excellent. The buffet is great since you get to try all different types of food and of course all of it is great. The restaurant is decorated well and has a nice set up. The staff is very attentive. We really enjoy eating here whenever we go and you will never leave hungry. The portion sizes are good.

Unprecedented Gustatory Experience
I took my sister to dinner at Aditi for her birthday. We were both blown away by the exotic flavors of the food. The herbs and spices and other ingredients used for Indian cooking were combined to produce flavors uncommonly pleasant. The drinks were tasty and not "watered down." The service was also superlative. Our server actually remembered me from several months ago when I brought two blond friends to dinner there. (Maybe it was the blonds!) We ordered so much food that he finally drafted another server to move the table next to us adjacent to our table to accommodate all the dishes. Truly Aditi is sell managed and aims for excellence.

What a find !
Aditi is such a find in that it has great Indian food, wonderful service and everybody there is so welcoming. We love it!

good local eat, good location
Good buffet at a reasonable price. Good service. I have been here several times. Seems to get busy now. Not too hot or spicy. Helps to make reservation.

We are always greeted and welcomed wonderfully at Aditi Kingstowne. We love going there!
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to the Aditi brunch for the second time. First of all, it's one of the few restaurants that offers brunch buffet Saturday AND Sunday, and for the very reasonable price of $15. The first time I would have given the food five stars; this second time the food didn't seem quite as flavorful, but it was still very delicious. Restaurant staff is very attentive and the ambience is relaxed and quiet.
