Diner Reviews
  • "I ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, but got Paneer instead. As soon as I pointed out the issue, they went to fix it, but it was still kind of awkward to sit and stare at my friends eating. We were disappointed with the Pakora Platter we ordered. It was very greasy and didn't seem very traditional. The other food was pretty good, but I wouldn't qualify it as outstanding. They were considerate when I asked for no cilantro, which was very much appreciated."

  • "Consistently good Indian food in a very nice atmosphere. We are slowly making our way through the menu offerings and have found all the items we've tried so far to be delicious."

  • "This is a great restaurant with a large menu and lots of options. The staff is very friendly and the food is fantastic. The food did take a little longer than expected, but not too long. The setting looks very modern with good lighting, great decorations, and a low noise level."

  • "This was our first time at Turmeric. It had been recommended by Indian friends from DC who venture out to the wilds of Vienna for good Indian food. Now we understand why, and we will be regular patrons. Each of us had a thali plate, including one vegetarian, so that we could sample several items. Each was delicious. Turmeric's chef knows sauces and flavors and uses them in ways that don't smother the taste of the underlying meat or vegetable. And the space is quiet, making it easy for our table to chat. Great food and good conversation - what could be better?"

  • "This is our neighborhood go-to place, ever since we moved here back in 2008 when the restaurant was called Aditi Bistro. The food is consistently good and the ambience terrific. Try the eggplant appetizer (Imli Baingan), Rogan Josh and the fish/shrimp curries. Their pepper chicken is excellent as well. I can't think of any dish that I didn't like. Love the Kerala influence on their menu."

  • "Our first time at this restaurant to have Sunday lunch at 12:30 and discuss the book, "Interpreter of Maladies." Only four of us came and all did the lunch buffet. The food tasted okay, but not great, and was only luke-warm. The service was spotty. We ordered some tea as soon as we sat down. The waiter asked if we wanted cardamon tea. We said sure, why not. The cup was small, so we ordered another half-way through the lunch. I was shocked when the bill came and I saw that the cups of tea had cost $24. One of my friends paid the bill with her Chase credit card, but the waiter forgot to return it to her when he brought the receipt. We had to drive back to the restaurant Sunday night during the Super Bowl to retrieve her credit card."

  • "Indian cuisine is my favorite. I've eaten at many different restaurants around the Metropolitan area. However, I searched in Vienna and found Turmeric. What turned into a try, ended up being a great find. My only constructive comment would be the delay in getting our check. Other than that, I will definitely return. And bring others."

  • "We had attentive service throughout. We enjoyed a very moist chicken tikka, tasty but not overbearing chicken korma, and a spicy lamb biryani. We enjoy Indian foods, but not to the extent that we seek it often. This restaurant really provides a very good menu with tasty options for everyone. Their appeal is in their ability to deliver outstanding dishes at very moderate prices, and they are always helpful and accommodating, making it a pleasure to dine in their lovely atmosphere. I heartily recommend you give them a try. I don't think you will be a bit disappointed. It's more likely you will look forward to dining once again at this little gem!"

  • "Seriously the worst service I've had in years. Dinner took almost 3 hours, with 50 minutes of that waiting to get a check, and the first 30 minutes waiting to get a drink. There were 3 other tables occupied. Really frustrating experience. Will never return."

  • "We wanted somewhere different that would cater to all the family from children to grandparents, turmeric delivered. Great tastings food with friendly service and even friendlier price, a great mix."

  • "This is a great place to get together with friends. The food is delicious and was perfectly seasoned for all -- spicy for some, not so for those of us who wanted mild. The ambiance was terrific and was perfect for friends to get together and catch up. We will definitely be going back. Also, the wine was delicious and generous."

  • "I've eaten at Tumeric twice in the last month and plan to go again next week, because of the superb food, ambiance, and accessibility. I've never been a huge fan of Indian food, but the fare here is superb, and the presentation is outstanding. Coupled with this, the décor of the restaurant and the professionalism of the staff are top notch. This is a very unusual Indian restaurant and is not to be missed!"

  • "I've wanted to try Indian food for a while, so this was my birthday choice. The restaurant made a good first impression. The lighting was subtle and the seating area clean, inviting, and comfortable. The wait staff greeted us warmly, giving us the right amount of attention all evening, helpfully answering questions and making suggestions. Every dish was perfectly timed, perfectly seasoned, perfectly portioned. We ordered the eggplant and lamb appetizers, two curries and a kebob for dinner, and they brought out a rice pudding (more like a rich cake) complete with the embarrassing Happy Birthday song. If you already like Indian food, this place is excellent. If you're curious about Indian food, this is an excellent place to start."

  • "If you are headed to Jammin Java for music, stop at Tumeric before or after. The food is good and the service great."

  • "This was my second visit to Turmeric. We ordered a bunch of appetizers (get the eggplant!) and enjoyed our various main courses. Two complaints: Two of us split a platter that was supposed to come out with naan, and even after reminding the waiter, he never brought it out. We had plenty of food with the appetizers so I suppose it was for the best but the principle of it remains. Also our gulab jamun dessert was served cold, and in my experience is always served hot - so we had to ask them to microwave them for us."

  • "Better than the Indian food we have been driving miles away to consume. May be the best samosas I've ever had. I couldn't believe we just walked in - why isn't this the busiest restaurant in vienna?"
