Welcome to Jaipur, a Royal Indian Cuisine. Known as the Pink City, Jaipur is one of the jewels of Rajasthan, a northern Indian province west of New Delhi. The cuisine we present is rooted in the rich heritage of India it is a combination of subtle tastes where the flavors are as varied as India’s climate and as exotic as India's people. Fragrant, pungent and warm spices from all over India are delicately blended to create the dishes. The blending and preparation of spices is a centuries-old craft and indispensable to Indian cuisine. The decor includes rows of beads adorned with brilliantly colored birds and a contingent of elaborately dressed puppets, stunning paintings by Indian Artists and the interior design in accordance with the principles of Rajisthans Royal Palace.
Our Dishes are authentically prepared in our restaurant, just as we would in our own home. Enjoy our hospitality, and consider our home yours!

We came to Jaipur on Mother's Day. Despite having a reservation, we had to wait half an hour before our table was ready. This is an anomaly - we have been to Jaipur many times before and have never had to wait until now. The food is always good. I wholeheartedly recommend Jaipur, with the caveat that if it's a holiday, expect to wait a while.

There are many Indian restaurants in northern Virginia and we have been to many of them. We consider Jaipur the best and our experience this past week did nothing to change our mind. Service is friendly and punctual, the ambience is excellent and you can converse easily even if Jaipur has a crowd. Finally, the food is superb and is the closest in terms of taste to the Indian cuisine we experienced while in India. Our only minor complaint is that the Jaipur’s chefs are reserved in the way they add spice to their dishes. We like a bit more spice. But we’ll be back many more times.

Excellent variety of chicken, lamb, and vegetarian dishes, which can be adjusted to your preferences for spiciness. On weekend nights, reservations are a good idea. Service is quick and friendly, portions are large enough to share and even have leftovers. We paid $240 (including tip) for dinner for 6 people, which included a drink or two for each person and an extra order of butter chicken to go.

We usually go to Jaipur for buffet. The variety of choices ensures everyone finds something they like. This is the first time in a few months that we went for dinner. The menu has a greater variety of choices in comparison to other restaurants and the food was fabulous.

This is a great place for authentic Indian food. The service standard are also very good and the food itself is delicious. True to it's name, the ambience reminds one of India's pink city Jaipur. Great place for special occasions as well as regular dining alike.

Food was not piping hot as it should be for Indian food; I had to send my dish back to be re-heated.
After the dinner, my clothes were stinking of spices. Obviously there is a problem with the kitchen airflow not being separate. Now I have get my jacket and clothes to be sent for dry cleaning. This should not happen and I am not happy.

Food was good. However service was awful. Very slow and felt like we were ignored. In a side room with intermittent appearances by the waiter. When we got up to leave and went to the counter to pay - they apologized and said that they were busy on Saturdays ( restaurant was half full at this time???)

Having eaten at better Indian restaurants across the US, we were blown away by the quality and variety of cuisine at Royal Jaipur. Presentation and service were superb. For aficionados of subcontinent cuisine, Royal Jaipur is terrific and well-worth the drive.

We've been coming here for years. Service is warm and friendly, and the food is wonderful.
We love Indian food, and this is the only restaurant we go to when we crave it. They always treat us
like special guests, remember our name and 'special' table, and even what our 'usual' foods and drinks are.
Jaipur is the best!

Great place to celebrate a birthday on a weeknight; the food was great and the service was fantastic—attentive but both servers went out of their way not to interrupt our conversation. And the restaurant was quiet enough that we could actually HAVE a conversation! A splendid experience, we’ll definitely return.

Our future sister-in-law is a vegetarian who loves Indian food. She was dying to take us out and order our meal for us, so we met at Jaipur. This was awesome because we tried a few dishes that we'd never tasted before, including the Paneer Tikka and the Shrimp Biryani. Both cuisine and service were amazing as always and we had so much fun!

Jaipur is our favorite restaurant, and we go there often. The food, the service, and the ambiance, all make for a lovely experience. We've brought family and friends, and everyone has remarked how much they enjoyed everything about it. If you're a repeat customer, they remember what you enjoyed last time, and even where you sat. The staff aim to please in every way possible, and it's a pleasure to be their guest. We couldn't recommend Jaipur more highly.

My wife and I returned from a week in Central California, and were craving DC comfort food...next thing we know, we're walking into Jaipur, being warmly greeted (as always) and enjoying our favorite "go-to" dinner: Murgh Tikka and Navrattan Korma with a side of Raita. She and I swear that this time it was even tastier than usual...we were in Indian food Nirvana, and felt happy to be back home despite the cold weather! Thank you Jaipur, we love you. Matt & Teresa :)
