Le Mirch Ratings and Reviews
I found Le Mirch listed as one of the top Indian food spots in DC, and I'm glad I stopped in. While their cocktail list speaks for itself, the food has a voice just as loud. I stuck with the jackfruit curry dish, but turned up the spicyness, and it couldn't have been better. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for quality Indian food; bear in mind that the restaurant's atmosphere is a bit nuanced-- French influence coupled with more traditional Indian dining.
Good food. Just don't expect a fine dining type of place as the website pictures might have suggested. The food was very good, the portion was very generous and the price was very reasonable. Perfect for a no-frills type friends-get-together meal. Not too fancy, not too shabby.
A truly excellent Indian restaurant with just a touch of French fusion. The drinks are a delight, but the inventive and delicious dishes are the reason for choosing this hidden gem. Service is attentive and friendly, too. The spinach appetizer, momos, Rogan Josh, and Tandoori dishes are all superb.
We had a wonderful experience at Le Mirch. The food was delicious. Everyone in the group enjoyed the dishes that we ordered. We greatly appreciated the advice shared by our wonderful server who made excellent recommendations at every turn. We will definitely return to Le Mirch soon!
A friend and I had an enjoyable meal at Le Mirch. We have both logged a lot of years in South Asia and like South Asian food that has not been dumbed down for Western palates. We made this clear to our server. The momos and mango-glazed wings were both good. The Mirch Shank was excellent as well. The one disappointment was the chicken maharaja which was bland and tasted exactly like what we didn’t want—South Asian food dumbed down for Western palates. Nice selection of beers.
Le Mirch offered a reasonable range of Indian cuisine. I often dine at Indian restaurants and found the food to be tasty but non-traditional. The black dal was drowned in a reddish sauce that was not to my liking. My goat curry, however, was very pleasant. My wife's chicken dish was unexceptional. The service was friendly.
I don't think I would go back but that is only because I have had far better Indian meals elsewhere.
Before LeMirch, this place had Polo Club - an Indian Restaurant. Le Mirch has renovated the place and made it brigther and more inviting.
Overall our experience was just ok. The cocktail - A ginger/vodka with some other stuff. Both my friend and I thought it tasted like sugar water with vodka - no flavor.
For starters we had Chowpatty and Masala Crab. Chowpatty was ok, Masala Crab was really good.
For Entree, we had Maharaja Chicken and Jackfruit vegetable. Chicken Maharaj wasn't bad. The curry was good; my friend thought the chicken was dry but not anymore than Chicken Kabobs in other Indian Restaurants.
Jackfruit vegetable was nothing special. I wouldn't order it again.
My wife and I both enjoyed the food at Le Mirch. Their Les Epinards appetizer, crispy-fried spinach/dates/almonds/yoghurt/chili/cilantro, is quite tasty, and the portion was adequate for the two of us. My wife had a vegan chick-pea dish that was a bit spicier than she likes, but good. I had a butter chicken-like dish that was also quite good. Prices were reasonable. The waiter was prompt, polite, and attentive. My wife didn't like the bar-like atmosphere--our table was across from the bar. I noticed some areas that could use a professional paint job, and a couple of places cried out for paint--any paint at all. The paper towel dispenser in the single restroom wasn't working, and the restroom itself wasn't exactly sparkling clean.
I had a friend in town who wanted Indian food so we tried out Le Mirch, and I am so glad we did. There was a 1/2 off all wine special so we took advantage and selected a bottle from their extensive selection. The appetizers were full of Indian flavors but not the typical items you see at most Indian restaurants. We ordered curries for dinner with Naan and all was delicious. I would definately recommend this place to anyone in the mood for Indian but not necessary in the mood for your average Indian fare.
We were a group of four: three adults and one teenager, who was less keen on the spicy food. As a whole, if you like good food, it's a great place. The dishes were excellent, rich in tastes, beautiful and fun for us adults.
The teenager was less keen on the food.
The service was very good, and as we had a quiet table upstairs, we could talk quietly without having to speak up.
Disclaimer: I'm not the most adventurous or cultured when it comes to ethnic dining. But I really enjoyed the Chicken Maharaja, which was basically a more interesting butter chicken. I went with 2 girlfriends, but there were several groups and a few dates there. They don't play music upstairs, which was fine, but we could hear everyone's conversations. As I'm sure they heard ours...
