We had the chefs entree samplers thali-one vegetarian and one with meat. It was good authentic Indian food.Nice ambience. A good place to spend the evening.
My family and I were very happy to find the Passage to India. The food was very good and the service was attentive and courteous. Well make it a regular for Indian food.
I love this restaurant, which has some of the best Indian food around. It's ambiance is elegant, everyone there is friendly and polite, and when my friend walked in for the first time (I've been there many times), she said Wow! This place is fantastic!
Delicious garlic naan, saag paneer, rice pudding for dessert. The people are so nice and the food is delicious. They have the best Indian food in the Bethesda area.
The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and noise levels are low. The service was okay, though one of the waiters tried to take food away before we were done. The menu is quite long and I like the concept of having food from different parts of India. The food was rather bland, even the dish I requested to be made spicy. Nice but very mild seekh kabab appetizer, the kosha mangsho ( lamb dish) was good. The onion kulcha was gOod too. The malvani vegetable curry was flavorless with lentils and a piece of carrot and potato— not authentic at all. At this price point, I expect better food.
While I have dined here previously, the flavors of my meal on this occasion seemed to be deeper and more complex without being overpoweringly spicy. I must confess to having eaten the sauce for my chicken tiki masala with a spoon. We also had a gluten free guest with us who was highly satisfied with both her options and her meal.
The best Indian restaurant in Washington! Will visit again!
The ubiquitous chicken tikka was exceptionally good as was the dal.
Passage to India is still enjoyable, but it is getting a little tired and lacks the sparkle it used to have. We were there at the end of a long holiday weekend, and the food seemed less freshly prepared than usual, as though it had been prepared earlier and then sat on a warming tray.
Excellent food and service. Will definitely be going back.
Nice choice for a special occasion, but we felt the services was not up to the prices. The menu offers a nice variety of Indian foods and there were many interesting selections. Everything we ordered was enjoyed. But, as an example, of the persons had no fork at his place setting and after being served had to catch the attention of someone, to ask for a fork. One of the servers spilled water and an ice cube when refilling the water glass, and we had to wait for our waitress to get her to put extra napkins under the area that was wet.
Great variety and tasty food. Planning to come back soon.
Passage to India is our favorite Indian restaurant in Bethesda, MD. We love the flavorful food and the wonderful service they provide for us.
Nice atmosphere, great “chef’s choice” 3-course meal with veggie options.
Had an excellent birthday dinner. freezing out so barely anyone there. Food is very good, service attentive and friendly. Usually groupon or living social available.
