    This was our 5th time or so visiting and never been disappointed before but this was in simple terms pathetic. Food was average, service was horrendous. The waiters have become extremely rude when you ask questions and some of them don’t even see you eye to eye. It was a crowded Saturday evening and looks like they got overwhelmed. An example, rava dosai took 35 minutes to arrive and was told that was the normal. After waiting had to cancel the last item as we did not have a choice and had to head home for 100 miles. I hope they get better for their name sake and continue to provide quality and treat customers as valuable. Thanks for listening.

    I love A2B.But wanted to point out that bonda i ordered was burnt while frying and no sambar accompanied it. Little disappointed. Prefer to order through a person than the phone app.

    Usually my go to place but the food was lackluster. Chutneys (dips) were diluted with no flavor, sambhar was cold, and I didn’t get the appetizer until my meal was over (after 1 hour). Dosa was over cooked with no flavor.

    The food was great, except one particular item which is chili parotta. I realized that it was not the right place to celebrate birthdays. I was told that they will take care of lighting the candles and bring the cake to the table as long as I give the cake earlier at the front desk but that did not happen and my plan was totally messed up when I was asked to light the candles and take the cake to the table by myself. I realized that the communication would have been better to have a pleasant birthday celebration. Other than that, the people were friendly and the birthday song was played when my friend was ready to blow the candles. That was such a sweet gesture that we all enjoyed. I already recommended the place to my friends for the food and looking forward to try other items.

    I will give F for service. We were a group of 16 people. I ordered mixed vegetable pakoras and what we got was onion pakoras which came 40 minutes after the order. No one came to take the order for the main course until we fetched someone to come over. Their order on phone is ridiculously slow especially for big gatherings. We were all eating at different times. Some were served right away while others had to wait for 45 minutes. It was chaotic and unorganized to say the least. They had included 18% gratuity to the bill without informing me and the waiter asked if we were interested in adding additional tip. The staff is not friendly and courteous at all. Literally have to run after them to get their attention. I would not recommend this place for big groups. Their service for small groups is tolerable.

    I think this is the best I have seen with respect to service, ambience and food. Love the huge menu choice, but would recommend warning the customer if their particular order would take longer than usual (as happened to our item that was ordered as the main meal). But very much appreciate that it was not charged to us. Overall, great job A2B. Keep up the quality of food and we will always love to come back!

    The pictures did not match the food, resulting in our over-ordering. The sambar and the chutneys could be more tasty -- they were rather bland.

    Though we had a reservation, we had a 45 minute wait while other larger groups who walked in after us were seated. Appetizers arrived last. The food was mediocre. No ambiance, very loud and tables are too close together.

    They did not honour the reservation Manager was gone for some catering job and on-site manager was just too green to know how to handle customers. Their Excuse was - we know you had reservation but then sometimes people don’t show up so did not keep a table for you. We even offered them help to move a table to accommodate our party of 9. Answer was - our waiters get confused as our entire system gets messed up. The only options they had was split your family on two tables separated in a way that they can’t even talk or sit outside in sweltering heat. So even when we had heard good reviews about the food, making reservation 2 weeks in advanced abs showing up on time, we ended up leaving without eating.

    Went here for Mother’s Day, was fairly packed but socially distanced. Food was good, the only problem is they forgot the get the masala for the dosa and the Sambar was cold and did not taste like before (felt like it was waters down). We told them the sambar was cold, and they were like OH, we actually advised them to take them back and at least put it in the microwave and give. They took it back and bought back the same cups and it was only lukewarm. Best time I guess to go is when it’s not a holiday or weekday when they are not sooo busy. I don’t think they were equipped to handle a crowd and so the food lacked in taste.

    Excellent food! The service could be better though as we got our food from 1st person until 6th person with 30 minutes of difference. Some people were already done with their food when the last person's food arrived. This put a dent in my overall rating.

    Service is very poor and for the amount of money paying for the food they are hesitant to provide extra chutney and the sides with out which the main dish can't be eaten. Pleasee provide it without making the customers asking for it again and again and waiting for ever.

    The service is excellent . We have been to this place 3-4 times with different family members since the pandemic started. Our first experience was great so we returned;however, the issue is the serving of cold food, especially the dosa. They took it back; we did not receive the paper dosa that we ordered by regular dosa. We were kind of bummed, but oh well. We will return, but start with we need our food served extra hot (temperature).

    We have been to A2B in Herndon a few times since it has opened. We feel the south indian sidedishes like sambar, chutney, kurma have gotten bland. Main dishes like dosai, fried rice, poori, Gobi 65 were great.

    We love this place! The food is top notch and reminds me of the A2B locations I’ve been to in India. The sambar vada is always amazing and you can’t go wrong with any kind of dosa. The madras filter coffee is a perfect finisher to any meal as well. They’ve done a great job with outdoor seating during these times of COVID, putting up tents in the back parking lot and even adding decor. I’d come back every weekend if I didn’t live 80 minutes away, though we do make it out every few months anyways!

    We came with 4 kids and we requested to get the kids food first and it was kind of them to be prompt. The kids loved the ghee roast with Sambhar chutney and positive. They loved the Sambhar . Then they ordered for paper roast . They loved it too. My husband ordered for Chole batura unfortunately it was not that good. The batura was more like a dead balloon. I ordered latcha parotta and navarathna korma. Navarathna korma was good but expected to see some authenticity but it was more of a simplified version of the navarathna korma . Vadacurry was not as expected . Chilly parotta was good . Gobi 65 and chilli corn was good. Kids loved the food happy and satisfied . Indoor dining is available and outdoor dining is also available. Social distancing is well maintained and all staffs were wearing mask and social distancing was maintained. No paper menus were provided . U need to scan a a code on the table and can view the menu on your phones . Each restaurant had its own speciality and I think they are good at dosas

    Tiffins are the best here. Especially pongal. The parottas with korma are a delight. Paneer pulao with cauliflower 65 would be a great choice.
