Aditi Kingstown is a neighborhood gem, perfect for pre- and post-movie dining (across from the Regal theaters). The service is wonderful and the food is delicious. Our waiter asked about our preferred heat levels, which is important with Indian food. The menu is large, with something for everyone, including specialty cocktails. It's a pretty little place, with outside tables for good weather and well-spaced tables inside. I also very much appreciate that tables can be reserved on OpenTable. It's our frequent choice for a more upscale dinner on movie nights. (And they have a weekend lunch buffet as well.)

Unfortunately with Covid the restaurant has three sets of customers - Delivery, Pick-Up and in-house dining with minimal staff. The service was attentive but very choppy due to the need to service those other customers. It’s hard to see three tables only and have your meal take 1/2 hour! It is par for our Covid time and Aditi’s food is still so outstanding. I hope someday to return to a full restaurant with great service.

I couldn’t wait any longer for the Butter Chicken, which was great. The Samosas and lamb Rogan Josh were on the spicy side but we hadn’t been there since before Covid. The kitchen turned down the heat on the lamb for us. Lots of food; we took home some of everything, except the delicious Naan. Can’t wait to go back again soon.

Had an 8:45 reservation on Sunday night. When we got there it was closed. I gave it a medium rating but I never got to actually eat there.
I can't blame them totally. Why would there be a reservation on open table if the restaurant isn't open.

Any kitchen can have an off-night, and this might have been one. We're regulars and had a Good Meal, but it was late on a slow Friday night, and the usual high quality wasn't quite there. The Baby Spinach Chaat wasn't as hot and crispy & Tamarindy as we remembered. Some of the breads in our basket were cold, and our entrees came hard on the heels of our appetizers and salads, so we felt a tad rushed. The cheese in my sweetie's Paneer Makhani tasted a little "refrigerator-y". My Lamb Biryani had lotsa lamb and balanced spices, but was merely good, not stellar, as I remembered: I'm a lamb and goat lover, so these flavor memories stick with me. The dessert Rasmalai and Kheer also tasted like they had a few days of age on them, rather than super-fresh. Good value though... when the check arrived and I saw the total, I thunk to myself "Not Bad! Not Bad at all for the full I got and tastes I sampled".

I've always loved the experience and food here--this time they didn't measure up on the service and for some of the food. I made the reservation and arrived 2 minutes before they officially opened at 5:30. No one was rushing around inside to get ready--in fact, those I saw were moving around rather leisurely. It was a freezing cold day and although they could see me standing at the door no one would come to open until after 5:30. The food this time was not as good as in the past--tandoori chicken was very dry. Although the restaurant was far from full, service was slow with a lack of attention at times. Had to summon the waiter to take our order. Water glasses were filled a few times. The check and a continer for leftovers were requested at the same time. Container was provided to self-move the leftover soup and after waiting more than minutes after the container arrived, had to summon the waiter a second time to ask for the check.
