Fresh and delicious Indian food! Our first visit was for lunch on Saturday. We had the cauliflower in a spicy tomato sauce (Lasooni ghobi) for appetizer followed by the lunch special, which includes either a salad or soup, any entree from the menu, and dessert. We tried the palak paneer and chicken in mango sauce. Both came with rice, naan, and a side of Mattar paneer. You can choose your spice level so we asked for medium hot. Everything was delicious - spicy but not too hot and good portion sizes for lunch- not too large. We each received a small dish of rice pudding with almonds for dessert. I was quite full by then, so I was glad it was just a small taste. It is obvious that the food is made with fresh ingredients and attention to detail. The service was excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Will definitely return for dinner!

Friendly, attentive staff. Generous portions and good prices. The naan and kachumber salad were delicious, but the aloo gobi was for me out of balance. Interior of restaurant not inspiring, and they had a television on that could be heard across the restaurant.

Good food (quality and quantity) with friendly and attentive service. Unfortunately the restaurant was empty -deserted - and this really impacted on the atmosphere. If you're a DMV resident this is not worth travelling to. There is better (although more expensive) options close by for a curry. If you're staying in the Dupont area and want a curry then take a glance in the window: if it looks busy and the ambience is better then I can commend the food and service.
