Nice quiet place with good Indian food and nice decor. The best thing about this experience besides the very good food was the level of service which made us feel valued.

We have been meaning to try London Curry House for some time and so glad we finally did! The food and service was incredible and we enjoyed our anniversary immensely. Do yourself a favor and order the barrel aged Manhattan. We are looking forward to our next visit!

This place is awesome and, because of that, we are now regulars. From arrival to departure, the staff takes wonderful care of you. The bartender crafts great drinks and changes his menu based on season (had the barrel aged manhattan - wow). The food is the best Indian around (IMHO). Good sized portions at a good price.

In short, Ambiance is great, service is great, food is great, and drinks are great.

This restaurant continues to delight. The food and service are exceptional, and well beyond the much more pricey options in DC or Old Town. Don’t let the location fool you. This is fine dining in the west end of alexandria. Can’t decide, try the “curry experience” which lets you try 4 different curry dishes. Don’t forget the naan. The wine and beer selections pair well with the spice. There is also plenty of room for large groups and a separate bar area. Try it!

The outstanding reviews my wife and I read prior to visiting the London Curry House were spot on. This restaurant serves excellent food at a very reasonable prices and their service is absolutely outstanding. To top it off the restaurant is in a great location. We went for a nice walk in the park next door after dinner. We highly recommend the London Curry House.

This place is a bit of a hidden gem - hidden because it’s tucked back in Cameron station. But once you get there, it’s fantastic. Great food, cool ambiance, and very attentive service (good drink selection too). We will be back...a lot.

This is an amazing restaurant. Everyone about it is top rate. Service is very attentive. My dinner date requested two things that weren’t on the menu and they got them for her, no problem. We both left feeling so content after such a wonderful dining experience.

My new favorite restaurant ! The Tikka Masala is so yummy! I had to restrain myself from licking the plate! The staff made excellent recommendations for appetizers (the Mo Mo is awesome!). And we had both Dals which were yummy too. I highly recommended eating here!

London Curry House is fine Indian dining. This was our second time, and like the first experience, everything we ordered--starting with cocktails to apps, entrees and desserts--were prepared well and full of flavor. The service is excellent, and ambiance very nice. They are a gem in the neighborhood and we will keep coming back.

Went to London Curry House to celebrate my anniversary with my fiance. Staff asked if it was a special occasion and proceeded to treat us like it was a special occasion for them as well. Excellent service! They were attentive without hovering. The food was outstanding.
Can't say enough about the place. Our anniversary was made better by coming here. Can't wait to go back.

What a gem! Absolutely loved our dinner - a birthday celebration and a delight for all! We enjoyed many appetizers and then had two main courses for three. One, a lamb curry, the kitchen made in an "off menu" variety. Wonderful! And lovely ice cream for dessert with a special birthday treat the kitchen made as a bonus. Service was attentive but not hovering, pleasant and helpful, décor is fun, food wonderful, and the value exceptional. We ate on a weeknight so the restaurant was not very crowded. Really a find, we'll be back!

Best Indian restaurant in the United States. Tastes like British Indian food! Awesome! Worth a one-hour detour through traffic for those of you in DC or Southern Maryland. Good sized portions unlike nouvelle cuisine places like Rasika. Go! You won’t regret it. This is a WOW foodie restaurant.

What a terrific experience!! The food was incredible, with excellent recommendations from the staff who really knew how to find something that hits the spot. The drinks were lovely, and the presentation of the Manhattan was particularly impressive. The ambiance of the space was also lovely, but also small family friendly (they even had special kid spoons for little people!).

Overall I recommend London Curry House unreservedly!!!
