This was my first time there and the experience was amazing!!! Food was really delicious. Our server made several recommendations and were really good. Their service is excellent and prompt. Will definitely be going there again. It’s bit expensive but definitely worth it.

We had such a great experience at London Curry House! We had been many many years ago and it was just ok, but the new owners the last couple years have clearly taken the concept in an awesome direction. The food was outstanding, better than any Indian food I’ve had in DC from the likes of Bombay Club and co. The service was friendly and attentive and the cocktails were sooo delicious! Definitely going back for more very soon!!!

I had a wonderful very long lunch with an old friend from college. We were attentively served and looked after, but we’re also left alone so that we didn’t feel rushed or unwelcome. The food was amazing. Good value large portions. It was quiet the afternoon we were there but I would definitely put this on my list of places to go to again.

We've been looking for a place that does a good curry and finally, we found one.

London Curry House is quiet, convenient and situated in a lovely location. The park views out fo the window are great.

All the staff were kind, helpful and attentive. The food is absolutely delicious and we cannot wait to return.

Everything was delightful. From the refreshing and lively Juliet cocktail to the kale chaat to the main course. It was a lovey dinner for Valentine’s Day and I have no doubt it would be just as lovely any day. I look forward to coming back.

Ever since new ownership/management took over, I've been very impressed with LCH every time I come. Excellent and attentive service, delicious food (that's not too heavy/spicy), and usually a small free appetizer that's the chef's daily creation!

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had, top marks. Great food recommendations, they weren’t very busy for a weekday and he was very attentive even bringing us 3 different complimentary dishes to try from the chef. Food was well prepared and timely.

Good experience overall that goes beyond standard Indian food offerings. Staff is very helpful and accommodating. Large curry & tandoori options for two. Worth it just to see the actual London phone booth inside.

Some would call us pretty experienced with Indian food (India, London, Singapore, Rasika in Washington DC). Based on our first (albeit somewhat limited) experience with LCH, it seems like the real deal. We had the Kale Chat app, the scallop app and the Lamb Rogan Josh curry. The kale chat and lamb curry were pretty darn close to perfect.
Both were distinctly and precisely spiced. The lamb in the curry was moist, flavorful and of generous portion. And as nearly all reviewers point out, the service was a big plus - friendly and professional. Well done!!

My boyfriend and I came here for date night and absolutely loved it. The restaurant is in a cute little area and parking was really easy even on a Saturday night. Since I’d made a reservation, they reserved a table for us by the window and we got a complimentary appetizer and dessert on the house! The food was delicious and a much better price than I was expecting. My boyfriend and I split the Manhattan which was also delicious and their most popular drink. The noise level wasn’t too loud and the ambiance was nice and romantic. Our servers were very attentive and and made sure everything was as we wanted. I will definitely come back to London Curry House!

Curry was surprisingly good. The first bite of each different curry shocked me. Coming from more generic/cheap curries, I was blown away by the depth of flavor achieved at this restaurant. Definitely will be coming back soon.

Not extremely expensive but definitely a once in a few week place. Smallish portions for price but everything oozes with quality ingredients and attention to detail.

We were offered complimentary glasses of rosé with our meal by staff. Very pleasant overall.
