Very Good Indian Food

Excellent Indian fare in a family restaurant that has been serving the Mount Vernon area for a number of years. The menu is expansive in order to meet the demands of a variety of tastes. Tonight, it was Murg Tikka Tandoori served with basalmic rice and Keema Naan (a special version of the... read more

Service was fast and very polite, and the food was above my expectations. My fiancee and I decided to visit this restaurant to try something neither of us have tried before, and we were pleasantly surprised.

Dishes of India is easily the best Indian food in Alexandria, and possibly in Northern Virginia. We grabbed dinner there (a friend suggested it) and it was exquisite! The atmosphere was quiet and authentic. The food was phenomenal and the service was top-notch. I really enjoy good Indian food and this one has me wanting more--will have to swing by... More

Found this small restaurant on Trip Advisor during a recent business trip. It’s down a flight of stairs from street level (no wheelchair access) in a small strip mall just off of Ft Hunt Road in Alexandria. The service was excellent and the interior is nicely appointed with a relaxing atmosphere. Dress code is casual and they have a full... More

I have eaten at this restraunt many times and it the closest to being in India, where I have been numerous time. The food is outstanding, as good if not better that Indian food in India. The staff is some of the best I have had in any restraunt in many years.

I'm far from an Indian food expert but have been to a few Indian restaurants including a couple in London where supposedly the best ones are located. I found Dishes of India to be every bit as good and some even better than others I've tried. Their service was friendly and very helpful in explaining unfamiliar dishes and even suggesting... More

I've always been a big fan of Indian food - even in places where it winds up being spicy mush. Fortunately, about 9 years ago we found this gem of a restaurant in a little strip mall near our house and have enjoyed it continuously ever since. We probably get food here at least once a month and the subtlety... More

I had a taste for Indian so I used my TripAdvisor to find what was close. I can honestly say I've had Indian but not like this. Off the chain great. The menu set me back because the normal description of Indian was totally different. I had to ask for assistance to figure out what I wanted, but the nice... More

Our second and third visits came within a couple of days of each other during our most recent stay in Alexandria and DC. My wife and I are big fans of Indian cuisine and this hidden away restaurant was a great find for us. Excellent dishes, appetizers and attentive staff make this a perfect dining experience. We are looking forward... More

You have to know this restaurant is here to find it - tucked into a strip mall a few miles south of Old Town Alexandria, the Dishes of India has friendly/welcoming service, a diverse and comprehensive menu, generous portions and reasonable prices. We have dined there numerous times and every dish ordered is delicious. Good food, prepared and served well.... More
