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... read 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

I eat here about once a month. It's equally convenient coming from Mount Vernon Beacon Hill or Old Town sections of Alexandria. The quality is consistently good and the service is consistently great. Perhaps the appeal to so many locals is the adjustment made to make Indian food taste better to the American pallet, but I agree with some other... More

Simply Great Indian food. Hidden away in a strip mall in what seems like once was a storage cellar this restaurant is top notch service and quality food. Great take out as well. No need to drive to DC or Bethesda for Indian this place is simply one of the top in the area.

I love Dishes of India - It's a great place to dine in or carry out. The food is really great. It's windowless (it's below ground) and there isn't much to the decor. You certainly go there for the food, which is reason enough.

You'd never expect to find such a nice Indian restaurant in the basement of a local shopping center, but here it is. The food is dependably good, ambiance is nice, and the prices are reasonable.

I'm not a fan of Indian food (usually too spicy for me), so when our friends invited us to lunch at Dishes of India last month, I agreed to take one for the team. I ordered the luncheon buffet and was very pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed everything I had. I gave up any pretense that I was familiar with... More
