We love the murg masala and the aloo gobi. Lunch buffet is a great value. Plan ahead on weekends - it gets crowded.

Located well off the beaten path in a strip shopping center, you will enjoy a splendid feat of Indian food. The a la carte menu is excellent, but the lunch buffet may be even better. There is always a fine selection of dishes that aim to please! Go and enjoy!

This Indian restaurant is a little off the beaten path, but there's a reason it has earned a place in the top 10 of hundreds of places to eat in Alexandria.

Went as part of Alexandria restaurant week. My wife doesn't normally like lamb, but whatever they do to it here made it delicious! We'll be back

While visiting Alexandria for some days, we were looking for some Indian take-out food. We ran into Dishes of India by coincidence. The restaurant is located at basement level, so only the entrance was visible at first. Once entered, it appeared a nice place, but not for take-out. We asked the waiter, and it was possible to order from the... More

I really enjoy dining here and enjoying a meal that reminds us of time in India. A diverse menu with many enjoyable options. I love the saffron rice that is available with most meals and the fresh warm naan bread! Very good service as well.

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 traditional bread). Decent wine and beer menu... 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.
