The Dishes of India is located in Alexandria but not in Old Town. The drive is about 3-4 miles down Richmond Hwy in a strip mall. The entrance is very hidden and the front exterior not flashy but rather hard to spot; amble parking. When you walk in you are in for a surprise; you are surrounded by glass walls... More

This is the best Indian food in Alexandria VA. Sure it is in a strip mall next to a Subway, but the food is delicious. The spices are a perfect blend of heat and flavor. The service cannot be beat. I always order to go and the wait staff are friendly and kind. I order the vegetarian rice dishes and... More

We have been eating here ever since it opened, and have never had a bad meal, eating everything from salmon to beef to lamb to vegetarian, done tandoori or with a sauce, and still go once or twice a month; with everything well prepared, and a variety of options, the food never gets stale

Downstairs in a small mall, but worth the trip. My teenage kids love the buffet. Excellent food ready when you arrive and great service. Live nearby and this offers a great alternative to other fast dining choices. The buffet offers great chicken and sometimes shrimp that we all enjoy.

Okay, this Indian restaurant is in a strip mall. Okay, it's not only in a strip mall but it is down a level from the Chinese restaurant along the sidewalk.Wait. Wait. Come back. Try it. Honestly. This is a very nice place, even a little upscale, and the food is terrific! I've eaten here 4 or 5 times, always for... More

We usually go to out standard Raaga restaurant on route 7, which has a great buffet in a bright airy room. But we thought we would try Dishes of India bars on Trip Advisor. We soon realized we had been here before, maybe 10 years ago, you must descend to a lower level through mirror steps lines with mirrors, and... More

I get takeout from here almost every weekend. I love most of their dishes, especially any of the Korma dishes. They also have a great buffet for lunch that offers a wide variety of meal choices. This most recent trip I had the chicken biryani and it was fantastic. Highly recommend this for anyone who likes Indian.

I have lived in the Fort Hunt area all of my life and have frequented the Belle View Shopping Center numerous times. How surprised was I when I learned that this little Indian treasure was hidden in the basement of a Subway. I had actually seen this place a number of times before, but never thought much of it. When... More
