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

Not a fan of Indian food until I ate here 5 years ago. Great lamb, eggplant and chicken dishes prepared as spicey as you like. Great service and reasonable prices. A local favorite so stay away so it doesn't get to crowded. Exceptional lunch bufet.

Stumbled across Dishes of India by accident one afternoon, as we both fancied some Indian food. We turned up to a strip mall and wondered what we'd let ourselves in for, but then we had the food and it was magnificent. That was almost three years ago, and we haven't looked back. The chicken is so tender, I don't think... More

Awesome food, and I love Indian food. I found this years ago because it is close to home and I tried it out of laziness, but the downstairs location and its humble decor belie that great food they serve. Any friends I have that try it also love it and being close, it is a simple way to feed guests,... More

Friends, readers-- let not the strip-mall setting fool you! I have found the best Indian food in MD/VA and it lies below a Belle View shopping center! My lady and I moved to Alexandria a few weeks ago, and in our quest for delicious Indian food (it's an addiction... we're ok with it), we took TripAdvisor's advice and stopped in... More
