So much love for this place

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.

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

We visited Dishes of India on a Saturday night! As a tourist we didn't know where to go but thank God we found this place through Trip Advisor!Restaurant is very clean and staff are friendly and attentive! We ordered the house soup which tasted really good! The mixed tandoori was delicious! My daughter had some chicken from the kids menu... More

You would hardly find this unassuming lower-level restaurant in Belle View shopping center, much less expect that it has such excellent, budget-friendly Indian food and pleasant white-tablecloth atmosphere. We count it a real neighborhood find and have dined here multiple times. Succulent butter chicken, chicken tika masala, vandaloos, biriyani, and piping-hot naan. Service is always great and there is a... More

I love Indian food and have been to quite a few restaurants. Dishes of India is the best. I didn't eat from the buffet as I've found in other places that it's best to order from the menu. The first time I visited I had Chicken Tikka Masalas (?). It was perfect. The sauce was amazing, the chicken was tender,... More

Dishes of India is a hidden gem! Located just outside of Old Town Alexandria in the Belle Haven shopping center, it is worth the short drive. The restaurant is located downstairs, but is beautifully decorated and comfortable. The service is always attentive. And the food...the best Indian food we've ever had! We highly recommend this spot!

As if that was possible- this was nothing like the indian food we are used to. We have traveled the world and if you are looking for authentic indian food this is not the place to go. The service was great and very friendly. The food was too sweet and flavors (spices) way too toned down.

Great traditional Indian cuisine. The buffet has something for everyone, even if you're new to this style of cooking. The service was excellent, despite my arrival time. The buffet closes at 2:30. Well worth the money, even if you only have one plate. The lamb was delicious. It was nice to have the opportunity to enjoy it out, since I... More
