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

By far the best in Alexandria, if not Northern Virginia. The food is excellent, and the staff are wonderful and very heapful. I try and go once a month and love to bring guests who are always pleased.

We had our doubts......small store front restaurant in a strip mall and you have to walk downstairs to get into the restaurant that is a very simple decor- but the food and service is outstanding. Very reasonably priced for what we considered gourmet quality food. I guess the ambiance and location force the prices down but this is a winner.

I have traveled all over the United States and all over the World. Lived in the Washington DC area for over 20 years. Dishes of India in my honest opinion and having gone to many Indian Restaurants the best in the United States. Something to think about also. The Restaurant had to close down in the early 2000's due to... More

Such a funny location to find a restaurant of this caliber -- downstairs in a strip mall - but don't let that put you off. This place is a gem. Not only do they have the kind of staff that remembers your name after only a few visits, but the food is amazing. I have had Indian next door neighbors... More

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
