First visit, not our last! Food - delicious. Garlic naan, Chicken Makhani, Chicken Khadai, Lamb chops grilled with vegetables, Methi Malai Chicken and Mango Lassi were all excellent. The Palak Chaat was good but not nearly as good as Rasika's version. Mango chutney was ok. Portions are very generous. Service - very good: polite, pleasant, attentive. Will definitely return !!

We stopped in for the buffet after reading some of the other reviews. Tasty options abounded. Chickpeas, palak paneer, chicken, and lamb as well as other veg dishes. Pakoras and loads of sauces, garnishes. I thought each dish was tasty and each one tasted different than the next. Not so spicy which I like. The staff was so nice that... More

Nice staff and atmosphere, delicious lunch buffet with many chicken and veggie dishes; the lamb is cooked to perfection. Rice pudding for dessert. Went there for a work lunch but will bring husband back for dinner.

Had a delicious meal the other night. The menu is extensive and has all the usual offerings. But they are fresh and well-prepared. The service is good and the food us nicely presented

We took our family with 3 small boys here for the lunch buffet. This place was packed. Great service. Our drinks were always full. The food was very warm and I got to try some new dishes I had not had before. The naan was not cooked with a somewhat crispy crust like I like it. My husband and I... More

It was aloo bobi and butter chicken to get a feel for this place and both were very good. Waiter suggested lamb curry baked in the kadhai for our next time. Place was packed inside and out on a Saturday night, but the food arrived hot and freshly prepared. Service is old school which is a good thing. We'll be... More

This is a fantastic restaurant serving authentic Indian cuisine. Service is superior. Diners may dress casually. Moderately expensive compared to Bethesda's other fine restaurants.

We've been trying various Indian restaurants around the northern DC and Maryland suburbs and compared to the "taste pop" of these other places, Kadhai is just so-so - its just OK. None of the four dishes we ordered: eggplant, masala chicken, lamb, and something else had the typical zip that we've enjoyed in other nearby Indian restaurants. Everything was pretty... More

We will definitely be going back!! S happy they are in our neighborhood....... The only... More
