Vegetarian treat

Woodlands is our occasional Sabbath treat, perfect for vegetarians who enjoy South Indian food and dislike doing dishes! When the transportation center next door is completed, parking and public transportation will enhance this gem's access.

I've been going here for years, and eaten in many Indian restaurants home and abroad, and Woodlands by comparison is consistently great food. South Asian food as prepared in many U.S. restaurants can be overly oily, overly salty, overly sweet, but not at Woodlands; it's as good as original South Indian food that's served in Indian homes. Service can be... More

Came here on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Plenty of food to choose from in the buffet. I think vegetarians and non-vegetarians can enjoy it.

My friends and I went on the weekend for the buffet and we had to wait a little because the restaurant was very crowded. A lot of families with young children and a lot of Indians (which was a good sign I was told). The selection of offerings was excellent and everything tasted great. I was a little confused with...

Woodlands has a great South Indian vegetarian lunch buffet -- a rarity on a number of fronts in the Mid-Atlantic area. The food is fresh, perfectly spiced and provides a fair sampling of standard South Indian restaurant dishes. The decor is plain but clean and pleasing. Service is efficient. And, the price is fair and reasonable. Lines can form on... More

Great taste, decent ambiance, reasonable price and nice restaurant staff and a caring owner..All put together, Woodlands is a nice place to have South Indian Vegetarian. Of course, their other dishes are good as well. Get in early to avoid long waiting time and crowd. I had visited this place last year March and April.

I really liked the Indian cuisine here. I was not expecting much as I am not into vegetarian food but it turned out to be better than expected. :)

This place is great if you want vegetarian Indian food. We have tried both the buffet and individual items on the menu and definitely prefer the buffet. The dosas we had before were dry, and we were put off by the whole peppercorns in the filling, not so great biting into one of those. The samosas were mediocre too. But... More

Did take-out for relatives who go regularly. Didn't know how much to order so got an order of iddly and 2 orders of samosas, a Woodlands Special Spring Dosai, and an order of Channa Palak. Came with sambar, basmati rice, pachadi, and chutney. Could have ordered one more Dosai or another curry. Would also suggest ordering Thali for more variety.... More

This is a great, if off the beaten path, south indian restarant. Don't let the mall it is in fool you. Once you enter you are in an authentic indian restaurant with excellent food at a good value. We had: Vegetable Uthappam, Mysore Masala Dosa, Pesarat Uppuma, Vegetable Jalfrezi, Channa Masala. I had never had Uppuma before and it was... More
