I wish I had known earlier that there was no hot water in the ladies room. When I reported it to the hostess, a nearby waitress laughed it off and said she never had time to wait until the water warmed up. It never warmed up. But, as a food service professional, she should have been more concerned about the... More

I have eaten Indian food in several cities however not very often. I only tried their buffet and the best part of it was the fruit and rice pudding. I have eaten Indian food in other cities and this food was not near as good. To be fair I am not a big Indian food fan however those with me... More

Spice Xing has fantastic service, excellent service and amazing decor. Sadly these three are usually neglected by many South Asian restaurants that are low-mid scale. Spice Xing definitely stands out in these respects. The waiters are prompt, courteous, and are never pushy. I just wish I could say great things about the food as well. The food certainly isn't bad... More

Fare included standard North and South Indian dishes as well as so-called "Indian Chinese" food. There also was a stand for street snack food (pani poori, etc).

Rude waiter and food was subpar. Got sick afterwards.We had vegetable dish and fish curry which were bland. Felt rushed out, very uninviting. Was disappointed especially because my husband and I hardly ever have time for a date - wanted tasty Indian food and some R&R - received the exact opposite, then the added pleasure of GI distress.

India Garden was closed for a private party at lunchtime this Sunday, so we ventured a bit farther north into Rockville Town Center to try Spice Xing for the first time. We were not disappointed. The buffet offerings were varied, well-seasoned, and all delicious. The menu offers some pan-Asian additions to the usual Indian fare. My favorite selections were the... More

We have eaten at Spice Xing's many times and always enjoyed it. This time both the service and the food were poor. I ordered a shrimp dish and the shrimp were tough and over-cooked. No condiments were served with the naan or the main dishes. We told the waiter that we needed to get out in time to see a... More

Indian restaurant with a twist, the menu includes 'foreign' dishes such as the French vegetable gratin. I guess this means groups of people who do and don't like curries can come. Anyway, I stuck to the vegetarian Indian food, with a paneer dish. Asked for medium spiced and it was still quite mild. but very tasty nonetheless. Good range of... More
