My wife and I recently discovered this place and the south indian cuisine blows us away. The staff are very friendly and so is the proprietor. We have been there every other weekend - enough times to be recognized by their staff. If you want authentic south indian cuisine, this is the place to go. The weekends are very busy... More

Very bad service from staff and the owner, unbelievably RUDE. Did you know they have a policy of putting the bill on your table if you are not done in 30mins? And further, that every staff will be sent to collect the bill (every few minutes) even though you tell them you are not done and in the middle of... More

Excellent South Indian good! We were a large group (12 people) with varied South Indian favorites and mixed spice levels. The restaurant managed our orders ably. Kudos for serving the kids first, without being explicitly requested. Most dishes are on the spicier side. If you're familiar with Hindi, the spice levels are a tad "masaledaar". The service is good. The... More

We stopped at this place during our visit to Fairfax. We found it while searching for a vegetarian restaurant. Next time we are in the are we will stop by. I ordered a mango beverage that the waiter recommended and it was delicious. It took me back to my childhood when I used to eat mangoes right from the tree.... More

I'm a meat-eating, non-Indian, who lives in DC, and I'm in love with this place. It's a short distance from the city--take Rt. 66 and exit at Rt. 50 Fairfax. It has an incredible variety of absolutely outstanding dishes on their lunch buffet, at a very reasonable price. The owner and his wife always seem present to ensure it's quality,... More
