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.

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 have been here mutiple times and woodlands has never disappointed me. The variety of food and taste has always been exceptional. Right from Pani Puri , Pav bhaji to the paneer butter masala and naan's , its always been very tasty experience. The dosa and sambar are also to the mark. The Gulab Jamun has always been my favorite... 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

This buffet is the best deal in town. It is not huge, but wow, is it tremendous. The quality of all of the food is outstanding. They also walk around with additional food. The bill was $17.50 for two people. Again, this place is great. The only negative is that no one who works there smiles :)

We went to lunch on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant was busy but the buffet was well maintained and the food selection and flavors were excellent. The vegetable curry was one of the best I've had; the assortment of vegetables was great and it was perfectly spiced. Mint rice was a new experience and it was much better than I... More

On a Saturday afternoon the place was packed. We were seated after a short wait. The buffet was standard fare, at least what has become standard fare for Indian Vegetarian restaurants in the general Washington DC area. The multi-course South Indian vegetarian "marriage meal" ingredients were all there. A chaat table and several Indian desserts including laddoos, ambrosia, carrot ka... More

Have been there for a weekend buffet. Crowded as all other Indian restaurants around. Food quality, ambience average average average. Prices are little on the expensive side compared to other restaurants in Fairfax VA. One thing that stood out is their customer service. They tend to rush the customers to leave to accommodate waiting guests. Have seen that happening to... More
