Great South Indian Food

Delicious South Indian food (Chettinad cuisine, to be specific) and friendly staff. If you pick a corner table, be prepared for delays. For fast service sit at the bar if you can.

Nice ambience, attentive service and excellent South Indian food. Plenty of vegetarian and non vegetarian choices. Kotthu Parotta, Appam and Biryani are my favorites!

My wife wanted to have the traditional "Parotta" from South india so i googled "parotta Fairfax va" and came up with this restaurant. The food was very good. Rasam was excellent. Kotthu Parotta was very nice but the kuruma for the Parotta has too much cardomom and cinnamon flavor. we told this to the owner and he agreed that some... More

While traditional South Indian food itself is hard to find, it is a bonus to find an authentic chettinad restaurant. The kids menu items are made less spicy. The Fish 65 was mild and my son loved it. In our table we ordered chicken lollipop, black pepper shrimp, aapam with egg curry & vadacurry, coconut milk, veg kothu parotta. Nothing... More

We were given table for 8 with any hand napkins or spoon fork.. To ask a waiter about this took 10 mins coz no one is bothered to see what customers want... The lady waiters shouldnt be waiters at all.. Change your staff everything will be excellent... Seriously very bad hospitality...

There's a growing Indian community around Reston and Herndon, due to the fast-growing IT industry in the Dulles Corridor. Worldgate shopping center in Herndon has a cinema featuring Bollywood films, so of course an Indian restaurant is also nearby. Usually Indian menus in the DC area (and elsewhere in the West, actually) concentrate on northern "Muglai" dishes, which are nice... More

Wasn't sure what expect. We found the staff friend helpful and enthusiastic. This restaurant offers authentic Indian cuisine. The quality was good and the spicing is complex and hot. Our group was quite possibly one of only two or three tables with Caucasians. There were so many locals and indian couples and families present. We sampled several different breads as... More

I went here with some work friends and we ordered quite a few dishes so we could sample different options. The chicken 65 was bland and dry, the Malai Palak Paneer was spicy but with no other flavors as well as incredibly runny - akin to baby food runny - not good at all. The Chicken Tikka Masala was average... More

I had the Mutton Chukka Varuval, a curry dish that came with a bowl of white Basmati rice. The mutton was very tender and flavorful, and the quantity was generous. The waiter was very attentive and kept the water glass filled. For dessert I tried the fruit custard, which was okay (chunks of cut fruit is a thin custard). The... More
