I have been to several Indian weddings and have had some amazing Indian food in my adopted city of Washington DC--Hot & Cold ranks up there with the best of the best. I was recently driving my grandfather of 96 from his home in Florida to my home in Washington DC for Easter. It was lunchtime and we were near... More

What a surprise for us, traveling through Va. from the West coast, to happen on this superb food in the Hot and Cold Cafe and with a friendly chef, Uday. We ordered from the menu, dal with spinach was so good that we took home 2 orders for dinner. homemade chutney, rice vegetable patak, mango pudding. Many vegetarian items.

Wonderful! We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor. It is in the heart of downtown. It is small on the inside and they offer a buffet. We were the only ones in the place when we went which made me wonder if it would be good, but it was great! The owner came over and talked to us and he... More

We were in downtown Lynchburg to visit some antique shops and happened to see this café on a side street. The host was very friendly and offered suggestions. When we chose the hummus, the host brought out a sample of the eggplant dip as well. The chef/host explained that he makes everything there. I wish we'd discovered the café a... More

I eaten here countless times, and each time I am convinced that this is the best restaurant I've beent to. The service is unbelievable. From the moment you walk in, chef and owner Uday is right there to greet you, and if he knows you, he comes out to hug and welcome you as if you are his personal guest... More

You can't beat Hot & Cold for Chef Uday's buffet. Everything on it is delicious. The homemade mango pudding with fruit is to die for. On Saturdays, he has soup and baklava, too. And his regular menu is pretty darned good, as well. And best of all, Uday is one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Stop by.... More

The food was about the best we've ever had. Homemade hummus and the Keer were outstanding. Friendly, gracious owner/chef. Next time we're in Lynchburg we're going to get there in time for the lunch buffet so we can sample more of the delicious cuisine! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

All fresh foods, you can chat with the owner as you eat. Very good indian options, also mediterranean hummus and pita, great value and high quality. very... More

We had an excellent late lunch at Hot and Cold Cafe on a Tuesday afternoon. The owner was very charming and helpful. We started off with his homemade hummus which was great. I had a spinach/lamb dish that was wonderful. My wife got the black and white wrap also great. The baklava was yummy, but we had to take it... More
