We reserved at Lehja based on the TA and other rave reviews. It's rare to go to a place with high expectations and have them exceeded, but this is one of those places. It was a quiet Sunday and not many patrons but they made it special for us. Wonderfully knowledgable and charming service from Raj, who had excellent recommendations,... More

For me, Lehja had only one problem--I wanted to try almost everything on the menu, but we have our limits. What particularly excited me was that it had such variety, and many dishes you don't see at most Indian restaurants in the suburbs. My server not only helped me to choose with his own recommendations and descriptions, but he let... More

After past travels in Asia and Europe my taste buds were calling out for some genuine Indian tastes and after some serious checking with friend and colleagues Lehja was recommended..... and it turned out to be excellent treat and a total recapture of past memories. Everything was perfect with superb taste, presentation and variety. I'll be back many times! Although... More

I'm Indian and it's hard to get me to an Indian restaurant since most of the menu items are made mild and lacking flavor for the American palate. If you order the food at Lehja Medium Hot, then they are quite authentic tasting and the flavor is excellent. Additionally, they go out of their way to source fresh, local ingredients.... More

There are few places even in India where you can get this quality of fine indian food. After you are seated if Sonny comes and you tell him what you like, he goes out of his way to ensure that your food is to your liking. The rich variety and intricate balance of spices and heat are beautifully blended to... More

This restaurant provides innovation to standard Indian cousin. It's an upbeat environment albeit noisy at times. A delight and a place to return to time after time.

The food was great and the waiter answered any questions we had about the food. All food could be made your spicy preference. The garlic naan was amazing and crispy yummy. I had the lamb dish and it was great. My husband has a food week special of fish medley in a green mango sauce and it was delicious.

My daughter was craving Indian food, so I looked up this restaurant and found it had the best review in Richmond. We had late lunch on a Saturday and they offered a three course meal with drink for $18 each. Our server was excellent and was also the chef for our meal. My daughter got a salad to start and...
