“Best lunch buffet in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I first went to this restaurant last year to celebrate a colleague's birthday and since then, I've been back many times. Now even the staff remembers my face. Lunch time is between 11:30 am to 2 pm. If you go there around dinner time, it might be on the pricy side. Around lunch time, however, a lunch buffet for one person would cost no more than $12 plus tips. The food is great. The staff is friendly. It's great for group and family.

“Great Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food here is very tasty! I’ve tried most the non-vegetarian menu and it’s all so yummy. I usually get the garlic naan and tandoori platter--it has a little bit of everything--chicken, shrimp, and lamb. The restaurant is in a somewhat strange location (in a shopping center) but the décor inside is beautiful. It's a great place whether you're out with friends or for a date night. The staff is friendly and attentive. Definitely the place to go when you want an Indian food fix!

“Great lunch buffet, odd hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

I usually go to Aditi for their lunch buffet, its about 10 bucks and if your into Indian food I would definitely recommend it. They do have weird hours. I believe they open for dinner around 5:30 or so. Its in a great location right across from the movie theatre in kingstowne.

“Aditi Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I am not familiar with regions of origin for Indian food. That being said I eat Indian because I've been conditioned to believe that the food is healthier than most. Indian is the one place I can get vegan meals without soy and tofu.
This was my second visit and like @Travelguy 51 says, Quiet, comfortable, modern interior. Service was very attentive." Service could have been better if the waiter had stayed around long enough to guide us thru the menu items and familiarize us with Indian cuisine. so because we had to wade through the menu and read every description it took a long time to order. Vegan items were clearly marked but warned to remind the waiter that the items are vegan.
Aditi offers a lunch buffet selections were plentiful and some people ate those items. there were no vegan items on the buffet.
The food was really good great tasting. I ordered a vegetable coconut milk curry that was so good. The vegetables were scant but not over cooked. They like most Indian restaurants only serve white basmati rice. Naan was good and so was the vegan Roti bread. They also have great lentil chips and lentil fritters. The tamarind sauce and the cilantro yogurt sauce was really good with the veggie samosas and the lentil fritters. My favorite was the Pepper Water Soup, Mulligatawny soup large bowl serving and smooth delicate taste. Overall the meal was better than expected, would have appreciated the waiters help on the menu selections. Beautiful setting inside and out. Clean well stocked women's bathroom.

“Charming Indian restaurant tucked away in a shopping center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

It can be a little tricky to find, but the food is worth it. Quiet, comfortable, modern interior. Service was very attentive. Their menu ranges across the various cuisines of India, including tandoori. We were a group of nine, so we tried a number of different dishes. Vegetables, fish, lamb, curry sauces - all were carefully made and well spiced. (There were some very spicy dishes but also mild ones.) Servings were ample, with lots of naan and basmati rice. Good range of cocktails, wine by the glass, and imported beers. When you look around and see mostly Indian patrons, you know you're in a good place.
