“Tried a couple mainstays but will be back for more adventurous dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

It was aloo bobi and butter chicken to get a feel for this place and both were very good. Waiter suggested lamb curry baked in the kadhai for our next time. Place was packed inside and out on a Saturday night, but the food arrived hot and freshly prepared. Service is old school which is a good thing. We'll be back soon.

“Superb Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is a fantastic restaurant serving authentic Indian cuisine. Service is superior. Diners may dress casually. Moderately expensive compared to Bethesda's other fine restaurants.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We've been trying various Indian restaurants around the northern DC and Maryland suburbs and compared to the "taste pop" of these other places, Kadhai is just so-so - its just OK.

None of the four dishes we ordered: eggplant, masala chicken, lamb, and something else had the typical zip that we've enjoyed in other nearby Indian restaurants. Everything was pretty forgettable. Even my wife, an anglo, has cooked better Indian dishes at home.

On the positive side - service is pleasant and very attentive.

“Wonderful Indian food in Bethesda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We just enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Kadhi. Every dish was prepared well, presented well and tasted unique and delicious. we ordered somosas, behlpuri, palak Chaat to start, then chicken vindaloo, rogan Josh, lamb saag, and chicken korma along with a basket of assorted breads. We will definitely be going back!! S happy they are in our neighborhood.......

The only bad part was that the service was rushed. Our dinners came out before we finished our "noshes". We had to send them back to the kitchen. However, no problem and very nice people.
