“This will be our go to Indian place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We took our family with 3 small boys here for the lunch buffet. This place was packed. Great service. Our drinks were always full. The food was very warm and I got to try some new dishes I had not had before. The naan was not cooked with a somewhat crispy crust like I like it. My husband and I prefer saag paneer, or the spinach with the cheese instead of potatoes. Everyone enjoyed the rice pudding and the honey dumplings. My 8 year old son kept raving about the food. We will be back.

“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.
