“Average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

We stopped by the place on the drive back, just as a rest stop. The food was not that great, I have had better. The presentation was very average, the food came in a bowl and it was not really appealing. I would not go there again, if there is another indian place check that out.

“Oh my goodness yum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant... so cool. The atmosphere was great, with cool, sunken booth areas and ethnic decorations. The staff was very friendly, and the food (I'm not usually a fan of Indian) was incredible! Really, my complaint was that the alcohol was a bit overpriced. Definitely returning!

“Very good Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

This is probably the best Indian restaurant in Northern Virgina. The food is north Indian and the quality is excellent. The lunch buffet is a bargain and has a lot of food variety. The owners are two brothers and they are very friendly.
