“Tasty menu and nice ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My recent buffet lunch experience was quite pleasant. I was visiting Fairfax area from NJ with my family. They had good variety with tasty north/south Indian combinations. The place was clean with good ambience and the staff were very courteous.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Whenever I visit DC, I come here. Sometimes you have to wait but no big deal. Dosa is really good and so was the food. Buffet was nice, had a variety of different things. i grew up in India and the Pani Puri is one of the best. Not a far drive from DC. Come here it is good.

“Excellent food and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I used to visit the Woodlands restaurant all the time when living in Fairfax. The lunch buffet is a steal! It is best to get there right when they open so everything is fresh and you get first pick. There is so much variety and the dishes are very tasty. I love the spicy condiments and dal poured over those fluffy white pancakes.
Addictive and cheap!

“Great Food and Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great Food and Great Location. The best in the area, gosh and their dosa is the tops (order them as you sit down). We enjoyed their lunch time buffet (make sure and order the gram masala tea) their location is so convenient to 50 and 66. Great food, the flavor combinations are perfect, and great service the staff is very attentive and quick.

“Thali Menu- Excellent Addition!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We had not dined at Woodlands in the evening for several months although we frequently enjoy the lunch buffet. Tonight we were introduced to the new expanded dinner menu that features a "Thali" option that includes an entree, rice, four restaurant selected side dishes, yogurt, soup of the day, and naan. This delight is arranged on a tray with the entree in the center and the other dishes in small bowls surrounding it. A feast for the eye and the stomach!
Our total bill for two "Thali" selections was less than $30! What value!
The service was impeccable and the selections fresh and flavorful. Tonight was just the start of many future Woodlands dinners.
