This is a favorite place and we visit whenever we are in Alexandria and we've been coming for years. This trip was no exception. One thing you should know it that this restaurant is in a basement in a shopping mall and requires a walk down a set of steps, look for a Subway upstairs. This trip, we introduced two... More

The sign says they close at 10 but when we got there at 915 he was already telling another Indian family "takeout only" and "I told you! No southern Indian dishes"! We probably should have left then but we ordered takeout and when we got home the food was the worst Indian I have ever had. So for the bad... More

Typically I go for the lunch buffet, which usually is quite good and on par with three other Indian buffets in the vicinity which I frequent. IMO the buffet at Dishes of India almost always hits the spot -- once in a while there will be a dish that just does not do it, but mostly, the buffet is a... More

I love Indian food and I have to say my recent visit here was excellent. Their food is very good. The restaurant is rather plain and "boring" but the service is very good and the food is very good. Everything I had was excellent. The chicken tika was cooked perfectly, moist, tasted great. The samosas were great. Sides were great.... More

This was the most amazing food, and service!!! We were in the area for a hockey game, and wanted something warm and substantial after spending time in a cold rink, and we found it. From the moment we walked in the staff was friendly and attentive (not overbearing). We had drinks ordered, and in front of us in less than... More

The menu had a good geographic variety of Indian food and plenty of vegetarian options. The decor was understated but appropriate. Service was prompt and professional. I am very stingy with my five-star reviews but I left here stuffed full of amazing food and have only good things to say about it. I literally can't think of a thing that... More

Tucked away in a small stripmall type older shopping center you may not see this location straight away. It is below ground, once down the stairs, a medium size venue awaits, perhaps 20 or so tables. The staff is always welcoming and friendly, and happy to see their customers. I have eaten here for lunch, and dinners many times, and... More

Had a great buffet at the Dishes of India in Alexandria. The buffet was very nice with over 10 dishes. There were three chicken dishes and one lamb for meat items. I tried all of the meat dishes and they were awesome. The lentil soup was also nice. Wait staff was attentive and pleasant. Nice place and we will be... More
