We wanted to try something light, so we decided to order some appetizers. We ordered the samosa and a plate of chat papri. Great service. The samosa wasn't too my liking since the fillings were a little too mushy for me. The char papri on the other hand was very delicious and authentic tasting. I will go back to try... More

Y third trip to Dishes of India today. Never disappointed. The lunch buffet is awesome and appears to have a few extras on the weekends. Had a lovely Shrimp dish that was new ( to me) and 2 desserts.

We were tempted by the positive reviews and ordered carry out. The first impression was positive when we picked up the food. The staff was very welcoming. We couldn't wait to get home and taste the food. The dish that we got didn't resemble any of the Chicken Vindaloos we have eaten in the past. The sauce tasted like a... More

Drove some way to visit this restaurant. I was shocked how one dimensional, and bland the curry, and dhal were. Both dishes were an unappetising shade of dark brown and tasteless. Never again.

Recently had lunch at Dishes of India with my wife. We were pleased to find good Indian food within just a few miles of home. We ordered off the buffet and were not disappointed in any of the items. Plenty of choices to meet all tastes from mild to spicy. Several protein dish choices. Staff was friendly and observant. My... More

Good ambiance, great service and good food. A combination hard to find in most restaurants. Authentic Indian food for sure. I ordered saag chicken, tandoori chicken and garlic naan.. Every thing was so delicious. Dessert kheer was a good way to end the dinner.

We probably get take-out from Dishes of India at least once a month and have never been disappointed. I always get palak paneer (spinach with cheese cubes) and have to say that it is the best I have had anywhere, including New Delhi. It goes great with onion kulcha and pretty much any other dish on the menu. Although we... More
