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

Stuck in a small shopping plaza, this Indian restaurant is the best I have been to in quite awhile. Reasonably priced, generous portions, diverse menu, delicious food, and great service, you can't beat that. We will be back again and again.

I come here once in a while when I want my Indian food fix. Their buffet is the best way to sample a wide variety of dishes without the premium price of just once. For an all-you-can-eat buffet the value and quality is amazing. Staff is also very attentive to all their guests. Location is pretty off-the-beaten path, but highly... More

Just walking in the front door got me excited for the meal as I was enveloped by the smell of spices. The staff is great and seated me right away. I had a spicy Lamb dish that was excellent. The meat was tender and the sauce spicy. I suggest getting the Naan as it was fresh, warm, and delicious. A... More

I eat here about monthly. The past few times it seems they're behind in restocking, especially the main entrees. Today both mains, the salmon and chicken, were completely empty when I went thru the line. They were eventually replenished during my meal time. The service, food quality and value are still good. Perhaps this was just an off day, but... More

I have been coming to Dishes of India for many years now. The food is always excellent, and the service superb. I have never had a bad meal here and am sorry that it's no longer on my way home from work. I almost always order the Butter Chicken, but with paneer instead. They are happy to accommodate my request.... More
