I'll say this: The food was good. Reservations for 6 people, we were led into the main dining room at the back. Poorly lit, it was hard to read the menu, so we ended up using our phone flashlights to read the menu. It was...difficult to understand the mumbling server with heavily-accented English ... he didn't move his lips when he talked, making it hard to understand him. We had to ask him to repeat himself several times, but eventually we all agreed on what we were ordering, and the meal arrived. The food was excellent. We started with Bombay Cheese Toast, followed by Butter Chicken, Tandoor Chicken, and Palak Paneer. Rich creamy sauces, great flavors, really nicely presented. The price was above average for Indian cuisine in the area, but we would consider returning on special occasions.More

Fox News was playing. Changed it upon request. Appetizer was good but meals were very underwhelming. Four people and only one of us enjoyed the entree. So many better restaurants that do all the dishes better. Service was good.

It’s been months since Celebration has been open close by. However, during the pandemic, it was carry-out and only until recently were we comfortable eating in. Not yet open for buffet (although shortly), it is a la cate. Easy parking in this strip plaza. Decent...space inside and or course they have a large hall which can be used for parties or large groups. Our hostess was very pleasant and asked us for each dish whether we wanted mild, medium or hot. We chose medium but a word to the wise. If you are unsure of how spicy you can tolerate, order mild. The pappad was served very classy and tasted very good. So was the kurkuri tikki. Unusual but awesome. For main course we ordered chicken biryani and daal Tadka. Both were great but we will order mild next time to fully enjoy. The roomali roti was so soft and awesome For dessert Holi Ras Malai and it was delicious. WE saw other items on the menu such as goat curry on the bone and will order next time.More

Some of the best flavored Indian I have had in a long time. I am taking one star off for prices, but we did take out, but I admit it's hard to judge price properly when you are at home scooping it out of plastic...bins and microwaving it. Great food though.More

Inventive, delicious, beautifully presented Indian food. We sat outside and had a great dinner. Kale and palak chaat was exceptional - rivaling the palak chaat at Rasika. Tandoori salmon was a favorite, with a mango and coconut infused sauce that we will go back for...again and again! Great service, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable.More

I was nervous to try Indian cuisine because I can’t tolerate the hot spices but do enjoy different flavors. From the minute my friend and I walked in the vibe remained great. Beautiful lavender colored lightening gave the place a sense of calm. the server...was very helpful in helping me decide what to order while understanding my spice issue. We shared the Kurkuri Tikki it was a bit spicy but I loved it. My friend had the Tandoori Salmon which was spectacular and I had the Bhatti Prawns again spectacular. hands down this place is a winner! From the vibe to the service to the presentation of the food and of course the food. I wish I would’ve had room for a dessert. Give it a try!More

We go to Celebration by Rupa Vira to experience inventive flavors and some of the most innovative takes on Indian food in the area. Even traditional Indian dishes seem to have more flavor. The Kale & Palak Chaat is one of our favorites; it’s such...a memorable celebration of flavors and textures – we order it each time we visit. The Kala Khatta is a really unique drink—we love the surprising combination of blackberry and black salt. We also highly recommend the Chili Cheese Toast, Pepperjack & Onion Kulcha, Dabbawalla Murgh, Paan Gulkand, the Pink Guava drink, and the Holi Rasmalai.More

One of the most gorgeous interiors for a Indian restaurant in the Ashburn ,ultra modern setting, good service and incredible attention to detail in food composition. Regarding the price they are not really expensive for the quantity they serve,.The taste was so unique and had...all the authentic spices and notes of what you would expect from Indian cuisine. Went here first week it opened, i was excited and had high expectations. Im glad they lived up to them. This is the First Indian restaurant ive been to that is clean and does not servestypical Indian food. It changes the game, adds new fuel to the fire. It does’nt try to sell u quantity like most Indian places, it sells u aesthetic and fine dining quality for the first time, something ive been craving from the food of my people. All the sad Indians that are commenting negative reviews on this page are just sad outdated markets that hate change. This place is more than refreshing, this is an Upgrade. Hats off to chef Raif khan and the manager Miss Sheila and her team. 10/10More
