We ordered take out from Kumari tonight and the quality of the food was just as good as three years ago when we first visited. If you are in Baltimore, do try the food and you will not be disappointed.

Took in the Museum and began walking to find a place to eat. I haven't had Indian food for over 10 years after a bad experience. I was pleasantly surprised that this food was wonderful. I am converted. Lamb Korma was so good. Thought I...was going to chicken out but was so happy I tried it. Server was great too. Was there when we needed him. Will go again when I am in Baltimore!More

Awful. I ordered for delivery through Beyond Menu (which also sucks, but that's another story). Took 40 minutes longer than they initially said. Called the restaurant twice. They kept saying "We called the driver and it will be five minutes" which were both lies. When...it finally got there, the driver said he had gotten lost. No apology. Then, after he left, it turned out the food was cold, the "mild" sauce was hot, and the bread "stuffed with dates and raisins" had instead some kind of red sugary substance inside. Yuck. The dessert I ordered wasn't in the bag but they'd included something else that I couldn't eat. I called both Beyond Menu and the restaurant to get my money for at least that item back--along with my tip! They both refused. So they basically stole money from me. Will never use the app or this restaurant again.More

My boyfriend and I tried the Kumari lunch buffet one Sunday after church and made it a tradition! The buffet is delicious and extensive for the affordable price, the staff is friendly, and it’s super close to everything else we like in Mount Vernon. There’s...a broad selection of Indian food but also some Chinese dishes and Momo, a Nepali dumpling that I highly recommend. Also be sure to try out the gulab jamoon if they’re out!More

Free delivery to hotel by door dash I don’t like really spicy food, so I’m always scared to order Indian food. Most of it wasn’t spicy at all. I ordered the Meat Samosa, Chicken Korma/Coconut Korma, Chana Masala and Kashmiri Naan. The Chana Masala was...slightly spicy, but very mild heat. Meat Samosa- filled mostly with ground lamb and a few peas. It was tasty, but I wish there were some potatoes in there. I don’t know if I’d order this again. Chicken Korma/Coconut Korma- this was amazing! So delicious, expect the white meat chicken was a little dry. Chana Masala- Very good. A little spicy. Kashmiri Naan—filled with cashews and coconut—delicious! The bread was soft and the filling was so good. I would definitely come back here again.More

We often go out to eat at Kumari. Food is tasty, well spiced and very reasonably priced. We have enjoyed their buffet for lunch. It offers a large variety of meat and vegetable dishes. For a light dinner, we like their lentil soup and samosa...(meat & vegetable). I am giving this restaurant a 4 rather than a 5 because it is often empty when we eat there and we like being surrounded by other customers when we go out to eat.More

I decided to try this place because I had free unused $10 with restaurant.com. The server was hesitant to take it but finally agreed. He said that the discount should only be used while ordering off the menu, not for the lunch buffet. The restaurant.com...document only stated that a minimum of $30 is required, which I was prepared to do. The food was delicious, but not quite like the other Indian buffets I have tried. In addition to the usual Indian entrees, there were a couple kind of Chinese or southeast Asian entrees. The mango lassi was thick and yummy.More

We ate here for the first time after visiting the "Japanese Woodblock Prints: The Art of Collaboration" at the Walters Art Museum. I ordered the Lamb Korma, a wonderful cashew-sauce based dish served over fluffy and flavorful basmati rice, enjoying it with a sweet lassi...(yogurt) drink. My friends ordered other lamb dishes, which they praised. Our waiter was most attentive, checking on us several times during the meal. Recommended.More

I've tried several Indian spots around Maryland and Kumari is hands down the best in quality, flavor and convenience. We often order over the weekends and we always get the same thing. Butter chicken with garlic naan and veggie samosas. We also make sure to...order extra chutney on the side because the three kinds that they offer are DELICIOUS. So make sure when you are ordering takeout to let the server know you would like the chutneys otherwise they can be pretty stingy with them. The prices are inexpensive and the food takes around 15 minutes to prepare. There is a little bit of a language barrier when trying to convey specific details about your order but patience is a virtue. The food is worth it.More

Excellent food for a great price. We usually get them Nepali Bhojan which comes with naan bread, daal curry, lamb curry, and some small sides.
