“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Take-out order: Samosas, tandoori wings, a chicken curry and a lamb korma. All were delicious - the samosas were the best I've ever had; the curries were flavorful with a hint of spice, but not overly hot. They did screw up and my lamb korma ended up being chicken korma - so double check your meats. But we'll definitely order from Aditi again.

“Tremendous food and outstanding service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

We love this place and go here often. The wait staff is exceptional and we feel like their extended family. On our most recent visit, our waiter brought us a samosa to take home for our sleeping toddler. She much enjoyed this upon waking up. This is an example of the type of wonderful service at Aditi. We find it some of the best Indian food in the metro area. A wonderful place!

“Love coming back here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This place really is superb, and if you want better Indian food, your only option is to go to Rasika in the District. But if you go here, you pay far less and you don't have to deal with the headaches of parking in the District. Tried the samosa chat for the first time today, which is slightly different than the samosa (try it, you won't be disappointed...very well seasoned). Our other appetizer was the coconut lamb, which was beautifully spiced and extremely flavorful. My date got the chicken tikka (like she always does) and I decided to try the pepper chicken for the first time. It was to die for - so, so good. So, we split two appetizers, had two entrees, split an order of onion naan, and a bottle of wine and got out of there for $75 including tip. One of the very best values in Indian food I've seen anywhere in the U.S.

“Excellent place for a variety of occasions.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This place is down right delicious. Family friendly with excellent service. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. We have our usual table and they know what we usually order. This place is great for a family meal, a romantic date, or anything in between. Highly recommended.

“good first visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Stopped by last Saturday after watching Skyfall. The place was packed and had to wait about 10 minutes. Food was most excellent, I had the rabbit, which was very spicy and very tasty. I had also had Mawligatawny soup for an appetizer, very tasty and almost enough for a main course. My drink was a mango lassi, kind of small, but tasty.

The place is small, so you're get in on everyone else's conversations when it's crowded.

The only two anomalies: 1) a lot of police and police cars in the Kingstowne Plaza (are they expecting trouble on an early Saturday night; and 2) a lot of kids on scotters and skateboards whooping it up outside the window.

A pretty good visit, other than these two minor nits.
