“UPDATE: Under New (Bad) Management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2010

Unfortunately, my sparkling review below is now, moot. New owners with smarmy attitudes, pushy waiters, and staff that look like they just stepped from a cheesy 70s hood flick. We gave them a shot, but the food was a pale and sad imitation. I get the feeling there will also be a price hike. This wonderful restaurant and its beloved polite, professional staff are now gone, replaced by what can only be described as ham-handed quick-buck turnover. Time to find a new Indian restaurant. No Stars out of what once was five.

“Loosing its Authenticity?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2010

This restaurant was owned by a South Indian guy who made authentic South indian Vegetarian food. recently Place was sold out to somebody from North India. The food has lost its authenticity now. looks like the previous cooks do not work there. I could not eat the food last time i was there. the new owners are destroying the place. My humble request: Bring back the old chefs. You cannot cook South Indian food.

“Always pleasant... always satisfying!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2010

The Woodlands serves exotic and flavorful Southern Indian cuisine (no meat) and it does this consistently and inexpensively, and, refreshingly for South Florida, modestly and friendlily.

You never leave hungry and are always glad you came. It is family friendly but not loud and hectic - calm and relaxing is the order of the day.

The Food: Delicious and flavorful, from a simple tomato soup, to Udapai, Curries, Chutneys, Colossal Dosai, crunchy Voda and Papadums, to real tandoori baked Nan. I recommend the Raja Dinner Combo for newcomers - its a little of everything. The mango lasas are always sweet and quenching, as some of the dishes really have authentic down-hom southern indian FIRE! The deserts are exotic and deceptively simple - and irresistible! I recommend the Payasam!

The Service: sweet, accommodating, and impeccable.

The Price: Unbelievably reasonable. Great food for very little cost.

Overall, the best Indian experience to be found in Broward County. You will never know you re eating vegetarian.

“The best South Indian food without having to go to India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2010

My husband and I just found this restaurant. Having spent a great deal of time in South India I can honestly say this is the best South Indian (or any Indian) food we've ever had outside of India and even better than many of the restaurants in India. The ingredients are fresh and the dishes are authentically prepared and seasoned. For those interested in trying something other than the typical tandoori and heavy North Indian food this is the place to come. Although it's a vegetarian restaurant the meat is never missed. The staff are very service-oriented and the atmosphere is comfortable and bright.
