Took friends for a get together. The sumptuous six course meal was very good ! My friends were very happy and were talking about the meal even a week later. The belly dancing was very entertaining.

I have been to Mem Sahib since they started in Onley, Maryland. I am an Indian and have not had this good Indian food anywhere in DC area. The Tandoori Chicken is the best that you would anywhere around. It takes time but that is the idea, relax and enjoy. If you like Indian food or ready to try something new, you just can not go wrong.

Right off the bat, this is NOT your usual Indian restaurant. You have to understand how this place works before you go; otherwise you will be disappointed as other people have unfairly reviewed. This is a 3 hour fixed price fixed menu place. It is a 6 course meal which starts with sitting on nice cushions and washing your hands at the table and a nice hot towel. You are a little close to the adjacent party, but that is part of the fun. There are veg and non veg options. The meal starts with a single plate of "salad" appetizers; you all share the same plate and eat with your hands. This is followed by tandoori chicken, chicken makhani / lamb , fruits/nuts, dessert and chai. Food is pretty good quality. All of this is while a large screen projector is playing Bollywood film song videos. The atmosphere is very comfortable and relaxing. Lots of parties celebrating birthdays and having a great time. Belly dancing on sat nights is a hit or miss (depends on the girl).
Word of caution: this place is all about having a relaxing time with a group of friends. Plan on spending at least 3 hours. Service is slower than average, but it takes time to eat a 6 course meal. And dont write bad reviews about a place simply because YOU dont understand how it works. Do a little research before you go.

I did not try the food, but the place didn't seem very good. They refused to accommodate me-- they would only give me their six-course dinner even though I wanted less food, and they forbid me from sharing food with a friend. I left before seeing what the food was like.
