I'm a meat-eating, non-Indian, who lives in DC, and I'm in love with this place. It's a short distance from the city--take Rt. 66 and exit at Rt. 50 Fairfax. It has an incredible variety of absolutely outstanding dishes on their lunch buffet, at a very reasonable price. The owner and his wife always seem present to ensure it's quality, and it's always full of Indian folks--always a good sign in an ethnic restaurant. I have been to South India recently where the food is delicious, but I never had a meal this like this there, much less in the DC area. With Indian veggie food this good and varied I honesly do not miss the meat. I come away totally satisfied, stuffed and happy each time, and undoubtedly much healthier than if I had eaten a big meat meal. If you midly like or have had only medicore experiences with Indian food you must try this place, or if you like Indian food already, but don't know where to go for a great meal--you must give this a try. My only problem now, is that all my other Indian haunts in the area are a disappointment. I count the days till I can return here. There simply is nothing that compares.
