This is definitely one of the best Indian restaurant I had been in DC. The food and service was fine. The tables were pretty spacious, the restaurant smelled good and had good lighting.

Thanks TheElderWand for your visit and suggestions. I'm glad you enjoyed the taste of our dishes. We always include disposables on request. Our recipe for the Manchurian requires a bigger cut of cauliflower for it to be crunchy. Thanks for your suggestions.

Loved the food. Not an Indian expert but all we ordered was great and lot of vegetarian options. Service could be improved by having someone that can explain and recommend dishes to try.
