I used to LOVE this place. It was awesome for about 15 years, But a couple of years ago, it started to change. The service is still fantastic and the staff are so friendly, but... who's doing the cooking? I thought it might have been a temporary thing. Maybe the cook is overseas? Maybe someone new ran the kitchen today?... More

Confession: over the years I have had mixed experiences at Dishes of India. No longer. Dishes of India now is one of the best Indian restaurants in the Alexandria area and offers consistently tasty food, combined with high-quality, friendly service. The luncheon buffet provides an excellent selection of fresh entrees and side dishes and dessert along with warm complementary naan,... More

You might hesitate because the restaurant is downstairs, but it's great food in a darker, romantic setting. Great for couples. Great Saag Paneer and Began Bhartha for vegetarians. Their spinach is creamy and smooth without being too thick or thin. Eggplant is cooked soft but not mushy, spices are just right. Buffet on weekend lunches - check the options before... More

Friendly staff with pretty bland food for my taste. My friends who prefer non spicy food loved it . Do not ask for customizations to your food, they will screw it up. It's pretty good environment and will go back again if I I have to host guests who cannot take spicy food

i love this place. Some of the best food outside of India. Also, I feel like I am among family here as it is owned by the Bhatt family and all the people who work here are amazing. Highly reccommend

The restaurant is much better than it looks. We were there for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The service was great too. It is a place without any pretension but delivering what they promise.

I visited Dishes of India 18 Nov 16 approximately 7pm. The restaurant was pretty full so I chose to take my food to go. My order was taken promptly and it took about 30 mins which was appropriate for what I ordered. The food was very delicious and I couldn't have enjoyed it any better. The customer service was great... More

We wanted to try something light, so we decided to order some appetizers. We ordered the samosa and a plate of chat papri. Great service. The samosa wasn't too my liking since the fillings were a little too mushy for me. The char papri on the other hand was very delicious and authentic tasting. I will go back to try... More

Y third trip to Dishes of India today. Never disappointed. The lunch buffet is awesome and appears to have a few extras on the weekends. Had a lovely Shrimp dish that was new ( to me) and 2 desserts.
