Do not let the fact that the restaurant is located in a strip mall or the interior design of the entrance influence your decision to eat here. Once you park in the strip mall and walk through the front door you are surrounded by wall...More

The dress code is casual but the experience is five-star! The location can be a bit deceiving as this restaurant is located in a strip mall. As soon as I opened the door I was greeted by delicious smells and a well dressed and accommodating...More

We went here after an appointment I had at Belle Haven Chiropractic, which is down the street. We went because of the reviews on Yelp. From the outside, it's not that impressive but looks are deceiving. Inside, stairs down lead to a wonderfully romantic basement...More

I've eaten at Dishes of India many times and never had a bad experience. Last Sunday, I went there for their buffet and it was outstanding. If I had one complaint it would be that they don't have a sampler plate option, where one can...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...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...More
