Good Indian restaurant. Attention is good, nevertheless service should be quicker since there were only two people in the restaurant. The food was average, nothing spectacular.

Quicker-than-quoted delivery (to the Residence Inn Arlington Courthouse), and tasty food (chicken curry with rice and naan).

We have been going to Delhi Dhaba for many years. I always go for the butter chicken with naan. Seating arrangements have been updated gradually. Today, we had the weekend buffet lunch on their outdoor patio which was a nice experience. The staff is helpful, friendly and unassuming. The freshly made naan, be it of the butter, garlic, or roti... More

We've been eating here together for over 10 years and my husband since it opened in the 1990s. This is true, authentic Indian fare served by caring people. We carry out a lot, but when you eat there you will realize that this is on the par of any Indian restaurant no matter what the price.

If you miss Indian food, as we did, this is the place to go to. Not very spicy, more like home cooking. The ambiance makes you feel you are in some mid Punjabi restaurant in Delhi. You can get Kingfisher beer here, at an American price. Most of the staff were Nepalese ... very friendly. The yellow dal costs as... More

If you want to tease your palate with various sensations, then the cuisine offered by this restaurant will consistently keep you elated with its many Indian dishes. Top it off with ras malai!

We were at the restaurant for lunch. If you're looking for great food at a bargain price in Arlington, Delhi Dhaba is the place to be. The lunch special at $9.95 gets you a chicken, lamb, of beef entree, plus two vegetable sides, rice and a basket of naan bread. The food was absolutely fabulous. Definitely a place to return...

Delhi Dhaba is an Arlington institution that has been around for ages - I don't know if it was once an amazing restaurant or if Americans figured out what Indian food is supposed to taste like, but there's a reason all their press clippings hanging on the wall date to the mid-90s. The food is very very average. I ordered... More

CROOKS! The guys charge your credit card even when they mess up your order, deliver incomplete orders and promise a refund. I ordered food twice from Delhi Dhabha last week. The first time I ordered, I called the establishment back to know the bill amount (so I could tip the delivery guy a 20% in cash) and found the order... More

Our first visit to Washington. Our desire to have Indian food led us to this place. A cute little place with good ambiance. The starter lamb boti kabab was excellent & well presented. Enjoyed the bread basket with traditional dhal tadka. Of course the dessert Ras Mallai was really well done. The staff were very courteous & warm. Enjoyed a... More
