Excellent food. We tried the vegetable samosa, lentil soup, garlic nan, tandoori chicken breast, and marinated chick peas. All was really great quality. Very generous portions as well. We will come back.

In D.C. with my lady and our service dog. First night we wanted something different and as we both love Indian food, we chose Jyoti. Got an outside table to watch the carnival go by - that being all the different people on the street....More

Delicious Indian food and good service. There's an area for larger groups on the second floor. Parking was impossible, but that's always the case for dinner in Adams Morgan.

I checked out 6 Indian restaurants and Jyoti was clearly the best in Washington DC. The food was very authentic and the curry dishes were perfect. I suggest eating outside as the view from there is very good. The waiter was also pleasant to talk...More

Excellent quality of food and service! The curry I had was pleasantly spicy and easy on the stomach. The portions are very good given the prices.

We ordered take out from Jyoti. Good food! Esp nice lamb biryani and dal. Service to pick up the order was disorganized and could be smoother.

I absolutely loved this place when I visited. I had the lamb vindaloo which was spicy. I was asked several times if I was sure if I wanted it. I don't regret it because it tasted delicious and the spice didn't overpower the dish.

I had dinner inside with a friend. They also have a patio area. The lamb nilgiri korma was excellent. The service was good as well. I wish they had a larger beer selection but I'm pretty sure we will be coming back to this place...More

If you´re looking for a well located restaurant with a nice terrace in the famous 18th street in Adam Morgan neighborhood, this might be the place. Nice (although not astonoshing) Indian food, at reasonable prices.
