An insider on Capitol Hill recommended we go to Aatish after seeing the senate and house in session as it was late and we wanted to walk somewhere near the Capitol. It was Valentine's Day and my daughter and I were given long stemmed roses which was a lovely touch. Food was delicious, served quickly and was on the mild... More

I ate here many times when I lived on the Hill, but the standards of the food have fallen, and even more alarmingly, they ran my credit card twice and inserted a false bill on my account. I would avoid this establishment.

It's an especially good deal if you pick up a Groupon (50% off currently available). Had the Chicken Masala, rice, and nann.

We tried this restaurant since it was an walking distance from the hotel where we stayed on capitol hill but that was a mistake. The food was between poor and average. We tried the butter naan, Malai kofta and Paneer Mutter. Kofta curry was extremely sour and paneer mutter was average.Even the naan breads were far from average.

We arrived around 2 pm on a Monday. I didnt realize until after we arrived and were seated that they closed at 2:30 and then reopened at 5 pm (I never saw this before, so this was my mistake). Because of this late arrival, I felt badly placing an order but they said we could come in and eat. I... More

Absolutely terrible place. We went there as a group of five. Ordered samosas and mango lassis as starters. The samosas arrived which clearly looked re-fried. After that we wanted to start with two entrées and naans and order more later. The waitress, who had no smile on her face, showed us the menu card where it was written in the... More

Ordered in so I can't speak about the property. Phone ordering was easy, food came in a prompt timeframe and was delicious. Orders over $20 had no delivery fee. Would have liked the driver to come into the lobby though (esp. since it was raining)--i had to go out and look for his car. Also wish the chicken makhani had... More

DC has a ton of options for Indian food. So, if you want something fancy, there is a place for you - but this is not it. Located in an area that is replete with international dining options, Aastish is a good place for a quick lunch alone or with friends. The buffet options are somewhat limited. In addition to...

I've been here three times, whenever I have been in DC. The interior is pleasant but not fancy. Sevice is friendly although last night the manager tried a little too hard to sell an appetizer assortment to my group. Most importantly, the food is reliably good. Lamb with spinach, eggplant, salmon masala, spinach paneer were all satisfying. The lamb might... More

If you are in D and arecraving Indian food, take the dollars and throw it in the Potomac or give it to some needy person. Trust me, it is a better thing to do than order from this place. The only good thing about this place was that they delivered. The food sucked, I have eaten a lot of bad... More
