Try anything lamb. Loved the chops, the garlic naan and the Gosht Biryani. The land and sauce in the Gosht Biryani was perfect. Also had the sample appetizers, all were very good but I'm still not sure what each item was.

The staff are friendly and attentive, and the ambience is dated but pleasant. The food, however, is way overpriced and . . . not good. I had the worst chicken korma of my life here. Chicken korma is always sweet, whether made with almonds or coconut, and the garamasala adds a lovely complement. This korma was not remotely sweet or... More

We ate the lunch buffet here while at a conference at the nearby Omni Shoreham. The buffet featured a surprisingly good selection of Indian cuisine to choose from, ranging from meat and vegetable curries to tandoori chicken. A vegetarian was dining with our group and she was also pleased with the varied selections. Rajaji's got pretty crowded by noon, but... More

I had a meal with a colleague here while staying at the nearby Marriott Wardman Park. We were a bit sceptical about going in, because the restaurant was almost completely empty at 9pm. We still went in though, and had a very nice meal. I and a prawn dish with a creamy curry sauce and my colleague had chicken with... More

The lunch buffet was unexpected and quite good. There was a good selection of vegetarian and meat options. The salad was a little sad. The dessert was very good. The naan is brought to you table, so it is fresh and warm. The service is decent. Given the buffet quality I am sure the menu items are good.

I ate Indian food for the first time. It was pretty good. My chicken was a little dry, but it had good flavor. The service was so-so, but the prices were reasonable. The bread sampler was super.

This restaurant turned into second choice as it was empty on a Saturday night. Who knew most places needed a reservation even with a early time. Anyway, this place is huge but decor is old, dated, undesirable and hoped food would not reflect that and it didn't. Service is excellent! Had Boti kabob as an appetizer and it was very... More

They've got a dish--the Murgh Makhani--that's delectable. And the service is friendly and funny. Bishnu has got a great way about him. Charming ambiance, as well. This is a nice place to spend an evening.
