This restaurant seems to be in business to just make money by not serving quality/tasty food and serving less portion. This is truly disrespect to Indian cuisine. Either they don't have a good chef or they want to do business in this way. Quantity of any of the items weren't sufficient for a family of (2+2). I felt like someone... More

This is a neighborhood restaurant so we eat here frequently...usually takeout. But we are NEVER disappointed. My go-to dishes that I would recommend to anyone are Palak Paneer (spinach based dish) and onion kulcha (naan). One order of each is enough for two people but we usually get another main course that gives us variety for dinner and provides ample... More

The buffet here is great if you like Indian food. The service though is fantastic and the people that work there really care about your experience.

I used to LOVE this place. It was awesome for about 15 years, But a couple of years ago, it started to change. The service is still fantastic and the staff are so friendly, but... who's doing the cooking? I thought it might have been a temporary thing. Maybe the cook is overseas? Maybe someone new ran the kitchen today?... 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 excellent selection of fresh entrees and side dishes and dessert along with warm complementary naan,... 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 not mushy, spices are just right. Buffet on weekend lunches - check the options before... More

Friendly staff with pretty bland food for my taste. My friends who prefer non spicy food loved it . Do not ask for customizations to your food, they will screw it up. It's pretty good environment and will go back again if I I have to host guests who cannot take spicy food

i love this place. Some of the best food outside of India. Also, I feel like I am among family here as it is owned by the Bhatt family and all the people who work here are amazing. Highly reccommend

The restaurant is much better than it looks. We were there for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The service was great too. It is a place without any pretension but delivering what they promise.

I visited Dishes of India 18 Nov 16 approximately 7pm. The restaurant was pretty full so I chose to take my food to go. My order was taken promptly and it took about 30 mins which was appropriate for what I ordered. The food was very delicious and I couldn't have enjoyed it any better. The customer service was great... More
