Ordered their buffet so I was able to try several dishes but not impressed. The butter chicken had more of a tomato flavor to it which was not enjoyable, the Naan was good and was the only saving grace of this place. Yet, Who really goes to spend $13 dollars for a few pieces of Naan. I wouldn't waste my... More

We walked across the street from our hotel and were one of the few dine-in customers. The food was very fresh and well seasoned. The service was fantastic and all the members of our party left the restaurant commenting on how good the food was. The Naan was very good, although not as fluffy as some other Indian restaurants.

Great neighborhood hole in the wall. We always do take out as it's not the most inviting place to eat. Our favorite is the chicken roganjosh Authentic, reasonable, Pay cash and there is a discount.

Nice lunch buffet and friendly people. Worth going to if you are in the Crystal City area and is within walking distance from many of the local hotels.

My colleague and I were on a business trip in DC and looking for some authentic food that we can't get in our home state. I have to admit we were a little intimidated to enter the restaurant since the entrance was confusing and there was lots of construction around it. We were greeted by friendly staff and delicious food.... More

Just a block away from large crystal city hotels lies an innocuous Indian takeout and sit down restaurant that is not much to look at it but serves up spicy and generously portion Indian food. The cleaning fluid is a little overpowering but the food is spicy and the service good. A good selection of beverages is available. Visit KD... More

Amazingly good Indian food. Excellent service. We ordered take out and were absolutely blown away by the food quality.

I'll be straight with you, some people would not like the small size of the dining space or decor, but the food can't be beat when it comes to true Indian cuisine, the best I've had in the DC area and at a fraction of the cost. They do have take out and delivery. The foods were freshly made, breads... More

We recently did a complete kitchen remodel, to the point where we had no kitchen for weeks. We ate a lot or takeout, and this was a big favorite. To the point where the kitchen is done and we still will get takeout on occasion.

First, my compliments to the staff, they are very attentive to say the least. Very nice people. There is a RARE lunch buffet at this establishment which is quite good. I'd say though if you are looking for a perfect, trendy place, this isn't it. This restaurant exists to cook good food and provide good service it seems. They aren't... More
