What They're Saying



A lot of Indian restaurants have opened here in recent years, and most are known more for low prices than for the quality or variety of their cooking. It's a treat to run across an exception. Dishes of India is inexpensive but with cooking that's a cut above most of the competition. The credit goes to chef Ramanand Bhatt; during his 15 years of cooking in the area, he has run the kitchens at Rajajee in DC and Haandi in Falls Church and Bethesda.

I always look forward to going to Dishes of India. One of my favorite local restaurants. I even love the aromas which meet you at the door. It's a very friendly, welcoming place. Naresh, one of the owners, always greets you warmly, and we visit regularly, he sincerely asks about how things are going for me and my family. He goes out of his way to be sure that you are happy with your meal and enjoy the whole experience. I enjoy the quiet, peaceful, unrushed atmosphere.
