We went here after an appointment I had at Belle Haven Chiropractic, which is down the street. We went because of the reviews on Yelp. From the outside, it's not that impressive but looks are deceiving. Inside, stairs down lead to a wonderfully romantic basement...More

I've eaten at Dishes of India many times and never had a bad experience. Last Sunday, I went there for their buffet and it was outstanding. If I had one complaint it would be that they don't have a sampler plate option, where one can...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...More

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
