For a holiday lunch we opted for this place because we wanted something local before touring Fort McHenry. This is an intimate working establishment that specializes in Indian and Tibetan food, and lunch is set up for the Lunch Buffet. A dinner menu is available at lunch, but the most economical choice appeared to us to be the Lunch Buffet.... More

When in the area, this is the place you will find me. The Kumari Sizzler Tandoori Mix Grill and Chicken Korma are my favorite dishes. The Korma sauce is not the bland sauce you may find else where. It has great flavor!

Small little place in a shopping center, but their food is great! Their lunch buffet is only $10, and has a good variety for the price. Nan is yummy as well.

$10 all you can eat. Hot fresh buttery naan. Tikka masala, yummy rice pudding dessert and the hot chia tea. Everything is fresh and hot. Service is friendly and fast. Small dining area so you may have to wait if you go during lunchtime rush. Plenty of parking as it's located in a strip mall and they take cash or... More

I stopped in with a friend from out of town who "always eats out" and wanted something other than the usual Chipotle. I decided to try this place on the recommendation of a friend who swears by it and we were not disappointed. We really enjoyed the Chicken Tikka Masala and Garlic Naan. It was flavorful, fresh and reasonably priced.... More

The buffet is small, but they had maybe 10 dishes available. Three of us ate there, and all enjoyed our meals. My coworkers found the Nepali tea to be tasty.

We stopped in mid-afternoon after a day of playing tourist at Fort McHenry. We were actually headed for Subway and then saw this place and suddenly Subway seemed like a crime. We did not make a mistake. The menu looked so good that we ordered four dishes to share for two people. Everything was delicious. I was giddy the next... More

my wife and i enjoy Indian food on occasion, and this place offers a very good buffet (even on weekends) for a very reasonable price. Great variety for the occasional vegan (which my wife is), not very spicey (which was good for my wife, but i could have enjoyed a bit more...) very small setting (less than 10 tables), service...

Kumari is my go to Indian place in Mount Vernon. The lunch buffet has a wide array of staples like tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala and of course the chai tea. The staff is friendly and the interior has a great feel with authentic decor. Out of all the Indian restaurants in the Mount Vernon area, Kumari is my favorite.

Thank Matt J
