Numerous dishes that are apparently non-dairy.

The management seems truly to know what is non-dairy, unless they are using margarine, which can include dairy. The restaurant has numerous non-dairy tasty buffet items, which includes a very tasty dosa brought to the table.

The ownership is different than the Langley Park, Md., Woodlands, which on my last visit a few years ago seemed to have fewer non-dairy buffet options than this Jermantown Rd., Fairfax location.

The management and staff is very nice.

Pros: Many tasty non-dairy buffet options., Nice management and staff., Curiously nice oasis near Fairfax City.

This a completely vegetarian Indian restaurant ironicly right next to a meat shop and deli. My husband and I live two hours from Woodlands but it's more than worth the travel and gas. The food is like magic and we moan with pleasure and grin like idiots while eating. The Kofta, which are spiced potato 'meatballs' in a tomato curry sauce sprinkled with fresh parsley and cilantro, are so marvelous the English language suddenly seems clumsy and incompetent and falls hopelessly short. The samosas are applause worthy, they are potatoes, peas, coriander, and turmeric in a deep fried triangular pastry served with chili-tamarind sauce. The coconut rice is over priced but still very hard not to get and we're always trying to figure out what the little balls in it are. They don't taste like peppercorns but they are about that size, whatever they are they're good. The waiter seems deeply depressed and never smiles but is not rude. The restaurant is relatively small and cute and always has lovely Indian music playing. The menu is a very good size and the portions are generous but not ridiculous. Even the fried food is never greasy and you always feel good when you leave. It's mostly Indian people eating here so that tells me it's probably pretty authentic cooking. It's not vegan friendly, there's only about two dishes without dairy but that is what Indian food is known for. I introduced my husband to this place and he'd never tried Indian food before, but now this is where he demands to be brought every year for his birthday. Even my four year old loves it! Can't say enough good things about this place. It had better always stay in business.

Pros: Magical food, Pretty healthy , Food doesn't take long to come
Cons: Depressed waiter, In ugly shopping center, Needs to be closer to where I live!

This place is the best all vegetarian Indian restaurant in the area. They are always happy to work with you to make a dish vegan if it is possible. The food is always delicious and everything is very reasonably priced. It is located in the strip mall next to a K-Mart super store which is easy to locate from the highway.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Vegan friendly

Pretty Good Food

I enjoyed the buffet; not a large selection, but more than enough me (perhaps 10 dishes). Good value, tasty food.

Pros: Tasty food, good value, friendly staff
Cons: Only if you don't like spicy food.
