Heritage India Review

You feel like a guest in a foreign land dining at this restaurant: there's incredible attention to detail in everything from the tapestried chairs to the paintings of India and the traditional tandoori and curry dishes. Try the thali platters or more adventurous street-food small plates like spicy bhel puri, puffed rice with mango, or the papri chaat, a piquant potato-chickpea crudité. The malgudi menu opens American palates to the lesser-known dosa crepes and lentil doughnuts found in South India. A sister location in Dupont Circle is similarly popular with bargain diners.

    Go to their other place....

    Heritage India has a 2nd location, on Conn. Ave.(near Dupont Circle), where the food is superb and the bar (yes, the bar!) is exciting and quite popular. Much preferred to Georgetown location. Perhaps the best Indian food in downtown area...but U definitely won't get away with a single $...It's $$-$$$. Worth the expense.
