Good Indian Restaurant??

lachrimae7 May 31, 2007 02:07 PM

I'm looking for a really good Indian restaurant in the Gaithersburg/Germantown/Rockville area. Anyone? Of if I have to go a little further than that, I'm willing as well. Please let me know. Thanks!!!

    I really enjoy Heritage in DC. There is a restaurant in Dupont Circle and I believe another one in Glover Park

      In Kentlands its Tandoori Nights. A bit further south in Bethesda its Haandi and Passage to India (search board for recs).

          dinwiddie, i gotta tell ya, i went to BB for my first time this past sunday for the buffet and I was a bit underwhelmed. that is not to say the food was bad, it wasnt, but it is DEFINITELY not as good as Minerva's buffet

          I agree - Passage to India in Bethesda and Bombay Bistro in Rockville are the places to go in Monkey County.

          PTI is more upscale for a special occasion place, and has a menu that truly spans the breadth of Indian cuisine, but is correspondingly more expensive.

          BB is more like your neighborhood Indian place - all of the usual standards, including excellent tandoori and fish.

            Ok, maybe we'll try Passage to India after all!. Is this the right one? 4931 Cordell Ave, Bethesda? Thanks!!!!

              I must admit I don't know a whole lot about Indian food, but I went to a Sunday brunch buffet at HAANDI on Fairmont Avenue in Bethesda and sampled a lot -- Yummy! And it was under $15.00, I believe. www.haandi.com

                I really enjoy Haandi and find it is often overlooked for Indian in Bethesda. I agree with the praise for Passage to India, too.

                India Palace in Germantown on Frederick Road is very good.

                  can you tell me where on Frederick Rd it is? What's the closest cross street? Thanks!

                    India Palace is just South of Middlebrook. It's in a shopping center. I think it is called Fox Chapel. There is also very good vegetarian Indian nearby.
