Best vindaloo in DC area?

My husband's craving vindaloo, but so far we've been really unimpressed with most of the Indian places we've tried out. Can anyone recommend a place with really good vindaloo -- either in DC or NoVa would be easiest for us to get to.
Thanks so much!

  1. What places have you tried and found lacking? What are you looking for in a vindaloo that you haven't already found?

    It sounds like you know what you are looking for, probably better than I since I rarely order it. I know it is on the menu at Bombay Club in DC, and it is the kind of dish they probably execute seriously well. If you are looking for a specific flavor profile, then it might help to talk to the server about it . Their description of the dish can be found on the website:

    1. Bombay Curry Company in DelRay has a good version - if you go get the Tandoori wings as an appetizer

      Bombay Club version is also good - more complex flavor but a bit less spicy

      Haven't been impressed with the Indique/Indique Heights version
