Thanks for the review! India Grill has been making good, reliable Indian food for years--I had my first meal there over ten years ago, at the old location down the Pike. I stopped in a couple of weeks ago for the buffet and was pleasantly surprised--the veg dishes seemed even better, tasting as close to those I've had in India as any in the DC area. I also like the makhani dishes, and they're best when ordered "hot". Based on your review, I'll definitely try the lamb rogan josh.

Like you, my favorite Indian is Heritage India--far and away the best Indian I've had, including my many trips to India--followed by Passage to India. But India Grill is the best in Rockville and seems to have gotten better.


You should try out one of the southern Indian vegetarian places in Langley Park, Udupi Palace and Woodland. They're out in the ghetto, I know. But look at this masala dosa! http://flickr.com/photos/synaesthesia/42000812/ It was pretty tasty.


I love that oh so British recipe link : "cook the lamb until it is lovely and tender".
Well, the lamb looks lovely now.....must be ready!


If you ever want to try another really yummy indian place, try Bombay Curry Company on Mt. Vernon Avenue, it's in the little shopping center beneath the Calvert highrise apartment building. The vindalu is excellent.


Jamie, I love the South Indian veg places in Langley Park. My wife expecially loves the Sunday buffet at Udupi Palace.

I love the India Grill! I was actually just trying to find their menu online so I could place an order, and laughed when I saw your url come up on my search. My husband and I have been eating there for years. The owner is really nice, the food is tasty, and I've always appreciated the way they ask how you want the food spiced too. Back when I still ate meat, I loved their Keema Naan. You should try it if you like lamb.


I have been going to India Grill for over 7 years now and it is my favorite restaurant of all time. I used to be all about the Malia Kofta, however I have recently switched to Navrattan Korma. Yum! That and some meat samosas.... mmmm... I know what I'm getting for dinner!

You can sit outside when there is nice weather and the staff really gets to know you. They pretty much have my dish memorized. ;)

I visited India Grill over the weekend with my boyfriend. We both had the lunch buffet and a couple of drinks. The bill came to $26.99. That is ridiculous!!!
