As someone who has a deep appreciation for fine Indian food and having dined at some of the highest rated Indian restaurants in London, I whole-heartedly recommend Taj of India. The quality of service was outstanding, as was the meal. I ordered the Chicken Korma and Chicken Tikka Masala, two of my favorites, and I was blown away by the flavor. My boyfriend and I also ordered the Peshwari Naan, and we were literally in awe of how great it tasted (seriously, it's $3.50, so there is no reason why you shouldn't try this). We were pleased with the pricing as well, considering it is located on the main strip in the heart of Georgetown. This restaurant is an absolute must for locals and tourists alike.

5 DIAMONDS for the CAPITAL GRILLE!Was a regular here from about 95-04' till I moved to FL. Have a stack of receipts from here an inch thick! AWSOME & SUPERB dining and waitstaff. Georgeous mahogany decor. Fantastic wine storage room. Awsome aged steaks. Try their house Martini, the STOLI-DOLI. Valet parking or 2 blocks from the Metro. The only kids I have seen in here were well behaved Senators children. Proper attire please! Best calamari anywhere! Sam's mashed potatoes too! I often eat at the newly opened JAX FL location at St Johns Town Center. Tysons Corner on Beltway in DC too. see their website.
Hands down the best Indian restaurant in the district! It's similar to the Indian food in London which is rich, creamy, and sweet. The butter chicken here is awesome the best I've ever had and I'm always on the hunt for sweet, creamy butter chicken. I'm not the greatest fan of spice. It's not authentic Indian, not as spicy because it caters to people with a low spice threshold but who enjoy Indian food. Samosas are fresh, naan is awesome and butter chicken, butter chicken, butter chicken!!!
One of the best (if not the best) Indian restaurants that I've been to in the Washington DC metro area. Leaps and bounds better than the chain Indian restaurants (eg Tandoori Nights; Delhi Dhaba). Some of my primary recommendations would include: Malai Kofta (vegetarian meatballs in a light cream/tomato sauce); Lamb Briyani (a savory rice dish with tender bits of lamb) and Tandori chicken. The dishes combine a unique array of flavors and spice to create a top knotch Indian dining experience.
I have never eaten in the actual restaurant itself, I have only called in for take out. This is the best Indian food in DC in my opinion. If it tastes as good as it does with it being take out I can only imagine how good it is in the place itself. I always get this chicken and spinach dish. They also have really good naan.
I have been there a few times when visiting DC - that place always seems well visited and I've never been disappointed with the food. Last time I was there I got Pappadums with dips for a starter - they were excellent with three different dips (chilli dip, something very good with pickled onions and fresh coriander
I have been to this place twice when staying in Georgetown. The service is very good, personal and good. The food is good, I have eaten Indian food all over the world and this is not the best Indian but it is good and the service and the atmosphere is great. Their "Chat Papri" is excellent appetizer and the naan.
Coming to DC a few weeks after my trip to India I found myself increasingly craving Indian food. A friend took me to Taj. We had the chaat papri and some papd as appetizers as starters and shared the Taj Thali. The papdom was pretty amazing, crispy and full of flavor. Off the Thali the chicken makhani was nice
I went to Washington to see the cherry blossoms. On the last of my stay we decided to search for Indian restaurants in Georgetown. We came upon Taj and based on the menu we decided to try. It was a very good choice. Food was good, service was great and although not a very big restaurant you felt comfortable
We're not the greatest experts on Indian food, but Taj served some of the best we've eaten. Not the best ... Handi in Falls Church takes that prize ... but it was still wonderful. Nothing fancy about this little place on M Street. Inexpensive as Georgetown restaurants go, and tend to get crowded very early.
