Mayur Kabab House

I ordered online for pick up. Food was ready when I got there, but thats where the positive comments stop. I ordered the lamb kabob, which the menu says comes with rice, veggie curry and naan bread. Got to my desk to see super dry lamb and dry rice. There was no veggie curry, although with the quality of the lamb and rice, I am sure it would have been subpar. Also, my friend wanted to buy a side of one of their salads and they refused. Not sure about a restaurant that doesnt want to sell their food...

I don't get the fuss. It's authentic but chicken is very dry.

We tried this restaurant based on the reviews given here and it turned out to be a good decision. It's always a good sign when you see locals eating at a place and there were many here as well as a few tourists like ourselves. Our girls (11 &13) weren't so taken with the place until they had the naan bread. They loved it! My husband and I are big fans of Indian cuisine and this seemed to me very authentic. Some of it was too spicy for our girls but with the naan bread and yogurt, they found things to eat. The people working there were friendly and it was relatively clean. It was the kind of place my husband and I would definitely go back to but maybe without the kids.

My friend and I were blown away by this place! The price has changed and now it's $8 for the lunch buffet but it's definitely worth it! The food is amazingly delicious and you can't beat the value. On top of that, the people are friendly, regardless of the less than attractive atmosphere. A must try!

I love chicken tiki marsala and have tried it in many cities but always come back to Mahur's in DC for this fabulous dish. They truly know what they're doing with this dish and it's addictive once you've had it there. The ambiance is lunch room style and plain tables with close seating but the staff are very friendly and you get a feel that each dish prepared is authentic

The chicken tiki marsala is the best Indian dish in DC.

One of the best authentic Indian spots in town! Excellent brick oven made naan, spicy food, and very friendly staff and owners. 10 minute walk to Mt Vernon Sq., Chinatown, or Metro Center; also on the Circulator line. So, in my opinion it's centrally located. This place gets PACKED from noon until 2pm so I recommend going between 2.15-3p for lunch and anytime thereafter for dinner. It features a $7 lunch/ $8 dinner buffet without a huge selection. But the menu has everything you'd desire. The ambiance isn't the greatest, but you'll be treated to South Asian television programming whilst you eat. The quality and value of the food is what counts!
