Washingtonian combed the Washington D.C. area for the best places to eat for less than $25 per person as part of its May issue. The magazine’s food critics named a Cameron Station neighborhood Indian restaurant London Curry House to its 44 best places to eat in a large group.
The Washington Post’s Tom Sietsma reviewed this hidden gem when it opened. The restaurant is located off the main roads, tucked in residential Cameron Station, and nestled in between townhomes and Ben Brenman Park.
Here’s what Washingtonian had to say about London Curry House
With its ornate chandeliers, starched tablecloths, and paprika-red valances, this 125-seat dining room is among the biggest, and most opulent, settings on this list. The food can be equally impressive. Biryanis, served in copper pots, are revealed from beneath their cover of naan at the table. Curries tend to be vibrantly spiced, and salads—such as the cool mix of puffed rice and tamarind known as bhel puri—are well balanced and full of texture. One good way to sample everything: the lavish lunch buffet, $11.99 during the week and $13.99 on weekends.
