Passage to India

I wanted a nice place to take my friend out for a dinner so I took the suggestion of the Washingtonian, which lists this place as one of the areas best 100 restaurants.


Everything came in tiny portions without any marvelous flavor to compensate. The dishes were neutered and bland compared to my meals at Minerva, Upudi, Woodlands, and even Raaga, at 2x+ the price. The only highlights were the whole wheat layered mint naan and condiment tray.

Our entrees were tamarind shrimp and black peas with white and red pumpkin in curry.

Sure, they may have specialties, but nothing was highlighted as such and everything on the menu should be decent right??

Somehow the owners think that serving everything in fine dining style makes the food tasty. Not. Perhaps it does if it selects for an audience with poor taste. Remind me once again not to trust the Washingtonian. Always start with Chow for criticism.
