I still remember the skeptical looks my children gave me the first time I announced we were going out for Indian food. Always adventurous eaters, somehow my husband and I had overlooked introducing our children to this wonderful cuisine earlier in their lives. We have now made up for lost time!
I have a friend who immigrated here from India and figured she would be my best source to find a close-by, high quality Indian restaurant. She told me of a couple, but said her favorite was Angeethi, located on Elden Street in Herndon, Virginia.
Fast forward a couple of years and I would say this restaurant is the number one most requested in our family.
If you have not had a chance to try it, I would highly recommend it. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable, the food is wonderful and the staff is attentive. The clientele is a mix of couples out on dates and extended families meeting for dinner. The restaurant can accommodate fairly large parties.
My husband and I also hosted a dinner party that, unfortunately, fell on a weekend when my daughter had a soccer tournament. Rather than miss her games, we had the dinner catered by Angeethi. It was a big success!
I was recently told by my son that they have opened a restaurant in Leesburg,VA and I just saw on their website that they have one in Bethesda, MD, too.
So if you are looking for something a little different to do for dinner, head over to downtown Herndon and give Angeethi a try--I don't think you will be disappointed!
BTW, they deliver, too!
