It's only OK. They are under new management. Service as not that good until manager stepped in. Food was fine. Worth a try but don't have high expectations until new management gets some run time under their belts.

I visited this restaurant many years ago. I did not think it was good. It was just another mediocre Indian restaurant. When I saw it on Groupon, I decided to revisit. This time I was impressed by the quality of foods and the service. I have been to many Indian restaurants and this is one of the best in the DC area. Foods at Indian restaurants are usually very salty. However, foods at Minerva were not salty. They were very tasty and there was a large selection of foods at the buffet which was reasonably priced. The only thing that my friends and I missed was fresh fruits. If they add fresh fruits to the buffet, we would dine at Minerva often.

The food was excellent and, while there were few other diners, the service personnel were very attentive. We used the Groupon for the buffet. If you do the same, be careful of the rugs adjacent to the steam tables. I, and others, nearly tripped.

This is very authentic Indian food and isn't Americanized-so beware that it is "spicy" and "flavorful" at the same time. We have always found the lunch buffet to have a nice selection of foods--both chicken, lamb, fish and vegetarian. And their breads are always freshly made.

Lovely and varied dinner menu, but the lunch buffet is the best.

From Our Editors

At Minerva Indian Cuisine, each chef tells the story of their hometown through their food. Because they each hail from different regions of India, they cover several culinary styles on a single menu. For example, a section of southern specialties highlights crepes?or dosa?stuffed with fillings such as spinach in masala sauce and chicken. A clay oven cooks the ever-popular tandoori chicken as well as kebabs and lamb chops while assorted kinds of naan arrive in baskets. Meat entrees include fish masala, mutton rogan josh, and chicken vindaloo, but if you want to sample several dishes, then your best option is the buffet. It hosts an impressive spread of sauces, appetizers, main plates, and desserts, and doesn't force you to make a decision, unlike graduating high school.
