Operated by the same owner behind Bethesda's Passage to India, Spice Xing is an exploration of contemporary Indian food. The lunch buffet offers more traditional Indian-American favorites, but the dinnertime menu spans the subcontinent and finds bits of inspiration from world cuisines. Dining under colorful silks, pair a signature cocktail—like the tamarind margarita—with chicken kathi rolls and anise-flavored seared scallops to start. Then move on to an entree like sag gosht (lamb simmered with spinach, fenugreek, and ginger) or malai kofta (cheese dumplings in a mace-cardamom gravy), finishing with marinated tandoori pineapple.
Such dishes have not escaped notice: Spice Xing has received widespread acclaim.
- "Sudhir Seth is the man behind one of the area’s best Indian restaurants. This is his more affordable place, where he allows his kitchen to loosen up a bit. At both, the spicing in the gravies ... is painstakingly conjured and complex." – Washingtonian magazine
- "A diner can point pretty much anywhere on this menu and hit a winner, be it chicken draped in a creamy, coconut-laced curry; shrimp electrified with vinegar and red chilies; or lamb bedded on greens spiked with mustard oil." – Washington Post
- "Luscious anise-infused tawa scallops are from French-influenced Pondicherry on South India's east coast. Delicious balchao shrimp packs the chili-vinegar punch of its Portuguese roots. The extraordinary Persian-inspired lamb and apricot stew, salli boti jardaloo, is a triumph of spice blending." – Gazette
