It was a great experience. I read previous reviews re: staff and all I have to say about that is they don't have to be your bffs. They're fine. The food was wonderful and the decor and overall experience were lovely! :)

We love Heritage India for the quality of the food and service. Very good indian food (good selection of both North and South Indian food). Being Indians ourselves, we appreciate having access to this food in DC

What You'll Get

Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the actual location of India remains a mystery. Today's Groupon to Heritage India offers the best lead the world has had in centuries. This Groupon is valid at both the Dupont Circle and Georgetown locations. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get $25 worth of Indian cuisine Sunday–Thursday.
  • For $15, you get $30 worth of Indian cuisine Friday or Saturday.

At Heritage India, passionate cooks create aromatic Indian dishes with exceptionally authentic flavor that won the hearts and tongues of reviewers at The Washingtonian magazine. Heritage India's menu boasts classic Indian dishes such as palak makai—tender green spinach teamed with bright corn in a fresh, herby cream ($10.45 at Georgetown; $12.95 at Dupont Circle), hailed by the Washington Post as quite possibly the best in town. The Dupont Circle location's menu varies slightly from the Georgetown menu, but the attentive chefs at both locations simmer savory lamb chunks in spicy vindaloo sauce ($15.45 at Georgetown; $17.95 at Dupont Circle) and tandoori-baked chicken creations ($13.95 at Georgetown; $15.95 at Dupont Circle) juicy enough to shame a pool party's worth of navel oranges. Each location also serves a variety of savory veggie options, such as baigan mirchi ka salan, a palatable mix of baby eggplants and hot peppers in a sesame-flavored sauce ($10.95 at Georgetown; $13.95 at Dupont Circle).

Both eateries serve up their sumptuous curries in a fine-dining environment accented with chandeliers and elegant wood trim. The owner, the proud proprietor of a successful chain of Indian restaurants in Germany and the Czech Republic, knows that attention to detail—from the graceful décor down to the last spice in the korma—makes Heritage India a refined haven for human diners and sentient wooden boys alike.

About Heritage India

A palate-friendly palace in gold and green, Heritage India is the latest outpost of owner’s globe-spanning career in the hospitality business. Past ornate artwork and an elegant dining room, the head chef draws on the culinary styles of his birthplace. The influence shows in menus of flavorful fusion cuisine, including calamari sautéed with curry leaves and coconut milk; hyderabadi murgh haleem, a dish of chicken, barley, lentils, and spices; and golgappas, a popular street food made of puffed wheat, potato, and chickpeas.
