Small, overpriced mango lassi. Delicious vegetable samosa. No papadams. Good chicken makhani. Didn't like paying extra for rice.

What a magical experience--the owner lady greets you and you are enveloped in the deep apricot colors and rich spices and tastes of India. Truly a valued portal where a conversation can take its time. Take a deep breath and have a deep delight. You will be served with old-fashioned courtesy and elegance.

The food is pretty standard, but tastes good. We had the vegetarian dishes and appetizers and they were all uniformly good. It is somewhat pricy for the fare, since the food falls short of being excellent.

As my husband loves spicy food and has to have his fix every few days we decided to try this restaurant as it's a stone's throw from our hotel. We were quite impressed with the 'street food' portion of the menu and sampled a number of those offerings. We did not request extra spicy and were quite surprised at the... More

I come from an Indian family and I eat a lot of home cooked Indian food. I rarely eat out at Indian restaurants because I tend to find them unhealthy - full of cream and oil. Heritage was OK. I had the Aloo Tikki Chaat for an appetizer - very tasty! (Never had this before). Then I had a Roti,... More

Went with party of six. Most were happy with meal, although one missed that white meat chicken had to be requested (for $ 2.00 more) and didn't like what she got. Also didn't like that rice had to be ordered and paid for separately. Service was attentive but not really friendly - not sure if worth the 18% tip that... More

Heritage India, on the second floor, overlooking Wisconsin St., is a good place for Indian fare in Glover Park. Standard menu, good service.

A restaurant named Malgudi HAS to be paid a visit in our book; who doesn't want one's own remembrance of Malgudi Days?! Anyway, after stopping by once and finding it closed, we came by again the next day, for a late breakfast/early lunch. Found out that Heritage India and Malgudi share the same space. Malgudi is a South Indian restaurant,... More

We enjoyed a really good meal here. The Wisconsin Ave. location is lovely, service was attentive, and the food was delicious. We don't get dosas and other South Indian courses in our neck of the woods, so this was a real treat. There seems to be some confusion about the name: this restaurant is actually called Malgudi, but Malgudi shows... More

Price was also reasonable. We liked the rich variety of dishes on two separate menus, one hot and spicy from south India and the other mild from northern India. Ideal for a group who have vegetarians with them.
