We have been eating brunch at Woodlands for decades. It has been consistently excellent and the choices vary from week to week. The other thing I have always found interesting is the broad cross section of the population this strictly vegetarian restaurant attracts. Of course there are the Indian Subcontinentals. In addition there are the new wave of vegetarians, the... More

We love Woodlands. They have great food and service. While their buffet is wildly popular, I am a fan of the regular menu. Do not miss treating yourself to one of their incredible dosas, so perfectly crisp and buttery. Yum! While there are other good choices in the neighborhood, especially for non-veg, you cannot beat Woodlands for consistently exceptional food.

I went to this place when was traveling to Washington DC. There are not many 100% vegetarian restaurants in DC. I remembered going to this place in past and visited again. Same yummy taste and chef was very friendly that he made Jain Chhole Bhatura that was mouth watering. This is jain friendly place.

Woodlands is an outstanding restaurant that specializes in South Indian cuisine but offers dishes from other regions as well. The weekend buffet is the best value because of the great variety of dishes to sample. My favorites are the curries and the street food. But the masala dosas, Indian crepes stuffed with potato and vegetables, are also excellent. I have... More

We were visiting DC and staying in Maryland. With two senior citizens visiting from India, we needed an Indian restaurant. This place was great. They opened at 5 pm for dinner and we were there just after that. The food was fresh, the taste was very good although quantities were a bit less. They didn't have any naan, a bit... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years now. The buffet is very good and the number of food items is much more than what you will find in other Indian restaurants. The food is delicious and this is our favorite Indian restaurant in the area.

We went to Woodlands while visiting my husband's family who live in Silver Springs. His mother had made us a large Indian breakfast, so we weren't very hungry only 2-3 hours later, but they told us it was time for lunch. I went in expecting to get a tea and not much more, and then saw the massive buffet, and... More

...and what a great surprise... i have been driving by it for about a year, without ever even realizing the place was there, possibly because I go by at ungodly hours... I was hungry, did not feel like cooking, so i heeded the advice of The Washingtonian. Splendid: not since the times of Udupi Palace across the street had I... More

Every Saturday and Sunday Woodlands Restaurant has one of the most sumptuous luncheon buffets I've ever seen. It is vegetarian -- after eating there one of my friends couldn't believe it was vegetarian. She didn't even notice there was no meat. The tastes vary from mild and smooth to hot and spicy, from soft and moist to crispy and dry.... More
