Indian
Some say that the Indian cuisine is almost as diverse as the entire European cuisine, because of the four different main regional styles: the North Indian cuisine (the regions Benaras, Kashmir, Mughlai, Punjab and Rajasthan), the South Indian cuisine (regions Andhra, Kannada, Kerala and Tamil), East Indian cuisine (regions Assamese and Bengali) and Western Indian cuisine (regions Gujarat, Maharashtrian and Malwani). The northern part of India is mostly rural, although it contains large cities such as Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta, thus its cuisine is more agricultural than anything, wheat being a primary constituent of this region’s dishes. Southern regions however tend to be more exotic, spicy in their dishes and rice is a constant ingredient in their food. To give the taste of their main dishes, North Indians use onions and coriander whilst southerners use a more exotic coconut base for their dishes. Bon Appetite

    All the chicken dishes were excellent especially the biryani. The veggie sampler plate was not as strong as the dishes were a little boring and bland. But, great service and overall quality was great. Would definitely recommend.

    It was very very quiet and very cold inside. The food was rather sweet all around. Portions were good, lassi was good, service fine but one guy serving all the customers meant you might wait some time if you needed something.

    We eat at Jyoti every time we're in DC visiting our daughter (at GWU) - at least four times a year. My wife and I both spent time in DC and Adams-Morgan restaurants were favorite destinations: Jyoti has made it to the top of our all-time favorites list (joining the long-departed and much missed Omega, in Columbia Road, a Cuban place always rumored to have been where the CIA hatched the Bay of Pigs plan.) Everything is delicious at Jyoti, located on 18th just below Columbia in the heart of one of DC's great neighborhoods) , starting with the samosas and portions are extremely generous without being too much.

    Had a delicious dinner. Only a slight knock as we tried to order a drink that wasn't one of the listed "specialty" drinks - they wouldn't do it. The half-price bottle of wine was nice, just not the wine listed. In any event, the food and being able to sit outside far outweighed any negatives (as we really went for the food and not the drink).
