We were looking for an indian restaurant for dinner in the DC area, so we would not have to go far. We were told of Spice express by 1 of our friend so we went there, expecting high prices, for the convenience of location. We were so pleasantly surprised. The place was very very nice. The prices were really reasonable and the service was quick and friendly. We ordered soup and it came in a BIG bowl, not just coffee cup size. The lassis for the children, were so large that their stomach was so full. My grandson wanted everything on a different plate, and there was no problem with the staff. We had gone early, so there was no problem with seating, but when we left, there was a line to get in.
