Welcome to Jaipur, a Royal Indian Cuisine. Known as the Pink City, Jaipur is one of the jewels of Rajasthan, a northern Indian province west of New Delhi. The cuisine we present is rooted in the rich heritage of India it is a combination of subtle tastes where the flavors are as varied as India’s climate and as exotic as India's people. Fragrant, pungent and warm spices from all over India are delicately blended to create the dishes. The blending and preparation of spices is a centuries-old craft and indispensable to Indian cuisine. The decor includes rows of beads adorned with brilliantly colored birds and a contingent of elaborately dressed puppets, stunning paintings by Indian Artists and the interior design in accordance with the principles of Rajisthans Royal Palace.
Our Dishes are authentically prepared in our restaurant, just as we would in our own home. Enjoy our hospitality, and consider our home yours!

My friends and I came for dinner on a Tuesday night. We were immediately seated. The food was excellent and the waiters were very attentive. I ordered the goan fish curry which has a good heat to it and so many delicious spices and herbs that I can’t replicate. My other friend ordered the salmon malabai which had a wonderful heat and savoriness to it. My other friend ordered a lamb dish (sorry I can’t remember it’s name) and they made it not spicy at all for her request. I don’t think my water glass ever went empty because a waiter was always keeping it full. The rice pudding was the least favorite part of the meal - it had great flavor but not a lot of rice. It was mostly milk. Other than that, we had a lovely time and are more than happy to return for another lovely meal!

Good food, relaxed atmosphere, and quiet enough to have conversation.
The food was very good, and the portions reasonable. Our party of 4 shared 3 appetizers (Vegetable Samosa, Chat Papdi, and Sabz Bhajiya). Entrees were Gosht Saagwala, Murgh Saagwala, Gosht Vindaloo, and Biryani, all at medium heat, and Garlic Naan. I would have liked my dish a little spicier, but not having been there for a while, medium was safe.
We had an early reservation (5:30), as one person had to be somewhere else at 7pm. They weren't busy. In fact, we had to wait for them to unlock the door, as the restaurant doesn't open until 5:30. The wait staff seemed hesitant to approach the table; I'm all for them not hanging around, but I also don't expect to have to flag someone down to take my order. This also meant we didn't leave until almost 7. One thing I disliked, was that the staff took the leftovers that were to be packed to go, back into the kitchen. Two of us got each other's leftovers (as they were both in curried spinach, it was difficult to immediately tell which dish was which). This wouldn't have happened if they had brought out containers.

Maybe they have different management but I feel like the class of the restaurant has lowered. Their phone rings loudly off the hook in two places simultaneously, and then manager picks up and also speaks super loudly like he is in the middle of the market. I come to listen to my date/partner/friend and hear a little bit of soft music on the background, instead we were constantly overpowered by phone and loud speaking. I love their food and decor and the waiters are all great but I don’t want to go back to feel like I’m in the middle of bazaar again.

We are frequent diners at this great local restaurant but for this visit, the service was off from the usual attentiveness. We waited a long time for our wine, there was nothing offered before our entrees arrived, we received a check for another table while we were eating and then our server basically disappeared and we were helped by the staff bussing our table for the remainder of the evening.

Food is still very good but service was wanting.

We are both lovers of Indian cuisine and were pleasantly surprised to have discovered this restaurant. Food and service were outstanding. It is kid-friendly (at least at 6:30 when we were there. We will return and tell friends.

We really enjoyed Jaipur Royal Indian Cuisine! This was our first time dining there, and it did not disappoint! The food is delicious, and the staff were all very friendly and attentive. Since we ordered appetizers (great samosas!), there was plenty of our tasty entrees left over to take home and enjoy again. We will definitely return!

We had a fabulous experience. We found Jaipur on Open Table and decided to reserve for dinner. The waitstaff were very friendly and attentive. We even chatted with the owner, who was nice and engaging. The food was delicious. Good portion sizes to share. We will definitely return.

Food flavor was good, but very spicy, even though we requested mild. The chicken tikka was too dry, the shrimp dish was dry and overdone. The vegetable korma haa a lot of sauce, but very little vegetables. The rice was way overdone and crispy. We asked for new rice, and was told it was all like that. It was disappointing.

We came to Jaipur on Mother's Day. Despite having a reservation, we had to wait half an hour before our table was ready. This is an anomaly - we have been to Jaipur many times before and have never had to wait until now. The food is always good. I wholeheartedly recommend Jaipur, with the caveat that if it's a holiday, expect to wait a while.

There are many Indian restaurants in northern Virginia and we have been to many of them. We consider Jaipur the best and our experience this past week did nothing to change our mind. Service is friendly and punctual, the ambience is excellent and you can converse easily even if Jaipur has a crowd. Finally, the food is superb and is the closest in terms of taste to the Indian cuisine we experienced while in India. Our only minor complaint is that the Jaipur’s chefs are reserved in the way they add spice to their dishes. We like a bit more spice. But we’ll be back many more times.
