Could not have been a tastier, more attractively presented meal with attentive service in a nice setting -- where you can easily hear your dining companions (rare at many restaurants).

This neighborhood restaurant serves the most interesting Indian dishes in Washington. Coorgi Murg is fabulous, but you can't go wrong with any of the main dish courses--and there are many delicious vegetarian options as well.
