t_j, give us a review on indique heights; I've never been, but I'm always looking for good indian food.

hahah. No one would willingly go into Rockville to 'hang-out.' But there are some good eats to be had. I guarantee it.

So, as it turns out I went to Indique not the Heights. The food was quite good. I was with 3 Indians and they all said the food was good. I had a fish dish that was very nice and the Naan was good too. The service wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. My main quible with the place was that it was loud sitting outside. I thought by 7:30 it would have chilled out as far as cars but they were still zooming and honking through the dinner. All in all I enjoyed it. We finished the evening with beers at Aroma across the street.

The new Rockville "towncenter" is pretty cool. They have several new restaurants including a good Spanish tapas place. Also they have live music in the plaza in the evenings.

I stand corrected. I agree, the new town center is very nice. Bombay bistro is like 2 minutes from there. Good Indian food.

Indique Heights is an expansion location of Indique in Friendship Heights, right above the metro station, for those who were sort of asking.

Glad you enjoyed the original Indique. Whenever I'm in that neighborhood I go for Dino nearby. I've been meaning to try Palena, but I'm waiting until someone else is paying

So, I went to Wok-n-Roll, as recommended yesterday. The place was packed at about 7PM. My gf and I sat at the sushi counter, but we had to order with the waitress. Why can't they just have one of those ordering slips where you fill in how many of each type of sushi that you want? Needless to say, the whole ordering process took too long. As for the sushi, it was okay. It wasn't very fresh, but you can't expect much for $1/piece. Tonight, we went to Rajaji in Adams Morgan. I had chicken masala, my gf had the chicken korma, and our friend the lamb curry. I didn't try the lamb curry, but both of my and my gf's chicken were dry. The sauces were okay though, but I wish they were served at a higher temperature and more spiced. I think this restaurant has good potentials, but our dinner wasn't very good because the waiters weren't on the ball. The whole thing took way too long, probably close to an hour and a half. We also had to witness some of their customers leaving because their food took to long to come and it was cold by the time it arrived. That should've been a clue.

LOL... went there with a British friend looking for the most downmarket Indian we could find in DC in the hopes it would be a curry and six pints of lager place... we were disappointed.

I just joined a sushi meetup group, so hopefully I'll have lots of recommendations soon, although I'm far from a sushi expert. I went to Endo Sushi (near Clarendon metro) on Wednesday night and it was pretty good. A little on the pricey side ($42 including tax and tip).

I have never done the $1 sushi at Wok-n-Roll. I always order fresh. Is that part of the Happy Hour special?

It was. The chef was making the sushi for the regular menu from the same stock, so I'd imagine their regularly priced sushi tastes the same way.

Well, hopefully other members will get to reap this benefit. We're leaving DC at the end of next week. Anything that is a must before we leave?

I feel I already mentioned this. Yazuzu on 18th St. in Adams Morgan is a little middle eastern buffet in a strange, spaceship-like space. Very friendly, familial, cheap, good. Not really a "Buffet", more of a cafeteria style thing, but still good, and they like giving you free things.

For good inexpensive sushi, Kotobuki on McArthur Blvd. is always good and reliable. It's right above Makoto which is excellent but pricey.

Wait, which restaurant was recently re-tooled with a more casual menu, Indique or Indebleu? I always get the two confused. I'll agree, what I've eaten at Wok N Roll is pretty...OK. It's just average sushi, and if I absolutely have to eat within the block I'll head to Eat First, which is dirty, delicious American Chinese. I can't recommend Sushi-Ko enough, fishmongers. I'd say it's the best on the east coast, and that's having eaten at Masa, Nobu, Sushi Yasuda, etc. Also, Konami in the Tyson's area ain't half bad, if only for the lobster sashimi. Mmm... Edit: At the moment I'm eating a Wolfgang Puck frozen pizza while reading about delicious, delicious foodstuffs...
