Chicken Tikka Masala
Roasted Chicken Breast Chunks, Creamed Tomato Sauce, Fenugreek
Creamed Tomato-Fenugreek Sauce
Maybe it was that we hadn’t been here in a while. Maybe it was the company, as we had a friend with us who was new to the cuisine. Maybe it was just a combination of many things, but this was one of the best meals we had. We ordered our typical fare: The fenugreek check in, the lamb and pomegranate dish, the crab – scallop dish and some saag paneer. We ordered another lamb dish that was new to us and was fantastic I think the word “Mark“ was in the name, I don’t recall. Service was efficient and pleasant. The food was spiced perfectly for us at medium. We had made another convert to Indian cuisine, thanks to these folks.
Excellent food and service! Loved it!
We tried several appetizers and I had the buttery chicken. It was delicious!
Super nice staff! Food was good and wine selection is great!
we had an amazing time! great food and ambiance! also proper social distancing made me feel very comfortable
Excellent food and service. The lighting is a little bright, but the ambience otherwise is very nice.
Outstanding food and the best selection of wines!!!
The overall experience was fantastic! Would definitely recommend :)
Best Indian food I have had in America! I lived in London for three years and miss Indian food so much! This was amazing and the service excellent too!
The food was average. I’ve had better. Lemon Cuisine is awesome!
Perfect date night spot!
Food could not have been better. Great service even though the restaurant was at a very low capacity. Will definitely return.
Quiet lunch. No regular coffee on tap today though. Food was delicious as always.
The best Indian restaurant at which of ever eaten.
Very good Covid protocol… Felt very safe and secure at our isolated table!
This was our first time dining at Lehja and I could not be more impressed. The experience, all-around, was fantastic. Great service, inviting atmosphere, and some of the best food I’ve had. Plenty of well-designated vegan options, which is always a plus, and a diverse menu of beer, wine, and signature cocktails. Would 100% recommend and will be back soon!
Great Indian food & excellent service. Highly recommend trying their appetizers & desserts.
Food is best I’ve ever had anywhere
We had a 4:30 confirmed reservation and when we showed up the doors were locked and no one around. Very disappointed.
The soup was spicy, and then the coconut accompaniment made it much more palatable for me. I always love veggie samosas, and these were wowza! My chicken curry was really good, so all in all this was another great experience for lunch. If the waiter hadn’t brought the coconut for the soup, I probably would have stopped with two spoonsful, for sure. Too important to forget this for those of us that aren’t Indian!!
Service was slow. The waiter had too many tables.
Lehja delivered delicious food and a beautiful experience for my wife and I's anniversary. While the service was adequate, don't expect the staff to be able to answer any questions you have about the food or drink ingredients. They are friendly order-takers, but don't add much else to the experience.
However, the food was excellent!
It was an amazing experience from start to finish, as always. Sunny and his team do a great job of providing amazing food and service and in a timely manner for lunch. Remains my favorite Indian cuisine in town, hands-down.
Great evening introducing our daughter’s friend to Indian food - wonderful experience as always
As always it was amazing! Everything I have ever tried there is off the charts!
Nice food spice range was excellent, the blue crab taka tac was excellent
Always the best night out when I get to go to Lehja!! Food is amazing!!
Lehja is always excellent! The leechitini was delicious, and lamb chops enhanced by the buttery sauce.
Love the food and the ambience
Excellent food India style with varying degrees of spice. Very nice variety of dishes and cuisine. Always a friendly place and enjoyable.
Dellicious, flavorful Indian cuisine.
I do not always love Indian food but this was absolutely the best I have ever had. Delicious!!
Host had zero personality.
Great food and service as usual. Our only complaint would be that we thought there was a brunch menu on Saturday too. We realize that due to the pandemic things may temporarily change but they should update their website.
Services was excellent! The waiter was super friendly and very helpful too!
Another stellar meal at Richmond and probably Virginia's finest Indian cuisine restaurant. Recommend the shrimp and chicken zafrani, surf and turf curry and really any of the appetizer dishes. Great wine and beer list as well as excellent service.
It was a special occasion. We made sure to let them know ahead of time that we were going to have the chefs special tasting “feed me Sunny“ dinner. But, I repeat myself as that’s a special occasion, by itself.
We went early, wanting to avoid crowded situations as much as possible. We enjoyed approximately five courses, each with a wine paired perfectly. One of the things that we enjoy about the tasting menu is the opportunity for the kitchen to get creative...and this they do.
It would be easy to say we had a few different things including a chicken breast, a crabcake, and a tasty dessert. The chicken breast was well done and yet so very moist. The crabcake was definitely not your typical Chesapeake Bay fare, having distinct Indian overtones.
As much as we have our favorite Indian dishes, it was so enjoyable just trusting them to present items which we know they had spent hours preparing.
When finished and reflecting on the meal, it was hard to identify the special occasion. Was it the birthday we recognized that week or the incredible meal?
I booked an 8 PM reservation and spoke to someone in advance via phone as well in regards to having outdoor seating. When I arrived no table and was told 10-15 minutes. I waited and no table and not even the courtesy to give me a call to save it will be a little bit longer. Terrible customer service and follow up.
I have been to Lehja a few times, and it never disappoints. This was my first venture out since the pandemic, and I felt very comfortable on the patio. Everyone who came to our table wore masks and gloves. We were even offered hand sanitizer upon arrival. I was celebrating my birthday with a friend, and we both were blown away by the customer service and the food -- just outstanding! The menu is so comprehensive it can be overwhelming, but the wait staff is incredibly helpful. They will describe any dish you ask about and give you their opinion based on what you share that you like. I really appreciated the time they took to make sure we knew exactly what we were getting and helped us make excellent choices, although I do not think we could go wrong with anything on the menu.
I cannot wait to go again!
