Minerva's objective is to provide genuine and authentic Indian cuisine in the US with the exciting and authentic taste of the many regions of India, combined with style, flair, and presentation.

Minerva is unique as an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world.
It is a gourmet trail of the many diverse regions of India. It serves food from as many as six different regions of India and has a team of specialist chefs recruited from India, each producing their own regional specialties. This makes Minerva, the winner of more appreciation than any other Indian restaurant in the Washington Metro area.

Minerva opened its first restaurant at in Herndon, Northern Virginia in the year 1998. The welcome response to our restaurant in the city made us decide to open our second restaurant. We bought Eastern Buffet in Fairfax city in the year 2000 and totally refashioned Minerva in Fairfax, which again won the appreciation of the city.

We at Minerva had a life long passion for real Indian food, and have traveled the length and breadth of India, so that we could provide you with the same culinary delights that were relished by the Maharaja's of India's glorious past.
