Great Indian

Great Indian with more than just the Anglo-Bengali standards available, some great Asian food here. The dosas were lovely and made a change from curry. Really friendly proprietor who seems to be trying hard to get it right. Recommended.

Dispite the bad reviews me and some friends decided to try Dana Pani out and we were amazed with the quality of the food! The King Prawn's are so good from the tandoor section of the menu! Really friendly staff with really good service! If you think that this is 'bad food' then you need to go to India as... More

Ordered from here for the first time and believe me it will be my last! It took nearly two hours for my food to be delivered the time changed twice and even after the second time slot they gave me they didn't turn up until half an hour later. This wouldn't have been so bad if the food had actually... More

Had a chicken tikka salad as a main no. 15 and it was like boiled chicken with melted cheese on. The pickles that came with the poppadoms were foul one was a curried coleslaw. The diet coke was off however we did not pay for that and the once loved Kingfisher beer was not up to scratch. I've eaten my... More

Having not eaten an Indian dish for a while, it was time to visit Dana Pani, the closest Indian takeaway to us. We were not disappointed. We had one of the set menus as it wasn't a bad deal at all. It was eerily quiet and food took a little while to reach us, most likely due to it being... More

My take away lamb dish was almost half ghee oil with pretty tough lamb/mutton? The sauce texture was fatty and had an acrid chilli powder finish. So many inconsistent Indian restaurants in Exeter that really need to raise their game. Not good enough, never going back.

Simply the best tasting indian cuisine around. Food made with passion and love as opposed to straight out of a jar. Well done Prem you should be proud.

This is the nearest indian restaurant from my home. So, wanted to try their food. It was in a quiet day and I had a take away from them. They missed salad and mints with tandoori chicken that I ordered. papadom were not fresh. Tandoori chicken was not very impressive either. If they service is such in a quiet time,... More

Ordered from here for takeaway so cannot comment on the restaurant itself but the food was very poor. The two curries we ordered didn't taste like they should, even remotely, and were very watery. Not cheap either so was quite a shame. Food took a little while longer than was quoted. Staff were polite but the food just wasn't nice.... More

We used a groupon voucher and added to it- very easy, they just added the difference to the bill. The service was great; the waiter was very warm, friendly and helpful. The food was the best Indian meal I've ever had. You must try this place!
