This place was recommended as we were staying at 8 Reedbuck and dinner there took sooo long.. we went early so it was quiet but the menu was extensive and alot of things on the menu that we dont get in UK. My starter took longer than the rest to come but it was well worth the wait - and... More

We had a great time when dining at Dil. We were a party of 30 people and enjoyed our dinner service and mostly the food. The taste and flavors were just as imagined. The servers were on point and always were there when needed. It has come to my attention that this restaurant has another location closer to where my... More

The guard was kind enough to open the gate and let us sit at a table on their patio by the pool and even got us drinks while we waited for the restaurant to open!

Excellent food, good value, good service (my server, Tembo, has worked there for 18 years, and is very knowledgeable about the menu items; he was able to steer me to a different item when he learned what I was looking for). The interior is kind of heavy and dark, but the food is worth the visit.

In Lusaka the only thing you are guaranteed that will always be good is a curry - and Dil has been sewrving us good curry for decades. Love it. Could do with a nicer outside area
