Dil is an establishment in the Indian restaurant ranks in Lusaka. Good food. Though a bit out of the way on Ibex Hill, it is worth visiting.

People say this is the best Indian restaurant in Lusaka, and I still believe so after having dinner several times here.

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

In my view this is the best and most reliable Indian restaurant in Lusaka. I would not hesitate to recommend it, and I eat there regularly, once a week.

The food is the highlight of this place, large and interesting menu of mainly South Indian dishes. The service was good but there were a lot of waiters. Decor inside is old school and outside is basic but good. Good atmosphere but can be a little empty sometimes.
