Been a number of times and have never been disappointed with the meal. Authentic Indian cuisine and service is fast. Only ever questioned the waiter on the drinks order. Will visit again and recommend it to anyone who asks.

While in Lusaka, I tried to visit as many Indian restaurants as I could (there are none in my city). Dill is definitely the best one. It took me a while to find it, but I am sure I persisted. The setting (Ibex Hill) is wonderful and the food is a perfect match. The samosas were crisp and full of... More

Been going to this restaurant for many many years now. And it never disappoints. Actually had our engagement party here over 15 years ago so I guess it also holds sentimental value. Extensive menu, great service, great prices, very generous portions. Best Indian food for miles.

The Dill has had consistent excellent food over the past 8 years. It is easy to also phone in orders for take away as well (very nice feature for busy people). The restaurant has a pleasant ambiance and the service is excellent. It is a bit more costly than other Indian restaurants in Lusaka but we find it worth it.

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.
