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

Three of went to Dil and arrived before it opened. 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! We then enjoyed generous portions of very nicely prepared Indian food, including the best papadums... 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.

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

I actually really enjoyed Dil. We went here on the advice of my colleague who lived in India for 4 years and said that it's the most authentic Indian food in Lusaka. He was right, the food was very tasty and authentic. The main dishes are served on (traditional?) Indian Bunsen burners, and the buttered nan was very good. I... More
