Given the many positive reviews we were surprised that our meal was so awful. Despite the fact that the restaurant was half empty, the service was bad. We waited a long time to order and then for the meals to arrive. The waiter did apologise for the delay and explained they were short staffed. However, there was no excuse for... More

I have visited here a few times now and always say it's my favourite Indian in Widnes. The chicken chat is gorgeous!!! It's a lovely restaurant with a gorgeous atmosphere and very pleasant decor. The staff are really friendly too. You can also order for delivery which is great. Worth a visit!

The staff are really friendly and helpful, even coming up with meal suggestions. You never feel rushed eating here. The choice is fantastic and the food is usually spot on. Been going for years and we are here at least once a month at one time. Would always recommend Desii to anyone looking for a quality Indian meal.

Great food and lovely place. The service is great when people moan about waiting I don't understand. It's cooked from fresh. I'd rather much wait for freshly cooked food then, instantly get food that you know has been microwaved! This place dosent do that, you should try the chicken anchari or akbari chom chom. Best Indian for mikes.

Have been here a few times and went again this week with my husband. Food is always good and this week was no exception- tasty, good choice, well cooked, not too greasy and not all just the standard meals you'd see on an Indian menu. We had the Desii feast- poppadoms, 2 starters (seek kebab was best), 2 curries, keema... More

Recently went back there with the family and I have to say, really impressed with the new refurbishment that they have done to the place. Looks absolutely amazing! Great ambience! And the curries... still outstanding!

Dropped in for an early evening meal and was impressed by the new decor - still in keeping with my ideal curry house - but new carpeting, lush upholstery, lighting and paintwork. A happy farewell to the white tablecloths - I always feel guilty if I spill any food on them and in their place some very smart and far... More

Thought it was brilliant. Food was perfect. My only criticism is that the nibbles at the start were a bit bare. Not a lot of onions and sources so would of liked more as I use it with my meal and there was none left. I wasn't being too greedy with them either haha
