a popular spot near Cincinnati State, that doesn't get as much traffic as the Ambar/Akash chain, but with food that is really just as good. Main benefit is that they offer a buffet for lunch for those who would like to try greater variety. At <$10 per person, hard to beat - one of my regular lunch locations

I love great food but when I am in a rush I can do a good buffet. That is exactly what I found here. A nicely stacked buffet with a sampling of their best dishes. 2 of us had lunch for less than $20. My experience had great service so, for what I was looking for this restaurant rates 4... More

We eat here at least 2 time per month. Food: Very very good and seasoned perfectly. We ask for #2 which is pleasantly spicy. And we get the Chef's special naan, yummy Service: Friendly and fast Specialties: They have the best Lamb dishes in the city with many choices. The Lamb is very tender, they also serve goat.

There are a lot of Indian restaurants in and around Cincinnati but Dusmesh stands out to me because of the variety of their menu, and more importantly, the variety on their buffet. As a vegetarian I get used to having most place offer 2-3 options but they usually have 5-6. The buffet is kept hot and fresh nan comes out... More

This used to be our favorite Indian restaurant in Cincinnati. A few months ago we noticed that the overall quality dropped and wondered why. We soon learned that the restaurant had been sold and has a new staff and chef. It's still a very good Indian restaurant, just no longer any better than most of the others in Cincinnati. I... More

First the positives. Easy parking. Nice décor. Wait staff is attentive. Food portions are ample. However, the carpet was littered. No one seem to care. The food does not have the depth of flavor found in some of Cincinnati's other Indian restaurants. Some people swear by Dusmesh. Not me.

This restaurant is but a shell of it's former self. It is under new ownership and. simply stated, it is not the same. Service is mediocre at best. For example our main courses were served before wee received our plates. The food was not hot when served. Overall a great disappointment as this was our favorite restaurant for a number... More

We visited Dusmesh on a Sunday afternoon, and were pleased to find a buffet. This was only my second visit to an Indian restaurant, so I was excited by the variety. I tried a bit of almost everything on the buffet and each dish was wonderful. Among our choices were - turnip marsala (one of my favorites) chicken curry, goat... More

I can only really vouch for a few dishes, because when you find two dishes you absolutely love, why ever deprive yourself of them. This restaurant makes the best Chicken Tikka Marsala i've ever had, the favors are perfect, and the chicken is tender. However, the dish which is the reason i come here every time i return home, is... More
