Good Lunch Buffet

Dusmesh is a very good Clifton neighborhood Indian restaurant. Try the buffet for lunch - open later than typical on weekends (3:00 PM). The food is very reliable and reasonably priced. The restaurant has no liquor license, but you're welcome to bring your own beverage alcohol (no corkage fee!).

I walked in the restaurant to wonderful smells of Indian food. I was excited for a new place to eat. I went to the bathroom and was disgusted by how dirty the bathroom door and how poorly the bathroom was cleaned. It ruined my dining experience and I could only wonder how the kitchen looked. The buffet had many different... More

So many flavors and enticing smells... At first glance the amazing smelling lamb biryani appeared to be a huge dish. Although delicious, I expected much more than 6 small cubes of lamb. I kept digging around the rice before exasperatedly giving up. The abundance of basmati rice, however, was hot and delicious and more than enough. The samosas, pakoras, chicken,... More

Dusmesh was Cincinnati's best Indian restaurant -- until it changed hands a couple of years ago. I regret to report that it's gone downhill dreadfully. My last trip there, I even told the owner how disappointed I had been the previous time, and although he promised to personally oversee my 'dining experience,' the Tandoori chicken was served barely lukewarm, and...

My first visit here was a pleasant surprise. The service was superb, something I wasn't expecting. My water glass was never more than half empty and our waiter was very attentive and helpful. He suggested Keshmeri nan bread which was excellent! I highly recommend it. We also got the garlic nan which delicious. The food came out quickly and was... More

Overall, not bad but if this is one of the best Indian Restaurants in Cincinnati we are going to be very disappointed! Facility- not bad, cheery colors, decent decorations but the windows are a bit dirty and many light bulbs burned out. So dark the waiter had to turn on his cell phone light to see to write! Service- Hit... More

My wife and I meet often for lunch here. It is midway between where I work and where she works. We love the buffet there. It is hot, fresh, great tasting and a good value. The buffet food is not as spicy as what you can get ordering off the menu, but the selections vary somewhat from day to day... More

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.
