“Best Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Top quality restaurant, the food is exceptional! Martin (Man U fan - shame) the restaurant manager is engaging, helpful and prepared to discuss the individual menu items if your frightened about something Hot and Spicy! The Balti dishes are particularly good showing an exceptional depth of flavour, with rich tomato flavors that are infused with herbs and spices. Overall a 5 star experience because the staff, the quality of food and the price make this the best Indian meal experience in Bath and the Bristol area. Take your own wine as you don't have to pay stupid corkage charges.

“Lovely little no frills restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My partner & I decided to go out for a curry after the rugby on Saturday night to cheer ourselves up! We got a table for two by the window @ 7:30 without booking. Service was swift, and staff were very polite & smiley. The food was lovely & just the right a amount for us, but if you are a big eater you may need to stock up on a few more side dishes! The price is great and BYO drink is a bonus!

By 8:15 the small restaurant (42 covers) was full with a great atmosphere. All sorts of customers which makes life fun, posh couple in the corner; group of 18 year old lads on the red wine, family birthday party for 12! Great little no frills restaurant which offers good value food & service oh and a take away!

“Fantastic Food nice one Martin.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Love this place have been many times over many years since first discovering while working in the same road, Martin and his staff do a great job the food just gets better each time we go.
Take your own wine always better as you cant always guarantee finding something you like in other restaurants.
Always recommend the Desh to anyone who asks me for the best Indian food in Bath, value for money great food great staff why pay inflated prices in town head for Chelsea road park and eat.
Back soon.

“Great Value and BYO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Family meal out. Really good food, sensible prices. Excellent service and you can take your own alcohol, so keeps the costs under control.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The place was recommended by one my colleagues at work. I went with my partner to dine on Sunday night and we could not believe how cheap was the food. The question we asked ourselves before we ordered was what would the quality of the food be for the prices in the menu. The quality of the food was excellent and we could not finish everything, as they serve very good sizes. Moreover, you can bring your own alcoholic drink with you, as they do not sell alcohol in the restaurant, but they provide their customers with glasses for the wine, beer or any other alcoholic drink you bring with you. What more can you ask for, bring your expensive bottle of wine, which you might have to pay £40 in other restaurant.
