Ordered takeaway and got an uncooked chicken tandoori. It was raw on the inside. Think the tandoori chef wanted to go home early so rushed it. The tandoori was for my 3yr old son and I am so lucky that he didn’t just eat it...as I checked it. Disgusting place. Never again!More

First time back since before lockdown and was so worth the wait! Satisfied the taste buds and the soul😊 lamb balti, chicken dhansak, chicken korma with side dishes and starters you don't find on a lot of other menus ...all cooked to perfection. Service wa,...as always, excellent and ambience warm and inviting. Can't wait to return. Son said nothing in MK can compare to how good it is here and looks forward to dining at Desi.More

It's valentines night, my son ordered a takeaway for my wife and I, when the order turned up after more than an hour, half of it was missing, after calling to find out what had happened, was told they would give 10%discount on our next...order, at this present time I'm still waiting for the missing dishes to arrive, but by now the dishes that did arrive are cold and will have to be warmed before eating, totally spoiled our takeaway experience and put a damper on the night, very disappointedMore

Enjoyed lovely meal out with friends last night. The staff here are excellent. Family run business who go the extra mile to the make sure their customers are happy! On a Saturday evening you can take your own drink which makes it a reasonably cheap...experience! Food fantastic! Staff all smartly dressed and very attentive nothing too much trouble for them. This was our fourth visit although we have to travel to get there it’s worth it!More

Just had a takeaway from Desi and am very disappointed, all the food was just about tepid, the naan was burnt, the chapatti were in a plastic bag and covered in oil, the poppadom that came with the meal you could fold in half, not...crispy at all. This used to be a great place for food but after tonights culinary disaster I would never order from here againMore
