Ordered a takeaway and got it home stone cold as if it had been out on the side for ages but even worse the curry was swimming in a thick layer of oil. The rice was also very oily and cold and the onion barji...so burnt I put them straight in the bin. We microwaved the meal in the hope of salvaging this but just a couple of mouthfuls and it is in the bin. I don’t know what went wrong and how they got such good reviews and I got such an awful meal but I am 30 quid out of pocket and left with the worst takeaway for a long time.More

We had booked a table at this restaurant for a family meal, whilst there was a great atmosphere the food really lacked much flavour. Whilst the food has pretty decent portions, the food was pretty bland which was very disappointing. Whilst this may of been...an error, when we got home it appeared that a number of drinks had been added to our bill. I would not recommend this restaurant as there are much better Indians in the area.More

After giving an honest opinion on Google, the owner attacked me with such a defensive approach calling me a "hater" for simply expressing that their food wasn't good! As a consumer I have every right to express my dinning experience when it's my money paying...for that experience. Even great chefs get criticised, its life! My family didn't like the loud nightclub style atmosphere, ordering from their bar which may I add tasted like supermarket value and maybe its to disguise the lack of taste, the hardly no meat or chicken in the dishes but bravo on the extra onions in every dish. I get why the young crowd or locals go there its the only place in that area that appears attractive but not worth a commute from London.More

Around 5 years ago we had a take away from this restaurant, which was very good but decided we would like to visit. It's around 7 miles from where we live and though we have 3 or 4 Indian eateries in our small town decided...to get in the car and try something new. We were not disappointed. It was a Sunday evening around 7 and we had phoned an hour before hand to check they had a table. It is a small restaurant (seating around 40) and was half full but with a pleasant atmosphere. We were greeted by a smiling gentleman and immediately noticed that all waiters were dressed in a national costume which impressed us and added to the atmosphere. Only later did we notice that in all advertising photos they were wearing national costumes Shown to our table and drinks were quick to arrive. I always try something different and though they had the "traditional dishes" tried a speciality. Started with the usual poppadums' and were asked were we ready for our main dish? The dining plates were very warm which you don't always get in larger places. Our food arrived and was very nicely presented on special plates. It was served hot (temp wise!!) and extremely moorish. Main dish and rice were more than ample and my dear wife couldn't manage all hers. One impressive thing was when she finished her glass of wine we saw some small lees in the bottom of her glass. Though we never complained the waiter saw this and immediately brought a fresh glass of wine. Friendly staff and delicious food made for a very enjoyable evening. The waiter bid us farewell and remarked not to leave it for 5 years again. I will not I assured him!! The staff were extremely helpful and polite nothing was too much for them. I am in no way connected to this restaurant but found it to be of a very good standard.More

The food was old, it was dry and tough I highlighted this issues with Deliveroo and they arranged a reorder. Unfortunately, the chicken in the food was still old, just don’t go there for your own stomach. It isn’t worth the stomach ache. Also, Deliveroo...just arranged for the feedback to go to the restaurant. I’ve deleted the app now and I’ve waisted £35 for nothing. Besides this my experience with Deliveroo had been okie, unfortunately, food quality isn’t a Deliveroo concern.More

I came to Desi Indian Dining Club for my birthday celebrations with friends and it was a vibe. The service was A1 and the food was lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I don’t drink so I received a free non-alcoholic shot and...a bottle of lemonade. My cake was also brought out to 50 cent In Da Club which was a vibe. The food was nice and well presented. All of my friends enjoyed it and I’ll definitely be coming back.More

If you want to wait an hour and half, have your food delivered to the wrong address before being delivered to you 20 mins later (I know this as I know the person living at wrong address they called me soon as the driver left...theirs) to be told one thing by the owner and then something else when tried calling 3 times later with driver present and then to be hung up on, have COLD food which then needed to be microwaved then this is the place for you! WILL NEVER be ordering from them again. This was a 2nd chance for desi due to previous rudeness over their failure to provide a half decent service so would not recommend anyone to order a takeaway from here! They also take any short comings away from their drivers wages or potentially even sack them! Disgusting place!!More

On the day that government extended the tier 4 areas across the country, I collected dinner from Desi only to find that all the 3 employees inside Desi had no PPE protection whatsoever. Not even a bad placed mask on the chin as many people...use, not a single mask at sight. Every other take away that I have used in the last week had employees with masks as mandatory for every open business. Being a restaurant with a open door on a tier 4 area I expected much more from Desi.More
