This place is now under a new management and it's not worth visiting anymore. The original DeeDees used to serve decent, vegetarian fare at a reasonable price. The daily buffet used to include Bhel Puri and Pani puri. Under the new owners: - The buffet...price now is $18 per person - No Bhel Puri nor Pani Puri in the buffet - They charge extra for using a credit card and they don't tell you up-front about it - And you need to pay first, before eating - They use paper plates and paper cups for everything - yuck What used to be a very friendly, healthy, reasonable priced restaurant has disappeared. Save your time and money, find a different restaurantMore

we paid $50 and had only 10 rotis. Me, my husband and my 2 kids went for the buffet. The person who was serving the roti was so rude. when I asked for 5 roti he laughed at us and said something in hindi and...he served us only 3 roti. while coming for refill he would serve every table except us. we have to call him and ask him for roti. still he'll give only 2 or 3. when i told the lady in the counter about it she called the person and asked him. suddenly he started shouting something in hindi. Then the lady asked me how many rotis did you get. I said 10. Then she asked me "oh you want more than 10 rotis??" she was repeatedly saying that. and asked me "we have rice why do you want more than 10 rotis??" whatttt the hellllll... it's a buffet ryt. is there any limit? I mean if the other items were good why would I wait for the roti? the food is horrible. that's why I was waiting for the roti. the rice was soo bad. other than that what do you have? tell me? then later all of a sudden 3, 4 people started yelling at me. the lady was shouting at me why are you keep on asking him to bring the roti??? then why the hell did you call it as a buffet? commenting on how much they eat is such a unprofessional thing to do. would you guys ask me this same question if I'm paying for each roti??? You charge $16.99 per head. I paid $16.99 + 16.99 + 10 = $49 including tax and you guys cant serve more than 10 rotis for 3 people. Shame on you guys. put a board saying that there is a limit for the food you eat so people like me won't come back to your restaurant and won't get embarrassed. atleast have some good food so that we dont have to wait to eat only roti which you serve once in a decade. then atlast a lady was telling me that we are not fighting we are just explaining our point. come on. I'm a grown up not a kid.More

Glad to find a healthy/satvik food providing restaurant! I highly appreciate their prompt service to accommodate my jain food request. Staff is very nice & humble. The ambiance is just perfect.

DeeDee's used to be authenticate Gujarati food most days until there has been a change in management. Now its a mix of Gujarati and Punjabi food. Undhiu is not authenticate, but Kadhi is. Chapati's are still good and Thepla (methi paratha) is good. My favorite...is mixed vegetable of the day, chapati, kadhi, thelpa and srikhand. We come to this place mostly for Friday team lunchesMore

Authentic Indian food. They have different style Thai's on different days. Please check the menu once before heading there to eat. My favorite dish there is their Shrikhand. It's mouth watering! They have limited seating so make sure not to go during rush hour.

If your craving for some homestyle indian food-Deedee's is the place to go to..They have lunch and dinner buffets with a wide variety of items. Their weekend special buffets varies from Gujrati, Maharshtrian, Rajasthani and Kathiawadi. We have tried both the Gujrati and Rajasthani. Both...are quite good. Their shrikand is lip smacking and do not give it a miss. All in all, a good indian spread with a feel of homemade food :)More

I love Indian food. I walked in and knew it was going to be good as I was one of very few white Americans in the restaurant. Most were Indian. All the food was tasty and the fresh bread is delivered to the table often....No credit cards, cash only. Very simple decor but I was there for the food. Will come back if in Santa Clara gain.More

Deedee's is a vegetarian restaurant located close to Santa Clara University. My visit today was for lunch and the only option they had was the lunch buffet. The food is good and except for a few items, largely the taste was great and satisfying. The...cost was $11 for the buffet. Items on the buffet: Tea, Roti/Parata, pakoda, samosa, Potato-Capsicum fry, Cabbage-potato sabji,  masoor dhaal, black chenna stew, kofta curry, white rice, pulao, dahi vada, Kadi, moong dal halwa, custard, pickles, salad, chutneys.  Given the low cost for unlimited food, it tasted great. The Kofta curry was an exception and it had taste of preservatives. Rating: Ambience: 3/5 (Nothing great) Food 4/5 Value for money 5/5 Service 4/5 (It is a buffet so nothing to rate for service. However, they always kept refilling the different dishes whenever it came close to getting over.@More

Lunch buffet spread is too good. Authentic, home-made Indian food, and probably one of the few Indian restaurants in the US that did not disappoint. The spread was pretty good, but I ended up eat just Srikhand for lunch. The Shrikhand was better than what...you get in most places in India!More

Two types of rotis, vegetables, sweet dishes, dals, and just one plate to hold it all:) The fare is simple yet sumptuous, the place is no-fuss, the service is no-nonsense. And the price is perhaps less than a standard buffet in this part of the...world, but the food is more than good...! In fact, for a visitor from India such as me, DeeDee's was a surprisingly satisfying experience.More

I had been to this restaurant with family on 12th September 2014 Friday. This classic restaurant caters only Lunch and Dinner, buffet type. Week ends they provide distinct cuisine, viz. Gujarati, Maharashtrian, Rajastani, Kathiawadi..... We had the chance of taking Maharashtra's food which was awesome....The food includes Pami Puri, Bhel Puri, Vegetable Briyani, Hot Roti's, Puran Polie, Kadhi,Sprouted Moong Deal, Bhaji etc. Nice hospitality and service excellent. Price is much reasonable. My sugession is that they have to expand the service area, so that customers need not take much pains to take their Buffet. I visited this restaurant once during Nov 12 and yesterday was my 2nd visit. I would love to visit this restaurant again. The location of this restaurant is at Santa Clara and not Mountain View which may pl be corrected by Trip Advisor.More
