The Desi Lounge does a great curry, great atmosphere and great food. What more could you want for a night out. There is a bar in the middle if you just want a drink or if your waiting for a table. But you don't normally have to wait long.

No complaints as such, but this visit wasn't as spectacular as my last one here. The staff were excellent, and prices are reasonable, but I anticipated a more exciting meal. Chicken bhuna in puri was a lovely starter, but the poppadoms were slightly over done and ended up a little bitter. The lamb nihari was very tasty with plenty of... More
