My family and I love coming to eat here as the service is very prompt and the food is excellent. The portion sizes are just right and it has a lovely relaxed, classy ambience. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends. The staff are always warm and friendly.

I've been coming to Desi Lounge for many years. Even though I've moved out of the area I still return when I can. The food and the service are exceptional. I'm not one for hot curries but everything is just so tasty and presented so well. The Shahi Korma has a lovely sweet, tomato taste and I've never seen it... More

The food is fantastic. If take out then a 10% fiscpunt is applied as well x very relaxing restaurant with a lovely bar.

I've given this place decent reviews previously, but this latest visit was very disappointing. The poppadoms were OK but the accompaniments were very watery and tasteless. My bhuna on Puri was excellent, other than the Piri being a touch too thick and chewy. My partners starter of prawn in garlic was awful. Tasteless and in a yellowy sauce that the... More

I went to this restaurant for the first time recently with friends. The restaurant looks nice and has a modern bar in its centre. We had a set meat menu with rice and nans. which included two chicken dishes, one lamb and one fish all tasty though there could have been more chicken in those dishes. The one vegetarian among...
