“Excellent food and great service at a reasonable price”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

There are some good Indians in Exeter (Ganges, real indiia), but this restaurant opened in 2012 goes to the top of the list.

The menu is great mix of familiar and unusual dishes. We tried Some great variations on tandoori staples, and a duck biryiani was generously portioned and beautifully spiced. Food was well presented and service was exceptional and not over bearing. Drinks prices were very reasonable.

Restaurant was quiet, But it was a Sunday lunchtime.

Will definitely be returning.

“Great food & service”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Visited the restaurant last week before going to the cinema. Great choices on the menu, some different dishes that other restaurants in Exeter don't have. Great tasting food, wonderful friendly staff & will be going back again & again.

“Good Food Very friendly staff”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Have been to Dana Pani at least on 4 occasions and it has not failed to deliver even once. Being an Indian myself I can say that the food is genuinely Indian and tasty. Staff could not be friendlier. Convenient location as well.

“In one word HORRIBLE!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

I travel to exeter quite often for work purpose and since ive seen the review's i thought ill give it a go. Regretting the decision big time! It looks very nice and cosy from outside and which it is but the food was absolutely horrible! No taste what so ever, the lamb was very chewy and when i complained to the waiter,he just laughed and walked away! The worst service i've ever received in an Indian restaurant.

“Probably the best Indian in Exeter”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

First off: they have a good, varied menu, not just the usual stock of Bhunas and Vindaloos. They have chaat like pani puri and bhel, the streetfood popular in Mumbai and other Indian cities, and they do them quite well. You'll struggle to find chaat anywhere in the UK outside Indian neighbourhoods like Southall and Wembley in London. So well done on that. I'm coming back just for the chaat.

They do other food well too - again not just standard Indian fare, something a little different and better.
