As another reviewer has said on here, I was pleasantly surprised by the Dilshad. Admittedly, the decor is not what one would call contemporary, but the service was warm and friendly and the food pretty good, particularly the naan bread which was really fresh and tasty. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal and reasonably priced. Will certainly return.

My g/f and I went here as The Coach House didn’t have a chef, La Scala was closed, Scoffs Fish and Chips had no fish left and was closing and Cilantro next door to the Dilshan was closed. Walked in, it was quiet and the decor was fairly poor and worn. 1 person serving the 4 tables and the service was slow. Didn’t feel clean, the food was poor, doughy uncooked naan, didn’t taste like it had been in a tandoor oven. We were so hungry though from trying to find somewhere to eat we ate it but really didn’t enjoy it. We have eaten in many Indian restaurants and this was poor it felt very amateur. And the toilet didn’t have a working flush.

Went in on the 'off chance' as we had not booked. Only a few other diners i there. Our party consisted of 2 adults, 2 children. Waiter was friendly & took time to explain the different dishes. The food was good, portions were very generous. The location of the restaurant is not the most celubrious but i have no complaints over the quality of the food or service given to me & my family.

We spent a last minute weekend in Paignton in a B and B and were wandering the streets looking for somewhere to eat last Saturday (26/05/12) there were plenty of fish n chip places but we wanted something a little different so we asked a local shop keeper if they could recommend anywhere, they sent us to the Dilshad and boy are we glad they did.
The hostess, I think was Victoria and Abdul the waiter/barman were both such a good laugh, they created a really friendly happy atmosphere.
The menu is extensive, there were dishes on there that I had not come accross before so choosing what to have took ages.
The meals when the arrived were amazingly good and so much. The portions were so big there was no way we could finish everything, we were asked if we wanted packed to take away with us but we had to explain that we were heading back to Walsall the next day.
Prices.......... not the cheapest we've eaten at but there again it was one of the better Indian Restaurants we have eaten at.
Would we go there again? Without a doubt, as we said...... Loved it !
Just wish it wasn't so far away for us - doubt they would deliver to the Midlands. If you live in Paignton you're so lucky that it is so close to you if you have not been to the Dilshad in Paignton - pay it a visit.
Don't know why the poor previous reviews, guess some people just a bit OTT. No dicky tummy after and that includes a 150 + mile journey and straight to work on the Sunday afternoon.
