Really really good Indian food at a really good price. Worth going to! Went with friends a few times, and the quality has been consistent.

“Dated - but who cares?”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

This place was recommended as we were staying at 8 Reedbuck and dinner there took sooo long..
we went early so it was quiet but the menu was extensive and alot of things on the menu that we dont get in UK. My starter took longer than the rest to come but it was well worth the wait - and they did tell me it would take it longer.

Not expensive, great service.

Enjoyable!

“Very organized for a party of 30 people”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

We had a great time when dining at Dil. We were a party of 30 people and enjoyed our dinner service and mostly the food. The taste and flavors were just as imagined. The servers were on point and always were there when needed. It has come to my attention that this restaurant has another location closer to where my family lives in the Arcades area. We will try that location out as well.

“Superb Indian cuisine”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Three of went to Dil and arrived before it opened. The guard was kind enough to open the gate and let us sit at a table on their patio by the pool and even got us drinks while we waited for the restaurant to open! We then enjoyed generous portions of very nicely prepared Indian food, including the best papadums we had of all the places we went to. I would definitely recommend Dil.
