I have been going to the Desh for about 20 years. It is a good curry with nice service at a fair price. It is nice that you can bring your own bottle I enjoy the shashlik and the dhansak.

If you like pretentious Indian cuisine then Desh is not for you. But if you like authentic Indian food well prepared and served with a genuine smile then Desh is for you. With BYO this restaurant represents great value for money

I am a regular customer and the Desh never fails to please. The staff are very friendly and always seek to make you welcome. The atmosphere is relaxed and you are never rushed. Booking is advisable at weekend's. Go on - give it a try ...

Simple, clean and friendly environment. No fake ostentatiousness. Really tasty food. Eaten there 3 times now and had two more takeaways. Will be using as primary indian take out and evening meal from now on. The food is the best bit, really perfectly cooked and spiced. The sag bahzi was NOT stretched to cover the dish as in most restaurants!... More

This place is great to eat in or take away. Lovely food at a good price. This place used to be on our doorstep, but now we have moved further away it is still our take away of choice.

We stumbled on the place whilst doing some laundry. It was really busy so we thought we would give it a try and were not disappointed. The service was prompt and attentive given how busy it was. There was also a lot of people getting take-away. The food was really good with good cuts of meat used. I note that... More

This is a BYOB restaurant. Been a number of times now and the food is superb. I have a great time and come away at between £15 and £20 a head depending how much I splash out. A great Indian restaurant at very cheap prices ...
