This is our favourite restaurant to go to or to have a take away when around the area. It's not a special occasion place but we eat here regularly and enjoy the food here every time. It is very loud so there won't be much of a conversation but you will enjoy a dance from the waiters in the evening.

good food and a boisterous atmosphere -desi style. we had a fun family night, kids loved the bhangra dancing and joined in! if you want a quiet formal meal, then go elsewhere.

I've been a customer for about 10 years and the food has been consistently excellent. I've taken family, business friends and held celebrations at the Desi Tadka. The service is very good, in a basic punjabi style - with one exception of one terse waiter.

Visited today with some friends, impressed with the taste however disappointed with the quantity. Highly recommend if you prefer quality over quantity. Also difficult to get attention of the staff due to loud music in the evening. Overall it was okay.

Very bad service, waiter was drunk and kept forgetting the order. There was more oil in the bowl then food!!!! The waiters were only interested in looking at women customers then serving us. We caught one chef picking his nose and put it his mouth!!!! The restaurant looks nice, but once in there, you will experience bad service. Plus don't... More

We ate in this restaurant because it was directly across the road from the hotel we was stopping in. Food is fresh and authentic and tasted great, It does not serve alcohol but from what I could see from other customers, it looks like you can bring in your own. Only let down for us was a young child belonging... More
