Disappointed in the dirty tablecloth at the table where I sat. The waiter only offered to replace it AFTER I tried to flip it over. Slw service about delivering a menu to me and even SLOWER for my Saturday SPECIAL to arrive. The side order was wrong, but I accepted it as time was an issue for me. The samosa... More

Vegetable dish was floating in oil. Mgt. said he'd do something about it NEXT time we came in. Won't be another.

...on the last night of our second great American tour and we just had to have a taste of home - an English Indian curry before we fly home tomorrow. Quick search lead us to this place, a good 20 mins from our hotel but well worth the trip out. Restaurant was not full with only a few tables occupied,... More

I’ve eaten regularly at Desi Spice and always thought of it as a second-choice restaurant. It got high marks for its location, but I didn’t find the service or food to be anything special. It was just okay. But, three recent visits have really changed my perspective. The food and service was so much better that I inquired if the... More

Well, I've always loved Desi Spice, so I was thrilled to find out they opened a new Indian restaurant up in Johns Creek (Alpharetta). I went, and it was awesome! OH, MY!!!! Soooo good!!! this little place is amazing! Just simply some of the best Indian food I've had in a very long time! And there are a bunch of... More

Stopped in for dinner before seeing a show at the Fox. They opened at 5:30 and the restaurant quickly filled up. The food was very good and the waitstaff was very friendly. My only complaint is even though the restaurant was very clean, the wall hangings needed some dusting. The one by our table was covered in dust. We had... More

Very impressed with staff. Suggestions were spot on and the veg offerings were exceptional. This is one of Atlanta's hidden spots that's under visited. I would highly recommend a visit. We have been three times over the last year and always pleased with our meal and selections. The price if very fair - I hate to say this however it's... More

Desi spice gets a lot of things right about an Indian restaurant in the states. It seems clear the owners/employees are legit and they've brought a lot of the cool Indian culture into their restaurant. Anyone who may knock their layout likely has limited clue what a comparable place in India looks like. You want the religious/cultural pictures on the... More

We took our daughter and her family (husband and two girls under 9) there right after Xmas, 2015. We shared orders and had the Tandori Chicken, Chicken Tica, Saag Lamb, Rogan Josh, three appetizers, and three orders of their Nan bread which is outstanding. The food was nicely prepared, but the prices are on the high side.

Atlanta has a surprisingly large number of Indian restaurants, and a number of them are very good. The best is probably Desi Spice -- it has been around at least for two decades I have been in Atlanta, and while we try them all, we end up coming back most consistently to this one. Manny, the owner, is the best... More
