I love the food, it is hands-down my favorite Indian food in Cincinnati--bearing in mind that most of my experience is in the Clifton/Gaslight and Anderson regions. But the service every single time I go there is a big issue. I had the buffet once...More

This is a favorite spot for a date night with my husband. The food is always guaranteed to be delicious, flavorful and cooked to the patron's level of spiciness. And, the fact that the restaurant sits just beyond Cincinnati's gaslight district, parking is never an...More

The food was amazing! I would recommend the buffet though so you can get everything you need (entrée, bread, raita, dessert, etc) for a reasonable price. This atmosphere in this house is so neat and relaxing. You can byob, which is great, so you can...More

This is our favorite restaurant for authentic Indian cuisine. It is a little off the beaten path, but well worth taking the time to find. This is also a BYB establishment. The food is consistently excellent. The Nan bread is to die for and they...More

We've ordered from Dusmesh via OrderUp a couple of times. They have a great menu, with options to make everyone in the group happy. The Saag Choley is my go-to dish, and it's very well done here! We've found Dusmesh to be a tiny bit...More

TripAdvisor led me here on a drive through Cincinnati from Detroit and it did not let me down. Older but nice decor, low-key, friendly staff and an excellent buffet for the price. All-around very, very good! Outside signage is a little bit subtle, so don't...More

I'd been there a few times for dinner, but this past April (2016) I had the opportunity to try the lunch buffet. It's fantastic. There are lots of vegetarian options, but meat-lovers will be happy too. I actually prefer Dusmesh to any of the other...More

On the advice of an Indian friend, I took my wife out to dinner here. Delicious! My wife ordered Chicken Vindaloo, and I ordered Lamb Vindaloo. Our server asked each of us how spicy we would like it, using a scale of 1 to 6,...More

Dusmesh offers your standard North Indian fare, cooked to perfection in a funky converted house. The dishes are available in a range of spices and served reasonably quickly. The staff is friendly and engaging and there is no fee for BYOB.

Drove over from airport, although not as close as led to believe. We shared a few items including Channa Chat, Biti Kabab, Shahi Paneer, Malai Kofta and Naan. Food was ok, setting was not great. Old house, uncomfortable booths, cold air blowing.... We were hungry,...More
