cutting corners – good news first. great service, convivial atmosphere, good location. bad news...the food was sub par, bordering on bland as if made from a packaged spice mix. overpriced and under-prepared. the mango lassi was terrible, watery and more like a thai iced tea in color and sweetness. if this is your idea of good indian food, you are missing out, try other places.
Best Indian in ATLANTA – Food and service was excellent! Nice patio and we loved the chicken tikka masala,garlic naan and sag paneer. Father and son owners were really nice. I'll be back for more....
Best Indian Food Ever! – Our favorite restaurant! The food is wonderful - they use the best quality ingredients - everything is fresh. The people that work there are so very nice, too. We always enjoy our visits - food and service are great. Love to sit on the patio when its nice out. All the food is great - from appetizers to dessert. My husband has tried Indian restaurants when traveling - in major US cities and even oversea - nothing comes even close to Desi Indian Spice.
be careful all indian places have a rating of 4 or more on 5 – There is no Indian restaurant that does not have a 4 / 4.5 star review. Pl be careful. We are an unethical breed of people and inflate our ratings. Least realising that all indian restaurants end up being 4.5 on 5. Pl use word of mouth and personal discretion to visit all of these restaurants.
I wish health and happiness in yr experimentation with food.
Elegant and Delicious – This is one of our family favorite restaurants! Being military, we've frequented many far off places and experienced a number of Indian food establishments around the world. The atmosphere is polished and professional while being comfortable and entertaining at the same time. The food is outstanding and served graciously and prompt. Cloth linens, elegant cutlery and serving vessels elevate the dining experience way above the competition. Highly recommended!
Great Indian food in a surprising location – We saw a sign for Desi Spice while visiting Trader Joe's. We've been dying for a good curry since we left the UK, and were very pleasantly surprised by Desi Spice. Their lunch special was a fantastic deal. We'd love to go back for dinner sometime.
Disappointing – Desperately needed a fix of Indian food and this is where we ended up. Yes, the wait staff is very nice and attentive. And the food doesn't stink but it sure isn't up to snuff. Their chutneys were more like watered down syrup. Found one kind of dead lump of mango in the mango chutney, the mint chutney was sour cream based and whatever that hot chutney was I'll never know. The rice was tasty but on the overall, I'd say that things were below average. We're going to have to cast about for a new spot I guess. Oh, in terms of location, nothing wrong with that location at all. Easy to get to in a revitalized shopping center thanks to Trader Joe's.
awesome food, awesome service! – great restaurant. the owner is awesome and is always down to earth with his clients. the food is also spectacular. anything and everything here is perfect. i would highly encourage people who are looking for another indian restaurant to try out desi spice. will definitely go again.
Great take-out. – My husband and I get takeout here at least once a month. Really great food, authentic and great service. It is wonderful to have a decent Indian restaurant in Midtown! Try the tandoori wings, they rock!
Best Veggie dishes, spices, sauces, and samosas anywhere. – Amazing. I would eat there every day if I could. Prices are okay, but everything else is perfect.
Service is wonderful; food is the *best* I've had; their lunch specials are great ~ every day
but Sunday; and they will make your dish exactly as mild mild or super hot! as you like. My
picks: Samosa, Garlic Nan (lots of fresh garlic here), Mixed Vegetable Curry (I get it hot!), Sag
Aloo, and Aloo Gobi (spelling?).
Also, their onion chutney and mint chutney are awesome. Thumbs up!
Love the family and everyone else who works there. Outside seating is nice. Inside seating is
romantic. Can be casual or dressy ~ everyone welcome.
