Decent Indian restaurant in Melbourne. Staff are friendly and food is tasty

dined on Fri, 27 Oct 2017

We thought we'd try Desi Dhaba before heading to a gig at the Forum Theatre. Although the service was a little chaotic and several staff came to clarify our order, staff were friendly and the food was delicious. There was an error with our order which was proactively rectified without us having to ask - always a nice touch! I would eat here again.

Great indian food. After reading many reviews that were good and bad, not quite sure what to expect. Best indian food I have had since working in India in 1988. Staff were brilliant, service quick and majority of customers were Indian families, groups or business men. Will become a local favourite.
