Still the only Indian worth visiting in Dundee. Staff are excellent - polite, friendly and professional. Restaurant is lovely, smart modern decor. Food still unrivalled for quality. Long live the Dil Se. Mr McLean, loyal customer for at least 13 years.

We had the pre 7pm menu and it was good value..... But.... Whilst reasonable value there was a sweetness to all the dishes that was not necessary. The naan wasnt fresh. Kingfisher on draft is good. Overall decent food at decent price.

My girlfriends and I had an incredible meal here sharing starters and tucking into some great tasting mains. The staff were extremely friendly and more than helpful when helping one of us find some dishes we'd love - and we did!
