We ordered a large dinner for four online from them on a Tuesday at 7:14pm. The man at the restaurant promised delivery in 25 minutes. When I called in one hour later to say that the order had not arrived he got nasty and said...'what can I do'? I said that he had promised quick delivery and my friends had travelled several hours and were hungry and jetlagged. He said they were not a prepared meal service and banged the phone down. I am certain that my thick ethnic accent made him feel that he can be as rude as he likes to me. Oh and their food was really confusing; nothing Indian about the so-called Dal. The chappatis tasted stale and reheated.More

Read reviews and decided to give this restaurant a try. I'll start with the positives: Nice spacious restaurant with modern decor. Attentive and friendly staff. That's where it stops! The quality of the food was extremely poor. Tandoori chicken was really dry, and had obviously...been reheated. Fresh tandoori chicken should be nice and moist. My husband had the mixed tikka, again very dry, and I would question if it was actually lamb that was served. Portions were small for the price charged. I always visit Indian restaurants on my travels and this is up there with the worst. Don't waste your money on this restaurant, there are plenty of other good quality indian restaurants in Dundee area.More

I have used Dil Se on Perth Road since it opened. Whoever greets you at the door is very polite and smiling. I remember Michael and his insistence of having a seat and a refreshment while waiting to collect a carry out myself. Along with...my wife, family and Friends we have had many meals downstairs and have hired upstairs on couple of occasions. Always good night's. Lovely menu and one of our favourites recently is the curried fish dishes. Always reliable for a great lamb or chicken biryani. Then of course the best Naan in town. This is our carry out of choice. For the second time recently though our much favoured Naan was forgotten in bag. I should have checked myself. I called to complain but found this hard as it is our favourite go to place. Much to the management great credit they offered us a free curry and Naan. That is going above and beyond duty. Thanks so much. Look forward to being able to sit in again and share a meal and drinks with family and friends.More

Have ordered takeaways every fortnight and can honestly say the quality of food for every meal has been excellent. Not the cheapest but quality is spot on. Recommend the chicken tikka with a bhuna sauce. Naan bread is the only disappointment.

Was really looking forward to a home delivery from here tonight. £60 in total and was a total waste of money. Tandoori chicken was really dry, naan breads were flavourless doe and quality of the food was poor. My daughters chicken korma was actually pretty...nice but the rest of the food was not nearly up to scratch. We enjoyed a sit down meal here about a year ago and read good reviews recently but was probably the worst Indian takeaway Iv had from a restaurant.More

A lovely venue and excellent takeaway set up even during Covid. I phoned to order and rather than get it delivered I thought I would collect a takeaway. The staff were very kind and professional. Even though it was Saturday evening and clearly they were...busy they made time to ensure everything was in order with the collection in a friendly manner. Just as important the food was excellent and authentic. I gather they had even donated meals for NHS staff during the pandemic and given the difficult time for hospitality just sums up how how good the restaurant is.More

Hi there, I don't know if they still do the buffet on a Sunday but the Jahangir buffet is excellent and I recommend it. Dil Se do an early evening menu for £15 or so which is good value Hope this helps
