Dil is a good Indian restaurant with reasonable food prices in Lusaka. Its ideal for small parties and get togethers. You need to book in advance if you are planning a party. And, you may even negotiate the package.

Been before, will definitely be going again, food is so good (great to have such veggy variety, and north/central Indian food rather than Bangladeshi). Service is fantastic, and generally around 600kwatcha for a family of 4 to eat with drinks. Yum.
