We visited in January and it was very quiet as it was dry January. Food was very good and service excellent. Staff explained the menu and the prices were very fair. Well worth a visit.

Really lovely food (omg the naans!) and the staff are friendly, helpful and just lovely. This is the best Indian in Chelmsford and you must try it. It never disappoints

Never disappointing, tried a new curry this evening, Manchurian. Safe to say it will not be the last, a different taste experience and one I would highly recommend. Staff always attentive but in no way intrusive

What would you want more!? Great atmosphere, tasty food and nice staff. One of the best places in Chelmsford! Try the Manchurian lamb or chicken. They also cook food off the menu as you please.

Went with 14 friends table booked for 8pm finally got food at 9.45pm. Asked twice for glass of water. Asked for chicken tikka masala given lamb. Staff not friendly. Only thing that made the night was the company. I won't be going again

It's actually quite hard to find decent 'Indian' food in Chelmsford. All the restaurants are actually Bangladeshi, apart from one South Indian one. Desi isn't bad at all. They do a nice tandoori fish, butter chicken and a few other dishes, and offer a delivery...More

This was a very nice experience, although very early evening and not yet busy. Warm welcome. The food was very good, well presented and tastes to match. The service was excellent. Certainly will consider returning as it is so close to middle of town.

After a long time of trying to find a decent Indian takeaway in Chelmsford, we have finally found one. The food was really tasty & full of flavour. A nice little touch with hand wipes & takeaway bag. Would definitely recommend. Wouldn't hesitate to order...More
