“Best among a tough crowd”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

There are a lot of Indian restaurants in and around Cincinnati but Dusmesh stands out to me because of the variety of their menu, and more importantly, the variety on their buffet. As a vegetarian I get used to having most place offer 2-3 options but they usually have 5-6. The buffet is kept hot and fresh nan comes out of the kitchen every 10 minutes or so. Love this place!

“Under new ownership. No longer the best, but still very good!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

This used to be our favorite Indian restaurant in Cincinnati. A few months ago we noticed that the overall quality dropped and wondered why. We soon learned that the restaurant had been sold and has a new staff and chef. It's still a very good Indian restaurant, just no longer any better than most of the others in Cincinnati. I still recommend it. The buffet is acceptable and the prices are low.

“Better Indian Food Can Be Had”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

First the positives. Easy parking. Nice décor. Wait staff is attentive. Food portions are ample. However, the carpet was littered. No one seem to care. The food does not have the depth of flavor found in some of Cincinnati's other Indian restaurants. Some people swear by Dusmesh. Not me.

“Dusmesh Revisited”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

This restaurant is but a shell of it's former self. It is under new ownership and. simply stated, it is not the same. Service is mediocre at best. For example our main courses were served before wee received our plates. The food was not hot when served. Overall a great disappointment as this was our favorite restaurant for a number of years. So sad.

“Mmmmmm....wonderful buffet.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

We visited Dusmesh on a Sunday afternoon, and were pleased to find a buffet. This was only my second visit to an Indian restaurant, so I was excited by the variety. I tried a bit of almost everything on the buffet and each dish was wonderful. Among our choices were - turnip marsala (one of my favorites) chicken curry, goat curry, Tandori chicken, saag paneer, tomato soup, bhatura, egg Bhurji, Rav Ratan Korma, vegetable Pakora, and Kheer. Many of the dishes on the buffet were refilled during our hour long visit. What a bargain for under $20 for the two of us.
