Great Indian food, I've been trying to make my own Indian meals at home, but this place is everso tasty.

If it is a taste from the east with a kick, this is the place to get it. Everything is cooked fresh and tastes amazing. Also some new dishes that other restaurants don't have on their menu.

The only restaurant we use for authentic food in our area.

We've been using Desi Pakwan for some time and always recommended it to friends, but not any more. We ordered a takeaway last night and it took three hours to get delivered. During the three hours I called twice to which I was told it would be ten minutes. Between 9 and 9:30 I tried calling to cancel the order and get a refund but it was engaged constantly. When the food finally arrived, the pakora was cold and soft, the prawn poori was average, the curry was so greasy and the naan was soggy and cold. Will not be returning, poor show Desi Pakwan.

Food is always fresh and very tasty. Yes you have to wait a while on delivery but it’s worth it.

We always enjoy your vegitarian options and the selection is great (although we would love to see an aubergine dish without potatoes on the menu. Also we would like to let you know that there was very little paneer in our paneer Korma and Patia - for the price we would expect a more generous amount however the sauces were both delicious and your tarka dal is exceptional. It always takes a while for delivery but we dont mind waiting for your great food. I hope you take our notes on board as we will order the same things again in the near future! Thank you and Kind regards.

Ordered kid’s meals and fish pakora with juice after one and half hour got tasteless fish with chips and without juice. Phone restaurant and asked about juice and lady replied that they will send it . It’s was my second bad experience with restaurant. So disappointed

I love you guys more than life itself

Robbie, 09 Oct 2020

I am a little disappointed! I haven’t eat with you in months and the prices have gone up by at least 30% and the portion sizes are terrible. £5 for 4 tiny chicken wings? £5 for 6 small dry pakora?? Chapatis were thin and crispy too! Not enough food at all for over £20! You were always my favourite but now I can’t justify all that money for so little food . Note to manager... you have lost a long time customer... Remi Akande 07515928553

Best place in Edinburgh

Tonight we ordered at 18.02, delivery then stated as 1 hour 15 minutes. After 1 hour and 30 minutes I called the restaurant and was assured the order had just been sent for delivery. However, it was a further 30 minutes before the food arrived (we live about a 10 minute drive away). Whilst I appreciate it was a busy evening, I am not happy with the time form order to delivery being literally, almost exactly, 2 hours. The food was excellent, as it has been with all the orders we have had, but the service was unsatisfactory. If there is to be that much delay, I would expect the restaurant to call and apologise, so we know there is a problem. We eat together as a family and this was too late for our daughter. I would like a response and would hope to be informed of delays in future. 07796692394

After waiting over an hour. Some Of order was missing. Couldn’t get through on phone. When finally did. No apologies. Woman said I may have to wait another hour for the rest as they were “busy” and hung up? Foods now lying getting cold. Disappointing as the is a regular occurrence.

Could you please remember my salad this time. :-)

Patricia, 03 Oct 2020
