Now Open!

From India With Love

DESI is an old India cafe that harks back to the cafes of old India, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the way they did back home. From India, with love. We pay homage to the cafes of old – reigniting the hustle & bustle of their faded elegance. True love, Rediscovered. DESI

Important Update in light of lockdown

Due to the announcement of a further national lockdown, it is with great regret we are unable to open our doors as planned on 1st Feb to invite you to dine-in with us with our 50% off launch offer. However, this does not mean it’s not going to happen! We are simply postponing the offer until it is safe to do so and restrictions are lifted. So, please do continue to sign up for the 50% off launch offer. We’ll adjust the dates as soon as we know when we can legally and safely invite you to dine-in with us. In the meantime, we’re determined this lockdown won’t delay us any further, so we will be opening for delivery and collection Monday 25th January. If you want to be informed of progress, menus and how to order, you can subscribe for updates here. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Collection orders placed directly with us lovingly receive a 20% discount. To place your collection order directly, please call us on  023 92 865 795
