Launch Event

From India With Love

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.

Launch Event

From India With Love

DESI 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

The cafe culture of Old India has all but disappeared. They broke the boundaries between colony and creed. These cafes were the site for adda – simply a place to meet old friends and make new ones. It was the food & drink that brought us together. We take you back to a time, a wonderful Old India.

Here at DESI, reminiscent of cafe’s of Old India, we’ve created a home to bring together people of all walks of life to gather over a cup of chai, a simple snack or a hearty meal. Rediscovering the traditional ways that food was cooked, served and shared. Our food is prepared as if we were cooking in our own homes. Needless to say, we are “NOT A CURRY HOUSE” so expect the pleasantly unexpected. Prepare your taste buds to be tantalised.
