   Desai Lounge by Tony K

I've always enjoyed my visits here and I have been a customer here since it's days as the Nawaab.Great food friendly staff good service and pleasant modern decor.

   Great experience by Sue

   the best by peter norton

only been there twice so far but its enough to realise that the food is the tastiest ive ever had

   Top food 5star by Dan

Stay away from any other resturant Desi lounge is the best

   Excellent place by Sam

Lovely surroundings, very willing staff and possibly some of the best food in Manchester. The vegetarian options are superb and plentiful, and certainly not the usual run of the mill things you usually get. Any place with paneer tikka as lovely as theirs gets full marks from me! :)

   Excellence by Patrick and Family

Have been a regular for a decade or so, following the restaurant from its original Collyhurst home. The food is first class, the ambience is perfect for a curry and Faz and his team are always hospitable. Highly recommended.

   Can't beat it by Gill and Keith

We are regulars at Desi lounge (formerly Nawab) and have never been disappointed. From the moment we step through the front door and are greeted by manager Faz and staff, until we leave we are treated like friends. The food is delicious and although I stick to the same dish Keith is working his way through the menu and I always pinch some off his plate. We always look forward to returning and we have never been disappointed.

   Fantastic by Pratik

Went here on a date with my GF, and I have to say I was really pleased with my evening. Service was great, waiters were friendly and not pushy as in other places. Standard of food was excellent, they got the level of chilli just right. I recommend the chicken shashlik and chicken handi. My favourite restaurant in and around manchester for sure, makes Rusholme look like a joke...

   Best ever! by Amy

There is nowhere in Britain that can compare to the quality and flavour of the dishes at Desi Lounge (formally Nawab). Cannot imagine how anyone could write this restaurant a bad review - whenever any of my family come to visit they insist on eating at Desi!

   so glad i went :) by terry

Just returned form there, its just round the corner from me and wasnt in the mood to drive to rushomle after tonights meal I wont be driveing to Rusholme again The food was fantastic :) Would have got a 10 out of 10 if the waiter asked me if I wanted popadoms when he took the drinks order :)

   Desi Lounge is simply the best - mouth watering dishes by JASON

Being an avid fan of Indian food (eating it at least once a week) we have tried numerous establishments of indian cuisine and this is definitely our favourite over a 20 year period. Everyone has their own favourite place probably depending on their favourite dish and perhaps some balance that with the cost of the meal. However the quality of the food here is excellent, not only the culmination of the flavours, but if you donít like cheap meat then this is the place for you. The management are very attentive without being obtrusive and it amazes us how they appear to remember all those who make a repeat visit, or perhaps its simply that people keep going back. The overall atmosphere is designed to put one at ease and comfort. We moved over a year ago, but even though we are 25 miles away, we still canít resist going back for more. EXCELLENT.

   Superb! by Libby
