This place is phenomenal. The food is out of this world and well worth visiting Hayes just for this.

Food and atmosphere of the restaurant is quite nice and price is quite reasonable too. Only little concern is service which needs a little push to be quicker. Overall it was very good experience

This is our favourite restaurant to go to or to have a take away when around the area. It's not a special occasion place but we eat here regularly and enjoy the food here every time. It is very loud so there won't be much of a conversation but you will enjoy a dance from the waiters in the evening.

good food and a boisterous atmosphere -desi style. we had a fun family night, kids loved the bhangra dancing and joined in! if you want a quiet formal meal, then go elsewhere.

I've been a customer for about 10 years and the food has been consistently excellent. I've taken family, business friends and held celebrations at the Desi Tadka. The service is very good, in a basic punjabi style - with one exception of one terse waiter.

Visited today with some friends, impressed with the taste however disappointed with the quantity. Highly recommend if you prefer quality over quantity. Also difficult to get attention of the staff due to loud music in the evening. Overall it was okay.
