Many years of reliable excellent food and service, 9/24/2010

I used to travel to India often and love the food, as do my wife and children. Over the last 5 years we have eaten there many times and we have never once been disappointed. My personal... favorites are the Tandoori food, especially the grouper and VERY generous Tandoori Platter Special. May be too much food for some. Peas Pallao are a treat, as is the Rogan-E-Lamb and most of the pea and potato vegetable dishes. The vindaloos are spicy, but they tone down most of the dishes to suit the American palate. Ask for them to be Indian hot if you like Indian food.

Disappointed

I had been a huge fan of "Touch of India" until they sold it off..it became a horrible place to eat...these were the original owners(Deli Spice), so I was happy to try the new place. My favorite was always Chicken Kashmiri...OMG..DO NOT ORDER!! It was awful..it had so much gristle and fat and was extremely chewy! Naan was fine, Somosas was luke warm. Such a shame too...geuss I'll continue my search for GOOD Indian cuisine...this just isn't the place!

Best Indian Restaurant Ever!

Our favorite restaurant! The food is wonderful - they use the best quality ingredients - everything is fresh. The people that work there are so very nice, too. We always enjoy our visits - food and service are great. Love to sit on the patio when its nice out. All the food is great - from appetizers to dessert. My husband has tried Indian restaurants when traveling - in major US cities and even oversea - nothing comes even close to Desi Indian Spice.

Hidden Gem

Best in Atlanta I think. Hidden from the beaten path, but well worth looking for! Near Ga Tech, Ga State & Piedmont Park.

One of the better Indian restaurants in Atlanta

After moving to Atlanta I searched all over for a great Indian restaurant. The food is great and the service is friendly. Sitting on the patio in the Spring or on a Summer evening makes for a nice dinner.

Awesome food

The food is outstanding. The atmosphere is what you would expect - not the best, but still fun (look for the Bollywood movies playing in the corner while you eat).
