We were founded in 1962 by the Choudhury family, originally hailing from Bangal, who rapidly went on to become a legend within the Bangali community. Students, politicians and many a dreamer ate our 'taste of home' and even found shelter in this very building before going on to forge the country we now call Bangladesh. Over many years we gave our own twist to traditional Bangali dishes, which came to be loved by city gents and barrow boys alike ¬recipes which defined a typical curry house men u up and down the country...we trained many of the original chefs, after all. Our food is born from a region that was a crossroads for Persian scholars, Afghan traders, Arab adventurers and English East India men all throwing their unique spirit into the pot. This is the taste of Dil Chad, heartfelt food cooked in our kitchen since '62.

    My party arrived at the meeting point to have a few drinks before we would cross the road to the Dil Chad at 7:15PM prompt. At 6:15PM my party totaled just the 14 in number and not the 16 i had booked. So, out of courtesy i popped across the road just to let Dil Chad know that we would be 2 less than the original booking. When i arrived i found that the Dil Chad was boarded up in the windows and was not in fact open at all. The put me in a extremely difficult position. some of the party had traveled down from up north (including my boss). it was a totally embarrassing situation. it was extremely cold that evening and it destroyed my colleagues retirement as we had to rome the streets (of which none of us are familiar with) to find an alternative restaurant. we didn't find an alternative and had to give up!

    Bit of a shame really. Booked through Open Table for 12 people at 1pm on Friday 15th Jan and received an email confirmation of booking. However, restaurant shut! I emailed them to confirm something, and received an email back from them on Saturday saying they were shut for 6 weeks for refurbishment. Obviously, this was not helpful as had to try and find somewhere else for 12 people to eat at 1pm on a Friday lunchtime and everywhere is so busy. If a restaurant is going to close for a few weeks, why can you still make a booking online and get a confirmation for it?

    The service was pushy and added items to the bill which we didn't order but were charged with - wasn't a big deal but it was a bit cheeky. The food was satisfactory and was good value.

    Food is very good and there is plenty of choice. The only negative is that there is very little time between courses and it has a feeling of rush -almost like a fast food place.

    We booked here on a 50% off food deal, which was not valid when we arrived - however after explaining our misunderstanding the restaurant honoured the deal which was very appreciated. Curry was delicious, not huge portions but I left very full.

    I was trying to find a reasonably priced restaurant near Liverpool St which had good options for vegetarians; was quiet enough for a serious chat with a good friend and on a Friday night! I didn't think I would find somewhere but this place really fit the bill. Good food in a relaxed and quiet atmosphere with attentive service. Will definitely go back.
