Office Lunch - When our CEO visits from UK, he buys us lunch (YAY!) His choice is most often Indian. We tried Desi Turka after a bit of research of nearby Indian Restaurants. We were not disappointed by trying them! They were accommodating (we didn't give a lot of notice); helpful (carried everything out to our car); generous (gave us a complimentary appetizer tray); and most importantly... the food was delicious!! I will certainly encourage the choice to be Indian Food again for his next visit, and will most definitely order from Desi Turka again! More...
Awesome food, outstanding customer service... depak was amazing

Professional manager ,excellent service and great food, i highly recommending tandoori salmon served with mint sauce; make sure to ask well done it !!!!!,
good food, nice staff, Highly recommended!
Went to this Indian food gem for a family dinner. Our host was very polite and helpful to make sitting arrangements for us. We were served in very timely manner and their service was as great as their food. We felt like eating at home. All the dishes were cooked to perfection with accurate amount of spices. We had Mogo, Shahi paneer and chicken chettinad mainly and few more dishes.Serving staff was very professional. Must recommend this place for family gatherings or dinners. Next time we looking forward for their Lunch Buffet. More...
Great Service and Food was delicious.We went there by reviews and it was not at all disappointed. Food portion was fantastic and owners was very friendly... Must visit place...
Carlos Manuel Arias
Excelent plates and cheap
tasted great. will recommend!
Good food and good portions. However, I took my son for lunch and was not able to use the groupon for the buffet. Had to order a la carte as the lunch specials in the menu were not available and ended up spending twice as much as the buffet special. Server was not familiar with serving sizes, so we ended up ordering twice as much rice as we needed. Would go again for the lunch buffet but would not bother with Groupon. More...
This restaurant is located at the corner of 12th Ave and 6th street in New West. It has a sign outside saying under new management. This is my second time back for their lunch buffet! The buffet price is very reasonable at $10.95. Can't be beat! Lots of varieties, plus including tea you can grab for yourselves. Food is fresh and naan bread is served hot which you dip in the sauces from your dishes! So delish!! Service is excellent, the server was always attentive; making sure your have water in your glass, and that your food tasted great. I think the location is not the best and therefore it's kind of hidden, but if you are around there make sure you give it a try! You won't be disappointed! More...
The food was delicious and we all had a great time!

Overall good place
Chicken vindaloo was good!!
Good, clean atmosphere and service!
The chicken in my chicken curry was super tender. Delivery was lightning fast and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.
Basic Buffet lunch. Small selection but enough as it was only $10.95.Had curries, rice/naan, a salad, rice pudding for dessert and chai or water.
Best chicken Biryani place
Went there with family for family dinner, my mom visiting me from India and she was amazed with the food taste and quality. Everything we ordered had rich spices taste and with very less oil. Service was also pleasant. Must recommended for family dinners. More...
Very good food. I ordered the lamb biryani and butter chicken. I love how you can choose different spice levels. These chefs dont mess around though so make sure if you pick hot you really meen HOT. Butter chicken was tender and not fatty at all, lamb was also delicious. Ill be ordering again. More...
Great food.. Good location.. like their buffet..friendly Manager..and Chef Amir is excellent
I have heard of this place from one of my friends. I found this place very nice. I ensured that I receive the same good quality of meal in every serving, they did so. Especially their lunch buffet was delicious! More...
Very good quality food, friendly staff and although there aren't endless options for the buffet, there are sufficient, and all very tasty. Definitely recommended.
The best place in the town to have indian food. The owner and staff is really great. We go there every weekend. The ambiance is really cozy and friendly. I recommend this place.
We went there because we received a coupon in the mail and like trying something new. We had 2 chicken dishes and prawn curry. Everything had great flavour and a good level of spiciness (we love spicy food). Would not have gone here without the coupon because it's not very noticable but will definitely go again! More...

Nice lunch with great food. Flavour variety was very good. Recommended to go.
Methi chicken that I tried was good
Good food, cozy place.
Rakib Mahmud Pranto
Tried their biryani and samosa. Both were very authentic as i used to have when i stayed in india for study. Restaurant is very clean and staff is very professional.
Deepak the owner is very friendly. The lunch special is a great deal for what you get and he makes amazing food I often take my staff here for their birthday lunch and treat myself here for my lunch. I have noticed sometimes the restaurant is not open on time and the buffet is not set up when the time says it's supposed to be. Sometimes some of the waitresses or waiters are not ensuring that the candles are lit under the buffet to ensure the food stays hot. However when Deepak is there service is always great and food is always fresh he is always checking on the customers and always ensuring they have enough free nan with their Buffet and enough water and drinks. I have never felt rushed or not wanted in his restaurant. A shout out to deepak for the great service and hopefully his employees can learn from him. I will be seeing you soon and I also make sure that I recommend others to visit your restaurant. More...
First time eating here, food was great. The chicken biryani was awesome. Vegetable samosas are really good. The white sauce with the fish pakora was nice and better than the green chutney. Staff was pleasant on the phone and in person. Will be eating here again soon. More...
René Benoit Brisson
They make the BEST Biryani I have ever eaten! Tout simplement délicieux!
The food was awesome and excellent service.
Been dere usually evry weekend!!! The quality of food is fabulous and very freshly. The behavior from honour’s side is commendable and he personally attend gently evryone.
I loved the fish chilli in buffet..the ambience is very good.. And the owner is very warm and amiable..
nice food I love their Samosa
AAnik X Ahmed
Had Lamb Biriyani, Butter Nun, Gulab Jamun & Milk Tea. One of the finest Indian Cuisine I've ever had. Loved it and will definitely come back again...
Great food and service;must recommend this restaurant for authentic Indian food
I went to this restaurant a while back, and forgot to leave a review. I have been to a wide range of Indian restaurants in Surrey/Delta and i can say that this restaurant is pretty good. There is a decent amount of parking in the back and the restaurant is pretty clean ( all in comparison to other indian restaurants i been to). The waiters/waitress are nice and helpful but could be more vocal. The price and dish sizes are good although the dish sizes can be a tad bit larger. Being Indian i know the authentic flavouring for each dish and this restaurant is pretty close to it for the location its at. The naans came out great and the chicken doesnt feel it was frozen nor too cubed. I would def come back here to eat. More...
Great food homemade style, cosy place for dining in and friendly waitresses.
Great food and customer service, ambience is also cozy.
We had ordered with Kajal she provided awesome customer service.
Yummy butter chicken. Naan was soft and fluffy. Service was great. We come here to satisfy our Indian cravings. There are groupons and ET book coupons you can use for this place. They supposedly have a pretty good lunch buffet too for 10.95 (which we havent tried yet). Weekdays 11:30 - 3:00. More...
wonderful service and taste food..
Went there for dinner with family, servers were welcoming. All the dishes we ordered were great in taste with real indian spices.must recommend this restaurant for authentic indian food. More...
Good food in the towns.i like it.txs
Love this place, everytime I go here it feels so warm and cozy and the staff are so helpful and attentive. this is my favourite restaurant to eat at, feels like being in someone's home for lunch/dinner. Food wasn't that spicy either and my 7 month old baby loved trying some things and was pleased. Thank you for a nice lunch! More...
Arora Gourav A&g
Very polite staff and good service and i ate paneer tikka that was so tasty , i recommend to all come here with family or friends for having delicious and authentic indian food
Amazing food guys, you would enjoy this tasty meal at very generous prices. Highly recommended service and food. Keep up guys.
W are blessed with many good Indian restaurants in the Lower Mainland and this is one of the best I have tried. It has some different flavours than standard which I really enjoyed. The lunch buffet is also excellent value but only available Monday to Friday. Have enjoyed dinner there twice now and will be back. What a find in a little place in Burnaby. After many years Burnaby and New West are getting some really great ethnic restaurants . This is one of them. More...
Great food and great service!
Great authentic food with blend of perfection.Service is great and professional.
The best don't miss it good is fantastic
Best food even! Should try it on
This place was really good! The Eggplant Bhartha and Bhindi Bhaji were the stand out dishes and I highly recommend everyone to try them. Overall a really heartwarming meal that's great for a rainy day in Vancouver. More...
The tika masala and chicken vendallo are so delicious.The best Indian cuisine that Ive tried by far! I strongly recommend this place.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have never been to the restaurant but always order through skip the dishes. These guys are generous with their portions. If you order biryani, the ensure that there is sufficient meat and same for other entrees. Thank you for taking care of your take out customers like they are actually in the restaurant. Will keep ordering more More...

Good food, good price and good service
Too expensive for what it is but good food
The atmosphere is nice and food is absolutely delicious!!! We had Manchurian chicken, chicken vindaloo, and lamb. The pulao rice went well with everything along with garlic naan. Such amazing flavours. Excellent customer service. We had a lot of fun watching the current Indian music videos. More...
I took my mom for dinner at this hidden gem and we both had a great experience. First of all its true that its hard to notice from the outside but once you open the doors and step in you can't help noticing how well-kept and attentive they are. It's nicely decorated and clean! Our waiter happened to be the owner and it definitely showed because the service was on point and Deepak was extremely hospitable. My mom and I both enjoy dining and we could tell that the ingredients were of good quality and fresh - not reheated! They have an all-you-can-eat lunch special so i im looking forward to that. Oh yes there are plenty of vegetarian and gluten free dishes to choose from too!! More...
Super good Indian good in Burnaby area! We used the groupon but the value is there even without the discount. Curry and Nann was really fresh and servers although busy, were friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend the chicken tika masala! More...
first time in here for lunch buffet. I highly recommend the place. great waiter we had today. he always made sure our water is filled and ask if we need more naan bread. no need to go to Surrey nor Delta for lunch buffet. glad to have this is in community. :-) More...
Best Tandoori food in town. Enjoyed every meal we ordered and staff is awesome. The owner personally attended our table and asked about the food and service. Will recommend 100% and will come here again. Give it a try folks you will know what you’ve been missing More...
Good food friendly staff
We went twice in the last week.This restaurant was actually less than five minutes from our house but we never knew it was there! Luckily, we saw a Groupon deal and bought the Groupon to use.We had a pleasant lunch (à la carte) the first time and ordered an order of samosas (yum!), lamb curry (super delicious) and lamb vindaloo (that was okay). We also had rice, naan and garlic naan on the side. Very delicious meal. (Oh and we ordered a kid's meal for my toddler...$4 for butter chicken, "Indian fries" and a whole order of naan. Great deal!)We came back a week later for the lunch buffet. They had butter chicken and chicken curry and other vegetarian dishes. The food was incredible...my only complaint is that their buffet was often empty (they had a full restaurant, but the buffet wasn't getting refilled fast enough). The butter chicken and chicken curry had no chicken left by the time half of our table got a dish, and it was only refilled once we finished the first dish. The naan was refilled quickly, which was nice. Their dessert (some sort of rice pudding) and chai was very good and not too sweet, which we liked. They also often ran out of utensils and plates/cups and the costumers had to keep asking for them to refill (which they did, three at a time).We will be back to try to buffet another day... hopefully the food will be refilled more often. If not, we may need to stick with the à la carte menu. However, $10.95 for a lunch buffet is amazing. Their food is great and the waiter/waitress are delightful. More...
Good food. Worth the wait
Favorite Indian food place just the way I like it. It has different spice levels and the amount of food they give is a lot.
Always fine food. Tasteful setting. Great service. Food prepared to order.
The best Indian food in the Lower Mainland.
Limited selection for vegetarians in the buffet but it's super tasty and really clean claycl place. I'd come back for sure!!
Very good food. Good service. Was delisous.
Friendly staff. Enjoyed lunch buffet. 2 meat, 2 Veg items.. And various items that come with the buffet. It was average indian food. Nothing to complain about. Was satisfying. Nice atmosphere...I'll be going back. And love that the prices are fair! More...
The food is amazing. The spices and herbs are all fresh. First time trying fresh cinnamon and clove - very intense flavours. Highly recommended. Service is impeccable and server checks up on you consistently.They also do take outs.Must try their butter chicken and garlic naan bread. More...
Very delicious food! Great service! Owner cares about customers’ feedback, very positive! Glad to have such a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood! Definitely come back again and refer to friends! More...

Super friendly, great selection, inexpensive, and some of the best Indian food I've ever had and I grew up in Surrey... also the waitress was really pretty... I was the guy wearing the light great blazer and black hat, having dinner with his mom ;) More...
Friendly service. We ask for it spicy we got what we wish. Feel like home cooking. Simple but it’s good.
We visited this restaurent last night. This is one of the most delicious indian meals we have ever eaten. The menu is extensive and varied and caters for all tastes of indian cuisine. Highly recommended.
Today i went to Desi Turka with my family. We ate chicken curry, garlic nan, pulau rice sahi paneer and vegi pakora. Food was yum yum. My daughter loves their mango shake. Staffs were very friendly.I will visit again. More...
Ordered takeout via Skip The Dishes. Excellent quality food that is absolutely delicious. Very reasonably priced and delivery was free with an order over $20. And the portions were huge! I'll have plenty leftover tomorrow. More...
We ordered food for pickup, the service was fast and the food was good. We would certainly go back to this place.
One of the best food to try indian spicy food. Prices are so good and worth.
Good vegetarian food.
New owners doing really good job. They make the best cheese chilli out of all the restraurents in vancouver. Excellent service and friendly.
Small place, but well done. Food was very tasty. 4 stars because there was a TV mounted on the wall that had a music video of a lady singing a very repetitive tune literally the entire time I was there. I found that particular song very irritating and it never ended. Staff were very nice though. More...
Love the new menu here. The food is much much better now.
Jack n Carol Taylor
Very good, planning our return.
I loved the food to be honest. You cannot beat the price and the quality on this one.
Good food n service
This place has the best kheer in town!
We went there with a group of people. It was an amazing experience with authentic taste of indian food. Service was pretty amazing. Tables were pretty clean and tidy.
Today, i visited here with my friends it is one of the best indian restaurant i ever visited.
Loved the food and the environment. Had an amazing experience.
I visted the desi turka Indian cuisine today. Very delicious food and good service.
The best Indian food I’ve ever had after a while. Had an awesome experience at Desi Tarka.
Good food. Friendly staff.
Ordered butter paneer and lamb korma dishes from this place and they were both really tasty. Fish pakoras appetizer was good, but I enjoyed the other two dishes more. I was 20 minutes late for pick up as I went to a wrong location but the food was still warm when I unpacked it at home. Staff were nice, and prices are reasonable. More...
Looks like new management is doing great.Ultimate food and service..always eat here to nurture your taste buds.
Their food as compared to most Indian restaurants I have been to specially in Surrey area is better and very tasty. Good portion and authentic taste.
This place has transformed in great food hub.. looks like change in management. Dining ambience and food quality is of high standard. Serving staff is helpful beyond their duties. More...
Always great quality and presentation
I ordered aloo parathas . Were so delicious, i like the food and atmosphere. Would luv to visit here again .
One of the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to so far in Canada with not only delicious Indian food but also with an amazing environment.
Superb! Sensational flavours, fresh ingredients and pleasant, cozy atmosphere.

I was starving after work so threw my headphones on and hopped on the bus. I hadn’t eaten Indian food for awhile so figured I’d give this place a shot. Went in, ordered, stepped out for a sec to spit some lyrics. Went back in, Boom, faster than 911 my kickass food was ready... I went to town, then bounced... More...
Came to eat in and the food and service was really good. Very nice serving staff and the food was amazing too

Along 6th Street, near the Burnaby-New Westminster border, a rather unassuming restaurant named Desi Turka Indian Cuisine serves up some fairly good East Indian fare. If it wasn’t for the aroma of Indian spices emanating from restaurant, you’d hardly know that it was there. Inside the smallish restaurant (about 28-30 seats), the decor is sparse yet well maintained. On all of my visits during the weekday lunch hour, it was hardly busy and I was usually the only one there. They’ve mentioned that it gets busier during the evening and that they have a fairly robust take-out business. ...Read full post on pennyandrusty.wordpress.com More...

If it wasn't for the aroma of Indian spices emanating from restaurant, you'd hardly know that it was there.Inside the smallish restaurant (about 28-30 seats), the decor is sparse yet well maintained. On all of my visits during the weekday lunch hour, it was hardly busy and I was usually the only one there. They've mentioned that it gets busier during the evening and that they have a fairly robust take-out business.On my first visit, I opted for their Lamb Curry Lunch Special ($8.95) which comes with rice, naan, dal, raita, and a slightly sweet rice pudding. I thought that the rice was a bit on the dry side but the lamb was quite good with tender chunks in a medium spicy sauce. The naan was also quite good with a crispness to the exterior while the inside parts were soft and fluffy. Personally, I'm not a big fan of raita - the cold, milky-like yoghurt never really caught on with me.On my next visit, I decided to try something from their regular menu and picked the Chicken Vindaloo ($12.75). I have a soft spot for vindaloo from watching countless hours of Red Dwarf. You can pick your level of spiciness and I've found that their "medium" isn't overly spicy. The chicken thigh meat had a nice bit of charring on the outside of some of the pieces.Since the dish is served à la carte, I ordered a side of Pulau Rice ($4.25) to accompany it. The Basmati rice is cooked in onions, spices and green peas and works perfectly in sopping up the tasty curry sauce. More...
A delightful cozy place to have delicious food! I've been coming here with my boyfriend so often I'm sure the waitress and owner knows our order. The portions are great and the prices are even better. I can't explain how each dish we've tried is an explosion of flavour and cooked so well. You need to come by and try it for yourself! The place is clean and looks like new. The music playing is also modern Indian pop? music. In my opinion, i it's very entertaining to watch and enjoy another culture. My boyfriend's parents also been here and has raves about the food and service. They know more about how the food should taste like as they themselves are Indian. I, however am just in love with how the spices balances each other out. The restaurant also gives you options on how spicy you want your food to be which is perfect for everyone. Desi Turka also has an awesome lunch buffet. They change their lunch buffet daily which means you won't get tired of the same food! They also have a great deal on Groupon as well. Overall, an excellent restaurant to eat, enjoy, and talk with your friends and family. More...
Best chicken korma I have ever had!
This is now my new favorite place for Indian food outside of my hometown in India! They recently changed owners and the food is fantastic now. The owner is exceptionally friendly and generous and has provided excellent service whenever I have been here. Everything on the menu has been excellent so far, making it hard to recommend anything in particular. More...
With the new owners, this place is outstanding. I come here for the lunch buffet for such an affordable price. My naan bread and water is always topped off ! The workers here treat you with a lot of respect which makes it a great experience here. More...
I was there last night for the first time using a Groupon I brought online and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. I plan on going back soon. I highly recommend this place. More...
It was one of those days where I was craving East Indian food and my hub and I decided to check out out entertainment book to see what's there! Desi Turka was amongst one of the restaurants listed located in the New West/ Burnaby neighbourhood so we decided to give this place a try! Service is great here. The waitress was very accomadating for taking our coupon and served and checked on us regularly. The food is really tasty too. We ordered the butter chicken, lamb korma, fish pakora and spinach sand cheese naan. They were all soo good! It was my hub' s first time trying the spinach and cheese naan and he loved it! The fish pakora was a bit smaller in portion than expected but it has a really nice and light batter and is definitely one of our favourite places for it now. More...
great service and tasty food. good portions and very authentic food!
This is a great place for dinner. The service was excellent and so was the food. For one not familiar with this style of food the server's explanations were most helpful. Portions were generous and the dessert was on the house. Highly recommended. No blaring music either. More...
The food was absolutely excellent. We say just a couple of blocks away in an Airbnb and this place came up as a great play to eat. Hubs and I are both Vegetarian(lean more towards Vegan) and they had plenty of delightful things for us to eat. We ordered what we thought was a normal about for lunch and would up with enough for another meal! We will definitely be back when we visit Vancouver again! More...
This place is amazing. Authentic and great service. Good portion size with rice included in the price! :)
I went to Desi Turka for dinner with my friends. We order Garlic Nan, Tanduri chicken, Dal and plain rice. Food was very good and yum yum. Staffs were very friendly. Server and owner Deepak served us with smile. Owner : Deepak was super nice. He recommend us to try vegi pakora. My daughter love vegi pakora. We also order Mango shake which was was super testy. We found authentic indian test. Free parking at the back. Dining area and Wash rooms were very clean. Take out and dine in is available. I will definately go again with my family. More...
Yum, yum, yummy! The only drawback to this place is the lack of street parking when you're hopping in to pick-up, but the food is definitely worth it!The portions are quite generous, and the food is delicious. We've only pick-ed up twice, but both times have been quite pleased with our lamb vindaloo/tikka masala, and mutter paneer. The prices are also quite reasonable! More...
Have only come here for lunches, which are exceptionally delicious and reasonable. When I asked for a vegetable dish with my lamb curry lunch, in lieu of Dal (or lentil curry), the owner obliged with Saag Paneer (spinach and cheese curry). The ownership changed this past Fall, so you can disregard the seemingly hostile (and troll-like) reviews from 2016. Sometimes there are unexpected add-ons too, not normally included, like papadam or a dessert. The owner and other servers are friendly and gracious. This unassuming restaurant deserves to be a standout South Asian eatery in the neighbourhood. PS: This is the same text as in my Yelp review. More...

Fantastic food. Came here visiting from Sacramento and was not disappointed. Had Dal tadka, Mattar paneer, paneer kabab, and biryani. Awesome food, would love to come again! More...
The new owners just took over 3 days ago and the place is fantastic! Not sure how it was before, but i took my best friend out for her birthday lunch here and it felt like we were being treated in an indian families home. The food was hot and delicious, beautiful spices that perfectly blended together and had a nice bite but didn't give me heartburn or a burn that lasts all day. The portions were more than generous, both my friend and i came in starving but couldn't finish it all. The food was laid out on the table in serving portions so we could share or serve ourselves. It felt like eating at home with the family. After our meal was finished they brought us a little dessert treat of something I couldn't pronounce but looked like a deconstructed carrot cake. It tasted warm, spiced and was the perfect ending to our meal. Thank you very much for a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back � More...
Best place ever I visited Great food, excellent service I loved it ��
Great food service ... Nice Owner Respect the customers ... tasty � food a1service
Wow! This friendly neighborhood family-run restaurant is quite a gem. I was in my old neighborhood but it doesn't have a very noticeable storefront so I've passed it several times without ever trying it. I found a coupon for this place in the Entertainment book and decided to try it out. Came here with my family and asked for recommendations on what to order. The owner was very nice and made some suggestions, and all three entrees we tried were AMAZING - seasoned and cooked to perfection. The owner came by and topped up our water multiple times and asked how the food is. We left the restaurant pretty stuffed and had some leftovers too, so the portion is definitely good. One thing to note is that Indian food in general is salty so order a lot of rice and naan. Here is what we ordered: Garlic nan - $2.55Pulao rice - $4.25Bombay fish curry - $13.45Lamb korma - $13.75Butter chicken - $13.75Now I know where to go the next time I'm craving Indian food! More...
Made a large order for a group and selected some dishes not commonly seen in most places, specifically the dopiaza lamb and bombay fish curry. Both were extremely exotic and completely different to the usual sauces. I agree with most of the positive reviews, they are extremely authentic and the real deal. The lamb was succulent and tender and oh yes, they also do a very good malai kofta.. the complexion was very thick and nutty. Next time im in the area i will gladly stop by again and dine in. More...
Have ordered from here for delivery and pickup at least a dozen times, never been disappointed. The food is always good and the people are very nice.
Best Butter Chicken in Town! New item special chaat papri is a must try!
Awesome! Go a few times a week My favourite is the rogan josh (hot) and garlic naan. Great service and very clean establishment. The uncle is nice and the aunty comes out to say hi with a big smile. Should try it out! More...
The food is always great, and the people are all very nice. Have had delivery/ pickup many times, and will many more.
Super delicious food... excellent service...gonna come back for sure!!! Tried Gobhi Manchurian and cholle Bhature... It was really good... Haven't had Manchurian like this before More...

Amazing food and amazing service! Best Indian cuisine in Burnaby!
Had the vegetarian Thali, very good and the mango ice cream for dessert was delicious!
The Shai paneer is the best I've ever had
Not the best interior ambiance or price point for the location, but the food tastes good and service is quite fast. Lots of vegetarian options to choose from as well.
A+++++++++ Best food in town. Won't go anywhere. Awesome staff and well organized other restaurant can learn from them.
cherry boom boom

Very good food I really like Lamb Tikka was sooooooooo yummy service was awesome and happy to come back again! And will be back for sure!
Very good meals seasoned with balanced flavours. It is not greasy or heavy.
Outstanding cuisine. I am Sri lankan and have travelled to India. The food here is definitely on par with some of the most excellent restaurants I have dined at. I strongly recommend this restaurant for an authentic Indian culinary experience. More...
This place is amazing with their food and customer service! I visited Vancouver from the states recently and they treated me like family, definitely my only go to food spot whenever I visit. I can taste the love in every bite and the butter sauce makes the whole meal! YUM. You really get a feel of India, can't wait to go back. More...
Great Punjabi Food that tastes like its home made :)
Great food. Sleeper location. Much nicer inside than outside. Will return
Nice onion kulcha with curd.
Good atmosphere and quiet. Good curry, though a little spicy.
Delicious authentic Indian food at reasonable prices. But most importantly they're food is amazingly yummy. Like really yummy. Hope these guys are around for a loooong time. More...
Delicious food. Portions are large. Priced well.
Had the butter chicken combo with rice. I liked everything about it except the chicken was a bit dry. Not the best I've had but it was good. I'll likely get it again.
Great customer service and lovely enviorment. Food is awesome, will definitely be coming back! I recommend anyone that is craving authentic Indian cuisine, Desi Turka is the place to go!! Thank you guys. See you soon.
Desi Turka is my go to place whenever I'm craving for Indian food! If you can't handle spicy food like myself, the chef accomodates to your tastes! I have dinned in and had takeout several times, food has always been on point! The food portions are so filling and flavourful you'll have a hard time deciding what to order! Honestly the best place for comfort food, feels like you're eating at home. Been eating here for years and found out the restaurant is also family owned! They are so nice, I always feel so welcomed they truly care about their food and service! EAT HERE!!! More...
What a Gem this place is! We had their Lamb Biriyani which was just delicious. The service was also wonderful.
One of the best Indian restaurant in the burnaby as well as in surrey , must try their onion Kulcha and aaloo pronthe. The way the decorate their food is really awesome . Loved it

This gem is located smack dab in the middle of a very competitive East Indian restaurant row. Because it is the BEST in the area, a competitor is bringing their rating down. Justice must be "served"! You can go to the competitors for the simple dishes but if you are ready to take your taste buds to the next level, order desi lamb and seafood dishes. Keep picky vegetarian and vegan friends happy too. Witty owner and waitresses. Order take out early! Delivery times decent for such a busy place. Parking hard to find in this area. Desi has 7 spots in the back. Prices okay. Clean newly remodeled restaurant. Not big. Bollywood videos! If you don't have an East Indian grandma that can cook for you, this is the next best thing.

Delicious food, great prices, great service, a great place to get your fill of Indian cuisine. They are all friendly and accommodating...will definitely go back:)
Thought of trying a new Indian restaurant nearby. At first glance from the outside it does not like much but don't be deceived: it is quite cosy inside. Not a big place so recommend booking as it is a busy place. The food is indeed very very tasty so will definitely come back again. You can order online for pick up of delivery too. The staff was very friendly and we were not rushed at all which was lovely. More...
Just the best food with the nicest people that run it. Huge fan here.
They catered a business lunch for us and did an amazing job. The food was delicious, there was plenty of it, and they were prompt and on time.
Love this place. Best butter chicken in Burnaby. The samosas are authentic and taste like they are truly homemade. The price is also decentHonestly don't understand bad reviews here, but I have never received bad service. Except I wish they stop playing 90's Bollywood on the TV. More...
Amazing food! Definitely a must try. Just like how mamma made it!!!
Great food...best butter paneer masala and cauliflower manchurian...so yummmmy...
Desi Food Lover
I usually come to Desi Turka with my husband Dave weekly, however, after reading some reviews I was ticked off with some individuals below. We came in around 1pm today for lunch (even with the snow), we had the karhai chicken, lamb curry, rice, and garlic naan, we kept everything medium since I can't take that much spice. Everything tasted good as always and the service from Gurdip was great. He talked with us until our meal was ready! We will be coming on the weekend with our 2 sons and parents to get another meal in! ~ Rupi Kalsi More...

Great meal... Best malai koftas in town. I prefer dining in as well... Food was perfect
Good Quality authentic Indian food. Been there a few times, and am never disappointed. Quantities are sufficient for normal people. Lunch specials are perfect quantity, and quality is as always excellent, you get the same quality food for lunch special as you would if you order it for dinner. Will recommend for authenticity and quality of food! More...
Happened across Desi Turka about 4 months ago and we've been back 4 times. Food is Excellent. We appreciate that each time the food has slightly different spices that tells you it is hand crafted.
Going on 2 years now and have yet to find a better local spot for Indian. Eating a samosa right now, top notch. Butter chicken is always perfect, bread is great, it's all good.Great delivery, always on time. Never forget anything. More...
Very very good food enjoyed the friendly evironment and speedy service. Felt like i was eating home-made food.

There food is undoubtedly among the best Indian restaurants. I usually take delivery the server who receives is very friendly and helpful.. There driver is also very gentle and there korma is the best... More...
To be fair - I don't usually give 5 stars: so this was pretty good. I guess the only thing that might take away is the fact that there's little parking nearby. The food was good. They have amazing bhaturas. The restaurant and clean, tidy, and well appointed and furnished without being overly cluttered. It is not, however a big space. The lamb curry and chicken vindaloo that we had were both very flavourful and the lamb was very tender and not overcooked. Since we were the only ones there at 11am, the service was very attentive! but honestly, the Manager there is very friendly and tremendously helpful. Will be back to try more. More...
Ive ordered a few times times from this restaurant and the service and food has always been great. It's now my go to Indian place :) I always recommend my friends and family to come here!
I would give a lot more than 5 stars but Google would not let me
OMG! im so happy to have found this local indian restaurant! I didn't know when they closed and they accommodated my friend and I when the kitchen was closed. We had the butter chicken, naans, and rice! To top it off the homemade yogurt!!!! :) so good..... More...
I went here on a recommendation from a friend. I've tried indian restaurants before but nothing was comparable to Desi Turka. Their chicken tika masala was delicious! Loved the bold flavours expressed in the cuisine. If you are vegetarian, options such as chana masala taste great and have a delightful aroma. This restaurant has affordable pricing and the quality is amazing. There are take out and delivery options as well if you want to be lazy and stay at home. The staff is wonderful and you definitely feel like you are eating a home cooked meal. More...
This is my default fave Indian restaurant for dining in and take out. (They have THE best Bollywood music videos running on the tv, I've seen some simply wonderful stuff.) Their delivery, given that they do not make "fast food" is quick and the food comes piping hot. Serving sizes are average to better than average. I've always found servers and drivers to be cheerful and friendly. Personal faves are the chicken tikka and onion kulcha but everything they've fed me has been yummy. Once in a very long while there will be an item with a tad too much salt, but much less lately, and that's the only thing that's preventing me from giving 5 stars. They are a very welcome addition to dining alternatives in East Burnaby. More...
Great restaurant... the butter chicken was fantastic. Will go again....
Good place and quite friendly service. The tandoori chicken and other food tasted pretty good. Service was pretty quick in my opinion. Overall reasonable prices. Will go again. Definitely worth the money. More...
Best place so far!!!!!!
Reeeeally good! Much better flavors than Bombay Bistro up the road, and many many other Indian places I've tried. They're very friendly, too!

incredible food. service was incredible. def going back!
This is my favourite place to order from in Burnaby. We've had their food delivered 5-10 times, & the strength of my sweet lassi craving terrifies me. We also went to the restaurant for a dine-in special & it's so nice there! The service was awesome. More...
Ordered for delivery on a Friday night. Food arrived within about 70 minutes. I consider this to be very decent. Ordered the usual - vegetable pakora, vegetable samosa, chana masala and garlic naan. The samosa was fantastic. Very flavourful and crisp. Chana masala was great as well. Garlic naan was the usual - not amazing, certainly not bad. The vegetable pakora was not very good but I don't fault the restaurant for this. It's a deep fried item and I didn't consider this when making the order. I wouldn't order this item again for delivery but would certainly order it if dining in. Was a lot spicier than I expected which was a great surprise as I find most Indian (and Thai and Mexican...) restaurants in Metro Vancouver to go light with spice. Overall, prices quite decent, food very good. I'd certainly recommend this. More...
Ordered delivery. Minimal delivery fee and food was delivered on time. First time ordering from here, so thought to play safe and order butter chicken and veg jalfrezie(medium) with garlic nan. It was delicious! This shall definitely be my Indian go-to place in New West! More...
FRIENDLY STAFF! I love indian cuisine so me and my partner tried this place a few weeks ago. The place is small but is incredibly clean and and comfortable. The food is delicious and generous portions! The staff is very friendly and helpful with any questions you have about the menu. Seriously. The food is amazing. More...
We wanted to try a new place tonight and headed to the website of our trusty Entertainment Book to find a likely spot. Desi Turka popped up as a local place that has good ratings across several review sites,so we decided to give it a try. What a good move that proved to be!! The restaurant is small, but clean and fresh looking. The menu has a good mix of meat and vegetarian options, with various naan and side dishes. The food was fast and delicious, not too oily or greasy, portion sizes are very generous, and the peshwari naan is to die for! I could go back and visit again just for that alone. Really happy to have found this little gem - will definitely be back especially as I forgot to use our voucher!! More...
First time at this indian restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. The taste was good and the prices were extremely reasonable. We ordered 4 dishes with 4 naan breads and it came out to about $57. Not to bad considering other places would be around $70. The portions were not big however each packed a good punch with flavor and decent amount of meat. The chick's peas dish was kind of bland and wouldn't ordered this dish again but 3 out of 4 were great. I would recommend this place to others and as you can see from the pics the food looked good. Oh forgot to mention the garlic naan bread and regular naan bread we ordered was fantastic. More...
My sister, nephew and I tried out this restaurant after a friend recommended it.When I got there and saw how tiny it was, and that it was empty inside I wasn't sure what to expect. The family that run it are so friendly! They offered suggestions on what to order and were very pleasant.The food was really, really good. We ordered quite a few dishes, and we were happy with all of our choices.We were the only people in the restaurant, but they were busy throughout our meal with take out orders.I'm looking forward to going back and trying new menu items! : ) More...
Always get this delivered, all the things that I have tried so far are delicious, make sure you are asking for mild because some dishes are very spicy.
It's really great. I started on mild because I was scared.. I've now moved up to medium. It bites but it's so good. Some of the best Indian food I've ever had. Lots of options. Prompt delivery. Reasonable price and a small delivery fee. All around a really great place to order from. More...
Can't say much for their decor, as I've only used Orderit.ca to order delivery. Butter chicken is great, and if you want spicy, you really have to tell them, "Indian hot", then they'll know ;) Garlic naan also pretty yummy, not oily at the bottom. Delivery's pretty prompt, though you have to tell them if you pay by credit card. More...
Delicious food...my favorite restaurant now! thank you!. Simply irresistible food! Great service. Great prices. Great restaurant in lower mainland! Whole family loved it!
Ordered delivery from here some time ago. I had the Rogan Josh, which was very flavorful and delicious. The rice pilaf was good too, as were the popadoms. Over all it was a very nice meal and the delivery did not take too long. Would order again. More...
Gobhi Manchurian. Cauliflower pieces covered in batter, deep-fried and then tossed in a spicy, tangy sauce.
Its an awesome place its the only indian restaurant near by new west which offers awesome food
The food is excellent and the service is top notch. A great little restaurant that completely satisfies our Indian cravings. A must for those whom desire some Indian food. More...
Fantastic food in an intimate restaurant. Will definitely be back. The chicken karhai was outstanding.
We used to order from the last restaurant they owned. We were quite sad when they sold it. Luckily, we recently moved and discovered we were in the delivery area of this restaurant. Hooray! Butter chicken for all! All the dishes are good. Highly recommended. More...
Great food! The battered fish is delish!!! I would totally come back and try new dishes for sure
Fantastic tandoori style Indian. Our fav in Vancouver. Great veggie dishes. Excellent dahl.
Another go-to Indian place, a fairly new place, opened about 3 months ago. Former owner of the Agro one @ Canada Way.Obviously new, though it doesn't have your typical Indian decor, it's more casual and still authentic. Butter chicken is my measuring barometer, creamy and ask for the hottest possible ;) More...
AMAZING!!!. First and foremost I am a very picky eater when it comes to my indian food! I was recommended to this restuarant by my friend who lives locally. I was very surprised by how amazing the food was. My boyfriend and I ate the chilli paneer, butter chicken, pulao rice, a few garlic naans, and the SUPER TASTY mango lassi's. The price was super cheap coming to about $35 with tip. The server was friendly and it is a family owned restaurant which made the atmosphere feel welcoming. The owner came to great us after the meal and asked us how everything was :) the owner and his wife are the cooking duo and we definitely assured them that this is going to be our regular indian spot and that he should keep this table for us every week!! RECOMMENDED TO ANYONE WHO LOVES THEIR INDIAN FOOD! More...
I stopped in for lunch yesterday on the recommendation of a friend. Wow! Some of the best Indian food I have had for a long time. I had the Lamb Tikka Masala and it was heaven. So rich and flavourful like beef short ribs that had been slow cooked for 24 hours :) More...
Tasty new spot along East Burnaby's short Indo-Canadian strip. Have just tried the take-out here so far. Everyone was quite pleased with all the dishes ordered. The layers of spices tasted pefectly and it was cooked well. The Palak/Spinach Naan was delicious! Service was quite friendly. Will be back. More...
We were recommended to Desi Turka by a Punjabi friend of ours who is a major foodie and an authority on Indian cuisine. Wow! I love this place! Not only are they super friendly, their food rocks and it's not at all expensive. The chicken pakoras are awesome and we also had Butter Chicken and Lamb Vindaloo - the Naan is fresh too. Everything was super tasty. I've had Indian food all over the place and this is among the very best I've had. I'll definitely be back! More...
Fantastic food and friendly service. We went and tried out the newest indian restaurant in its first week of opening and were very impressed. the food was delicious and we got great family style service. Definitely recommend everyone checks it out. Desi Turks is my new favorite indian restaurant! More...
Cannot wait to have some fabulous food
