Payment is collected through cash, credit cards (Visa and MasterCard), PayPal and other internet based payment gateways.

There are no trailing fees, membership or other, for any products purchased through the Desi Dhaba Restaurants retailer websites. The total payment amount is clearly displayed upon the final confirmation screens before placing an order. If you are unhappy with the total payment amount then please do not confirm the order.

Once orders have been placed and paid for, they are transmitted through the internet to the requested retailer. Orders are then printed and processed by the Retailer. There is no ability to cancel an order once it has been placed.

The Desi Dhaba Restaurants Delivery Policy

Desi Dhaba Restaurants provides a service for its clients to offer their customers the ability to order products online. Although the service, the website and the services used are hosted by Desi Dhaba Restaurants, the delivery policy of each individual retailer is different.

There are two options for purchasing products through Desi Dhaba Restaurants; Delivery and Pickup. If you choose for your order to be picked up then there will be no delivery and you are responsible for collecting your order. If you choose delivery then the retailer should deliver your product within the estimated delivery waiting time. This delivery waiting time changes throughout the day depending on how busy the retailer is, traffic conditions etc. There is no guarantee made by Desi Dhaba Restaurants that your order will be delivered within this time frame. The delivery waiting time is to be used as a guide and it must be understood that unforeseen circumstances may result in your order taking longer than expected to be delivered.

With certain payment methods, credit cards processed via the Adyen/NAB network, the ownership of products purchased is transferred to Desi Dhaba Restaurants first. In this case the retailer that you ordered through becomes a Desi Dhaba Restaurants agent. As such you can contact that Desi Dhaba Restaurants Agent to discuss concerns with your delivery time or the quality of the goods purchased.

If your order is not delivered within a satisfactory time then you are to call the retailer with whom you placed the order to notify them of your concern. Each retailers phone number can be found within the website.

If your order is picked up or delivered to an unsatisfactory quality then you must bring those concerns to the retailer with whom you purchased the products from and they will deal with the matter according to their specific policies.
