Desi District to Open First Austin Location in Leander

Desi District, the popular Indian cuisine franchise originating from Dallas, is all set to launch its first location in Austin, according to recent filings with the State of Texas. Franchisee Anoop Alladi confirmed to What Now Austin that the new restaurant will be located in Leander and will be the first Desi District location in Austin. The establishment will be a two-story restaurant that aims to combine a modern, urban Indian street food eatery, grocery store, and banquet hall.

The restaurant will offer a unique blend of Indian and global cuisine, including burgers, sandwiches, and Americanized Indian dishes, along with catering services and curbside pickup options. Alladi stated that he decided to franchise the business due to his family ties and his desire to participate in the food industry. The project will be privately funded and has an estimated cost of $300,000, with work starting on June 1, 2023, and completion expected by December 1, 2023.

Desi District is committed to transparency in their offerings, selling only halal meat and ensuring the freshness and quality of their products. Customers can also enjoy quick shipping options, and the restaurant provides excellent customer support services. The location is situated within suites 112 & 114 of 15901 Ronald Reagan Blvd Bldg 1, in close proximity to popular eateries such as Noble Delights Bakery.
