Diwali Indian Restaurant
Diwali main focus is to bring diners as much of the flavours and exotic spices to their menu from different parts of India as possible. Diwali is a relaxed Dublin restaurant bringing together a mixed management of talented and experienced staff from other successful Indian restaurants.
Service was immense, very friendly and funny. Food came out quick and was delicious. Decent value for money and they even gave me a free pint for moving table. A great bunch of lads and very attentive. Will go again.
Excellent service and food. Such friendly staff
Probably harsh with my rating because they are doing what they can given the restrictions on indoor dining. Great food and I will definitely return, once we can sit inside.
Really great food and the staff are great, friendly and helpful. The seating is the best they can do given the restaurant is right on George's street. I will be back soon 😊
Such a lovely experience. Food was top notch. Had great early bird deals available
Best onion Bhaji’s on South George’s street
We had a gorgeous meal the week before Christmas. The food was amazing, possibly the best Indian food We’ve ever had. I had a glass of wine with my meal which was a large size. Fantastic price range too. We had a complementary drink at the end of our meal. Which was a nice touch. Cant wait to go back again.
Staff are so good, really make you feel like your custom is important. Very nice touch, complimentary baileys at the end, gift of voucher for next visit, ice cream for kids ... all complimentary ... food very good ... overall I really enjoyed and will certainly return
Excellent service and delicious food =perfect combination! felt really comfortable and safe during this uncertain time and we thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas night out! A complimentary drink at the end of the meal was the cherry on top of a perfect evening!
Lovely food and a great atmosphere. Staff were great and lovely to see everyone.
Great Food, Friendly Staff and Great Value for money. Will definitely return!
We had a lovely time. The food was delicious as always and everyone made us, especially the children, feel welcome.
Good food, friendly service, good hygiene, we will be back to visit this restaurant again.
Great Indian / Nepalese food in location that’s so near Grafton St. Great value, gorgeous wine & great service. Thanks to our waiter Rana. All staff very nice. Spotlessly clean.
Food was absolutely fabulous, would highly recommend the onion bhaji.
The tv was a bit loud, didn’t bother me but it did my Mam.
We had a lovely meal very friendly staff and excellent food and service
Excellent meal, very nice ambience
We had a wonderful dining experience in Diwali. The staff are so helpful and friendly they gave our group complimentary drinks and starters!
It was an ideal dining experience
lovely food, nice ambience, staff were very helpful, and we were offered a gift voucher and a free side dish as an apology for not having one of the dishes we ordered. Will come back soon!
Early bird great value for money
Vibrant and busy restaurant, service excellent. Food so tasty, Indian food turned up a notch.
Food is always good and service is great. Wine list is poor but overall a very good Indian.
We went for food on a very busy night of the year so service was definitely under pressure but in overall great!
We visited on one of the busiest nights, Christmas Eve just as the shops were closing. The place was packed but once we got seated the service and food were still the same standard, fabulous. There is always a good atmosphere but just better.
The food is amazing you will not be disappointed and all the servers are super nice.
Excellent as always!
Food fab as always live the restaurant Seating a bit cramped not very private Staff excellent
Waiter brought us the bill and stood there with card machine the minute our plates had been cleared and while my brother still had half his drink left. We were rushed out to accommodate a larger party who had arrived.
I love Diwali. Superb atmosphere. Staff totally amazing & special mention to Rana who made sure we had a fantastic evening.
Food is totally DELICIOUS. It’s always packed & always great. Thanks to all at Diwali for your superb service & excellent food. 10/10 👍🏻
It was my first time in the restaurant We had a fantastic meal enjoyed the food it was excellent Very pleasant staff I’ll definitely be returning very soon I highly recommend it.
Food was great, service could have been friendlier. It was really busy but you did feel like the next one on the list vs real care taken over what we wanted - we were just the next table to be fed, which was a bit disappointing. But it was humming with loads of people in there. Rogan Josh was one of the best we’ve had in Ireland!
I’m a regular here, old style decor but that doesn’t take from the experience! Great food, very friendly service and fantastic atmosphere-looking forward to my next visit!
A great place for a causal meal with such friendly staff. Will always come back.
We used to love Diwali. This time the food was not edible. The tandoori chicken was so dry— it was difficult to chew. We left less than half a meal.
Shocking experience, made feel like everything is an effort. Staff were very poor, no organisation. Waiting over a half hour and received our main courses before our starters and there was no apology. Finally finished our mains got the dessert menu and waited over 15 minutes for someone to come back to us. Told them we just wanted the bill, which was wrong and the waiter seemed to be annoyed at the fact we told him it was wrong. Would never go back.
Yes I would friendly and helpful staff I would go back it's been a while both my wife and myself were there
Delicious food, great service. Early bird is great value
The food was very tasty but we asked for the Masala to be spicy and this was agreed to. It was not spicy at all. Delicious, but not spicy as requested. It was difficult to get anyone's attention due to the fact that they were so busy but when we did get someone the service was great.
Beautiful meal, great service and the staff were both attentive and very pleasant. I couldn't recommend it more. Looking forward to our next visit already
Had a lovely meal in Diwali last week. Food was very tasty and the service was great👌🏼 Really good value in the early bird menu and will definitely be back 😊
This was a find. We are from the US and we are used to Indian food that is rich in flavor and spices. I was a little worried because the other foods we had tried had not been very flavorful. I was pleasantly surprised to find the food to be of a caliber I have come to expect at home. In addition, the service was great. Our waiter was wonderful and willing to spend time with us, answering our questions about the differences in cuisine in India by region as well as the religious influences that play out in Indian food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a very good Indian meal.
