This is one of my favourite Indian restaurants in Guelph. The food is great...pakoras are AMAZING. Just don't go if you aren't prepared to wait a long time. Their service each time we go is very slow but really worth the wait and we don't mind at all. Lovely ambiance and honest staff. I left my $400 Coach sunglasses on... More

Love this place. Every time I'm in Guelph this is my lunch choice. Tandoori chicken , butter chicken, goat, spicy chicken, everything is super tasty.

I have been a Diwa customer for many years and I always consider writing about the restaurant, but the review always turns out to be complicated. I would like to clarify that I have had both lunch and dinner at the restaurant, as well as take-out. Let’s start with the kitchen: the food is great and that is what makes... More

Went here to have dinner and be able to converse. Too many places blow out your eardrums with music and loud talk. Not here. Great place to eat and enjoy the company. Food was fresh and very tasty. Prepared well and the service was top notch. One note: they like to heat up the dishes so remember to ask them... More

We have gone for dinner and take out for a few years but this is the first time we went for their weekday lunch buffet. It was awesome, lots of different things that we wouldn't normally eat, we were able to try with unlimited naan. Great place would definitely go again!

Absolutely fantastic. If I could give it a six out of five I would. Our meal was fun, fresh, delicious. We tried a new dish today, Kadhi goat. Just as good as every other dish on the menu. Highly highly recommend.

When I worked in Guelph, it was a bimonthly treat to take a group to Diva. Since there is a buffet at noon, it makes it very easy to get a group seated and served particularly if you arrive just before noon or closer to 1:00. Especially when you consider the difficultly in getting parking near a downtown restaurant like... More

My wife and I go here periodically for date night. The food is excellent and there is lots of options. I'd highly recommend going here if you enjoy Indian food.
