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.

Context: I arrived for lunch around 11:55 on a Friday Service: I arrived to a very busy and bustling restaurant. It was a tad overwhelming when I walked in the door as the space seemed cramped and many people were waiting. There is no designated waiting area, so customers waiting to be seated tend to crowd around tables and the... More

This is a non-vegetarian Indian restaurant on the north west side of Guelph. Vegetarians can get a fair number of dishes at lunch buffet. Food has been pretty consistent and good here. Had their lunch buffet and dinner with menu. On the pricy side for us, not our everyday kind of restaurant. But nice atmosphere for dining. Treated guests here.... More

The food was good and the portions large especially the rice. The atmosphere and the service was friendly a generally pleasing experience. The only possible criticism is in my opinion the menu is quite limited for a Indian restaurant.

This is seriously good food, the kind you dream about. Every time my husband and I try to decide where to go in Guelph for dinner we end up here. The shrimp Vindaloo if fiery goodness.

We love the food here. It is the first Indian restaurant we tried and it is still the best for overall quality. There are lots of vegetarian choices to choose from. We used to drive from Acton for takeout in winter to get our fix.

Don't let the odd location fool you. Once you step in to this charming restaurant, be prepared to enjoy the most delicious Indian cuisine in Guelph. I usually have butter chicken with rice, naan and if I'm feeling very hungry I'll have pakora or samosa to start. We have had take out....it's not quite as nice and the portions don't... More
