Diwali focuses on producing delicious and healthy food using original and fresh ingredients which can be found in the highlands of India and the hilly regions of its neighboring countries. It aims to fulfill the exceptions of Indian curry Lovers, who having been enjoying Indian food for a long

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered a takeaway from Diwali a couple of weeks ago. Everything was hot, and tasted incredible. One of the few Curry Houses that deliver a tender lamb curry. Very generous portion sizes. Will definitely order from here again. 👌🏻

Second visit to Dewali as a curry officienda of Swindon this place is far better than the rating suggests . I would argue its currently the best curry house in swindon. The chilli's chicken starter lovely , chettinad and garlic chill chicken mains spot on.... The service was great I felt valued , they wanted us there and appreciated the business. Whilst everything is expensive these days this relatively speaking was reasonably priced, whilst quality was maintained. I can't judge the takeaway as I've never had one and for me there is usually a difference in sit-down and takeaway. Good work DewaliMore

For a local restaurant a little out of the way I would highly recommend this place Food tasted so fresh even if it was slightly different from what I’ve had before at other restaurants absolutely amazing Took a doggy bag away as clearly had eyes...bigger than our bellies (questionable) Was a little disappointed that I found on the bill I had been charged per container for remainder of food to enjoy the next day not something I have ever experienced before but all in all don’t miss out on this wonderful little gem Will definitely visit againMore

Great service from welcoming staff. Lovely well maintained dining area. Food delicious. Menu extensive, caters for all. Customer parking at rear. Washroom facilities clean. The quality of this establishment would not be out of place in any major High Street. Definitely one of the very...best Indian/Asian restaurants I've visited. Look forward to returning on our next visit. Did I mention the prices? 4 adults with poppadoms, mains, rice, bread, 1 Kingfisher and a bottle of wine for £85. Absolute bargain. Great service, quality and value. Excellent dining experience.More

Do not bother to use as they do not care about their customers... Even speaking to the manager you get so sorry, but don't care. We will NOT use again...

I have used this place for years for eat in and takeaway but today they shocked me by delivering a cold takeaway saying they had too many deliveries I don’t feel that to be a excuse to deliver a meal you have to microwave if...I wanted that I would of gone to a supermarket not wasted my money with them, I won’t be ordering from here again and I will make sure all my friends and family are aware are we used this place for years.More

This restaurant was recommended to us, so we thought we would try it. Although a Tuesday so quieter it did not dissapoint. Highly recommended for a midweek dinner if you want to avoid a busy weekend vist. Could not fault anything, service was fantastic, we...felt like we were treated like extended family. Value for money and selection of food and drinks was vast, I noted special deal on a Wednesday 12.95 for a full meal and sides - excellent value. But the highlight was the food. Stunning. My wife had Chicken Chatinad lovely well cooked excellently cooked creamy curry. I had a tandoori mixed grill served on a sizzling skillet and the meat was not over cooked, succulent and delicious. Dhal Makahni was a briĺiant variation on Tarka Dhal and the Naan was freshly made (you could tell by the taste) and fluffy light. Big portions took loads home for a greatful eldest. Will definately be back. These guys are a credit to their industry and highly recommend you give them a try.More
