“Delicious Indian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

We were craving some indian food after ten straight days of tapas. We have been to many indian restaurants around the world and the food at Diwali is definitely one of the better ones in Europe. The food was fresh, just the right amount of spice and the service was great too, the food definitely hit the spot! We highly recommend this place and we will for sure pay it a visit again if we are back in Madrid.

“Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

While the food was good and served promptly however hospitality was not the indian type. We needed some information to reach quickly to the santiago stadium however not much was shared.

“Great Vaue for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

Diwali restaurant serves very authentic Indian food. The quantum of helpings is wholesome and if one likes Indian food this is the place to visit in Madrid. The person attention and involvement of the owner is praiseworthy. In short, it is great value for money.

“Outstanding Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Went here with the SOTC group today and I was just so happy to be there. The ambience of the restaurant, the food serving manners of the staff and the quality of the food was just outstanding. I have been to atleast 15 indian restaurants in europe in the last 15 days but this was definitely my favorite. Definitely try their butter naans (so soft and fresh) and aloo matar. Their chicken curry was quite delicious as well.
