    The slow service needs to be addressed if Diya is going to be anything special. The food was tasty and well prepared.

    The atmosphere is quite and it is not too bright...cozy and the owner would come around to greet the guests and make sure everything is OK. I loved the samosa....not greasy and so fresh. The bread is so fresh and yummy. The biryani is OK but the rice felt as if it was not cooked that much....it was a too spicy for me even when I ordered a mild spice. Overall I would come back to try different dishes.

    We love Indian food and decided to give this new restaurant a shot. Overall we were very pleased. Only a few little errors in service (clearly still training new staff) but very friendly and welcoming. Nice atmosphere that gives it a slightly more upscale feeling than many of its competitors in the area but still kid friendly. The complimentary papadum with three chutneys (loved the mango!) was a great way to start the meal. A great place that I expect to only get better as it settles in its routine.

    We were very disappointed in the quality of food. Our lunchtime reservation was at 1:00 and by that time, the buffet was quite picked-over. My companion was distressed to see a dish that looked (and tasted -- she had to try it) just like a Chinese noodle dish. Our waiter couldn't have been nicer, however. But he DID wear latex (surgical) gloves, which was off-putting. There are far better places for an Indian Lunch.

    We went around 9:30 on a Friday night. It was basically empty. Food was delicious - everything we ate from appetizers to entrees - would definitely do take out from there. Big party/banquet facility. Nice looking restaurant but it was dead on a Friday night (although we do realize it was late for the suburbs).

    This place was an extreme let down. The costs are extremely high, the food isn't that tasty, and the staff mischarge your credit card, as per their wish, if you choose to pay w/ one, regardless of what you approve. The only thing this place has going for it is the ambiance / contemporary deco.

  • Standard Indian Fare
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 1/22/2011
    The food was good. Not great, not bad. The vegetable somosas had a slight sweetness to them that complimented the flavor nicely. The two vegetarian items aloo gobi and dal makhni were standard fare. An addition of a really good spicy chole would have rounded the meal, but I did not see it on the menu. I've had better, more flavored vegetarian food at Saravana Palace in Fairfax. At the same time Rasika and Indique have raised the bar on the high-end of Indian food. I would hope the rest of the pack will follow.

    Food slightly on the expensive side; their brunch is 19.99 but friends raved about it. So give it a try if looking for good North-Indian food.

    The food was really very good. The decor is plain, and not inviting. Although they could not find our reservation, we were seated within a reasonable period of time. Service was very attentive at the start and fell off as the evening progressed. We had ordered a second glass of wine, but by the time it arrived, we had finished our meals. I think they are still in the "getting the kinks out" phase. If they can bring the decor and service up to the quality of the food, this should be a restaurant with staying power.

    Food was mostly fair with some dishes too salty. The breads were awesome but the accompanying side dishes were not upto par for an Indian Restaurant. Condiments were non-existing.

    It is a new restuarant. We went for the sunday bruch - the selection of the food was great. Even better was the amazing taste. The enviornment is great - it is blend of up-scale restuarant and has lounge style seating as well.

    When we went, there was a big surprise birthday party going on in the main dining space.. having a big party in the main dining area is a bad idea..too much of people movement, loud conversations etc..it destroys the ambience for other diners..food is very good..but place looks like an Indian mela! Coat closet makes one go thru another banquet hall..we had to pass by the partying people..uncomfortable..number system for coats is a good idea..we had to search thru about 50 coats to get to ours..

    The seating is terrible. There is a central area with the tables really close to each other so that strangers seem to be part of your dinner party. The booths are narrow and if there are 4 people each one ends up with on e of their legs on the table's legs. The noise level is very high. There are no beer glasses; beer is served in wine glasses.THe cutlery is old, bent out of shape.The food left a lot to be desired.The left overs were haphazardly packed and mixed up.Would not recommend.
