Wait staff are very attentive without being overly so. Just the right balance, allowing guests to enjoy the most Delicous meal and being able to have a good conversation.
The out door patio is beautiful- large evergreens form a lovely privacy “curtain” & drowns out the murmur of any traffic. The patio had beautiful flower boxes - so elegant
Food presentation is a work of art and tasty.
I would highly recommend a meal at the Diwan - for any occasion.

We have visited Diwan many times since it opened and we have never been disappointed with our dining experience.

The menu changes periodically but the food is always delicious and is served expertly by Diwan staff. On this occasion, our party started with the hummus shareable and the tandoori chicken tacos, and our mains were the lamb burger, the chicken boti wrap, and the harissa shrimp kabob. Everything was exquisitely prepared and presented, and of course, thoroughly delicious. Service by Faruk M and the dining room was excellent.

Highly recommended.

We were well placed on the patio with a great view - after all the tents were removed. With all the separation, it was lovely and quiet - conversation was easy.
My harissa shrimp was delicious but the salad not very inspirational. I always forget that red onion is in the salad which I picked out. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her salmon. We both enjoyed our glasses of wine as well.

It was a challenge to get the attention of the wait staff when it was time to leave - I guess because we were in the far corner - still...

Thank you for such a wonderful culinary experience. The ambience was beautiful. Although this was our first visit to Diwan — I can honestly say that it will certainly NOT be our last…

All of the staff were incredibly warm and professional. But a special thank you needs to be extended to Faruk.

Faruk was able to provide us with his knowledgeable assistance with the menu. His pleasant disposition made our meal that much more enjoyable.

We look forward to our next visit to Diwan.

Everything was great. Huge servings and service was prompt. The food was a bit on the salty side and I wish they had said that the vegetarian dish was fully fried. I would have made a different decision. I would go again but order a different dish.
