    For the first 35 minutes no servers came up to our table. Overall, the service was adequate at best, only thanks to the efforts of the girl who ended up serving us. Ambience is neither here or there: there has been some effort to make the place look authentic with certain parts of the decor, while other parts of the decor (tables chairs placemats) fall painfully short of any authenticity. Appetizers were very tasty. We had onion bhajias and hummus to share , and all was delicious . Fory main, I had a veal chop which to my surprise came breaded (this was not described in the menu), which I ate because I was very hungry. Otherwise it was overly salty and slightly over fried. Cant help but to think that Frying of veal chop seems like a waste of meat. Overall it was underwhelming experience and I'm not 100% sure we would go back for dinner again.

    The food was amazing. I enjoyed the different meals, which were done with perfection. I did notice the floor wasn't properly swept, and there was a lot of noise as a baby was screaming the whole time. But overall, I will be back.

    The bhajis were amazing! Felafels were dry and bland, curried potatoes smothered in tomato did not taste of curry, and the babaganoushe had more bread and tomatoes than actual dip to eat them with. The space is lovely, service was excellent and the museum is well worth a visit.

    Two diners in our party follow a vegan diet, and there were several items on the menu to satisfy this criteria. All the food served was delicious. The hummus was the best I have tasted and the carrot cake was scrumptious. The ambience, service, food, were all outstanding. Highly recommend!

    Diwan was ideal as my first dining out experience in Toronto in three years! It was not too crowded but had enough interesting diners to make it feel like a warm place. The service was superb, with our water glasses topped up without needing to ask. I am vegetarian and I had two dishes with very different complex delicious flavours, a hummous dish and one with roasted squash and burrata. I might have become vegetarian sooner if I had dined at Diwan earlier!

    We always enjoy the innovative menu at Diwan and their youthful but professional servers. This occasion was before a Syrian clarinetist's concert in the museum auditorium, so the locale was the obvious choice for a pre-concert dinner. Generous portions meant the faboush salad and dessert were shared and my chicken biryani provided leftovers in a doggy bag (in an eco-compostable carton). The osso bucco was fully consumed! The perfect accompaniment to a lovely night out.

Definitely come again. Recommend to others on the same day...and will continue to do so. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. PS: was hoping to meet Mark :)

    The service was unhurried and delightful... very friendly and helpful. Food was spectacular. I had the vegan fish and chips and was amazed at the presentation and the tastes. My partner had harrissa grilled shrimp. The shrimp were plump and juicy with a nice char. 100% satisfied. Finished with MarMarrakech Mint tea which was invigorating. Congratulations!
