    Make sure you advise management about non-working parking meters - with posted instructions about how to handle or complain and where. Tried second meter as advised on the first one - several people trying - finally accepted the $10 Amex payment - still no proof to put on car. Need to have clear and visible notification in parking area rather than having guests going through confusion, line-up and inconvenience. Had to get instructions how to deal with the situation from the girl at the restaurant door. I would recommend Diwan to friends ONLY if they enjoy extremely spicy food. We were asked by the waiter if we wanted more or less spicy - ignored. The expected birthday cake turned out to be a small piece of orange cake with a candle - about a forkful or two for each of the two of us. Delicious - but, should have told us that this would be the ordered carrot cake the waiter was recommending and not the expected birthday treat! Charged as the expected carrot cake.

    Perfect! That’s all there is to say….just perfect. Situated in the stunning Aga Khan Museum, Diwan Restuarant is a 5 star restaurant worthy of a Michelin Star! Inventive dishes and attentive service. Every dish I had from their Cauliflower Pakora, Ahi Tuna to their Mango Panna Cotta were layered with flavour. The views over the gardens and water features make you feel like you’re a million miles away while you immense yourself in their culinary delights. Will definitely return.

    The food was generally very good but too salty. Considering that your clientele is a bit older and health conscious, reducing the salt content of all the food would be a positive thing to do. The kale salad had salted tomatoes! I would recommend the restaurant with a caveat about the salt content.

    The food was alright, portion was a little small for the price. The taste can be stronger as it was a little bland on some or a little salty on some. It still taste good but not the WOW factor that I was looking for. However, the service was really good! Servers were attentive and fulfill everything promptly
