Diwali Indian Restaurant
Diwali main focus is to bring diners as much of the flavours and exotic spices to their menu from different parts of India as possible. Diwali is a relaxed Dublin restaurant bringing together a mixed management of talented and experienced staff from other successful Indian restaurants.
This was a find. We are from the US and we are used to Indian food that is rich in flavor and spices. I was a little worried because the other foods we had tried had not been very flavorful. I was pleasantly surprised to find the food to be of a caliber I have come to expect at home. In addition, the service was great. Our waiter was wonderful and willing to spend time with us, answering our questions about the differences in cuisine in India by region as well as the religious influences that play out in Indian food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a very good Indian meal.
Outstanding food and service as always. Diwali never ever disappoints.
Dear enough for family of 6 but very enjoyable
Such a nice experience! Service was attentive and friendly. They even tailored a dish to my needs making it milder than normal which I appreciated since they were so busy. Would definitely recommend!
As always you get a great welcome from all
Lovely food and friendly staff. Complimentary drink at the end of the meal was a nice touch.
Amazing food and service, when in Dublin, GO! MAke sure to have reservations!
We are traveling from out of town, and had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at Diwali.
Can't say anything about the restaurant apart from one thing - they don't respect OpenTable.ie table bookings. The table wasn't there for us, and we were stood for 20 mins, until eventually we were guided a couple blocks away to an "affiliated" Indian restaurant. In fairness, we did get some compensation in form of a voucher and a few meals on the house, but it doesn't change the fact, that we had not eaten in Diwali as we intended.
Friendly service and good food. Complimentary drink and voucher for return meal a nice touch
10th wedding anniversary celebration
Essen sehr gut recht teuer
Excellent food, service, ambiance and value. Would highly recommend as favourite ethnic restaurant in city centre.
An excellent restaurant with great and friendly service and good food and eeekday specials
After four weeks traveling through Ireland and U.K. we chose to share our last supper with our Dublin friends at Diwali. We had eaten in many fine restaurants and visited many famous pubs along the way. Saying goodbye to our friends over dinner at Diwali’s was a wonderful parting gift! Truly fine experience in ever way. Thanks!
Food was lovely, service was very poor we had to constantly wave at staff for water and menus. The restaurant was not busy...
Superb food with excellent service. Great combination. Highly recommended.
Food was great and plentiful . Family of 6 and we ate all
Lovely food, staff were all very friendly and polite. Excellent value too. Would certainly recommend!
Excellent service and food as always
Great food. Service was okay but, it is a busy place. I would highly recommend for Indian/Napalease cuisine.
The food is always good in Diwali and the service quick and efficient.
Always great food and service
Really enjoyed my visit was there for the early bird but will definitely go back to check out more of the menu
We were in Dublin for just one day and wanted to have Indian food. It was superb!
Back at Diwali again. As ever, the food, service and ambience was excellent and we will no doubt be back very soon. Up there with the best Dublin Indian Restaurants..
Always made to feel very welcome by the person in charge and all staff very friendly.
Weather you are a returning customer or there for the first time, the best Indian food in Dublin if not Ireland.
Nice casual restaurant, food was lovely but nothing to set it apart from any other Indian restaurant. Staff were friendly. No one checked if we wanted anything else like a second drink or dessert but overall a good, easy going place.
Had an amazing meal as always. My veganism was taken very seriously and sides were adapted to meet my dietary requirements. Really good value for money. Staff are really nice. Wasn’t rushed out could sit and enjoy our drinks until we were ready to leave
Family of 5 meal Easter Sunday evening. Food was great . Service was great. Bit over the €30 a head but we ordered loads of food and ate it all. Place was buzzing , looked like lots of regulars too, we will definitely go back to Diwali
Food was very tasty. Service was prompt and efficient. Lovely ambience. I will definitely be back in the future.
Had a great time with my family, great food, great atmosphere, nice & relaxed great choice on the menu staff very helpful will be ma king a return visit with my partner for a date
Heard really good things and was not disappointed. Food was great and the wine very affordable. Would definitely go back.
Great food. Pleasant stuff
Staff lovely gave us a drink on the house
Would go back or recommend it to anyone
They didn't register our reservation through Open Table, so they didn't have any tables available for a group of 5 when we arrived, even though they had couples eating in tables for 6. They kept saying "we'll sort it in 5min" but no one dining was near finishing so we ended up leaving.
Been there before and the food is good, but would not recommend booking through here...
Good service even though very busy - once you were seated it was super
I would NOT recommend this restaurant simply because they could not be bothered fullfilling their obligation to honour my booking. They rang me 48hrs before the appointment to CANCEL pretty simply! No reason other than they couldn't take us at the time they had previously confirmed!!! I was gutted and couldnt get anywhere else given that it was the week before xmas. WORSE SERVICE EVER!
Excellent food. Good service. Great value weekend feast menu. Nice touch to offer complimentary drink at the end. Busy place but was sat evening. Can’t find any faults.
Excellent food, good value, outstanding staff, nice wine, would recommend.
