Delicious Indian food in Guelph

We love Diwa restaurant! We moved from Toronto over a year ago and Diwa was one of the first places we tried for take-out. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. It's really delicious Indian food. Not too heavy or greasy, and has really great subtle flavours and spices. We have... read more

I brought my family from Burlington to Diwa this past Friday and had a great experience as always. Our server was very bubbly, friendly and attentive. She helped talk my wife and kids through the menu suggesting her favourites to us. We swapped out one of our usual dishes for the boona lamb as she suggested and it was absolutely... More

Came on Valentine's Day for a little treat. Loved the restaurant decor, bottle service, friendly server and best part was the food was very delicious. Had chef's platter, Goan fish and some garlic naan. I must say the tandoori dishes and the Indian wine was the best and the prices were decent as well.

I've eaten at Diwa about 5 times now. It's quickly become my favourite Indian restaurant. The place looks very plain from the outside, but inside you'll find a modern, classy, warm decor. There are not a lot of tables and the place is always full, so we always make reservations. It's just a wonderful place for a casual but upscale... More

I went with friends for lunch.we liked the food and it is not killing spicy. But the waitress kept coming back and forth asking to remove plates that we are already eating in. It was like she wanted us to leave. Will give it another try though. I am surprised about the comments about the owner specially that the place... More

I reached Guelph and after an almost 2-hour drive from Toronto airport (traffic was really bad!), and was told about this restaurant by my hotel front desk. After I was shown a table, no one came for a long time. Finally, when the waiter came, he did not bring any water, but just came to take my order. He brought... More

Another note to self today. In impromptu luncheon with niece recently transplanted from NY. She has already been three times to Diwa. We decided to meet for lunch on Saturday. The restaurant is in a strip mall and nothing to write home about from the outside. Inside is calm and they have tried very well to utilize the space.Our server... More

Diwa is my favourite Indian restaurant in the Guelph area and I love having lunch there as there are many items to choose from on the buffet. I no longer live in Guelph area but look forward to having lunch at Diwa anytime I'm back. The staff have always been prompt and courteous as well.

This place has a great lunch buffet on weekdays that is a frequent stop for those who work close by. The food is very very good, but the seating is limited. I recommend coming early or later for lunch as you may have to wait if you come at noon.
