I love the food at Diva and when I want to splurge, I head there. Their food is slightly overpriced but very tasty. I enjoy the Paneer Masala and the Saag Paneer for some vegetarian options. Their samosas are also to die for (both the meat and veggie). It is right in the heart of Davis Square and they open... More

We stopped in for a Saturday Brunch one day to try out their buffet. It was quite tasty, with many options. Soup, samosas, palak paneer, tandoori chicken, raita, naan, a vegetarian option I can't remember, rice, and two desserts, including gulab jamun (my favorite). There were more options than I can remember, and the kitchen is full screen in front... More

All of the food we ordered at dinner recently was far above average - totally delicious! Saag paneer was a really good version of this dish - although we discovered that the vegan version - ask for it to be made without cream or milk - is possibly more delectable than the standard. Breads are out of this world. I... More

We ordered the "Vegetarian Platter" for appetizer and it was the standard fried affair - nothing spectacular. When it came to the entrees - we had 2 Tandoori dishes. The "mixed grill" suffered from overcooking and many of the pieces were dry and tough. The other dish - Salmon - was very fatty and nothing to write about.

I've eaten at Diva twice now, once having north Indian and once having south Indian cuisine. Both were average to slightly above, I'd give it about 3.5 stars were that an option. The dosa on the masala dosa was very crisp but also a little greasy, and the chutneys were kind of dry and bland. My husband's uttapam looked like... More

I always enjoy coming to Diva's for Indian food. Their Chicken Tiki Masala is good and I love the atmosphere.

Went with a Groupon and food was good, plenty of it, but service could have been better. We actually couldn't eat everything Groupon allowed. Atmosphere was unremarkable, but restaurant location, Davis Square, has many pre and post dining options. Diva is a very nice family oriented location with several larger tables.
