Thought give this Turkish restaurant another try as was the company of friends more important and their choice than the venue. This place not improved any, food would be ok if served hot and altogether as service and effort good,there seemed to be a lot of headless chickens( waiters) running around trying to get it right a very busy restaurant....

We were staying in Elstree and thought we would find a restaurant at random. We found Divan's and we're not disappointed! Great food, faultless service and a very reasonable price tag too. We were in awe of the kofte and the lamb cutlets melted in our mouth. The portion sizes were amazing, both of us could not finish our mains.... More

Office lunch outing for 8. The food was very good; well-cooked, fresh and tasty. Service was polite and friendly. But what pushed it up to 5 stars was the fact that they got every single item right (sadly rather unusual in UK restaurants). Falafel 'dry' with no sauces or salads - correct. Drinks without ice - correct. Side salad without... More

Went for a family meal and was really happy with the quality of the food at this restaurant. Everyone in my party was impressed with the service and attention. All the dishes were impressive with large portions and high quality. Will definitely go back next time I am in Borehamwood.

Had stopped in for a kebab a couple of times which has always been brilliant (enormous, tasty and good value for money). This time we went in and, on the fact that we can be boring and only order what we know, asked if they could prepare a meal for us for £20 a head based on their recommendations. It... More

Quite good quality lamb, vegetables and Turkish bread. Service good and attentive. After a starter and a main course, you'll definitely need that little lie down to digest.

Solid service and quality food. Seems to have fallen out of favour with some recently due to opening of Kosk down the road, but remains the better of the 2 in my opinion. Tasty chicken and donner kebabs, mixed meze, hallumi to name but a few tried and tested dishes....

We have tried all the many Turkish restaurants in Borehamwood, and we feel the divan restaurant is the best,the service is excellent and the staff are friendly,the food is cooked to a high standard,the doner meat is quality and the kleftico was cooked perfectly (tender),this is worth a visit.
