The new Diana hotel has shifted location. However it does not retain the old fame for its mouth watering south Indian snacks. The staff is still the same comprising of old timers who contribute to the nostalgia, but the food is nowhere reminiscent of the past. Still worth one visit while you are in Udupi for the new found ambience.

I have visited Diana several times over the last 3-4 decades and I have yet to see an establishment that exhibits the quality and consistency they do. This visit , I found that the restaurant has moved to a better larger venue. The menu has probably expanded but the old favourites are still there and taste the same. The ice-creams... More

This is the same half-a-century old ice cream parlour `Diana' which metamorphosed into a restaurant for snacks. The change is that it is in a new location away from the city centre and is now part of a Hotel with lodging. The air conditioned ambiance with its full glass walls and extra-wide sofas is quite modern but the old tiled... More

The rooms are very small and not well maintained. Charge is about Rs 2233/-. The owner has a taken for granted attitude. No hot water to have shower in the morning. The reception staff are not professional, no bell boy to carry the luggage. The funniest part is there is no room service or restaurant service till 8 30 in... More

If you are headed here to try out some of the local food, don't look back. I've heard this place has seen better days, but I found it a charming little place nonetheless. The waiters are senior here - very knowledgeable, experienced and hospitable. They'll be able to guide you around Udupi's attractions to in a way your smartphone won't.... More

All the food isn't good here. But mostly snacks and ice creams are tasty. but they are over priced too. nothing else is worth eating here. I'm really disappointed with the food, price and also service :( so it's a big no for next time.

Diana is a very famous vegetarian restaurant located at a turn before Big Bazaar in Udupi. I might have been 8 years old or younger when I first went to Diana. That time it was located a few hundred meters away from the present location. That day I chose Poori Kurma and that has been the item I always order... More

We stopped by this place for an evening tea after the drive from Mangalore Airport on our way to Manipal. Nice restaurant serving delicious snacks like poori baaji, idli and sweets. The ice-cream was really good. We were served by senior waiters, very polite and prompt. There's also this shop next to the restaurant selling lots of locally produced food... More
