An excellent lunch, despite the constraints of Cv19 social distancing - the food as excellent as ever, even though it's not possible to lay on the wonderful lunch buffet under current rules

I'd not been here for over 25 years and dropped in by chance. Not the longest menu - something I find reassuring, good service, helpful staff. Food tasty and authentic plus one can BYO. Indian radio playing in background. Normally I'd find this irritating but...here it added to the atmosphere. Will wait a lot less than 25 years before I come again! Recommended.More

I’ve been here for lunch a few times as they have a really nice vegetarian buffet. Altough the buffet is quite nice and has a good selection, I have been recently disappointed by the service. Some waiters moving around just ignored us whilst standing to...get a table and to pay. Also, when we decided not to leave a tip and confirmed this verbally, they were quite rude to us. I’d encourage improving the service to provide a better customer experience and make them feel welcomed.More

See a lot of people complaining about this place. Truth is if you want over expensive Indian food then there are plenty of places in the West End to fleece tourists. If you want simple Indian Classics and are more interested in the food than...the ambiance then your in the right place. The Diwana is no frills. The waiters are there to do a job not massage your ego. Bill for two, starters & mains plus service came in at £32. Find better value than than at any non chain restaurant. Only thing I would point out that the place can get a lot of snowflakes in it moaning that their table for eight is getting served slowly. Well your drinking champagne and pretending to slum it. Go away.More

Been going to this restaurant since the 1980’s and could always rely on their bhel poori and bhaji being delicious. Imagine my disappointment when we visited last Saturday only to find the bhel poori was a very poor standard, and the mushroom bhaji was 99%...onion and you had to hunt for the mushroom slivers. The puri’s were tiny - no more than 2” diameter, compared to previous visits when they were 5-6” diameter instead. Won’t be going here again.More

I have had Indian food before, but not specifically vegetarian. So when I saw that this place was a vegetarian restaurant I did not know what to expect. I am a moderate meat eater but when I eat out I usually order a meat or...fish dish. I was really positively surprised with the tastyness of the food. We were a group of 9 and the chef made like a special menu for us. It was very good. The only downside is the comfort of the restaurant. Wooden chairs, not much space and the door slams very hard when closed.More

Excellent vegetarian restaurant that we have come to for decades. Cannot recommend them enough! Though unlicensed the drinks are fresh and homemade. Prepare to queue at busy times!

The best onion dosa I’ve tasted outside of southern India , if you are considering a vegetarian diet this is a very encouraging place to start, my feeling of well being after dinner, increased ten fold!

This restaurant is one of many in a small street tucked in close to Euston Station. Much frequented by students, as well as older people like myself, it is packed by around 7 pm. The restaurant is not licensed but you can bring in your...own beer from the off-licence next door. Good wholesome, vegetarian food is served on wooden tables. The Dosa are the stars of the show, plane or stuffed together with a sambar and coconut chutney. There are lots of other dishes to tempt you. Really atmospheric and good value for money.More
