I remember visiting Diana a few years ago which was the best restaurant in the city. Diana has grown since then and turned into a much bigger hotel. However, the service isnt that great as it used to be. Even the food/desert quality has deteriorated. Nevertheless, the place is good to visit with family.

Diana has a history! One of the oldest in the city and it was located in the middle of the city. They are the ones who introduced the ice creams - Gadbad! Well known for Cutlet, Chana Batura, Ice Creams. The service is good, taste-wise good but be ready to cough up some high amount bill for couple of items.... More

Went here for breakfast on 25th Dec Morning with my family. The breakfast snacks - Sada dosa's, Masala dosa's, Milk shakes & Gadbad was nice albeit still not up-to their earlier standards. The aroma & taste that i remember of the good old Diana is still missing. One more con is that the staff is not really the smiling friendly... More

I had lunch at this restaurant last week (Dec 30 2016) , the quality of food has come down, and even the quantity, it used to be very good a few years back. But now even the customer service is not good. I heard there are good options near by, so try that out first before you come here.

Usually known for its ice-creams and snack, this place lived up to our expectations. We dropped in here for our dinner. Masala Dosa on most tables was very inviting and ordered the same and it surely was very tasty. After the Dosas, we tried their very well known Gud-bud and Honeymoon special ice-creams. Both of which were highly delicious! To... More

This place used to be one of the best restaurants in Udupi but over the years, the quality has gone down. The food tastes average (nothing like before). The one thing we all would look forward is the Gud bud ice cream. When I had it recently, I was really disappointed. The ice cream was below average. Hope they improve... More

Tried the masala dos, veg cutlet and gubud. All of them are good but the masala dosa has to stand out and could easily be amongst best one could try. The gudbud could have been a lot better if they had swapped the strawberry flavored ice cream with another flavor (strawberry ice cream in India doesn't taste like they are... More

After visiting Diana I can truly say that the place is a true heaven for foodies like me. The signature gadbad ice cream and cutlets are as tasty as ever. The other items like dosa were also quite delicious. On the side- Ask the waiter for the specials and he will recommend a list of tasty treats.

Udipi is famous for vegetarian food and Diana we were told was one of the best. We were taken there to sample their masala Dosa and vegetarian cutlets. Both were very tasty and ridiculously cheap. the Dosa was 45 rupees
