This is among the oldest Restaurant in Udupi. Clean and tasty. It was in Diana circle earlier now moved near Big Bazaar, Kinnimulky road. Taste remain the same. Gudbad, Cutlet, Falooda are among the favorite. Overall a nice dining experience. Visit if you are in Udupi.

Wanted to try this restaurant as had heard that this is the place where gadbud ice cream was first served.( No points for guessing what I ordered). However found the ice cream pretty average nothing extraordinary or worth remembering.Ambience is air conditioned which is a plus in udupi

This is one of the oldest Restaurants in Udupi. I have been eating here since childhood. They have moved to a swankier place now. But nothing much has changed. The same old waiters, the same functional service, good food, strange rules. I love the dingri masala and the banana bonda. Not because its the best you find in Udupi but... More

Supposed to be one of the legends that you are not supposed to miss in Udupi. The service is good and fast, but didn't notice anything unique or spectacular in the food..

You can get typical South Canara food here. But costly restaurant. Situated in a nice place. Less crowded.

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.
