Diana started out as one of the more popular ice cream parlors back in the day. My dad used to visit the old place in the late 1980s while pursuing his degree from MIT. Known only for its ice creams, Diana has now grown to a larger chain. The ice creams offered here still have a special place in people's... More

Close to big bazar, ambience is okay, food quality is average, attitude of waiter is like that we have asked food for free of cost, customer satisfaction negative, management need to teach staff how to behave with customers, service is slow

The cutlet is very good they serve it very goodly but sadly the quality of cutlet is decreasing day by day and also hotel should speed up its service. The cleanliness of hotel is good.

Nice old restaurant that has maintained it's quality for several decades. There are so many nice dishes, but the banana bonda is a favorite and the Gadbad ice cream is great (if you can finish it). Nice friendly staff.

A friend suggested having a snack here and ordered the vegetable cutlet for me. It came with a slice of buttered bread, a spicy sauce and something green and raw that I was not sure which vegetable it was.

It is always a nostalgic moment to be in Diana. May be decades ago this was the only place one used to serve snacks with tomato ketchup in porcelain plates. Samosas, ragda patties, etc were hits. They have maintained the same standards even after generations have passed.

Was here couple of days back. Had been to the old location. The taste remained consistent for years together. Misty curries have coconut induced in them. Tried the gudbud and double sundae. Good experience overall.

Thank Srinath34
