“Consistent, Quality Indian Food On Long Island”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have eaten at Diwan, and have taken food out, for a number of years. It is time that I give this restaurant a good word, as they deserve it. The restaurant is attractive and clean. It is fairly roomy and can handle a larger group. The wait-staff is friendly and attentive. I believe that I order what a typical American would -- Tandori Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Saag Paneer, Onion or Garlic Naan, etc... Everything tastes great, every time I go there. I eat Indian, all over the country, and Diwan is always right up there with any of the better Indian restaurants.

“Excellent Indian food, great prices”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Excellent Indian food in the hear of Long Island, easily accessible parking.
Food is terrific and prices are very reasonable. The vegetable biryani is excellent, as are the Chicken (or lamb) Vindaloo, Chicken Saagwala, and Chicken Lajawab.
The ambiance is fine, but certainly nothing to write home about.

Among the other local Indian restaurants, Diwan is the best both in terms of flavor, service and value. The other "Zagat rated" local spot is very smelly and the owners are very pushy. Their food quality also does not compare to Diwan's.

“Great tasting food and buffet to gorge on”
Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

I particularly enjoyed their chaat items, but the weekday lunch buffet is awesome value @ 9.95

There is ample selection for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.

The north Indian items are quite delectable, yet to try their Indo-Chinese wing next door.
