“The closest to real Indian food you'll get in Ithaca.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

The food is simply amazing.
The service is good and fast.
The price of the dishes can be somewhat hefty, but it's worth it. Some dishes are rather reasonable.
Even when the restaurant is full, you get served promptly.
It's acceptably clean.
Tip: Always ask the waiter/ess's opinion on dishes you're not familiar with. They're opinion really helps.
All in all it was great eating there.

“Not bad Indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

Diamonds offers your typical Indian lunch buffet with many vegetarian options, pakora, naan and the usual pale salad. For dinner you can also choose from the menu, which gives a few more options. The interior is somewhat run-down and dumpy, but with a window seat you can just look the other way. The food is OK, nothing exceptional, particularly after it has been sitting at the steam table for awhile, but good Indian food is rare in these parts, so this will have to suffice.

“Always pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

While I wouldn't call the food remarkable, it is always good and an excellent value. The service is delightful, the atmosphere very welcoming, and I always have a very pleasant time there. I say five stars because I have never walked out of there in a bad mood. Magic!

“Indian Comfort Food & Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

We usually go for the lunch buffet but occasionally order off the menu. Always tasty and fresh. We're not Indian but we're there often.
