Diwali Indian Restaurant
Diwali main focus is to bring diners as much of the flavours and exotic spices to their menu from different parts of India as possible. Diwali is a relaxed Dublin restaurant bringing together a mixed management of talented and experienced staff from other successful Indian restaurants.
A great place for a causal meal with such friendly staff. Will always come back.
We used to love Diwali. This time the food was not edible. The tandoori chicken was so dry— it was difficult to chew. We left less than half a meal.
Shocking experience, made feel like everything is an effort. Staff were very poor, no organisation. Waiting over a half hour and received our main courses before our starters and there was no apology. Finally finished our mains got the dessert menu and waited over 15 minutes for someone to come back to us. Told them we just wanted the bill, which was wrong and the waiter seemed to be annoyed at the fact we told him it was wrong. Would never go back.
Yes I would friendly and helpful staff I would go back it's been a while both my wife and myself were there
Delicious food, great service. Early bird is great value
The food was very tasty but we asked for the Masala to be spicy and this was agreed to. It was not spicy at all. Delicious, but not spicy as requested. It was difficult to get anyone's attention due to the fact that they were so busy but when we did get someone the service was great.
Beautiful meal, great service and the staff were both attentive and very pleasant. I couldn't recommend it more. Looking forward to our next visit already
Had a lovely meal in Diwali last week. Food was very tasty and the service was great👌🏼 Really good value in the early bird menu and will definitely be back 😊
This was a find. We are from the US and we are used to Indian food that is rich in flavor and spices. I was a little worried because the other foods we had tried had not been very flavorful. I was pleasantly surprised to find the food to be of a caliber I have come to expect at home. In addition, the service was great. Our waiter was wonderful and willing to spend time with us, answering our questions about the differences in cuisine in India by region as well as the religious influences that play out in Indian food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a very good Indian meal.
Outstanding food and service as always. Diwali never ever disappoints.
Dear enough for family of 6 but very enjoyable
Such a nice experience! Service was attentive and friendly. They even tailored a dish to my needs making it milder than normal which I appreciated since they were so busy. Would definitely recommend!
As always you get a great welcome from all
Lovely food and friendly staff. Complimentary drink at the end of the meal was a nice touch.
Amazing food and service, when in Dublin, GO! MAke sure to have reservations!
We are traveling from out of town, and had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at Diwali.
Can't say anything about the restaurant apart from one thing - they don't respect OpenTable.ie table bookings. The table wasn't there for us, and we were stood for 20 mins, until eventually we were guided a couple blocks away to an "affiliated" Indian restaurant. In fairness, we did get some compensation in form of a voucher and a few meals on the house, but it doesn't change the fact, that we had not eaten in Diwali as we intended.
Friendly service and good food. Complimentary drink and voucher for return meal a nice touch

Essen sehr gut recht teuer
Excellent food, service, ambiance and value. Would highly recommend as favourite ethnic restaurant in city centre.
An excellent restaurant with great and friendly service and good food and eeekday specials
After four weeks traveling through Ireland and U.K. we chose to share our last supper with our Dublin friends at Diwali. We had eaten in many fine restaurants and visited many famous pubs along the way. Saying goodbye to our friends over dinner at Diwali’s was a wonderful parting gift! Truly fine experience in ever way. Thanks!
Food was lovely, service was very poor we had to constantly wave at staff for water and menus. The restaurant was not busy...
Superb food with excellent service. Great combination. Highly recommended.
Food was great and plentiful . Family of 6 and we ate all
Lovely food, staff were all very friendly and polite. Excellent value too. Would certainly recommend!
Excellent service and food as always
Great food. Service was okay but, it is a busy place. I would highly recommend for Indian/Napalease cuisine.
The food is always good in Diwali and the service quick and efficient.
Always great food and service
Really enjoyed my visit was there for the early bird but will definitely go back to check out more of the menu
We were in Dublin for just one day and wanted to have Indian food. It was superb!
Back at Diwali again. As ever, the food, service and ambience was excellent and we will no doubt be back very soon. Up there with the best Dublin Indian Restaurants..
Always made to feel very welcome by the person in charge and all staff very friendly.
Weather you are a returning customer or there for the first time, the best Indian food in Dublin if not Ireland.
Nice casual restaurant, food was lovely but nothing to set it apart from any other Indian restaurant. Staff were friendly. No one checked if we wanted anything else like a second drink or dessert but overall a good, easy going place.
Had an amazing meal as always. My veganism was taken very seriously and sides were adapted to meet my dietary requirements. Really good value for money. Staff are really nice. Wasn’t rushed out could sit and enjoy our drinks until we were ready to leave
Family of 5 meal Easter Sunday evening. Food was great . Service was great. Bit over the €30 a head but we ordered loads of food and ate it all. Place was buzzing , looked like lots of regulars too, we will definitely go back to Diwali
Food was very tasty. Service was prompt and efficient. Lovely ambience. I will definitely be back in the future.
Had a great time with my family, great food, great atmosphere, nice & relaxed great choice on the menu staff very helpful will be ma king a return visit with my partner for a date
