The food was amazing and we sat in the garden, which had a lovely ambiance to it. We had no complaints about the restaurant or staff.

Really generous portions of very tasty vegan, gluten-free food in the pretty garden. Will definitely be back on many occasions.

Food was absolutely brilliant, genuinely fantastic but the restaurant really lacks character from the moment you walk in. Such a shame. The welcome to the restaurant was limp, not even a how are you! The table we were given was right by the main walkway and kitchen hatch, we were just put there without a thoughT - is this okay would have been nice. - I’d have said no can we sit somewhere else as this is awful for a romantic meal out. The service lacked any kind of character, no interaction - plates were taken and food presented but it just come across so wooden. It was a massive shame as we were celebrating a massive occasion and it really let it down.

We just love Cafe Diwali - the food is amazing. My husband worked and travelled through Asia and ~East Africa for 25 years, and he says your curries are the best ever! All the staff are charming and helpful. Our only criticism is that the loos and stairs could do with a bit of tlc. Keep up the gtood work, and see you soon!

Had a fantastic meal and our 8 year old loved the kids menu. Maybe could put on a few extra different dishes but with what is going on at the moment it is probably difficult. Looking forward to trying the lunch menu.

Unfortunately it was mixed feedback from our party visiting for the first time the other evening. Everyone really enjoyed their starters but mains not so much. I had a really nice vegetarian curry but those having meat said the quality was very poor. 1 member of the party felt unable to eat their meal and had to have a bit of everyone else’s! Overall I think we agreed not worth the money and we would not go again. Shame as had been really looking forward to visiting and had high hopes. We also felt the garden looked a bit tatty and as though it had not been maintained which was so sad as it had been a beautiful space before.

Our table was right next to the serving hatch so very busy place to sit and not very relaxing. I appreciate you are busy and need to make allowances for distancing but will specifically ask not to site there in future.
