Authentic South Indian dishes cooked to perfection. Cannot fault it. I have had a takeaway and ate in the restaurant, both good experiences.

Don't let these good reviews fool you. Sorry to say but we had really bad experience. We had gone to this restaurant after reading good reviews, but we ended up with bad taste in mouth, and trust me it was not due to food, but service. We sat down in the restaurant at 8:00 AM and till 8:30 AM no one came to our table, we had to ask for Menu, after repeated calling someone came to take order, our food came at around 9:30 AM. half of the order we placed never reached table. I can keep on writing, but don't want to relive the same horrible experience. one thing is for sure not gonna go to this restaurant again.

Lovely food , wine and service . Even better there was a 25% discount off of the food bill .We were in unaware of this until we asked for the bill .A special offer for Diwali ! Unfortunately the restaurant wasn’t very busy for a Saturday evening at 8pm. So it lacked atmosphere . .Perhaps they should have advertised the discount ! We would definitely go back again .

I have ordered from Diwali on couple of occasions and have found the food to be excellent. It is one of the best Indian restaurants in Swindon. They are always on time even on a busy day.

We tried a variety of the Indian & Nepalese dishes from the menu & cannot fault anything. Indian food with a refreshing twist & amazing flavours. Really lovely staff who are super helpful & friendly. The food is freshly prepared & really well cooked so don't expect it to come out a few minutes after ordering.
Cannot wait for my next visit to try more Nepalese dishes.
