The Menu Selection at Cafe Diwali is so good that it makes it difficult to choose what to have. Having made those choices the food does not disappoint, and neither does the service. The food is served beautifully, making it a truly good experience to eat there.
Lovely, airy restaurant, friendly service and great food. Two of our party were vegan, and the other two ate vegetarian, and everyone really enjoyed their lunch.
I had heard good things about Cafe Diwali, so couldn't wait to book a table once I knew we were going to be in town. There were three of us in our little group and three of departed at the end of the evening very pleased. I had the Hydrabadi chicken biriyani with a peshawari naan - excellent. Having lived in India for over a decade I was delighted with my choice and the quality (and quantity) of the food, excellent use of spices, gentle heat and very fragrant - well worth a visit and I will be returning.
The set meal at lunch time is really good, really good value and tasty food. Service is very good too, out second visit will go again
Lovely to sit out in the garden on a hot evening. Very attentive, friendly and helpful staff. Food was so many steps removed from even the better local Indian restaurants. The mixed tandoori grill was so tender. The venison kebab was amazing. I opted for a salad rather than a naan, it was so fresh with diced cucumber, carrot and tomato, raddichio and pomegranate. My partner had the chicken curry, again so tender with a savoury coconut flavour an excellent naan and chutneys. The carrot halwa with vanilla ice cream was gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.
Excellent and outstanding as ever. My family’ favourite restaurant. The food is perfectly prepared and authentic and always innovative and interesting. The staff and chefs are very good and Cafe Diwali thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of Salisbury’s best restaurants.
This is a lovely place with the bonus of a pretty peaceful garden with comfortable chairs and sun shades. The interior is pleasantly decorated with Indian themes. The menu is varied and interesting and the flavours delicious. Lunch time prices are very reasonable but they increase for dinner. The staff are welcoming and courteous . In my particular case they were patient and very helpful when one of our party was unwell though no fault of theirs. I will certainly revisit.
We were offered a table in the garden which was the best option as the alternatives (inside & the conservatory) were still very warm. Food was as tasty as ever, staff were as courteous, attentive and helpful as ever which all made for a most enjoyable evening. Already looking forward to our next visit and would recommend to anyone and everyone!
Fabulous food and excellent service for an amazing price. We're never disappointed when we eat at Cafe Diwali. The cafe is a little gem. Thank you!
Fantastic service and the best Indian food I’ve had in the UK. However, the booking said the earliest table was 1.15 and we were walking past at 12.45 only to see it empty. Weird. But everything worked well despite that. Can’t recommend the restaurant highly enough. Have the Thali. Absolutely brilliant.
