Diwan at the Aga Khan Museum
Diwan continues to delight and surprise me with every visit. I try a different entree each time and the kitchen sends the most delicious food, artfully displayed, piping hot and fragrant. Servers are discreet, patient and attentive. this is my go-to restaurant for impressing new friends. Although I love the current menu, I am looking forward to menu changes that will reflect the change in the museum collection. I love the creativity that matches the food to the artifacts on display and welcome the upcoming culinary adventure into West Africa
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would go back again.
Wine list and dessert menu ; disappointing
Beer shown on the menu (Ricard's red) not available.
The ambiance and service at Diwan was outstanding. We very much enjoyed the delicious food!
Diwan has a beautiful view of the Aga Khan Park (an urban oasis) and the Ismaili Centre (an architectural gem with a crystalline dome).
Diwan has an equally beautiful interior decor with 18th century Damascus panels. Food and service is excellent.
We recommend you to all our friends and relatives ! Just wished we had time after lunch for a tour of the museum and shop.
Fantastic service and fantastic food... the presentation is excellent. I love that they change out their menus every so often to match the exhibit or around occasions. My wife and I love coming here for special occasions and entertaining others here as well
Very good service. Food presentation nice. View also👍
Expensive but good. Service could have been better
Lovely lunch, excellent experience
Always a sublime experience in such a beautiful setting and the food is really out of this world. A wonderful combination of flavours which take you out of your regular culinary experience and the presentation is just delightful including the serving dishes and cutlery.
I cannot think of a better place to enjoy both a satisfying and relaxing meal.
We were very impressed with our experience. The waiter was excellent, informative, and attentive. The food was also excellent. Initially, my salmon was so overdone and dry that I could barely cut it. However, it was handled beautifully and the second portion was cooked perfectly. In addition, the coffees we ordered were comped and we received a members discount. My husband noticed that there was dust on the wooden beam beside us and what looked like mouldy dust on the ceiling near the ventilation. That was the only concern about our visit. Washrooms were very clean and spacious. Thank you for a most enjoyable meal.
The food and setting was refined, and excellent for special occasions or just to feel pampered. Definitely a go to location. Thank you for the 3experience.
Loved the tomato watermelon gazpacho and hope it stays on the menu. Wish I could get the recipe 🙏.
Angelo was our waiter. Service was great. Our first visit to Diwan and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it.
Excellent food with a twist! We had a fabulous time experiencing all the unique flavors. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Even the ceiling had a display from the museum. Very cool!
Great! Had a lovely lunch in a beautiful room
This was our first lunch at Diwan and we enjoyed it very much. The décor is stunning and although it would have been lovely on the patio, if the weather cooperated, I was very happy to be inside where we could enjoy the live jazz. We were seated close to the double doors that lead to the kitchen and that was a bit distracting at times, but overall, I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who was visiting the museum and look forward to our next visit.
Went to Diwan on Saturday. Overall is good. Price is good. Just one thing. It’s a family restaurant. So kids would be around even the live Jazz music is on
I will go back again but make sure no birthday party on that day
The room is too loud. They need some noise dampening. Maybe carpets hanging on the walls.
The food is exceptional but the service is amateurish and incompetent. It's a shame to have such fine dishes served by people who don't even know the menu or who ordered what (or even which table).
Great service, food was very good, nice presentation, very relaxing, Kelly is our server, she was great,very friendly and happy to do her work with smiling.
One of the best Indian/Middle Eastern restaurant in Toronto. Consistently excellent.
Although the menu and dish descriptions were enticing, they oversold some of the dishes. My friend selected poutine which she found unpalatable. Given her reaction, I switched plates with her... and was equally disappointed. The other food selections were also not up to pa either. Given that we have very much enjoyed food here before we came away very much let down. The jazz group, while good, overwhelmed us with noise and the players plus staff failed to pick up on feedback whine and wail. As a result, for some time customers' ears were subjected to unpleasant noise.
Great service, good food, little pricey
Innovative and traditional dishes but lack a little in sides and presentation
The food is always excellent and the staff is very friendly. we noticed shortage of staff. We were dining on the patio with some friends visiting from LA ,they loved the food and the ambiance. in terms of the service the staff is very polite and friendly but they weren’t around much. Every time we needed something I would have to get up and go inside to find someone to help us. And that happened 4,5 times.
It was an absolute delight! From the time we arrived to exit, the hostess and servers were attentive and exceeded expectations! The food was delicious and we loved the variety! Definitely a must return for us and highly recommend it!
Ordered 4 different lunch items Nd all were delicious beyond belief!
Food and juices were excellent. Specialty coffee was delicious, but could have been hotter. Service was OK. Ambience, especially the low-level of ambient noise, is outstanding.
Appetizers and cocktails were excellent. Mains were underwhelming. $10 to park Is unreasonable. Diners should be exempt.
As usual the food was exquisite, with matching service. This is a very special place to enjoy lunch with friends or business associates.
Always have a wonderful experience at Diwan. Beautiful space, excellent food and friendly and accommodating staff.
Food was delicious and surroundings beautiful
We were seven guests celebrating an 80th Birthday and after lunch touring the museum to see everything but especially the moon exhibit. I was sorry you were out of the Southbrook wine and another guest was very sorry you were out of the cured salmon. All the food ordered was delicious and very much enjoyed.
Our server Kelly was outstanding, congratulations Kelly!
The food was SO GOOD. The room was gorgeous and the service was helpful and friendly. Will definitely come back again!
Amazingly creative menu well executed. The space is also beautiful
Highly recommend this fabulous restaurant! Great lunch with a very interesting menu.
I had never been to the restaurant before and had numerous questions about the menu so we called ahead and the manager, Isabelle, was very helpful and gracious! When we arrived we were shown to a great table by a big bright window, by a beautiful hostess who looked just like Amal Clooney. Our server, Kelly, was just marvelous. she was friendly and just the right amount of attentive. The food was absolutely delicious, so flavourful! I got the butter chicken which is a favourite of mine and was not disappointed. I hope to dine here again!
