Diwan at the Aga Khan Museum
E xcellent environment
Excellent food very delicious
For dinner, the food portions are too small! After serving the entrees, the waiter never came back to ask if we needed more drinks etc. In fact, it was really difficult to locate him! I had to go to the bar to request the bill!
We enjoyed the jazz trio who entertained us during dinner
The food was outstanding and the service was friendly and prompt. Great experience overall.
Our wait staff associate was great. She helped us navigate dietary requirements so it was helpful.
My Son in Law’s Graduation
Fabulous food, albeit a little pricey food. Will go again for a special occasion
The food took a long time to come out and it was times oddly for a group of five. But it was delicious and it’s a beautiful place!
Service was excellent and food was prepared to a fine point.
My wife found some dishes too spicy for her liking but I and my sister thought the lamb was prepared as it should have.
Room décor could not be better. It is however noisy and dinner conversations were difficult tom carry on.
At times patio door was opened and there was a definite draft in the room.
Bravo! Excellent Service! Excellent Ambiance! Great Food
Loved it, would definitely recommend, Thank You.
Excellent ambiance. Not too noisy, despite the fact it was busy. The food was excellent. Had the lamb shank
I had heard excellent feedbacks from friends who had already dined at Diwan and had always wanted to experience it. The hours are not very convenient for people who works and can't make it at lunch time. Hoping you will extend your hours to dinner time also. Wednesday is not enough. Having said that, yesterday was my first time at the restaurant and I am a fan. It was fantastic. The service was excellent. I will definitely come again, hopefully for dinner this time as I only have half hour lunches.
Thank you for a great experience, best lamb shank I ever had.
This was my second visit to Diana and it did not disappoint - the return visit was every bit as good as the first. The food was excellent, beautifully presented, hot and delicious. It’s always good to try new tastes in food. On both my visits there was a member of our party with an allergy (one gluten, the other garlic) These were dealt with efficiently and accommodations were made by the chef with no problem - greatly appreciated.
The only criticism I have is that the server should have waited until everyone was finished eating before clearing the dishes. Other than that, a very satisfactory and enjoyable meal. Thank you!
We were captured by the HUMMUS, WHIPPED RICOTTA AND FIG CROSTINI,
and HALLOUMI HEIRLOOM TOMATO SALAD. These dishes were delicately flavoured and carefully put together. As vegetarians, we were surprisingly satisfied with these and had no need for any main item. And the parfait!! Mildly sweet and bursting with stimulating flavour and texture. We were very happy with our experience.
Fine and delicious food, a MUST if you like to travel. The setting is also beautiful and the staff extremely friendly! I go back frequently and I strongly recommend the restaurant as well the museum!
Excellent food, fantastic service. Best restaurant in North York.
we were in a hurry and they were able to give us our bill on time. i wish we had more time. The Hummus was the best we had every had. Shared it and both loved it. Salmon was good but for the price it stood alone. nothing to accompany it. So good that i was full on Hummus. Still, i recommend this place and would go again
Delicious! Never a disappointment and the live entertainment was a special treat.
Delightful experience that complemented the visit to the Gallery. I’ve taken guest here four times and they all raved about the experience. Job well done!
We celebrated a milestone birthday and enjoyed everything, as a matter of fact we plan to be back in July!
I had planned my husband's 40th birthday celebration with 15 guests in tow. I was a bit nervous as we had never been to Diwan before. At the end of the meal (prix fixe menu), we (including guests) were left wondering why we hadn't been here before! The food was delicious and presented artistically. The servers were courteous, helpful and accommodating! Our table overlooked the fountain and the Ismaili Centre, it was a great back drop!
We are definitely going back to taste the other menu options and highly recommend it!
A very enjoyable experience, beginning with the attention to detail and follow-up with the reservation system. No problems accommodating changes and the instantaneous feedback . The service was welcoming and the food absolutely delicious.
Food was excellent and service attentive. We had the babaghanoush with heirloom tomatoes, the Tikki chicken on a sizzling hot plate and the octopus and squid salad, finishing with the carrot cake. The tikki chicken was outstanding, piping hot and silky smooth, perfectly done. Octopus was good although the squid was a bit overcooked, but still good. The only disappointing thing about the food was the side order of naan. I had expected artisanal naan for the price of $7. But we got one piece of what tasted like wonderbread naan. That was disappointing in an otherwise excellent restaurant.
Extremely subtil layers of flavours! A real treat with the new moon inspired menu! Highly recommend the charred orange and mozzarella salad! Looking forward to our next visit!
Amazing food, very nice place, I recommend for friends or family gatherings
What an incredible experience! From the very unique decor; diverse menu offerings; interesting desserts and ambience, it was a wonderful new discovery. The service staff were well versed in the menu item ingredients and were always there to offer recommendations and attentive service. Looking forward to returning very soon.
Very good food, beautiful restaurant, the serving size are small but acceptable.
Wonderful! A little pricey for salads. But really lovely. We will go again
An excellent restaurant which shows care and attention to detail. The staff are pleasant and knowledgeable.
The building’s architecture is very open with attractive decor and large views of an expansive built and natural landscapes. Lunch was fairly priced ($40-50 pp). The ingredients were fresh, nicely spiced and very colourful. The lentil soup ($9) was superb. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Although the dining area was populated, it was not noisy and conversations flowed easily. I look forward to another visit.
I had the lamb shank main course, which was very good, but the portion was very small. So, not for someone with a big appetite. Overall a little pricey for what you get.
My favourite. Excellent food and service. Unique taste and dining experience.
The staff were so accomodating for my friend who avoids gluten, peppers and dairy.
Very attentive and pleasant service to connoisseurs, delightful timely served food at perfect temperatures. Recommend location and food.
Our second time here. We try to enjoy the Mid East cuisine with its lamb and spices. The flavours were delicate yet present with a good bite. Lamb was properly cooked keeping its flavour and texture. Wait staff of at least three different people was informative and expedient. The small wine list is better than many more expensive and less imaginative lists. Especially enjoyed the Argentinian Malbec Rose.Only minor point, not complaint, is the tweeked traditional dessert Mahalabia which is different than last visit
and we were not able to compare our own efforts to copy the original. Coming again and again.
Exceptional service that truly complemented the food. Many thanks. We’ll be back!
We ordered a bunch of starter, appetizers, and main to share. Unfortunately they were all brought up at the same time so we have a challenge to try each kind in the proper sequence. Would be nice to present the food by category at least.
I put special request in the booking to have a high chair but it was not there when we arrived. We had to ask twice to get it set up.
After the main, we had to ask for the dessert menu.
Service was definitely better experience during the last visit and thus the return with friends and family. A bit disappointed this time.
Excellent food and excellent service and ample space and good acoustics so we can speak to each other and hear each other
Beautiful plates, interesting tastes, with attentive, peaceful service. A gorgeous room. The whole day was a wonderful experience.
Delicious food and non alcoholic beverages served with fresh flavourful ingredients and by very welcoming and attentive staff in a light-filled dining space with unique and simple decor tied into the story and setting of the museum. Would go back.
