Might not be for everyone but an experience better actualized than imagined. Food was excellent and the value equally so. Definitely worth checking out if just for the museum setting itself.

The server was not polite at all ... the minute we arrived at 8:30 she told us that we must order appetizers and our main she rushed us all.... we placed an order and while eating she came and asked us if we are going to have dessert as the coffee machine is going to be cleaned and washed we ordered ate and left before 10pm.

I really appreciated that you matched the cuisine in the restaurant to Islamic culture around north Africa and the Middle East and India. I have not found many restaurants in Toronto that can cook this type of food and do a great job of it. It brought back memories of Morocco and Turkey for me.

1. Online menu shows a fixed price menu. When I asked the server they advise that since Covid the fixed price is not available. That’s at least 3 months that the online menu is outdated.
2. Recommend you offer a discount on parking when dining.
3. Harissa chicken shawarma was delicious.

A few weird things here. I’m sure they’re trying to cater to a wide audience but they would benefit from being more bold with their spices in their dishes.after all, people should know what they are getting into when they book at a restaurant that bills itself as African/Arabic food. Service was good, ambiance was good, not too pricey and not noisy. Worth a visit.

Excellent food. Excellent service. When you book your reservation, you can ask for a table on the patio. The noise of the highway is pretty loud.

Very nice ambience on the patio with live music. Some mild noise coming from the DVP but not noticeable after 8pm. Food is delicious. Service was a little bit on the slow side, but we were not in a rush and they were busy. Highly recommend!

This is the most perfect experience in Toronto-delicious food, safe setting, great jazz music, beautiful ambience, wonderfully attentive staff. Really a special evening. Having a jazz band playing outside while dining inside with the doors open meant you could talk and enjoy the music at the same time. So special during Covid to have live music.

We rarely go to restaurants the last 5-6 months because of covid however our lunch at Diwan was a very safe and pleasant experience.We were asked if we had any symptoms of covid at the entrance .Our hostess then walked as to the spacious patio where the tables were set way apart , the food was delicious the service was fast and efficient .I highly recommend it to everyone who are especially timid to go to restaurants because of covid.

From the minute you are greeted to the minute you leave, the ambiance to the hostess to the food was just perfection. We were so worried about pandemic patio experience, but there was not a single detail left unturned to allay our concern. Very grateful for the music and the food quality as well. A beautiful evening. Thank You so much! No doubt I would return.

The ambiance together with that delightful jazz group and good food made for a perfect evening. Our only criticism has to do with the traffic noise from the Pkwy which perhaps could be reduced even more by planting dense fir trees on the perimeter of the main site. The trees On the two sides of the patio certainly help but maybe dense plantings beyond would reduce the noise even more. The view out over the reflecting pond toward the mosque is very special and it was nice that you provided chairs outside the restaurant area for casual visitors to the area to pause and listen to the music. Well done. We will be back.
