THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Diya Restaurant Review

: This sumptuous Indian restaurant has the look and feel of a high-end destination, and even has a small statue of an Indian deity out front. Not that the chef needs divine help: the kitchen’s efforts are more than above par, with dishes layered with flavor, heat and texture. Perhaps the best way to explore and appreciate the food is to line up a lunchtime buffet stop, at which point you can load your plate endlessly with such offerings as chicken makhani, grilled eggplant in curry sauce, and the special naans. You may also want to check out the menu for items like a Delhi burger (all lamb) and a Bombay burger (all vegetable). There’s a fairly fiery lamb vindaloo and a nicely gingered boti kebab (marinated lamb) appetizer, too. The chef introduced the ancient dum pukht method of slow-roasting foods in a clay pot over a hot fire. Carryout is available.
