I have been eating at Diwanekhaas-(the best indian food) for over 5 years…at least once a week (and sometimes twice a week!). I always love my meal whether it’s the daily special or their regular dishes. The owners are extremely nice and the staff is polite and always helpful. I can’t recommend Diwanekhaas enough!

I’ve been working in the Financial District over five years now and have been a regular at Diwan from Day One. I am at this point pretty much addicted to their chicken masala, though I’m just as partial to the chicken curry. And if I really feel like treating myself, I call ahead for the chicken biryani (indescribably good). I always do one of their entrée-plus-a-side lunch specials, so I’m happily familiar with their vegetable offerings as well. Hard to pick a favorite here: their spinach—with homemade cheese cubes!—is amazing; ditto the mashed eggplant; and I think you probably get a bowl of their black lentils as soon as you arrive in heaven. And I would order the fresh-baked naan for the smell alone, but the taste is out of this world. I’ve been to Indian restaurants all over the city, and Diwan is top of the list for offering high-quality food at prices an office worker can afford.
