This is a nice restaurant in Davis Square about 5-7 mins from the T. It had a nice ambiance. We had a group of ten from a wide background. They all liked the place for its decor, ambiance and food.

The tomato coconut soup is very good. The naan was fresh and the prices are reasonable. Curried chicken was very flavorful. If you like spicy hot you will like it here.

I love Indian food, but my husband is not a huge fan. Even he loved Diva Indian Bistro. We sat at a charming table overlooking the street in Davis Square. Everything was extremely flavorful.

Went here with friends and enjoyed a nice meal. I eat Indian food all over the country - and in India - and have to say, Diva was good, but not great, food. Same for the service - good, but not great.

I have had one meal at Diva and it was excellent. Indian food is a favorite and I don't recommend it lightly. Diva is a great find. The food is authentic, the spices as ordered and the servings plentiful. We had a nice bottle of...More
