Cheap, cheerful and good tasting food. 6 of us dined at Adiva on Friday, the atmosphere was fun and partylike, food was of a good standard various meats with the grilled platters to share, we chose a selection of mezzes to start all tasting fresh and plentiful. Waiters were helpful as its byo they chilled out beers etc without asking. Belly dancer is fun and you can dance with her, all for £19.

I cannot comment on the quality of the eat-in food as we got a takeaway from this place last night. All I can say is do *not* get takeaway from here. Food took an hour and a half to arrive, then had to wait 45 more minutes for our desert, which was not delivered at first. Had to call up twice to chase it up. I wouldn't have minded that too much, but the price of the food was astronomical, and the portions laughably minute. The mains were also only luke-warm by the time they arrived. In short - avoid, avoid, avoid.
We had a very friendly waiter, who served us well and gave us complimentary coffee at the end. Excellent service. The food was delicious, great portions for the price and also high quality. We shared a meat feast platter that was meant for one person but left both of us stuffed! Delivered quality, quantity and value, plus BYOB. Every restaurant should be like this.
Nice decor, fab tasty good quality food. The staff were attentive all the time and were really helpful in speaking to me and my partner about the menu, friendly. Great entertainment with an amazing performance by the resident belly dancer. Fun upbeat atmosphere good for a party celebration.
Visited Adiva restaurant on the off chance last weekend and was really happy with everything. The staff were super helpful and recommended and assisted with menu choices are really wanted to help, the food was fresh, tasty and healthy. The restaurant was busy with large large groups but I was happy as there was not an extended wait for our food although these tables were also being served at the same time. The best surprise was the amazing belly dancer, loved the show. This is relaxing not rush, fun restaurant. As it is BYOB makes it very good value for money.
