Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Diwana has been a Drummond Street fixture since 1971, drawing families from across the capital with its upbeat atmosphere and menu of south Indian vegetarian street food.

The bright interior is functional at best – its wooden panelling, pine tables and dog-eared, laminated menus more reminiscent of a mountain-top canteen than a busy spot by Euston station – but that only further emphasises the quality of the cooking. Bhel poori is the big draw, small plates of savoury snacks (including puffed pooris, samosas, dhals and chutneys), suitable as starters or, ordered in large enough quantities, a meal in themselves.

Those seeking more substantial feeding can opt for a crispy filled dosa or a vegetarian thali mixing rice with a variety of vegetable curries; there’s also a hearty lunch buffet on weekends.
