On a hot sweaty Canada Day, Diana's again seemed to be the only restaurant in Guelph open. That night we had a very relaxed meal in the dining room. The decor is very odd, metal chairs and tables true to their coffee shop roots combine with local artwork and African prints. Oddly enough it makes for a casual and friendly atmosphere. But it is not the decor that will bring you back, it is the food. Diana's has two menus. They have a "Canadian/International" menu and an East Indian menu. We have only ordered off the East Indian menu and have never been disappointed. The Mishkaki (tandori beef tenderloin) was delicious and the serving very generous but the coconut chicken was divine. Rich and spicy with chunks of moist chicken. This is one of the best meals that I have had. The wait staff warned us when we ordered that it would take a while and she was not kidding. It took almost half an hour to get our meals but the food is all prepared fresh and is well worth the wait.
Diana's is also one of the only restaurant's in Guelph with a sidewalk patio. This makes it a great place to sit and sip a beer, and enjoy the sun. Of course while you there you should have one or two of the pakora's with your beverage.
Diana's is one of Guelph's gems and like most things in Guelph it is just quirky enough.

It's a pleasant dining experience in Guelph's downtown. Although they make North American fare for the timid, their Indian food is yummy. Unless you have a fear of fried foods, try their pakoras and samosas. Their tamarind sauce is very tasty.
