Diva review

Hi all...

Not a ton of time to post but just wanted to report back on my meal last night at Diva. The food was excellent...4 of us shared a garlic naan, some sort of naan stuffed with potatoes, and little pieces of chicken fried in a crispy chick-pea batter. All great. Entrees were a mix of chicken and vegetable dishes, all in interesting sauces...esp liked the chicken tikki masala, in a creamy, tomatoey sauce with lots of indian spices.

Service was mediocre, at best. We waited about 15 minutes before being greeted, then maybe another 15 minutes after being greeted before our drinks came. Food came out sporadically (which I believe Dax mentioned)...actually, we got one dish ahead of all others...but it wasn't one we ordered (some tandoori dish with a few exotic looking meats - sausage? tongue? not quite sure, but nothing our crowd wanted to try and figure out) They admitted their mistake and the correct dishes followed fairly quickly after.

All in all, a good experience. Food is great...service could definitely use a bit of help though....
