Diva Somerville

I decided to do something different for my Monday Indian lunch, so I headed out to Diva Indian Bistro in Davis Square. I have seen this place open, expand and then contract back to the original size. This also gave me a chance to check out a couple of new places. Both looked promising.

They have a decent buffet, and it looked just about the same as when I was here little over a year ago. The price has increased to $10.95.

The Tandoori Chicken was tender and tasty with a really nice smoky flavor from the tandoori. This is one of the better renderings of this classic that I have had in a long time. I'm never sure if the onions that the chicken rest on is for decoration or not, but the onions looked seasoned and ready to eat so I did. Very delicious. The Potatoes and Green Beans sans the beans were also good. How do they cook the potatoes perfectly every time? The Saag Paneer was a bit bland, but the Dal was delicious. After I finished dissecting the Tandoori chicken and started eating, everything was cold. Not sure if it was the window table or if I took too long time deboning the chicken. The do have papads on the buffet, and this makes me happy as does the linen napkins.

This time I was offered a choice of naan, and of course, went with the garlic naan. It's excellent, thin and light, and properly brushed with butter.
I used the GoPapaya app to book my table and received a 25% discount on my bill. How neat is that?
