This fine-dining modern Indian restaurant is the brainchild of celebrity chef, Kunal Kapoor. The food philosophy brings traditional Indian food to the plate in a modern style. Some dishes also give in to Western influences like the Baileys-flavoured chhenna pie with a dollop of mascarpone. But for the most part, especially the main courses, the food remains traditional, like the haleem, which is reminiscent of the one served during festive occasions. This blend of the old, coupled with the quirky perspective of a chef who is at his creative best, makes Diya a memorable dining experience.

The best Indian fine dinning restaurant in Gurgaon Delhi. Located in the grand Leela Ambience Gurugram. I had the tasting menu.The fish/lamb starter was good. The star of the set was the soup which was heavenly. The chicken biryani main was tasty and done to perfection. Unfortunately it was not a happy ending. The dessert cheese cake was a few tar too sweet that ruined the closing. Wine selection was average. Service was friendly and attentive.
Awesome food. Every item was delicious. I order something which was not part of menu still they provided it without any hesitation.
Diya (Leela Kempenski): My review So Turki ( my nephew) took me and his dad out for a 5 star lunch in style to Leela Kempenski yesterday. We went to the restaurant 'Diya' that served north indian cuisine. For starters we ordered Gilafi Seekh kebab and Rann e Diya which is a chef speciality. For drinks, I chose a mocktail called Aam Panna Colada made of raw mango panna, coconut milk and pineapple juice. It was so delicious I have decided to create a cocktail version of it in future for myself. Turki chose Litchi blast, more or less a version of virgin mojito which was good but had less litchi juice in it. Nevertheless it tasted good. Turki's dad chose to have a glass of red wine which was from south africa. He said it was good. Now I have to say a few words about the rann we had. It was one of the best I have tasted. Succulent meat, perfectly chargrilled and juicy. You can cut through it like a hot knife through butter. I was so ecstatic that I let Leela's master chef Harish Tiwari know about it. No praise is enough for this one. For mains, we chose, again chef's speciality, Nalli Nihari with butter lachha parantha. The nalli nihari again was superb. I was almost licking my fingers!! By the time it was time for dessert, we were full but how can you leave without tasting the dessert? We ordered kesari rasmalai and I must say it was light, airy, just the right balance of sweetness and too delicious. I always had a notion that you get better food in individual speciality restaurants than in 5 star hotel restaurants. But Diya truly stood out in this respect. We came back home with belly full of happiness and mind full of satisfaction, for it was worth the value for money for us.
Nice ambiance of it, some more options to be added in desserts. Sitting was not comfortable, there should be some cushion on each chair.
