Restaurant Review: Diwani in Ridgewood

THE RECORD

If your idea of an Indian restaurant includes color-saturated décor and an atmosphere that’s alive with the resonant drone of sitars, you might want to give Ridgewood’s modest Diwani a pass. Beyond the colorful East Ridgewood Avenue façade, you’ll find a bland foyer used to store chafing dishes for Diwani’s lunchtime buffet. Beyond that, the dining room offers one mirrored flank among beige walls that are only minimally punctuated by Indian portraits. But those don’t really matter. You’ll be hard-pressed to notice anything in Diwani beyond the massive widescreen TV that irradiates the narrow dining room with music-filled Bollywood-style videos — that is, unless the programming is hijacked (as it was during one of my visits) by a 30-minute infomercial advertising a very suspicious-looking erectile dysfunction treatment (much to the amusement of Diwani’s diners).
