Diya Sunset Harbourhas softly opened its doors in Miami Beach. A family passion, the vegetarian Indian eatery is family-owned and operated by Diya, her children, Manni, Dharam and Vidya Maharaj along with Dharam’s wife Valerie Slone. Raised in a vegetarian household, The Maharaj family identified a dearth for Indian cuisine that embraced the vegetarian and vegan movement.
Diya is a unique addition to the dining options in the trendy Sunset Harbour neighborhood of Miami Beach. The menu, inspired by Diya and crafted by her daughter, Executive Chef Vidya, features traditionally modern vegetarian Indian cuisine. Diya has always approached cooking for her family as a health-conscious and healing practiceusing immune–boosting ingredientsand an assortment of nutrient-dense spices. Theserecipes have been handed down from generation to generation. Growing up in MiamiBeach, the Maharaj home quickly became a neighborhood sanctuary for neighbors, friends and family seeking Diya’s tasteful cooking.
“We’ve been vegetarian our entire lives and have witnessed the evolution of vegetarian cuisine in Miami, as well as the limited selection of Indian cuisine,” said Dharam Maharaj. “We wanted to introduce a concept that authentically represented our heritage and offered extensive options for vegetarians and our community – a source for healthy and flavor-forward food.”
We loved this place! Service was not only professional and sanitary, but enthusiastic! Food was delicious. We had the Miami spice tasting menu so a bit of everything and it was all good.
Coming from a Miami Beach local this restaurant is the real deal. The food was absolutely delicious—flavorful and made with love, all at a completely reasonable price. Tasty AND affordable? Nearly impossible to find in the area. Will definitely be coming back here to try out the rest of the menu. Shoutout to NJ our server and the rest of the lovely, generous staff. If you’re thinking about dining at Diya—DO IT!
As a Miami Beach local, we've been needing a place like this for a LONG time. i.e. a really good restaurant with great service, that isn't overpriced or overly touristy. I've tried almost everything on the menu, and I promise that if you close your eyes and point to something random, it'll be delicious. Their head chef is a genius, their portion sizes are very generous, and the space is welcoming. Definitely my new favorite spot.
Awesome food authentic and so tasty The butter paneer was soooooo good. Service was perfect Served with mask and shield These guys have amazing drinks with even tastier food. Family friendly.
We love this place!! EVERYTHING from cocktails to dessert was simply fabulous! Service was top tier, our server was so knowledgeable in every dish and ingredient. The only bad thing is... we couldn't taste everything on the menu! Definitely our favorite place in sunset harbor. Can't wait to come back!!
Wow. This food made my day! Literally! We came across this gem. Eggplant Burger is a must and the Malai Kofta is amazing! (Watch out it’s spicy 🌶).The food is too good my Husband and I would come back 100 times even though we live 45 min away! I can’t wait to come back and try something new.
I usually don’t like vegetarian restaurants, but I highly recommend Diya. I ordered takeout, and the food was very good and well-seasoned. Additionally, the owners are very nice and understand how to get repeat business. Follow them on Instagram! They’ve got a great story to tell and they’re amazing people. I will definitely come back!
The food is spectacular and the price is reasonable for quality. The restaurant also has superb service. Their wait staff was on point and very attentive. Would recommend.
This place is lovely. The food is delicious and well priced. The service is the best I've had in Miami. NJ was our server and he perfect from beginning to end. Great service has a way of making the evening so much better and all of the staff at this restaurant make it their mission to optimize your experience. They also give great recommendations regarding the menu. We will be frequenting this place. Also, the food is ayurvedic so it's healthy.
This place is awesome the ambiance and attention to detail are amazing.. owners and staff are extremely attentive making sure each and every customer has whatever they need.. it was a full house tonight and food was delicious. I am visiting from out of town but absolutely one of my favorites!
Fantastic food! The new go-to for great Indian food and an easy atmosphere. Got the Paneer curry and garlic naan. The curry itself was very flavorful and not too spicy. The rice was pleasantly very delicious and the garlic naan was definitely one of the best I’ve had. It is a perfect medley of flavors dancing around in your mouth! Recommend!
Me and my friends happened to come across this place and let me say We were so happy and we were treated beyond amazing. This has been an great experience, the manager and the chef came by an checked on us, as well as our server Njay was so nice and made the experience beyond excellent. Not only that but the food was fresh, delicious and soooo many amazing vegetarian options, which is hard to come across. Will be coming back as well as telling everyone I can about this place!!!!
