Great Indian for Mexico

I have been here 3 times now and have always had a great meal. The lamb kabab for a starter is really tasty and more than enough for 2 people as a starter. Chicken tikka masala made extra spicy, aloo gobi as a side dish, and the vegetable rice. The aloo gobi is great. I really like that they made... read more

This was recommended for vegetarian options for us when we were staying in the Polanco. I had chicken biryani- and though it didn't resemble most of the Biryanis I have had in the past, it was actually pretty enjoyable. The main problem is that it didn't have the diversity of spice that would normally be there- instead it was permeated... More

Looking for Indian taste in Mexico, then Dawat is best option amongst all. Food ( vegetarian, since I tried only veg) is very good, service is average & cost is also reasonable.

There aren't a lot of Indian places in Mexico City and Dawat has excellent food and delivery, which is great! I agree it is a little pricey, but this is Polanco where everything is expensive. I think the annoying part is that you have to order rice in addition to your dish - at most places in the U.S. for... More

I was tired of eating junk food on my trip before i reached Mexico. Did some research and Dawat stood out as an Indian restaurant in Mexico. I was not at all disappointed with the food. Good variety and great taste. Highly recommend chhole bhature and dal makhani..

We went here after seeing the high rating Dawat had on Google, but it was a mistake! Service was painfully slow, and the food was sub-par. We ordered a tomato soup and got something that tasted like sour Ketchup. Then, we had Daal Fry and Malai Kofta. The Daal Fry was okay to eat alone, but with roti or rice,... More
