I come to Mexico often and stay in Polanco. When I have a craving for Indian food I go here. The food quality is decent but portions are small. the ambiance leaves much to be desired . The seats are old and outdated and found an open nail on one occassion. Be careful with the bill they charge a service... More

I seek out Indian restaurants in foreign cities not so much because I want to eat food from my native country, but to check out whether they are representing Indian cuisine authentically. Dawat was a big disappointment in this respect. They cater to the commonly held perception of the "spicy" Indian food. Indian food with its blend of exotic spices... More

Being a big fan of Indian food, I can't call it authentic indian food what they serve in Dawat. It's overpriced, service is slow and really really bad. They bring you chicken when you asked for seafood and wouldn't do anything about it. What the??? Also, they charge you more money "by mistakes" and it takes ages for them to... More

We had a three course meal, starters and sauces were fresh and tasted great, even though they didnt have mango chutney. main was again great and we had Kulfi (indian pistachio ice cream) to finish which was absolutely delightful. Staff were friendly and the restaurant was very quiet for a saturday night. All in all very nice meal just a... More

It's quite the adventure trying new restaurants in different cities and Dawat is definitely theee best restaurant here for Indian cuisine. The place is very small and the ambiance is peaceful. There is a glass window to watch the actual Indian chefs make fresh authentic indian dishes. Tandoori dishes are fresh and full of flavor! The naan and parathas are... More

I have been to Dawat twice and have enjoyed it both times. I like Indian food a lot, and I think the food quality is good, but portion sizes are a little small. Last night we had the chicken tikka masala (one of my favorites) and a spicy lamb dish, along with the lentils (which I love). When combined with... More

This place has great food (but pricey for portion size). You will not find a better Indian restaurant in Mexico. The restaurant itself is very smile and the service is not the best but you cannot go wrong with the food.

The restaurant is really overpriced and the food is absolutely the worst I have ever had! The ambiance is not much to speak of either. We ordered chicken biryani, karhai and tandoori chicken. It would be very difficult for me to rank which of the three dishes was the worst! I have a hard time believing that someone who cooks... More

My wife and I went to Dawat to try their Indian food and were pleasantly surprised with the meal. We have a couple of appetizers that were great and I had the chicken marsala while my wife had a lamb plate. My dish was quite tasty and the roti and nann bread was good as well. We had both rice...
