“Good indian meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

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 little pricey. Tip is obligatory 10% which i think is a little rude.

“Delicious Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

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 the real deal. The curries are delectable and the Okra dish was amazing! Also, at the table they provide chili green chutney and tamarind (ambli) sauce... condiments that can pleasantly surprise all tastebuds! Servers were very friendly and we would definitely return when in Mexico City :)

“Good Indian Food in DF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

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 the lemon rice and some naan it was a very good dinner. The restaurant is very small and a bit out of the way for the Polanco area. The service was friendly and very good (but we were the only patrons for a while.

“Best Indian in Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

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.

“HORRIBLE FOOD AND OVERPRICED!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

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 so poorly would be hired to be a chef of one of the few Indian restaurants in Mexico city. Save your time and money and dine elsewhere!
