My family and I had dinner at this restaurant tonight. From the menu, we ordered the Tandoori Chicken (platter); and the Fish Vindaloo. The tandoori chicken comes with some extra butter chicken sauce, which provided an extra additional favour to the rice that came with the platter. The fish was perfectly made and the prices are very reasonable.

I love Dawett! They have excellent food and a good service. Lunch is always different and always fantastic. For dinner they have a lot to choose from and I have never eaten anything that wasn't fantastic there! I usually get take-out at night as you get almost double the portion size for the same price then staying in!

I have been to Dawett many times both for lunch and dinner. It is great every time. I think their lunches offer outstanding value. Their lunch special is $9.95 and you get a platter of Indian food goodies - usually butter chicken, potatoes and cauliflower, chick peas or beans, a little mini salad, rice and naan bread. They could easily... More

Not only is this the best Indian food we've ever had, it's some of the best food we've ever had, period. Fast service. We made a reservation for 4 on Saturday. The place was busy, but everything was still very quick. Servers are very knowledgable, and friendly. We had the Navratan Korma, Butter Chicken, Vegetable Biryani, and Tandoori Prawns, and... More

We always enjoy the food here and our last visit was no exception. The fish and chicken dishes were tasty and I love the Nan bread. However, service left much to be desired. We arrived at our reservation time and stood for 5 minutes at the door before anyone came to seat us. We got water promptly but did not... More

We had a 5:30 dinner reservation for four, on a week night, before heading to the theatre. We were on time, and even at that, when we requested, couldn't move to a larger table. Although the setting was a little cramped, the food made up for the moderate discomfort. We loved the coconut chicken, husband's favourite was the eggplant, the... More

If you are looking for quality authentic Indian cuisine, this is the place. From traditional to unique dishes, they always come out on top. I have only ordered delivery from this place, but have done so many times. Flavour packed and always on time. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

The food was so yummy and service was excellent. I had the Tandoori chicken with butter sauce and rice, two star, excellent. I can't wait to go back.

The food was tasty but the server was a little strange. We didn't end up getting exactly what we wanted and the rice portions were small. Very friendly staff though. Sadly we all had bad tummies after we ate here (and we eat a lot of Indian food, so it wasn't the type of food). There were two families in... More
