We had dinner there last Monday. The food was excellent and we both enjoyed the meal. However the overall dining experience was sadly let down by the condition of the restaurant chattels. The backs of the chairs were filthy and did detract from a nice meal. I would have thought it quite a simple matter to have the chairs cleaned. Location was excellent with good parking.

I've been eating at Daawat for years. My favorites are Chicken Lavabdar, Lamb Corma, all Tikka entrees, while my 9 year-old daughter likes mild Butter Chicken. When coming with bigger company, we go for Tandori Platter as an entree.

Restaurants is cozy, with Indian decor and it feels like you are at a family gathering. The candles and lights make it appear very relaxing, and service is discrete, but attentive. It takes bookings and take-away orders.

Great selection and tasty food. We have both dined in and had takeaways. The food has been consistently good and the service is great. Probably the best curry spot in Wellington.

We went to Daawat in Johnsonville again last Thursday. I had the butter chicken and my partner tried a new dish that was recommended to him by the owner. Both meals were delicious and the service was, as always, excellent.

Highly recommend this place.

We have been to Daawat in Manners Street on a number of occasions and have always been more than happy with our dining experience. The owner has got to know us and and he will always put us at the same table that we have always sat at. The staff is very welcoming and the food is very good and the naan breads are just so delicious.!!!! We love it.
