“Good Curries”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

We are having a short holiday in Montville and decided to have lunch at the Dawaat Restaurant yesterday. We have been eating and cooking Indian for 40 years and know a bit about it. This was one of the best indian meals we have ever had in a restaurant. The curries were tasty, prawns in the prawn jalfrezi were plentiful and the naan delicious!! We ordered the curries "hot" and they were perfect to our taste. We can certainly recommend the Dawaat Restaurant also for the good friendly service - 2 young people having a go - they're certainly on their way!

“Poor value”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Ordered curried prawn and a curried fish dish to take away. Not many prawns and not much fish in lots of sauce. Maleny is poorly served by cheap take away restaurants.

“Delicious, quality, good value curries and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We had takeaway from Daawat two weeks ago with my curry loving family from the UK. It was our first try at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Tasty, fresh curries, in our case including a delicious beef jalfarezi, chicken korma and some malai kofte were complemented by rice and piping hot naan breads. All I can say is that if you want to know how good a curry is, ask a Brit, and my family loved it all. The fact that we could specify the chilli level was also helpful, as our kids vary in their taste for hot spicy dishes. At the end of a long day it was wonderful to have such fresh, tasty food available at a great price. Certainly very affordable for our families and a rare good value meal in a town with often grossly inflated restaurant prices. The staff were lovely too and there was certainly a family feel. We rarely eat out but have been back since and plan to do so again.

“Yes they do have the best butter chicken!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Cooked traditionally with the best ingredients, this restaurant offers you the best tastes of Indian cuisine to the taste and level of spice you desire, service with a smile and a friendly family environment, and yes they offer the very best butter chicken on the Sunshine Coast and hinterland,

I thoroughly recommend this restaurant whether you want to eat in or have a takeaway,

Awesome food!!
