“great Indian restaurant”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

We had a late lunch here; it was our second Indian restaurant in two days! The staff was very accommodating. We went to restaurant at 2 PM & were told restaurant opened for lunch at 2:30. We waited 1/2 hour & then when we went in, we were told it actually closes at 2:30 until later for supper. The waiter was very apologetic about initially telling us the wrong thing and about our waiting, so he kept the restaurant open and let us have lunch!! It was really good service and the food was scrumptious. Garlic naan has lots of garlic & wonderful aroma & flavor. Ginger cauliflower soup was pureed with cauliflower, cumin flavors. We had two wonderful vegetable dishes: one stuffed eggplant. We will definitely come back.

“Fairly good food, mediocre ambience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food doesn't compare in succulence and taste to the better Indian restaurants in delhi or even New York. Slightly overpriced and surrounding ambience can be refreshed.

“Really good”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went to Dawat for dinner with 5 other people. The food was excellent and the service was great. We tried the chicken chettinad and it was very tasty if you like spicy food. Would go back again.

“Wonderful food in a very comfortable setting”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Great food... we had never been to this restaurant before and simply booked reservations based on others' reviews. The food was great, wonderful staff, and a very calm, well-lit setting. We ate on a Sunday night. The restaurant was crowded and lively, but the tables are not on top of one another, making for easy table conversation.
