It's also a civilized place to dine, with a white table cloth atmosphere that includes friendly and professional service. The dishes we ordered received raves at our table. Thank you, Dawat, for being so reliably good year in and year out!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMCome get Indian food+great service!The setting was very nice and gives you an vibe of opulence. This was very comforting and only added on when the service was so attentive to your needs. You do not finish a glass of water without seeing it refilled or wait for long periods of time for your food. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want an romantic outing, special occasion, or want to try the best Indian food in town.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful traditional IndianWonderful traditional Indian food served by a great staff.

Do yourself a favor and try the corn chaat - it's my new favorite Indian appetizer.
Excellent service - close to the level of one of those uber-expensive places like Asiate. Friendly and available without being pushy. Good suggestions (really - those curries were fantastic).
We arrived 20 minutes past our 6:30p Saturday reservation but were seated immediately. And they listened when we said we needed to make a show - we were out of there after just an hour.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMit's one of the best indianit's one of the best indian restaurants in nyc. we had a special table need. it was our son's 30th birthday and we we 8. maitre'd said their largest round table prob. wasn't large enough. but just to be certain. he had the table set for 8 and yes he was right. too small. but i loved that he tried. and the food was sensational4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDawat's food is so good itDawat's food is so good it is off the charts, but the most wonderful thing about this restaurant is that the staff is so welcoming and helpful.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTHE best.
