The service was amazing. The gentleman waiting us were very helpful and the food was fantastic. I'm Indian so I know my food very well and the flavors were not over-the-top but complimented each other just right. I would definitely come back.

Terrific meal with a mix of traditional Indian restaurant favorites and some unique to Dawat. Probably still the best Indian restaurant in New York City.

Food was fair, I had better Indian food on a flight. This was eatable but you can taste that the meat has been cooked separately and thrown in the different sauce right before getting to your table. This was confirmed by our nice waiter. Nothing to say on the service. We were hungry with some rice it took care of it. We knew we were not going to a fine dining Indian Restaurant but it could have been better with very little effort.
