The food was excellent as was the service and decor.
ALWAYS EXCELLENT! Chicken Tika masala is the BEST. Great rice pudding too
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.
First rate Indian restaurant on Upper east side. Excellent neighborhood restaurant
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.
Very, very good upscale Indian food. Feels authentic with top quality ingredients.
High quality Indian food. Amazing curry. Great lamb. Excellent service
Food and service excellent as usual. Great place to eat.
Beautifully prepared food and elegant service. This place well deserves its excellent reputation.
I had read stellar reviews of Dawat but my own experience was less than stellar. It wasn't bad -- it just didn't live up to my expectations. The consensus of the table (4 people) was that it was not that special. Perhaps we ordered badly. The appetizers were all fried, and, I thought, too dry. However, the special bread (I can't remember the name) was quite good, as was the special cornish hen dish. My baked eggplant dish was not memorable. We ate early (5:30) because of an early theatre curtain, and the service was quite attentive.
The food was nice, above standard for indian cuisine and creativeness/originality on dishes was only fair. Personally, the food, ambiance and service were not worth the price, and feel could get similar or better quality Indian food, service and atmosphere and many other choices.
You will get very little for your money. There was barely anything to eat particularly with the
chicken tikka marsala. In addition, you will pay for rice which is standard at other Indian
restaurants. Pass this one up.
We were the last diners to arrive before closing and were treated exceptionally despite keeping the staff overtime. Delicious cuisine. Highly recommend.
This used to be a good restaurant. We do love Indian food, but this was very disappointing.
We had the Dawat Special and the Mixed Grill. My husband left most of his mixed grill and I also did not enjoy my food, dried out chicken and tasteless side dishes. We will not be back.
Every dish we ordered was prepared and served with its own unique taste. The service was impeccable. The tastes were wonderful.
I have loved Indian food for 50 years. This was one of the best on five continents.
Varietà, creatività e qualità del cibo ottima. Il "raan" è straordinario ed estremamente abbondante (suggerisco per sharing). Ambiente familiare molto tranquillo anche se un po old-fashioned. Servizio cortese e puntuale.
Excellent place if you like Indian food. Very attentive service. As good a meal as I have had at any restaurant.
This is one of our must visit restaurants in NYC. Fantastic cuisine, accommodating and friendly staff and overall terrific. We have dined here for over 25 years celebrating every thing from dinner with friends, anniversaries, our son's graduation from NYU etc.
