Def the best ambiance for Indian food in Kelowna. I still like Chutney better.

Had trouble with the staff regarding my reservation which was done on Open Table. Our table was located by the window and was cold and draughty.
On payment the waiter insisted on standing at the table, while my cash payment was being made. This has never happened at this restaurant before.
Disappointing

Every-time we have dined here has been outstanding. This is why we became regulars, However tonight was extremely different. First we made reservations via open table as we always do and they couldn’t find the reservation, we noticed this with another couple seated close by. Who ended up talking to us. I ordered something different then normal & my husband ordered something he has had before and they were both not that great but I didn’t want to say anything as everything else we have ordered has been amazing and I knew it was maybe just a bad night... but what was THE most uncomfortable thing which makes me want to write this review, was as soon as we paid the bill the owner came to the table and asked if he could have our table as a guest was waiting for this table.. we were there about 1 hr and 5-10 mins. The bill coming pretty much after we finished and I took my last sip of wine which was only one glass. I’ve never been asked to leave ever or after i swallowed the last bite of a meal or sip of a drink. If we had been there for hours doing nothing I’d understand, but this was not the case. We have never been treated so rudely or disrespectful and we spoke to the owner about this and there was no effort to make things better. We will never be back.

Our first time here...we tried the dinner for 2 and the food was excellent. Nice variety when you aren’t sure what to try!
Server was friendly but maybe new? Didn’t advise us of drink or appetizer special which we may have tried. Overheard another table being told by their server.
Overall a nice place and we would come back.

Another great meal at Dawett. Took some friends visiting Kelowna who were looking for some great food and as always Dawett didn't disappoint. If you want great Indian food in Kelowna, Dawett is the place!

As usual, a delicious meal, with new dishes tried, korman shrimp was very tasty. The roti was the only of the 12 dishes we did not enjoy.

My husband and I lunched at Dawett Fine Indian Cuisine. We had the Lamb Vindaloo. We selected medium hot spiciness. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was swift and unobtrusive. We ate late so the restaurant was quiet. Really liked the layout and decor. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I have ate here on a few other visits and the food was fine.

This time however food was bad and service was worse. The calamari came out like warm, paneer was the same and the butter chicken was tough.

There was only one other table in the restaurant and we barely saw our waitress and when we did it felt like we were putting her out.

I will not be back due to the experience.

Awesome meal again at Dawett Fine Indian Cuisine. This isn't just the best Indian food in Kelowna, it's also one the best restaurants, regardless of cuisine.

If you haven't eaten here, you are missing out!

Nice change of pace from North American food. Stepping outside our comfort zone we tried the lamb combo and the chicken ( ginger curry cumin -heat level 3). We loved the spices in the chicken -not so much the lamb.
The Indian version of what constitutes a salad ( very basic) came as a surprise. The vegetable samosas were very good.
When we go again we will try something different on the menu just to stretch our taste buds.

Always excellent service and food here. We sat on the upstairs terrace and it was quiet and we had great weather, so why not? Just us up there until we were almost done our meal. The patio could use a little more charm, but the food and service is our main draw to this restaurant.

Food is very good, service was the worst I have ever experienced. Sat at the table for 20 minutes without water, let alone having someone come take my order

Love the food here and usually all is satisfactory. However, after our meal we were going to order after dinner drinks but our waitress was nowhere to be found. After approx 15 minutes, we asked another waitress is she could locate our waitress. Finally, our waitress appeared but by that time it was too late to order our drinks. So, we lost out and so did Dawett.

Dawett is one of my very favourite restaurants in town. It was my husband and my first date and the place we had our wedding rehearsal dinner. The manager/owner knows us by name and always makes sure we are enjoying ourselves. The staff is wonderful and very prompt. The food is unbelievable as is the rice and fresh naan bread. The menu is very large with a huge variety of different dishes. We will always be regulars at Dawett - I cant say enough good things!

Love this place. Wish I could go more often. By far the best Indian restaurant in Kelowna if not the best overall restaurant.
