Great little Indian place in the heart of Dalston. Small but thought through menu - don’t be afraid to try something other than the well knows curries!

2nd time here, delicious food and drinks! Tried the aloo palak - was tasty but I thought it would be nicer with more spinach vs potato (but I guess that would be a saag aloo) Would come back again!

Delicious food and cocktails behind an unassuming facade. I love that it has a neighbourhood restaurant feel, totally unique and independent. Would recommend and would come back! I wish Attawa delivers to Limehouse...as we are slightly outside the delivery radius.

This was our second visit to Attawa and our first indoor dining experience post lockdown and it certainly didn't disappoint. Food was outstanding especially the tandoori lamb chops which were full of flavour and beautifully cooked. Other dishes of note were the tasty soft shell crab, gol guppas and the punjabi chicken kari. Cocktails were also delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend!

Great new addition to the Dalston restaurant scene. Authentic, tasty Punjabi fare with a cosy atmosphere. Highlights for us were the tandoori lamb chops and the biryani.

Enjoyable meal, good sized portions, loved the lamb biryani. The samoas were good sized, not remotely greasy but did lack flavour but overall good meal and we will be back. Noticeable that doing a roaring take away trade as well. Good social distancing

A friend & I were very excited to try Attawa, and we weren’t disappointed! The food & service were absolutely faultless! I loved the decor of the restaurant too. As a punjabi myself I can vouch that the gol guppa’s were fab!

Fantastic food - would highly recommend the lamb chops. The Palak Papdi Chaat (vegan)
on the sharing plates list was actually the best dish of the night. Great cocktails and nice wine list. Staff were super friendly/helpful and had great recommendations. Such a nice touch that they "brand" the naan bread.
