Not only is this the best Indian food we've ever had, it's some of the best food we've ever had, period. Fast service. We made a reservation for 4 on Saturday. The place was busy, but everything was still very quick. Servers are very knowledgable, and friendly. We had the Navratan Korma, Butter Chicken, Vegetable Biryani, and Tandoori Prawns, and... More

We always enjoy the food here and our last visit was no exception. The fish and chicken dishes were tasty and I love the Nan bread. However, service left much to be desired. We arrived at our reservation time and stood for 5 minutes at the door before anyone came to seat us. We got water promptly but did not... More

We had a 5:30 dinner reservation for four, on a week night, before heading to the theatre. We were on time, and even at that, when we requested, couldn't move to a larger table. Although the setting was a little cramped, the food made up for the moderate discomfort. We loved the coconut chicken, husband's favourite was the eggplant, the... More

If you are looking for quality authentic Indian cuisine, this is the place. From traditional to unique dishes, they always come out on top. I have only ordered delivery from this place, but have done so many times. Flavour packed and always on time. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

The food was so yummy and service was excellent. I had the Tandoori chicken with butter sauce and rice, two star, excellent. I can't wait to go back.

The food was tasty but the server was a little strange. We didn't end up getting exactly what we wanted and the rice portions were small. Very friendly staff though. Sadly we all had bad tummies after we ate here (and we eat a lot of Indian food, so it wasn't the type of food). There were two families in... More

My wife and I visited Dawett last night together with friends. I had heard of this restaurant but had never eaten there before. My experience with Indian restaurants is checkered. I have been at some very good places but also had food that was clearly sub-par in other places. Dawett came through with flying colours. Our whole dining experience was... More

We had the butter chicken, but although it was tasty, I recall it having more intense flavours in the past. I was disappointed, as this has been our perennial favorite restaurant because of the butter chicken. The tamarind sauce served with our samosas was the highlight of my meal. Although we were the first people of the day at our... More

Visited Dawett for my birthday dinner. My daughter made reservations and we were seated promptly upon arrival, the waitress was very helpful with navigating the menu being our first visit. The food was amazing, we picked a number of dishes and shared them. No shortage of food even though the size of the dishes was deceiving. My wife loved being... More
