I had a nice Tandoori mixed grill at the Dawat in Mahboula. Looking at the pictures on the menu, many meals came with chips as did mine, I asked if I could have rice instead and got some steamed vegetables. Oh well.

This is one of the popular Indian restaurants with branch at Mahboula also. This is quite popular in Locals for its spicy and more or less authentic Indian cuisine. For vegetarian also you can find good starters and regular food but ensure your place during weekends as usually it's crowdy. Indian flavored methi malai nagar and roti is good combination... More

Good joint for family get-togethers. Good Ambience and nice food. Service was exemplary and recommended for family dinners. Parking is a problem though

The food is not bad but the place is too small. It needs renovation also. The service was a little bit slow.

Amazing food - traditional and authentic. Excellent service as well. They ensure they customize the food to our needs. We asked for minimum spice and got just that! The kids loved the biriyani.

One of the best places to eat Indian food and highly recommended to eat Mushroom sizzlers. Its one of a kind and one of the best selling dish.

Good Indian food. Specially nice for vegetarian and desserts. Non veg items are good too. But the prices are not that reasonable

Located in Binad Al Gar, Abu Halifa, Jahra and Farwaniya.Dawat ventured into providing the grandeur of hospitality to the people of Kuwait by opening its first branch in Benid Al Gar in 1992 and extended its roots by opening its second branch in Mahboula in 2005 and third branch in Jahra in 2008. Increasing popularity of Dawat among the public encouraged the opening of a fourth branch in Farwaniya.
