Wow!! The food here is absolutely wonderful!! We started with vegetarian samosas, which are a common staple in any Indian restaurant. They were just how we love them, and the mint and chutney sauce is always a nice condiment. They have quite possibly the most...tender Lamb Rogan Josh I've ever eaten. Perfectly spiced to medium heat (they can make it spicier on request) each bite was relished. The Palak Paneer was so delicious we demolished it before being able to get a photo of it. Soft cheese in spinach is a nice spice-free dish to balance out the food order. My wife loves this one! The Lamb Biryani has such wonderful aromatics complimented by that exquisite tender lamb aforementioned - Highly recommend this dish! We also loved the mouth-watering Chicken Tikka-Masala and its addictive creamy sauce. Having soft centred but crispy Naan to help scoop up the thick flavorful sauce is a must. The chef / owner is Punjabi and exudes great care, pride and attention-to-detail in every dish he puts out to every customer.💞 The attentive service here is great, and even on busy nights there wait isn't even noticeable. This place is great not just for a couples, but large groups can easily be catered for. They hold monthly buffet nights where you can sample a bit of everything for one affordable price. Come to Dawat and experience truely authentic North Indian style cusine. You will be back sooner than you expect, as we were. 😄😄More

Tonight we went out to Dawat restaurant (Futian, line 2 Yannan exit C). Omg 😱😱😱 The food, the service, the place itself are incredible!!! It’s very spacious, suitable even for an Indian wedding 💃🕺, with a rooftop. The food was served within 10-20 minutes. We...ordered Mutton Biryani (lamb was super tender; rice was very flavorful); Palak Paneer (didn’t take a picture because I wolfed it down within 10 minutes 😂😂😂), vegetable samosas, garden salad (with goat cheese). Masala tea was neither too sweet, nor too sour. It was perfect!!!!! Even my husband who doesn’t really like tea ordered a cup for himself. We highly recommend Dawat if you fancy Indian cuisine in Futian 👍👍👍More

There are close to 4 or 5 Indian restaurants around this place but this place has best quality food, Feels really good and no other side effects with food consumed here. We stayed for close to 14 days and most of our lunch/dinner was here.

The owner is a really nasty horrible person who delivers terrible service. He attacks people in WeChat groups. Pity because the food is ok. Good lunch and dinner specials No atmosphere here. Go to Bollywood. Much better

Came here with my friends. We had tikka masala chicken, lamb, potatoes, rice and bread. I recommend this place if you want to eat good Indian food with uncompetetive price.

We had a set menu, paid for in advance by Internet at a discount. This turned out amply sufficient for four. The food was delicious, and authentic according to an Indian friend who accompanied us. Service is very friendly and there are ample seats (two...or three floors). Definitely come back.More
