- Janice Lines

Fab food as always
Tasty food delivered on time as usual. Wouldn’t go anywhere else for our Indian takeaway.
- Danielle Spike

Very tasty
Hadn't tried the Dawat before but decided to try them as we could order online for home delivery. The food arrived fairly promptly all 3 main courses were very good add to that nice crispy papadums with all the pickles and we were well pleased. I'll definitely use the online service again and a visit to the restaurant is now on the cards.

Fantastic Quality
Have recently moved to the area and after trying out various different restaurants we have set ourselves on Dawat. The quality of the food is fantastic and we have never been let down. Food is always delivered piping hot and on or before the time suggested. We have recommended to all friends in the area.
- Matthew Collins

Food delivery
Excellent service and quality. Food arrived on time, was fresh and hot and plenty of it. I will most certainly order again.
- John Bartlett

Rubbish customer service
Food was lovely as usual, however the delivery time is very inaccurate even with the email saying it was adjusted. They do not keep you informed as to how late the food will be and over 2 hours for 1 main, a side and naan is ridiculous. Then when the order arrived it was incomplete and the promised free cobra was also non existent - this was promised when I had phoned to find out where the food was. Having telephoned the restaurant to say what was missing and been promised the items would be immediately delivered half an hour later and they are nowhere to be seen so I have overpaid for my very late meal. I would not order from here for delivery again - and they do not seem to care when they get it wrong.
- Karen Panter

Lovely food
As usual lovely food from Dawat and very speedy delivery too.
- Sarah Holland

Dawat Indian takeaway meal
Food arrived earlier than expected, which was pleasing. All food was very good and very enjoyable. No discount though for a large order
- Irene Leach

Two hours to arrive
Ordered around 8. Delivered after ten pm. Just eat called to ask where it was but nobody could hear as it was too loud. I phoned and they couldn’t hear me. No compensation to return as s loyal customer.

Best Indian in the area
Great selection menu to cater for all tastes (recommend most of the chefs specials ) always fresh,. The guys in the restaurant are always happy to advise the novice and tweak any of their dishes to suit. Eat in or take away, it's the best

Delicious food, delivery on time. Recommend the Dawat
- Johanna Gosden

Great food!
This was my first time ordering from Dawat! We ordered three dished and some rice for collection. There was a bit more waiting time than expected ( Said approximatley 30 min online, but we had to wait another 15min-ish at the restaurant where we went and collected ) But they had a nice waiting area to sit down at, and gave us free popadoms and some sauces as a a comp! :) They gave us nicely sized portions, that tasted really really great! Will definietly choose them again.
- Karianne Harrendran

Slightly salty but otherwise great.

Best Indian food around!!
Been using Dawat for last 8 years, the best Indian food for miles. Everything we have tried has been full of good flavour and regardless of takeaway or in restaurant the food has been hot and tastes great.
- Lisa Kent

Delicious as always

Order wrong and delayed
First time of ordering from Dawat. Disappointed, kept waiting additional 15mins , staff all bickering all of which can be forgiven if you recieve what you ordered. Got home no veg side dishes, won't use again.
- Darren Small

- Dave Raymond

Terrible delivery time
Appreciate it was Valentine's Day but and hour and 45 minutes when we live less than a mile away is unacceptable. Totally ruined our night. Did not even eat it as it was so late.
- Craig Lucas

Love Dawat throughly recommend it!
- Emma Sarton

Food good but too long to wait
Food delivered 2 hours after ordering
- Lauren Hillier

Excellent A+
Ordered meal online 5pm sat night - meal for six - picked up at agreed time. Everything accurate and food of a high standard. I would advise to order early to avoid a wait. 'All decent restaurants have plenty of customers at peak times '- no need to say this I know.
- Paul Williams

Good - without being excellent
Ordered for collection. Turned up to collect on time but was left waiting for 15 minutes. Had a meal for 4. Food was generally very good. Apart from anything that contained prawns - they were inedible and had to be picked out. My wife couldn't even cut one with a knife. Everything else was very good though and would order again - just no prawns!
- Scott Standing

Slow delivery
I have ordered food from Dawat many times and the quality is always good however the delivery times are getting slower and slower. This time my food took 2 hours to arrive so I'm afraid next time I will order from somewhere else.
- james allen

delivered after 2 hours of placing the order
On Saturday night we had friends over for dinner ,my partner placed an order at 7:30 pm by the time the food arrived was 9:40 pm. We phoned the restaurant and they apologized as they said it was busy ...I am sorry but it is too long and they should say when placing the order We order quite often from this place as food is good but in this occasion we are not happy at all.
- Javier Herrero

All great
- adem veli

- Gary Warner

- Umit Ozgur

Great as always.

Took 2 hours for food to arrive
Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed with the customer services. I was told my order would be with me by 9pm and it arrived at 10.10pm. I had to call them and after 33 times of calling they finally answered (prior to this someone kept answering and hanging up!)
- Tanya Curzon

Late again
Once again took nearly two hours for delivery. Tikka masala container was only half filled. So if you are starving don't order from here as delivery is awful. When you ring to enquire where meal is they just lie to you.
- Allison Williams

Online order
Came quickly, which was not the case when we phone ordered (twice)
- David Littleboy

Tasty but had missing food
Although the food was tasty and we got a free bottle of wine , we were missing our samosasfrom our order
- Karyn Elmore

Ordered from here and told to collect 35 mins later, when my husband arrived they told him very rudely not to order online again and to call. They said it'd be a further 15 minutes, my husband left then returned. When he asked if our order was ready the waiter was very aggressive and shouted at him to wait. He waited another 10 then asked again, and was again shouted at so he told them not to bother and we got a Chinese from a few doors down. Disguising service from Dawat, surprised they have any customers left.
- Natalie Fielding

Good food long wait
The food is always good although sometimes better than others but waited almost 2 hours for the delivery. If you can wait it is worth the wait most of the time.
- Danielle Spike

Food amazing - but had to wait 2 hours for delivery
This was our first order and I can't fault the food - it was delicious but having to wait over 2 hours was disappointing- considering I was told it would be a hour. The free bottle of beer was a nice touch, I would love to order again - I just hope the delivery time improves.
- Sarah Forde

Small samosas
I'd say the food was average, not bad but not fantastic.Chicken had a taste that it had been reheated and not cooked fresh, a little tough.Samosa's are ridiculously small, either make them bigger or make the portion size 4. 2 of these are very small and well over priced.
- Jo Middlemiss

Good food at good prices.
Quick simple easy-to-use.
- Lucy McGrady

Lovely food but took an hour and half to arrive!
I always love to food from Dawat but it seems to take longer to be delivered each time I order. Last night we waited an hour and half for our food to arrive.
- Victoria Clark

nice food
lovely food and free popadum. took a long time to arrive but I ordered late on a Saturday night so was expecting that
- Catherine Bolger

Very late delivery -poor excuses!!!!
Ordered online through their website which I have done previously and also had a problem the last time but gave them the benefit of the doubt as the food was lovely. Food was a hour a fifteen minutes late - 2 hours and fifteen minutes from order time! When I called the restaurant they were very rude and not one apology! When the food finally arrived we had spent over fifty pounds and we were given two poppadoms, considering we had ordered five curries assuming that five people were eating that is not even half a poppadom each! Food is delicious but the service received was so poor out of principal will not be ordering a takeaway from here again!
- Hayley Mcdonnell

Ordering online was easy and the food was delicious would recommend!
- Emma Sarton

Good food and service, will be back soon.
- Billy Lawson

Very good food
Very good food except they got my order wrong. Took an hour and 20 minutes to come besides being a 20 second drive away. Would order from here again though as such amazing food!
- Danielle Perfect

Food was generally not spicey or flavoursome enough and too much tomato input. Puri was too thick and solid.Liked the samosas though and poppadom and beer extras were a nice touch
