Several dishes were missing from our takeaway which was also not ready when we were told it would be. The food that we did have was good.

We eat regularly at Dawat and have done so since it opened 10 plus years ago.

We have honestly never had a meal there that was not first class. The breads , the vegetable dishes and the mains are always cooked to perfection. The food is very reasonably priced and the service always quick.

The waiters are so nice , friendly and hardworking. Shafik and Muni ( excuse spelling) are fantastic at their job and we have never seen them without big smiles on their faces.

Highly recommend.

Tried their Sunday buffet which was a great way to feed a bunch of kids. Decent choice of dishes and of course help yourself to as much as you want. Good, standard, UK indian food.

Having only just arrived on the island, my girlfriend and I were wondering where to go for dinner, as we had not booked a meal at our hotel.

The map that we had been provided with by the car hire company had a number of vouchers with it, one of which was for Dawat, which was only ten minutes away from our hotel, so we decided to ring and book a table for two.

However, finding the restaurant was not the easiest task as it is not particularly well identified and we drove past it twice! On finding the restaurant, the frontage is not very appealing and we were on the verge of seeking somewhere else for dinner but decided to cross the threshold nevertheless as it had taken rather more than the anticipated ten minutes to get there! It should be noted that there is no parking available specifically for the restaurant and we had to park a little way up the road, in front of a closed shop.

Going in the front door of Dawat, you are initially presented with a bar and some tables. Do not be put off by this as the restaurant area is well appointed, spacious and nicely lit. Our waiter was quietly attentive and presented the menu as soon as we sat down.

Having perused the menu for a few minutes, we decided to go for the Set Menu for 2. This gave us Poppadoms and chutney to start, then a further choice of two starters (chicken tikka and / or onion bhaji), Pilau rice, Naan bread and a vegetable curry. For our main, we could choose from the whole menu which we felt was much better than having a fixed choice which may not have suited one of us. This was then followed by a choice of either coffee or ice cream.

The food was excellent, portions generous and served piping hot.

The restaurant also offers a selection of drinks, alcoholic and not so, all at very reasonable prices. In fact, the whole meal was very good value for money and the complimentary After Eights when we paid the bill was a nice touch.

This review is based on a combination of two visits within a week. We enjoyed our first on-spec visit so much that we went back four days later, when the waiter recognised us and welcomed us back.

During both visits, there were not many other diners but takeaway trade was brisk.

Recommended.
