    Lovely spicy food, great staff. Enjoyable night out. We wanted to repay a restaurant in our local community for the generosity they showed by providing free meals to those in need during the covid lockdown. Thank you!

    If you are looking for an intimate night out away from the kids this is not the place for you. We booked here thinking we would try a new place on a rare night out without children. The food was lovely however we did have to wait on our rice while our mains and naan got cold, even after I reminded them we had ordered rice. The biggest disappointment was the very large playpen filled with up to 10 children in the middle of the restaurant, we were seated right near the entrance and had children running in and out our entire time we were there, not really the childless evening we had envisioned. The restaurant is quite large but there was very few seating. Great for families, not for a quiet intimate dinner.

    It was my first visit tonight to Dawat The Invitation, Indian cuisine. We received a warm welcome and very good service. We enjoyed the usual pampadams with mint sauce as we made our menu choices. The meal choices with naans and mango lassies made for a banquet of delicious food. Dawat is a very good venue for a family dinner. This family enjoyed it and we will return.

    Lovely authentic food. Delightful lady who served us. Will be a regular from now on. The naan bread, we had garlic and cheese, was a delight. Thank you for a lovely meal.

    This was the best Indian food I have ever eaten. I maybe I could find something better in India, but when the food is this good, who cares whether or not you need to find something better.

    Excellent food and service. The restaurant is big with lots of tables, most of which were empty (it was 6pm+). They also have an enclosed play area for kids. They should advertise more. It was only that someone mentioned that they had had a good take away from there that we found out about it and decided to try it. I’d encourage people to check it out. Definitely another good eating option on the eastern shore.

    The food was great. Would have to be the best Indian fare I have had for a long time and good value for money. The service was very good.

    This was my first time here. Although there was a large group booking who must have ordered before us, it took over an hour for our food to come out (even a simple starter like samosas!). We purposely booked at 6pm so we could feed the kids and have them home and in bed at 7:30, but mains didn’t turn up until 7:45. We nearly asked them to be packed as takeaways. Another table of two left without food and didn’t bother finishing wine. The background music at the start was instrumental and normal volume but soon turned into loud pop/ club music and you couldn’t hear yourself talk. I asked them to turn it down and after 15 minutes and me asking a second time, I finally turned off the speaker. It was absurdly loud and we had a sleeping baby in a stroller (that wasn’t staying asleep). The food was tasty once it arrived and they were apologetic about the delay. I am willing to order takeaway but will never be dining in again! It was not a great experience.
