Chef Asharaf Valappil wins Best Chef at the Curry Life Awards 2016
We are so proud of our Head Chef Asharaf Valappil who has won Best Chef at the Curry Life Awards 2016.
Daawat also recently featured in London Metro, Samantha Rae writes:
“The Chilli Mili Chicken Wings were not only tasty, they also cleared my sinuses – a herd of elephants in Africa thought I was sending them a mating call. My lamb biryani was sealed over with pastry and breaking into it was as satisfying as puncturing the seal on a tube of Pringles. The peshwari naan – and I class myself as a connoisseur of nothing, if not a peshwari naan – was beautiful. There’s pork on the menu – which you may not find in every Indian restaurant, and the staff are lovely. It’s in easy distance of Charing Cross, and well worth dropping in before catching a train home.”
Keralan Head Chef, Asharaf Valappil, cooks authentic Indian cuisine using three tandoor ovens. The whole team invites you to enjoy their ‘Daawat’ experience, meaning ‘Indian Feast.’
Asharaf combines his passion for regional home-cooking with original fine dining twists, using traditional spices from all across India. Our dinner menu includes signature curry dishes Grandma Kodi Kura and Seabass Varuval. For classic curry enthusiasts you’ll also find our take on the popular Chicken Tikka Massala and Lamb Biriyani.
