Daawat Indian Restaurant

Recently featured in the 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.”


Daawat Indian Restaurant has a bright red entrance on Burleigh St, as well as direct access through the main hotel foyer.

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.’
