    " We won't be returning unfortunately. We felt that there wasn't much variety to their menu and quite expensive if full price. The popadoms were like packet ones and no onion salad to have with them. Drinks were quite overpriced too. Lovely looking restaurant tho...very clean looking and nice and cool. He staff could have been a bit friendlier. The gentleman in the suit was very helpful but general waiters not. I don't recommend . "

    I would have to say the standard of food and service was great, I must admit to be a complainer as my standard of dinning is quite fussy but I must confess dinning at this restaurant was satisfying and a good standard. Food was delious the restaurant was tastefully decorated and clean. 8/10. I would go back and would definitely recommend it. My reason for 8/10 was the bill given to me was incorrect apart from this all good :-) "

    Amazing food. Staff were friendly but just delivered an exceptionally slow service. Odd as it was a week night with few tables filled, the service should have been easy.

    It was very easy to use two cards for our large group.

    I recommend the Daawat, but leave yourself with plenty of time! "

    More authentic cooking style and ingredients than standard british curry house. With 50% discount its fantastic value and a real hidden gem for food and value. Atmosphere and service below par...but it is part of a hotel and to be honest its a blessing in disguise coz if service and atmosphere improved it would be lot busier restaurant and no doubt they woulf stop tastecard 50% discount. So guys keep up the poor service and atmosphere. Indian foos is all about taste and price. "
