Located at the Strand Palace Hotel, on the Strand, diners can access this Indian restaurant either through the hotel foyer or by its own, separate entrance on Burleigh Street – just look for the big red awning.
The head chef here hails from Kerala, so expect dishes from India's south to be well-represented, alongside options from other regions as well as classic curry house staples. That means a menu that includes lamb samosa, chicken tikka, seabass varuval, various biryani and tandoori salmon with dill, ginger, yoghurt, lime and grape chutney.
Pre-theatre menus, thali lunches, an Indian afternoon tea and seasonal specials also feature.

Afternoon tea here - much more interesting than the standard British fayre. 3 layers of slightly spiced finger food plus some lovely squelchy Indian focused treats and then more tradiional fruit tarts and (slightly dry) scones with jam and cream took nearly 3 hours to munch through. Lovely surroundings, charming staff
Had dinner here post-cocktails at the Gin Palace bar, also in the Strand Palace. There were some interesting and imaginative items on the menu that I haven't seen elsewhere, as well as the familiar dishes. All very tasty and really excellent value for such a central London theatreland location.
Went to Dawaat after a cocktail at the Gin Palace- perfect combination! The first time that I have truly "tasted" Indian food rather than the spices that usually smother it. I am not a very hot/spicy curry fan, so really appreciated the more subtle flavours to come through. Spoilt for choice here- coming back.
Went for a lovely dinner at Daawat with my husband, a real curry fan, and he loved it! I chose Pork Vindaloo and he had a lamb dish called Laal Maans - both were amazing. Definitely coming back.
