Love the food here and usually all is satisfactory. However, after our meal we were going to order after dinner drinks but our waitress was nowhere to be found. After approx 15 minutes, we asked another waitress is she could locate our waitress. Finally, our waitress appeared but by that time it was too late to order our drinks. So, we lost out and so did Dawett.

We were a party of 11. Which is not easy on the wait staff and the kitchen. They all did a wonderful job. It was a fun evening

This was the first time I've held a business meeting over lunch at Dawetts. I recommend it now both for great dinners and business lunches.

Dawett is one of my very favourite restaurants in town. It was my husband and my first date and the place we had our wedding rehearsal dinner. The manager/owner knows us by name and always makes sure we are enjoying ourselves. The staff is wonderful and very prompt. The food is unbelievable as is the rice and fresh naan bread. The menu is very large with a huge variety of different dishes. We will always be regulars at Dawett - I cant say enough good things!

Love this place. Wish I could go more often. By far the best Indian restaurant in Kelowna if not the best overall restaurant.

Had to wait over an hour before food arrived. Our order was lost in the line up. Had another event to attend so took away the pleasure of a leisurely dinning experience.

Dawett is without a doubt my favourite restaurant in Kelowna. The food is exceptional, always hot and fresh and so full of flavour. I’ve never had a meal there that hasn’t been rave-worthy. However, I literally cringe when I walk in and see that the male server (I think there is only one) is going to be serving my table. He is intrusive and so incredibly pushy about up-selling - extra drinks, more expensive dishes instead of less expensive, etc. I don’t mind being given suggestions but he makes me so uncomfortable that I think if I saw he was my server again I would leave and come back later. This meal was like all the others - absolutely delicious. We had the fish tikka, which came with big perfectly cooked chunks of fish, and the eggplant bhartha, which was among the best I’ve ever had. Our server was pushy about one of our guests ordering more beer, pushy about us ordering the vegetable biriyani instead of the plain rice we asked for, and rude when the other guests declined drinks other than water. He then ignored us for the rest of the meal, not bringing water by or asking how things were. Please please sort out your service issues and I would eat here everyday!!!

The food seems different since the last time we were there in February. Chicken more fatty. Not as nice quality.

Very tasty, nicely spiced but not too hot. We had the butter chicken, onion kulcha naan, a lamb dish and fish vindaloo as well as a tandoori mixed grill. Everything was top class, my son took home the remains with the some extra naan, he said it was still delicious the next day for breakfast.

My friend and I were so excited to try Dawett as we love Indian food. The veggie pakoras were decent but all different temperatures, the garlic and basil naan was crunchy and the basil was clearly out of a dried shaker. The chicken in the tikka masala had little shards of bone and chunks cartilage in it. Completely turned us off.

I was disappointed and won’t be going back.

Restaurant didn’t register the open table reservation. We got the best table in the restaurant anyway. I always enjoyed the meals there, but that night, the appetizers (veggie pakora) were a little dry and mealy in texture.

The food was fine. The butter chicken tasted odd though. The service wasn’t great but to be fair I think they were short of staff because it was a holiday.

I can't understand how anybody could complain about this fine establishment. The food is 5 star and the service is excellent. I don't live around here so I can only visit a few times a year but every dining experience has been perfect. The best Indian food in Kelowna.

We had the dinner for two and were pleased with all dishes except the dal. It tasted completely off, definitely old and probably spoiled. When the waitress asked if everything was good, we were glad to report that everything was delicious, except for the dal. Five minutes later the manager came to the table asking what was wrong. When we told her that the dal tasted terrible she had the nerve to tell us that we did not know what dal was supposed to taste like and that no one had ever complained about it so it could not be as we described it. I was insulted at her comment and would not ever return to such a restaurant, it’s a shame since the other dishes were delicious.

Great choice if you're downtown Kelowna. I love the tandoori specialties, but I've had the curries too and they're perfect also. They have draft beer, which is nice with Indian food and have a small wine list too. Very friendly, good service!

Great experience every time I go for dinner. It seems the online bookings have taken them by surprise as the Valentine's bookings online overlapped with what they had by phone and so there was some confusion as to who got the tables. They sorted it out though as fast as they could and everyone was happy. Love this restaurant, highly recommended!

My husband and I were having a lovely time and had finished our meal which was delicious and the service excellent as well. We had half a glass of wine each and the owner came over and told us that there was a line up of people waiting. We were horrified. At the most we would have been a few more minutes at best.
We had made a reservation for our dinner, we were there a little more than an hour.
I felt he was incredibly out of line and very rude. I did take him aside and let him know that this is not the type of behaviour he should be conveying to his patrons.
I’m not sure I would go back.
The food and service was good. We did wait awhile for our food but didn’t mind or complain that they should hurry up.
Not a nice experience.

We had just finished our meal and were chatting when the manager asked us to leave as they had people waiting for the table. The total time we were in the restaurant was one hour and fifteen minutes. If you are looking for fast food not bad,if you want a relaxing dinner with friends this is not the place, very rushed. We won’t go back .

Went at New Year's eve. Service was fast and friendly even though it was busy. Food is the best Indian food we have had for ages. Prices are excellent and the menu has everything you might want including a range (albeit small) of draft beers. This will be a regular.
