Evoking the rich traditions of Indian dining with a bold and innovative twist, Daawat, meaning ‘Indian Feast,’ brings an exciting concept to the Strand Palace Hotel. Offering a cosmopolitan backdrop, Daawat has won critical acclaim by the London Metro.

Keralan head chef Asharaff Valappil’s menu merges his passion for regional home-cooking with classic fine dining twists, cooking with 3 tandoor ovens. Dishes on the Daawat menu are crafted using traditional spices from across India, headed by the signature curries or biryani, and accompanied by steaming-hot homemade naan breads. Express thalis and the light bites lunch menu are popular with West End diners.

An impressive bar stock at Daawat on the Strand includes ice-cool Indian beers, fine world wines and an eclectic mix of fruity cocktails. Try afternoon tea in the lounge bar, or for an unusual indulgence, there's Daawat's authentic-inspired Indian afternoon tea.

Found at the Strand Palace Hotel on Burleigh Street, Daawat restaurant in London offers a stunning interpretation of authentic Indian dining. Covent Garden or Charing Cross Tube stations are both a 6-minute walk away.

    I booked the afternoon tea experience about an month before Mother's Day. It was a treat for my mum along with my sisters. I choose Daawat afternoon tea as it has a Indian twist to accommodate all of us. Mum is vegetarian so her dishes were kept separate from the meat. They had a good selection of dishes and mum loved her masala tea. The restaurant is spacious and Moe who was our waiter was very helpful and made sure mum was ok throughout her time there. As it was Mother's Day after we finished our tea mum was served an lovely chocolate mousse cake which was a nice surprise and as we left she was handed over an Mother's Day card with a voucher to use at our next visit. Overall it was a lovely experience and I would definitely go back
