My new favorite local Indian restaurant


is Dawat, a Morrisville place I tried for the first time earlier tonight.  Nestled in a small strip mall, Dawat is not particularly fancy, though it is quite nice inside.  Every dish I tried, though, ranked as high or higher than any other local Indian restaurant I've visited.

My main course, Lamb Lababdaar, which I asked them to prepare with a medium spicy level, proved to be a delicious and strongly flavored but not overpowering blend of spices, lamb, chicken, shrimp, spinach, and other vegetables.  I also sampled the lamb korma, which was easily the best I've ever tasted.  Both the garlic and the peshwari naan were excellent examples of their types.

Everyone else at the table also enjoyed their dishes, though we did learn that if you ask them to make a dish spicy, you should expect a very spicy meal indeed--something I consider completely fair.

If you're in the mood for a very good Indian dinner, head to Morrisville and visit Dawat.

Mark,
is Indian popular option in the US. Here in the UK it is now reckoned to be the most popular food ahead of the more traditional Fish and Chips.

I have no hard data, but based purely on anecdotal evidence I would say it is popular here but down the list from fast food, pizza, Mexican, and Chinese.

I pass it to and from work every day maybe I'll stop sometime.

I think it's worth a visit.
