Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the only Indian restaurant in Maleny - and it's a good spot if you are feeling the cold. The food is good, the service is friendly, the prices are reasonable and BYO for $3 per glass is a plus!

I acquired my love of Indian food in the 1950s. I was delighted to find the Daawat Indian Cuisine restraunt met my hopes for exceptional meals. It is well worth the 30 minute drive to eat there.

Due to the wet weather, the place was quiet and we were the only patrons, which was great because the new manager (who took over just 3 months ago) chatted to us and we really enjoyed his conversation. He assured us their food is fresh...every day. Nothing is kept overnight. They use no preservatives or artificial flavorings or colorings. The menu is extensive. We ordered Chicken Vindaloo, a delicious Lamb dish, and Indian Salad. Service was efficient and the food was superb. We will definitely go back. Not sure why this site shows a Warner address, but this place was at UNIT 4 45 MAPLE STREET, MALENY Queensland 4552 They open for lunch until 2pm, then close and reopen for dinner at 4pmMore

This is a welcoming mum and dad run restaurant that prides itself on the quality of the cooking. I enjoyed one of their specialties - goat curry. It brought back memories of delicious meals in Sri Lanka many years ago. But be aware, this is...not a fast-food restaurant, your meal will be cooked properly, not popped into a microwave.More

Cresting the hill into Maleny, I endeavoured to find something warm and tasty, Christmas Eve 2023.. Call it a Christmas miracle, but - wow! I was welcomed beautifully as a mid-evening walk-in to Daawat Maleny, and treated to the most fresh and yummy butter chicken......well.. ever! Add to this a perfect mango lassi and, well. How beautifully unexpected. Thank you🙏More

I believe this restaurant has changed hands. The food tonight was pitiful, sauce looked and tasted like it was from a bottle, not from an actual spice mix. Watery and no flavor. Very disappointing considering the price of a curry is not cheap at around...$23.More

Came here in November 2022 for my hubby's birthday. We both love Indian so discovering this little gem in the wonderful Maleny was a treat! The food is absolutely delicious (we had Butter Chicken and Vindaloo) and were impressed at the wide selection of foods...and naans (definitely recommend the chilli naan for spice lovers). The staff was so lovely (my favourite was a question if we wanted Indian spicy or Aussie-spicy...always Indian spicy for me). This little authentic place leaves little to desire. Huge recommendations.More

Tables were not cleared after patrons left. We were kept waiting nearly an hour before our order being taken. Beef Rogan Josh and Prawn Sagagwala presented in a bowl of ‘slop’ rather than sauce. With the sense the sauce had been bulk made/and reheated with...either meat or prawns thrown in rather than cooked in fresh spices.More

Great takeaway and friendly staff. Wide range of choices and very authentic. Decor could do with an update - but can't detract from the quality of food.

Maleny is a charming small town, quaint and picturesque. Who would have thought we would find a superb Indian restaurant? A BYO eatery, we had the goat curry, rice and the best Palak Paneer I have tasted in years. Matched by the superb garlic and...cheese naan. Daawat is a culinary gem.More
