“Extremely underwhelming”

Maleny Daawat Indian Cuisine
Ranked #6 of 75 Restaurants in Maleny
Cuisines: Indian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 November 2022 via mobile

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.

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.

Very tasty food - will be back! Service was excellent and fast. Really enjoyed the meal and the naan was super fresh and crispy!

Fish Madras: OK, sauce had no outstanding flavours. Not great, not bad.

Malai Kofta: croquettes already falling to bits on arrival, resulting in an unappetising pinkish slurry which was also alarmingly sweet for a main course. Excellent choice for the toothless or those with serious dental problems and/or a sugar dependency.

Kashmiri Naan: Overly thick dough, resulting in uncooked paste in the middle. Loaded with sugar, but very little evidence of other promised ingredients (dried fruit, coconut, etc) . Left most of it. A disaster.

Service was good, food very well priced, restaurant has pleasant atmosphere. Visited based on the reviews we read. Perhaps it was the head chef's night off, but these are not difficult dishes to make to a reasonable standard.
I have eaten Indian food extensively all over the world, and made it myself for many years,so I have plenty to compare it with.
Sorry, Daawat, this simply did not measure up on the night.
