Ram has more than 30 years of experience working in 5 Star hotels and restaurants around the globe in locations like New Delhi, Kenya and Dubai along with restaurants in Ireland. And he is assuring his Longford customers of excellent service and top class cuisine.

“At Dawat we pride ourselves on the ability to offer our customers delicious and authentic Indian food, created to the highest standards. Every single meal we make is unique. We guarantee a magical treat in every bite and that you won’t be disappointed,” explained Ram.

Ram is very excited about the opening of the new Longford restaurant. “It is the second Dawat Indian Restaurant as we also have a restaurant in Claremorris, Co Mayo. 

“The people of Claremorris have been exceptionally supportive of us and thankfully we are very busy and we are hoping the Longford restaurant will be just as successful.”

Dawat's menu has been specially designed to cater for the Irish market and is full of rich flavours and contains delightful combinations of a variety of chicken, meat and vegetable dishes all cooked with freshly ground spices and ingredients all prepared to the highest standards.

And Ram says that if a customer wishes to have a dish that may not be on the menu, that he can cater for their request.
