“Attawa” is a small village rooted in the heart of North India known for its strong family ties and love for food. Our heritage trails back to here and our sacred family recipes have been passed down for great generations. We want to bring the taste of Punjab to the heart/streets of London.

Enjoyable meal, good sized portions, loved the lamb biryani. The samoas were good sized, not remotely greasy but did lack flavour but overall good meal and we will be back. Noticeable that doing a roaring take away trade as well. Good social distancing

A friend & I were very excited to try Attawa, and we weren’t disappointed! The food & service were absolutely faultless! I loved the decor of the restaurant too. As a punjabi myself I can vouch that the gol guppa’s were fab!

Fantastic food - would highly recommend the lamb chops. The Palak Papdi Chaat (vegan)
on the sharing plates list was actually the best dish of the night. Great cocktails and nice wine list. Staff were super friendly/helpful and had great recommendations. Such a nice touch that they "brand" the naan bread.

Complete lack of service - we were left for half an hour without being offered so much as a drink, even after trying to get the staff's attention several times. Got up to leave and the staff didn't bat an eye, or attempt to contact us afterwards.

A great new restaurant, easily the tastiest "Indian" I have had in London. Two of our party had the dhal = superb.

Vegetarian aubergine was OK, more flavour and more quantity were needed.

Positively I will go back again and Dalston does need a goof Indian outlet.

Negatively. I thought the food was too expensive. A curry and rice reaching £15.00.

For a family, that's high!

Best luck

The best homemade Indian (Punjabi) food that I have had in London. And I am Punjabi hence I can say this! a MUST TRY for all indian food fans. Even if you're not a fan, you'll be crazy to not try this place.

A good Indian restaurant in Dalston was very much needed before Attawa came along and we had an absolutely delightful experience during our first visit. The food was excellent (Punjabi food is my personal fave so maybe I'm biased!), the servers were very professional and friendly, and decor/ambience was one of the best I've seen in London.

What I loved most about Attawa was that they took special care to keep nuts out of the kitchen as much as possible, which was the first in any restaurant I've ever encountered! My partner is allergic to nuts and this was the most exemplary way a restaurant could have approached this issue.
