Dabbawalla, Summit, NJ

Has anyone been to Dabbawalla? I've seen some positive reviews but I don't know anyone who has actually eaten there. Trying to decide between there and Moghul in Iselin for dinner this Saturday.

  1. Maryelizabeth, if you go remember to post! We've been thinking about going but haven't had a chance yet. Read a very good review somewhere recently, wish I could remember where it was.

    1. Hi,

      A number of people I know including myself have eaten there and the food is excellent. I'd recommend it for sure!

      1. I thought Dabbawalla was going to be excellent considering the decor was the nicest I have yet to see from an Indian resteraunt. However, I wouldn't judge a book by its cover. The food was overpriced and the portions were small. We ordered a side of naan and they gave us three pieces to split between the two of us, what is one extra piece of naan, answer me that. Even though there were only four other couples in the place, service was extremely slow and one of the servers was unfriendly. I disliked the chicken tiki masala, I have had better, the chicken they used I also disliked. I wasn't given a straw, my water glass was empty, overall it wasn't a great experience. For the price and amount of people in the restaurant I thought I was going to have a pleasant time, I was wrong.
