Well finding indian/ Pakistani food while away from home is always a treat. We order Cheese Nan, Palak Makhani and Chicken Masala and all of them were tasted just like back home. They have a huge menu and i had two meals there; both of them were up to the par. I would say its a must go; if you... More

This was my second visit and I was hoping the food would be as good as the first time. The meal started well with some papadoms and tamarind and coconut chutneys. After ordering we did have to complain about the long wait for the main course. The fish in coconut was good as well as the Jeera rice. However the... More

I was feeling like an Indian meal not too far from where I live and decided to try Nawabi Khana. The restaurant is spacious and the decor pleasant. The staff all wear Indian clothes and we're welcoming and friendly. The background Kenny G music was quiet enough not to drown conversation. The service was very good and my meal arrived... More

Not gauging the pulse of the guests. A big hall with music and the usual chat makes a mess of the ambience - into an otherwise good food!

I took my husband to this restaurant as I had fond memories of it from the last time I was in Dar. The restaurant was exactly as I remembered it from 8 years ago and the food was just as good as I remembered it to be as well. The server we had was very friendly but did not know... More

I've been here a couple of times and had takeaway a couple more. It's really great food, good service and a decent atmosphere. The flavors or each dish are really distinct. Excellent vegetarian dishes, especially the paneer!

Nawabi Khaana has good service. Located slightly far away near Oysterbay access is a bit of an issue. The food is strictly average although it has got a good name in Dar es Salaam. The starters could be better but the main course is definitely good. No sweet dishes are served. The biggest problem is that the food is over... More

Good Indian restaurant in Tanzania serving tasty Indian fare. The staff is clad in traditional Indian clothing, they have a large swing in one corner and very Indian ambience, with classical background music. Quantity is a bit less compared to the price, but the taste is delectable. We had veg, since our hosts are vegetarian, but I am sure the... More
