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

I was having a business dinner in Dar and wonder where to take my colleagues and client. Nawabi Khana ended up being intelligent guess. The ambience was good and the food was great! I will definitely come again

If you live on the peninsula and don't want to get out, you will settle with mediocre indian food. I suggest you venture to town and try some real authentic Indian food. This place is dull, and food doesn't do Indian food justice.

Really enjoyed my meal here. Excellent paneer masala, although my partner did not enjoy her lamb rogan josh as much ( somewhat burnt). Liked the venue and location of the restaurant.

It was a nice experiance here at Nawabi when my short 4 day visit at Tanzania. We had Indian dinner and which tastes even better which available in India !. Cost is at par with similar restaurant and the service was good. If you like indian food and been to dar-E-salam. please visit for a good indian experiance !!!

I have regularly been going to Nawabi Khana but the last time on 30th Jan was horrible. It seems they are on cost cutting drive and we had to really look for people to serve us. The food quality has also deteriorated. I was personally very disappointed and would not prefer to go again
