Good enough food, but again with the overly expensive Indian food. Indian should NOT be expensive - it's the Mexican food of its subcontinent.

Nawab is a modest and smallish restaurant with pleasant decor. The food was very good, though I only tried some vegetarian dishes. The best part of the experience was the service. Everyone was very friendly, attentive but not overbearing. My meal cost about $25 not including tip for a soup, a couple entrees and a beer.

Decent food. Place has lost its ambience over time, needs renovation, new curtains, new seats. Parking is a problem.

For the luncheon buffet, there were at least a dozen entree dishes, in addition to the salad section. There were at least six vegetarian selections. The food was absolutely delicious. Great value for scrumptous food. I enjoyed the masala dishes, especially the channa masala (spicey garbanzo beans) and the chicken tikka masala. Great value for lunch - about $12. Desserts... More

I usually come here for their all you can eat lunch. The food is simple and consistently good, but the endless bread is superb~ There are usually salad, 2~3 kinds of veggie, 2~3 kinds of curry, 2~3 kinds of meat dishes, 2~3 kinds of deserts. The food is refreshing and not heavy at all.
