Best Indian Lunch Buffet

This is Winston-Salem's best and most popular lunch buffet. Food was very good and very fresh, although the curry was not as spicy as I like. Service was quick collecting dishes as we finished. If your coming for lunch try to get there before noon to beat the crowd.

My wife and I get takeout here regularly. We do like to eat in at Nawab, particularly for weekend brunch. But life is hectic, and takeout is a good option. Service is fast (10-15 minutes). They pack the food nicely and portions are generous. They have a great menu and I haven't found anything I don't like.

I have eaten Indian food in the US and Europe and this is about average for the US, way below average for most of the rest. There are no complaints, but nothing to get excited about. I will admit that I have only been there for the lunch buffet, so the a la carte may be better, but from my... More

I recently met some friends at Nawab Indian Cuisine for lunch. I do not usually eat this type of food. I was amazed at how wonderful and economical the lunch buffet was. I tried a little of almost all the items. It was tasty and not very spicy. If you are in the Winston area please take time to visit... More

We went here for dinner tonight. I didn't know Nawab was so good. We had a great meal with great service. There were a dozen things on the menu that interested me.

Lunch buffet is always delicious, fresh and varied. Many if the items remain consistent each day, but they alter entrees and vegetable dishes. Glad to have this high quality Indian buffet in Winston Salem! Service is a bit inconsistent, sometimes attentive and other times non-existent.

Very disappointed lately with the quality of food. My $22.00 NON VEGETARIAN THALI dinner, now served in child sized portions. I ordered this to go and it was literally served in a three section plate with the largest section containing the rice and two drumsticks. The meat was also grisly and not fully cooked. :(

Nawab is by far the best Indian food restaurant in Winston Salem! I live in Scotland for 3 years and had the chance of dinning at a myriad of Indian food restaurant and I can say Nawab is quite competitive.

I don't even know where to begin. The dishes were spiced to perfection (not too strong nor too bland). The atmosphere was elegant and tasteful. The service was above and beyond amazing. I have to say, this was probably one of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had, and that's saying a huge deal. Super pleased!!
