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!!

I love Nawab's wonderful selection of vegetarian and vegan options. All of the bread and rice dishes are excellent (the paratha is great). They have a host of vegetarian selections - I particularly like the palak paneer, dal makhni, allo gobhi, and bhindi masala. The samosa appetizer is very good too. Something for everyone!

I am not normally a fan of buffets.... Nawab's lunch buffet is amazing!! It is fresh, clean, and the mquality lunch for less than menu always changes.... The restaurant is always full. The buffet is constantly refreshed with hot and fresh food! High quality lunch for less than $10... Enjoy!! PS Dinners are sit-down and wonderful!!!

Used to be my favorite restaurant. Now, there are all new people working there. The menu is the same, but the food is not as good. It is still okay taste-wise, but is no longer worth the price. Also, the service was terrible. I won't be going back, and will be exploring other options.

Located close to the Holiday Inn Express - ambience is average Indian restaurant. They play fast bhangra music during dinner, whihc is unusual as most places prefer slow classical stuff. I ordered the seafood platter. after a 15 minute wait, first they brought something i did not order. I realised it after i had taken a bite - they apologised... More

This place was a real find for us. My colleagues and I were visiting Winston-Salem and in the mood for Indian. We found the listing for this place on TripAdvisor and, once again, the TA faithful did not let us down. We were very happy with our experience. The restaurant was located in a nice little plaza. The interior struck... More

Nestled in an upscale small shopping off Stratford Road Nawab is known for its luncheon buffet. The offerings are varied and change daily. There are many choices for a vegetarian. The restaurant is elegant with tablecloths and fresh flowers in artsy vases on the tables. Service is very good.
