My whole family loves to come to the buffet here. Everything is always good, naan, fried pakoras, kebab, and tandori chicken are always there. Then there is a beef, chicken, and several vegetable dishes. There is salad, orange wedges, and several other cold dishes. Nice way to try some new dishes. My fav is meatball masala which is there when... More

Quite simply the best Indian food in the area. Opens at noon, full by 12:30. I try to not visit more than three Sundays per month but it is difficult to stay away. The food is great, the service excellent, the staff is very attentive and the decor is lovely

Worst restaurant ever I have visited, I knew this before but based on the recent feedback just thought of trying, oh man.... Disaster.... Never visit Nawab Not sure how they are having good reviews, might be non indians who haven't tasted Indian Food might have provided the rating. I am down with Food Poison.

Had the Lamb Vindaloo. They offer it in a variety of spices. I got the "Indian Hot". It was tasty and spicy but not too hot. My wife got a milder chicken dish. We also got an order of the garlic naan. Both of us loved the food. The atmosphere is a bit dark with soft music. Very nice for... More

I visited Nawab based on Tripadvisor reviews. It was past 8 o'clock after a long working day, and this restaurant was very similar to what I was hoping for. A large dining room with boths on each side, low lights, wait staff that is respectful and non intrusive, a mix of old fashioned style and neighborood feel. The lamb dish... More

The buffet at lunch is a great way to sample different Indian food if you are a new comer to this cuisine. Dinner is a bit more expensive but very high in quality.

Pros: Large sitting area Choice between Illuminated area to a dimmer area Service was fast Hostess was helpful and knowledgeable Cons: Some food was definitely frozen before getting served. For the authentic Indian desserts, I was disappointed. On explaining that to the hostess, she went defensive rather than accepting or offering any alternative food compensation etc. I have experienced many... More

Food is very bland with no flavors .No smile on the waitress.If you order a curry they will dilute the tomato puree or paste put salt and boiled vegetables or chicken.Thats What you will be served. Not at all worth going there. Instead eat bread and fill your stomach.

The buffet was $8.95 and my 2 year old ate for free. There were 5 main dishes and an assortment of vegetables. I would return.
