My daughter and I shared the Vegetable Pakora appetizer, Garlic Naan, Assorted Condiments and Fish Tikka (which comes with large bowl of rice and on a mixed veggie bed) and two Lassis (rose and strawberry) for $42...that was PLENTY of food...we could barely finish it all. Once again, the salmon was cooked perfectly! Staff are all pleasant and happy to... More

We enjoyed the lunch buffet on a weekday. A nice assortment of entrees were provided, which I understand from a regular are changed regularly, as well as salad items and desserts. Very good service.

We always come for the buffet, but tonight we came for dinner and really enjoyed it. We got the kebab appetizer and veg pakoras, paneer mahkni, chicken tikka masala, veg korma, and chicken and shrimp tandoori. Everything was delicious and we had leftovers to take home. Everyone really liked the shrimp. It was very quiet on a Sunday night, and... More

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.
