Best service in town and so accommodating - table for 8 - no problem and no waiting. Can't believe there is a line out the door every time we go because the food is so delicious. But, we have always been seated right away and there isn't a long wait to get the food. We do take out here sometimes... More

Every once in a while I get bored with normal food. That is when I go here. Indian cuisine is not really exotic anymore, but it is very hard to beat when you are looking for interesting tastes, and Nawab does it very well. I have been for both lunch and dinner, and both were excellent. The lunch buffet is... More

Took a lebanese auditor here on her last day of training with me. The placed was packed on a Thursday during the lunch buffet. We didn't mind the short wait because the food was hot and flavorful. We ate abundantly but also healthy. The service was pretty poor but the food still gets the place 5 stars. I had the... More

We got there as they opened at 5 pm after visiting the Mariner museum nearby. I reserved via open table so we were seated right away. Service was good very attentive and I think it was the owner or manager who came by to see if we liked the cuisine . We ordered butter chicken which was not on the... More

In a city of restaurants with too few vegetables and too much oil & fat, Nawab was a find. Located in a modest shopping strip, the restaurant is well-appointed and suitable for older children and adults (it's friendly, but not really a place for young ones). Herbs are fresh and used well. Spices are fragrant, with the "mild" retaining the... More

A great easy to reach location, very good room ambience, good space for privacy, very friendly, efficient and respectful service, and an excellent menu slightly spoiled by it being served on cold plates.

A lovely dining room, great for a quiet dinner or a big celebration. The food is among the best Indian food I've had anywhere. The curries and Tikka dishes are really rich and flavorful. I also like the appetizer selection plate on the dinner menu. They cater to any taste in spiciness. They have a 1-5 scale (2 is still... More

The food here is really good! Tons of bold flavor! My favorite lunch buffet if I'm looking to treat myself! Dinners are very nice as well. Super friendly staff!
