Good choice for Indian cuisine in Roanoke

Nawab is consistently a very good choice for Indian cuisine in Roanoke. They have a well stocked and fairly priced lunch buffet. Dinner tends to be a bit more expensive but worth the price. Last night we had the combination tikki masala with large portions of chicken, beef, and shrimp. They... read more

Went to Nawab on a Sunday. The food was excellent. Possibly one of the best Indian food I have had in the West. Very close to authentic, good service and good atmosphere. The restaurant is contemporary and does not have the look of the typical tired Indian restaurant look. The inside reflects the look of aspirational modern India. I would... More

My husband absolutely adores Indian food and had been wanting to take me for awhile. We chose to go for Sunday lunch because they have a lunch buffet 7 days a week. The buffet was a perfect chance to sample a variety of selections. I found a number of things that I really liked. I will definitely be back!

Lovely atmosphere, very nicely decorated. Parking alone the street and there are nearby lots. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. Dinner was wonderful and everything is cooked from scratch - you can choose mild, medium or hot. We were surprised with the perfectly sized dish of an absolutely incredible chocolate mousse for dessert. We had a nice conversation with... More

We love Indian food and try to eat it when we visit a new city. We have only eaten at Nawab about half a dozen times, but it is by far our favorite. It may not be completely authentic, but the flavors are wonderful. We love the spinach with panner and all of the curries are good. Well worth the... More

While visiting Roanoke for a long Parent's weekend, my family and I stopped in to have dinner at Nawab Indian Cuisine. There are many choices for people window shopping for dinner in downtown Roanoke. Because of the witching hour of growling stomachs, naturally, tension is heightened. We chose to have Indian, on a whim. The evening was brisk and the... More

stopped in for lunch - food was very well prepared - Indian is our favorite so we know it pretty well and this was great quality - large portions so we split a Dal dish that had just the correct seasoning for medium hot - nice atmosphere - for once a place that wasn't showing Bollywood on a big screen...

Always delicious food with excellent service! A perfect downtown location. Great for a fancy dinner, or a quick business lunch.

I eat here at least once a week for lunch and can't put into words how good it is!!!! The buffet to go is priced by weight and is priced very well. I can usually get two meals from one to-go box for $9/$10. For dinner, don't forget to try a cold Indian beer with your meal, it pairs wonderfully!!!!
