I've been many times, but mostly several years ago before Taaza opened. The food is okay, but nothing special: typical Indian buffet for lunch and decent food for dinner. Service is mediocre. I went earlier this year, first time in about two years, and they have redecorated in colors that make eating very unpleasant. The walls are now bright yellow... More

I love Indian food even more after coming to this restaurant. The sleek decor, the delicious food, and the outstanding service make this restaurant a must if you're in downtown Roanoke. Our waiter even hooked us up with a free dessert and it was probably the best dish we tried all night. This is an experience that you don't want... More

Finally my search of Indian food in states after three months took me here in Roanoke. Nawab is located in downtown Roanoke.

I liked chilly chicken the most but at the pther hand tandoori chicken... More

After a very long day driving the Blue Ridge Parkway we dropped our bags at the hotel and started looking for food. A search found Nawab in the heart of a lively restaurant area in Roanoke. The food was absolutely delicious, with exactly the requested amount of heat. I loved the Akbari naan with cocoanut and cherries. The biryani was... More

Great, modern environment in the heart of downtown, with friendly service. But, best of all, the food is delicious! Lunch offers a buffet with fresh, authentic Indian food. Dinner offers something from their menu. Everything is wonderful and the service is great!

After a long trek through the Blue Ridge, we came to this restaurant and were not disappointed. Saag paneer and the chicken biryani were seasoned just right with a hint of hot spices" just enough. The bread was fabulous, especially the bread with the coconut in it. Very yummy. The service was attentive and with a smile. These people like... More

Nawab offers authentic and delicious Indian cuisine in the heart of downtown Roanoke... it's one of our favorite places to eat in Roanoke! The service isn't always consistent, but the great quality of the food makes up for anything else that may be lacking. Highly recommended!

Very good curry goat. Our server stopped and told us about goat and how you can get it in India. Felt like story time. Really cool.

Great place, great food, great service...affordable. My husband, having travelled all over India on business, knows authentic Indian cuisine, and is very wary of Indian food outside of India. I nevertheless convinced him to stop in at the Nawab, and what a stroke of luck. The food is actually authentic and delicious. Stop in, it is a great place.
