A Taste Adventure

I absolutely love the lunch buffet served at this establishment! It is not expansive like traditional buffets are but what they do have is amazing! Everything was fresh and hot for our entire visit.

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!!!!

Spent a few days in Roanoke. The Nawab is what you want if your looking for Indian. My wife and I have eaten Indian all over the world and Nawab hits the spot. Nice decor. Friendly staff as well. No expensive. Ate there 2 times in 2 day.

We had the opportunity to dine here for the first time. We ordered tandoori paneer (cheese) as an appetizer that was exquisite. For our main course we had dal makhani (lentils) , mutter paneer (peas and cheese), baingan bhartha (egg plant) and aloo gobi (cauliflower). Each entree was prepared perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant

Those who read my reviews know that I rarely use the word 'exceptional'. It is a word reserved for memorable cuisine that rises above the average and that simply leaves you willing to eat to satiation. Nawab is such a place. As vegans, my wife and I look hard to find restaurants that are both vegan friendly and tasty. We... More
