Since moving to Roanoke I have had a heck of a time finding a really good meal. I am so glad I happened upon Nawab! The service was excellent, the food was perfect, the rice was likely the best I have ever had.

Our group dined at Nawab on a summer Saturday evening and had a very nice meal at this restaurant. The service for our dining experience was excellent. Among the items we enjoyed were their tomato coconut bisque, which was tart and flavorful. For appetizers, we had samosas (homemade pastry with potatoes and peas) and chicken hyderabadi, which was very tasty.... More

Good food and service. Add few more authentic vegetarian selections. Atmosphere was okay. For natives, spice level can be upped.

The food was wonderful, the ambiance is sublime, and there is nothing not to love. Their menu includes rather unusual Indian food, and not just the usual Northeastern fare.

This is the best Indian food! From the lunch buffet, to the authentic naan bread, this is the real deal. Friendly servers, festive atmosphere, this place is #1 on the list anytime I'm in Roanoke.

I've been dining at Nawab for years and have never had a negative word about the place. The service is kind and quick. I usually dine there during their buffet hour because they always carry my favorites right out on the table like the chicken tikki masala and more. The one major thing that always has me going back is... More

I have eaten a lot of great Indian food in the Midwest and Nawaba was just as good and better than some. The buffet had less items than I am used to at Indian buffets but the choices were good. The Korma on the menu is great

A friend had recommended Nawab to me, and I'm grateful that she did. I've had good, bad and indifferent Indian good all around the country, and this is one of the two best I've dined at ... and the other, alas, is now defunct. It's an elegant room, the wait staff is prompt, extremely courteous and the quite helpful. Being... More

We have been to Nawab on several occasions. Only once was my entree not great. Just came back from there tonight - dinner was not fabulous, but it was very good. Service is always pleasant and the atmosphere is lovely. I would definitely recommend Nawab.

My wife and I had the lunch buffet today (Sunday). The lentil dish was tasty as was the Southern Indian chicken dish. The chicken biriyani was okay, but had little flavor - it needed some coriander or cardamom. The chai tea was pretty good - the temperature was perfect. However, it too was bland. It needed more ginger and cardamom.... More
