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.

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

The restaurant is very elegant and simple, the service is very good and of course the food is one of the best seasoning food I've eaten.

This restaurant is in downtown Roanoke, and is easily accessible by car or foot. The food is great. I ordered the Goat Dhanshak, which is a spicy goat stew served over jasmin rice. I also ordered the garlic naan bread and raita, a condiment made with yogurt, mint, and spices. Everything was great. Other people were eating the chicken tikka,... More

We had never had much experience with Indian food so we decided to give it a try. It was amazing. We had excellent service as well. Will definitely be dining here again asap. A great, fun find for dinner in Roanoke!

I shared dinner with a friend. The vegetable appetizer sampler was a delight. Our entrees were perfectly presented and a joy to eat. Service was excellent and we learned a little of the language from our host.

We had the Sunday buffet and were absolutely blown away. Every single dish -- and my husband tried about every single one -- was excellent, which is surprising for a buffet. I adore Indian cuisine, and yet Nawab's was able to surprise me. The service was excellent, every employee friendly. The food -- simply superb.
