Good food in reasonable price.

There is a gingerly taste in the biryani ,not very sure influenced by which part of India ,but I liked it.

We went there to eat lunch buffet as it was very close to the beach and we were so hungry. The lunch buffet charges are normal but we didn't find variety of food in buffet compared to other Indian restaurants. Service was average. Most of the time, the staff was taking so much time to refill the counter. Very less... More

V went there for lunch. The atmosphere was pretty good. It was buffet and I must say that the only thing we liked having was vegetable makhani n naan. Rest everything was poor. Especially the chicken fry n curry was disappointing. Rice kheer was super cold that v couldn't enjoy its taste. Their service was average. As an Indian am... More

Worst place; service and food awful; if you go to India, you'll find a night and day difference. If anyone rates this as good, I question their standards

I've been craving Indian food for a while now so that might indicate that my standards might not have been as high as they could have been. I was actually on my way to another restaurant when this place caught my eye. The exterior actually has quite a bit of curb appeal considering the relatively sad state of the Military... More

Inexpensive way to get your Indian fare craving fixed. Fast, great grilled chicken and Indian vegetarian dishes. I always love their cucumber and tomato salad. Happy tummy!

Nawab is located in an unassuming small strip mall on the midst of shopping chaos in Virginia Beach. All sensory aspects of this restaurant are pleasing. The menu has everything I could ask for. The music and decor were soothing. The service was friendly but not intrusive. The heat scale question - 1 to 5 - was accurate. We were... More

Just finished up a delicious dinner, take-out however, from Nawab. Got FIVE entrees and shared them between the members of my family. Got a bunch of chicken dishes, all +2 spicy, all equally different and delicious. Can't remember the name of the dish but LOVED whichever was cooked with coconut and fruits, unreal. We can't wait to go back and... More

This gem of a restaurant is hidden in a nondescript exterior, but inside, has elegant decor and friendly atmosphere. The service was good. We had vegetable korma, assorted bread, and pakora. The meal was excellent, and the portions were large enough to split. I would advise ordering family-style. A truly excellent experience. We will be back many times.
