I feasted on the saagwalla (?) with lamb. The flavoring was subtle and devine. There was a roasted, delicate light brown sauce that was slightly different from any other versions I have tried. My friend enjoyed lamb Rogan Josh. Again the sauce was the sauce was finely sliced. A tomato flavor that still allowed the spices to show off. The... More

We go to Nawab for lunch practically every time we go to Norfolk (about once a month). Everything in the buffet is good, and there must be at least ten dishes to choose from. The same family runs the Nawab in Williamsburg, which is just as good. And they presumably do the one in Newport News as well.

Nawab has an excellent selection of menu options. This location is is misleading, for some reason it looks like it is closed when it really is open. All of the food has that rich taste of India and they can always spice a plate up for you if you like it Indian hot. The food is reasonably priced and will... More

We were a group of 11 and each one of us picked a different dish and shared with each other. It was a pleasant surprise that we found all of the dishes quite delicious. The garlic naan was excellent as it came out hot and fresh. The service was great as well.

We were really impressed by the quality of food here - we got three dishes to share (eggplant, veg korma and veg curry) and they were all fabulous. Garlic naan was also good, as was the appetizer sampler. The waitress offered us various levels of spiciness, too. the cocktails were on the smaller size but overall we really enjoyed our... More

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
