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.

It is very difficult to find good Indian food in the US. However, Nawab is excellent, the food was perfect. I had the Lamb Vindaloo (Indian Hot), and for once it was the right heat, and the lamb was so tender. The Naan bread is delicious, especially the garlic naan. To top it all off they serve Kingfisher Beer, just... More

My husband and I are both lovers of Indian food and have traveled there for work, so know good Indian...with that said, this buffet was delicious! Lots of great choices and all wonderful and VERY reasonable. The décor was soothing and the staff was super friendly. Definitely on the list to go back!

First visit. Went for lunch. Seemed like most were going for lunch buffet. Order a couple small plates that sounded good. Generally good. Mulligatawny Soup very good flavor. Service was clumsy. Asked for iced tea three times, then was asked after I ordered my meal if I wanted something to drink. Communication challenge making for less than great experience.

We got lots of tandoori foods (fish, chicken, and vegetables) and some vegetable korma and and sides/breads. All of us were happy. Great bread and side samplers and plenty of food. All of it was wonderful. Our server didn't speak much English but she tried hard and I used a few Hindi words to make her more comfortable. We all... More

This modest restaurant located in a tiny strip mall in the Hilltop Area is well worth a visit. The food is authentic and beautifully cooked and presented. The service is personal and attentive. Recommendations from the staff were spot on. The restaurant is very clean and quiet which makes enjoyment of your dining companions front and center--rare in this age... More

Admittedly this is the first Indian restaurant I've ever been to so I don't have anything to compare it to but we loved it. I like the idea of a buffet because it allows me to try a bit of everything. The chicken methi and vegetable kormi was delicious! I was worried my kids wouldn't like it but they ate... More

I went to Nawab on Friday(7/25) afternoon around 1pm for their lunch buffet. I was pretty excited having heard nothing but good things about this restaurant. As I entered the restaurant I expected to be greeted by a hostess or server, this did not happen. As I entered the door my eyes ran over the sign that stated I should... More

Good Indian food is limited in VB, but Nawab delivers. Very quiet on a Sunday evening but good food and quick service.
