“Good food, but better can be had elsewhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

A group of us tried their lunch buffet today. The food was good, but not spectacular. Price was on the high end for a buffet. I prefer the Mango Shiva for a better dining experience for a comparable price.

“Great food, prices, and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

We stopped here on a Friday night...the Restaraunt was not very busy, but I don't know why...the food was great (Fish Pakroa...Yummy!), prices were reasonable and the service was really good, one the owners was our server. They know the menu well, and we were able to explain, that our experience at Indian Cuisine was limited, and she walked us through the menu and we enjoyed everything she suggested!

“Last Meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Excellent food, great service in very pleasant surroundings. A really good end to what had been a memorable trip throughout

Would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys Indian (Bengal) cuisine

“Worth Missing--Overpriced for average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

Some of my friends did a group meal at Nawab as its close to all our work offices. I had never eaten their before. The food is average--vegetarian selection is poor, the chicken dishes were decent, but other meats were poor. Desserts were stale. Food was average but overpriced. Since there are so many other Indian restaurants in Calgary go elsewhere if you have a choice. Place is clean but service was poor.

“Good flavor , long service and pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

I had veggy dishes and they where tasty however for the quality level the price is steep and that would be the main reason why I wouldn't go back. 2 samosa, 2 veggy dish 1 naan 1 rice for about 45.00$.

We where only 5 in the restaurant and I thought it was very long for the service. They probably cook and serve themselves?
