Their Lamb Tikka Masala is wonderful. One bite of it in your mouth is akin to receiving a kiss from Vishnu himself.

Being a lover of Indian cuisine I looked forward to going to Nawab's. We ordered the dinner for two on the evening menu. It was delicious! Nawab's offers a lunch buffet; the next time I'm in Winston I'm going to make time to eat lunch there.

Staff is great, their food is even better. I've been here a few times for both take-out and dine-in. Their staff is always friendly and the food always tastes fresh and flavorful. I always order the chicken tikka masala...it's beyond delicious. the last time I was there, I ordered the carrot halwa w/mango ice cream--probably one of the best deserts... More

I grew up on Indian food. After moving to the US in 1997, I failed to find anywhere that had Indian food anything like it should be. Nawab Indian Cuisine changed all that. I went twice in one week with my wife. It's the first time that when I have asked for extremely super mega hot that that's what I... More

The lunch buffet is loaded with a large variety of high quality ethnic dishes. Dishes are frequently replenished so everything stays fresh and hot. There is also a nice salad bar. Service is super fast, so easy to get in and out during a lunch hour. The managers and wait staff are extremely friendly. An excellent value for lunch.

The staff was friendly, it was quiet and peaceful, the best Indian food I have eaten in 6 years. Chicken Korma was sweet and spicy and creamy...cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this place!

This place is great. We are from NY - accustomed to cringe-worthy holes in the wall when it comes to Indian buffet. First - their buffet is on point. Even if you hate buffet - you will love this place. There is a huge selection and it is really good food. Second - it is CLEAN. Like - really really... More

The luncheon buffet is a little pricey but the variety of food is worth the price. I think some new cooks are preparing the buffet now. It slid for a time but we really enjoyed our visit yesterday. Three different excellent salads were offered as well as vegetable dishes, shrimp and chicken dishes with rice. Tandoori chicken was available. Naan... More

Quick and easy, I've never tried Indian food because I know I don't like curry. I was talked into going by a friend and ordered Tandoori Shrimp. It was simply melt in your mouth delicious. If you haven't tried this place, I strongly suggest it. I shall be back!
