I eat at Nawab at least once a month, always for the lunch buffet. The food is excellent and the buffet provides a wide variety. Omnivores and vegetarians can find plenty to satisfy them. The restaurant is clean and tastefully decorated.

We have eaten at this Indian restaurant in Winston-Salem several times. The food is good and the service is OK. We like the aloo gobi and chana masala dishes, as well as the plain naan (~bread) and mango lassi (drink). The prices are not inexpensive, but the food is good so it is worth paying the price. The only negative... More

Nice decor with well dressed staff. Severs are efficient and quiet. I enjoyed the diverse selections on the substantial menu. I like it spicy but watch out for Indian spicy, it will light you up

Went for Sunday buffet at lunchtime. Got there early before the crowd. Great ambience. Nice clean modern look. Looks freshly painted. Only the floor looked worn. The host quickly directed us to a table and then told us that the champagne was part of the buffet. Sure enough there was orange juice and champagne on ice. The buffet isn't a... More

We have taken 3 of our grandchildren, ages 12,15, and 17 to Nawab.They all loved the variety and asked to go back. One of my grandchildren can only tolerate mild and they always accommodated her taste buds. The food is tasty and the atmosphere delightful.

I've traveled and eaten Indian in numerous cities in this and other countries. I am VERY happy that Nawab is so close to home, as it is my favorite Indian restaurant anywhere. The food is fresh, delicious, and spiced to your specifications. For vegetarians, it is the perfect restaurant. Great service, too!

Nawab's close proximity to the Wake Forest School of Medicine draws large crowd for its lunch buffet available seven days a week. Their salads are excellent and their main courses are supplemented by two offerings of rice, There are always a couple of vegetarian offerings. The naan is excellent as are the lightly fried vegetable fritters with dipping sauce. Many... More

Can you image how plain and boring our life would be without Indian food? Glad to find this place on my trip here. Lunch time buffet is great option to try several dishes. Great choices for vegans. Tasty food.
