The food is delicious—most importantly. However, the amount of food in the takeout order is noticeably smaller. Especially now we’ve all gone through the time of Covid, takeout is essential. In the past, overhead costs for takeout might have been considerably less, but realize with...all other costs associated with materials/credit card fees, etc. probably almost equals dine-in cost now. When the customer becomes aware of minimal amounts in the containers…maybe smaller containers? Or just give it one more scoop.More

Best Indian food in Winston Salem. Everything is so delicious. There is never a long wait for food either once seated. The staff is also wonderful. They are always so kind and on top of things.

We love this place! We moved here from Providence, RI about 2 years ago and initially missed the great selection of ethnic restaurants that we had had up there. Thankfully, we found Nawab. The food, atmosphere, and service are all impeccable. The staff is very...friendly. We eat here about twice a month and do take-out occasionally as well. We highly recommend giving this place a try.More

Good Indian food, clean with good service. They have a nice mimosa bar with the buffet. Hope the buffet opens again soon. A little pricey a la cart but the food is really good. Better than any other Indian place I have been to in...the state. Sometimes it is a bit crowded but they manage to move folks through pretty well. Parking is easy and access is good.More

Takeout. This Indian spot has a lot of the favorites, while also mixing it up with Indian street food. The chicken achari is a fantastic curry and pickle dish with such deep flavor. The chicken was moist. They have various levels of heat, mild through...“Indian hot.” I got the level below, just “hot,” and it was quite spicy, but not unpleasant. But if you don’t have good heat tolerance, tread carefully. I also got chat papari. Chickpeas, onions, potatoes, crunchy flour dumplings. Tasty. I was disappointed in the “garden salad.” It was fresh, but was just lettuce and cucumbers. No onions or tomatoes. I would try this place again. They did not Americanize the food, and I love that!More

This is one of the few restaurants that we venture out to during COVID. The food and atmosphere are always exceptional and we feel safe eating there. Precautions are in place and the staff are as warm and welcoming as always. The food is consistently...delicious and one of our favorite wait staff is Rajesh. He remembers us and our spice tolerances lol!More

We celebrated my son's birthday there this evening. It was not our first time dining there, but it was my first time back since the COVID-19 closure and reopening. First of all, we felt very comfortable with the level of sanitization, safety measures, and appropriate...seating spacing. Not only did they offer general hand sanitizers in the restaurant, but personal ones on the tables. The restaurant was very clean, as always. Service was excellent, caring, and timely. Rajesh, our server, was friendly, caring, and made us feel like old friends or family by the time we left. The food is EXCELLENT, leaving a veritable explosion of flavor on one's palate! As we ate, we literally said, "this food just makes you happy". Spice levels are perfectly delivered as requested. The only problem was trying to figure out what to order this time from the vast and wonderful options for all taste and diet types (full spectrum, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, etc.). But experience tells me that we could not have made a bad choice. Portions are very generous and the prices are fair and affordable. We left planning our next visit! Thank you Rajesh! We'll see you again soon.More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I was not sure that it would live up the memory of my first meal. I had talked it up so much I was nervous to take my husband. It was just as good the second time....Amazing buffet with a wonderful variety of options. I will go back every chance I get.More

I have eaten dinner at Nawab, but never experienced the buffet. Great varied selection of dishes to choose from. The food was kept hot and fresh, service was as if you were sitting for dinner. Very good experience, so I'll be stopping in again.

We dined at Nawab on a busy Friday evening. We were lucky to find a table immediately, even at 6:30 PM. Though busy, we had excellent and friendly service with good recommendations for selections. We enjoyed Shrimp Curry and Lamb Tandori. All in all our...dinner was superb in every way.More

Great value for an Indian buffet, but nothing really blew me away or struck me as particularly memorable. Not bad if you just want quick, average Indian. Would not return.

We are not from the area and happened upon this place. What a treat! The food was delicious! It is a fairly extensive buffet that'll make the carnivore and vegetarian happy. My husband especially loved the goat and okra dishes. I loved all the veggie...dishes and the salads--especially the salad that had small pieces of fried bread in it--yum! All dishes were expertly spiced with delicious sauces. My advice try a little of everything and then go back and get more of what you really like. So much to choose from. For $14.00 it is all you can eat place a mimosa. Great value for such high quality food!More
