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.

I am actually shocked by some of the average ranked reviews for this restaurant! We went on a Saturday night and it was packed. Mostly with Indian people, which I believe is a good sign! We ordered Lamb Rogan Josh, Chicken Korma, Mint Chicken and Chana Masala. All was absolutely delicious. There wasn't a drop left over! If you don't... More

The lunchtime buffet has a wide range of wonderful dishes, including both hot and cold options. The Tikka Masala is tremendous as is the Dal Makhni. At $12.95, the buffet may seem a bit pricey, but it is an excellent value, and a great way to sample an array of authentic Indian dishes. Tucked in the corner of a small,... More

Food is about average quality; Very expensive (1 entree about 17 dollars is extreme even for an authentic indian cuisine) Buffet is a better value proposition. I would not visit again. The only advantage for this restaurant is being the only indian place in winston salem.
