Risking local ire.... I like Nawab better than Taaza. The buffet is just that good. I always love everything I eat, end up going back for seconds, and wishing I could get thirds. The naan bread at the table is fresh and a great addition to the meal.

I'm married into an Indian family, so we eat at Indian restaurants a lot. This one was different. Not the usual dark lighting and gold and red furnishings. It was modern and playful. Kinda Bollywood. Young energetic staff. The food was slightly different than the standard Americanized fair. Though they had the ever dependable chicken korma, they also had goat... More

We stopped in to Nawab at lunch time and enjoyed an excellent buffet of traditional Indian cuisine. Service was prompt and friendly, the buffet was very clean and appealing and all the food was fresh and hot. The two of us ate for less than twenty bucks.

Went back for a second time. Love this place and service is exceptional. Will go back if I travel through the area. Restaurant is clean. Only thing I don't like we always have to park across the street and pay $7 for the parking.

I ate here one evening with a client and vendor. I had Chicken Tikka. It was ridiculously good. I will be back. Our server, who I will call Fabulosa (because I have forgotten his name) was attentive and happy. He brought joy to our table along with the food.

My mom and I went in on a weekday for the lunch buffet. We have both said that Nawab is our favorite restaurant! The lunch buffet, at $8.95/each, is a wonderful dining experience! Everything on there is awesome and includes plenty of meat and vegetarian choices, which is good for us since mom is a vegetarian. Every item is fresh... More

Diverse menu which really makes it hard to decide ! Everything was wonderful. All my foodie friends love this place. The service was very professional but slow. Wine service was excellent. Shocking amount of wines from which to choose. I highly recommend you try it

Nawab is consistently a very good choice for Indian cuisine in Roanoke. They have a well stocked and fairly priced lunch buffet. Dinner tends to be a bit more expensive but worth the price. Last night we had the combination tikki masala with large portions of chicken, beef, and shrimp. They also have a decent wine list.

Went to Nawab on a Sunday. The food was excellent. Possibly one of the best Indian food I have had in the West. Very close to authentic, good service and good atmosphere. The restaurant is contemporary and does not have the look of the typical tired Indian restaurant look. The inside reflects the look of aspirational modern India. I would... More
