“They even charge you for the Water”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Very disappointing. The place is not what is advertised on TV commercials. For the price I was expecting a quality environment, but the buffet area was little more then a stuffy cellar. The chairs and tables were what you would expect to find in a takeaway. The noisy environment made me feel that I was sitting in a football stadium. I had a 30 min wait, but nowhere to sit. When I finally got to the table, I was given some bottled water (tap water presented in a glass bottle), and pointed to the food area. There was a good choice of food, but we won't even offered any tissue papers to clean our hands.
The managers and people at the till looked like mobsters, who NEVER smile. Oh, and they even charge you for the water! Most places (even the ones that are cheaper) give tap water for free, but, not at the NAWAAB. I wouldn't recommend this place.

“Truly memorable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I live down on the South Coast, but have to visit this place everytime I am nearby! The food is out of this world, and the service is good too. Some of the waiters sometimes look a little disinterested, but that's nothing a compliment cant fix. Amazing appearance and appeal to people of all ages, especially families and large groups. Extremely practical having a big car park out the back too. Will be popping in next week hopefully!

“My favourite restaurant EVER!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We travel up to Manchester from Birmingham every few months, as there is nothing like this place where we live. I am totally addicted to this place. In particular, I have to recommend the Egyptian bread pudding (if you have a sweet tooth).

It appears that nawaabs are expanding as they have proposed opening a new restaurant in my home town in the midlands! Exciting times!
