“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Prices are on par with other similar restaurants around town, but the food, and the view, are better than most.

“Up and down the hill, still my favourite Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

I have been a regular for many years now in Nawab. Anytime we are in the city, me and my wife always make sure to stop for at least one lunch.

Good Points:
1) Menu is quite extensive, with a large choice for both meat and veggie lovers. My favorites remain the garlic/veggie balls and the spicy chicken wings! Don't miss this two delicacies!
2) Service sincerely never disappointed us, the manager is always friendly and ready to give support in choosing your meal.
3) Prices might seem a little higher than the average Kampala restaurant, but the quality of the food is worth it. There are more expensive restaurants in Kampala were the food and the portion are not comparable. Nawab all the way!

Bad points:

1) At times the food is not fresh, you can taste it, but this is the exception. I guess every restaurant has its ups and downs, especially with the unregulated power cuts in Kampala.
2) Location is only ok, on the roof of Garden City Mall, with a view on the Nakumatt Supermarket roof and the traffic on the busy round-about.... Atmosphere is definitely not the strongest point of Nawab.
3) Bathrooms, please renovate!

We will be back soon.

“Genuine Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Nawab is located on the rooftop of Garden City Mall. It has truly good food and good seating area. The prices are reasonable and the staff is agreeable and professional. The service was fast and quality of the food was superb. Looking forward to eating there again, recommended if you like Indian cuisine or even if you don't.

“great food, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Ended up eating here 3 nights in a row. Really food and a position close to the Golf Course Hotel (in thew shopping centre next door). Not the greatest decor, but a nice roof terrace with decent views. Service a bit lax, but the food more than makes up for that, with a varied menu & excellent dishes.

Situated on the top story of a mall, walking distance to city centre. Good Indian cuisine served in traditional tableware. Good service
