  • Dinner was OK, Lunch is Ideal!

    At lunch time they offer a fairly decent Buffett, but their dinner was on the pricier side for the same ambience and same great service. The lamb that I ordered at dinner was on the dry side, however the goat my wife ordered was exceptional. I should've ordered that too. It was tender and with the bones in made it that much more flavorful. But the lunch gives you a nice Buffett sampler of their dishes which is why I like that more and the price is better.

    Excellent food! We have been coming here for over twenty years. Flavorful and top quality. Many vegetarian delights. Fish (Salmon-high quality) Tika MASALA is incredible!

    Their service is warm, their ambience subdued and quiet. The food, however, is utterly outstanding. They carefully tailor the spice levels to your taste, and mix sauces that you will dream about for a week. Don't miss.

    Met with a group of ladies for lunch. Two had never had Indian food before that day. We thought a buffet would be the perfect way to introduce them to the fare. Every person in our group went back for seconds! Nawab has never let me down. Their foods buffet has the perfect blends of spicy and non-spicy foods, the naan is always made to perfection and they serve a good mix of meat an non-meat choices. Everything on the buffet was clearly labeled and nicely displayed. I would recommend Nawab because it is a good place for groups to meet, the food, and the service.

    My family dined at Nawab on a Wednesday night, arriving about an hour after their opening time of 5 p.m. We were the only guests in the restaurant. It was not because Nawab lacks in quality! Every item ordered was delicious. The only problem was that a bowl of rice was not delivered with the entrees. That was corrected moments after I brought it to the server's attention and he was very kind to see that we wee amply supplied with fresh rice, even for our take-out boxes. The staff was unfamiliar with the $20 Open Table discount coupon I included in my payment. The server called the owner about it and there were no problems at all with using it at Nawab. We have dined here before but not for several years. My family wants to return soon!

    We have been Nawab fans for note than twenty years. Fish Tikka Marsala is my favorite! They are attentive and helpful-especially if you are new to Indian cuisine. Buffet for lunch is excellent.

    Very nice staff, food was very good but the dinner prices are a little expensive for the portions. Drinks are expensive also. Paid $20 for two shots. But I hear the lunch buffet is really good so I will try that next.

    Great food, Scallops were amazing. Some staff is very helpful if you have questions. One in particular was very rude though, rushed us through everything. They accidentally took my plate away when I wanted it to-go but they made me new food to take with me without me even saying a word!

    Nawab's chef uses plenty of high-quality ingredients in his sauces.. for example the Lamb Vindaloo is what I use to gauge whether a restaurant is skimping on ingredients. Nawab (Norfolk)'s chef takes the time to use plenty of herbs and spices to bring out very pleasant, complex tastes to the sauces.
