Beyond belief! It’s been over 5 years since I went to Nawab (Williamsburg) and was looking forward to taking my stepmother to the Newport News restaurant. It did not disappoint and I can’t wait to go back. It’s still the best of the mid-Atlantic bar none.

I love the fact that Nawab offers lots of gluten free choices!! The food is wonderful and the restaurant is beautiful. Our server got distracted by some take-out customers who were talkative but became very efficient when we got her attention and told her that we were going to a performance and had a timeline. We appreciated that very much.

Lacked flavor, samosa was powdered potato taste & dry. Servers who were Mexican did not know the cuisine or ever had any. Difficult service & lacked attentive service.

Excellent food, good service with some language gaps. Manager (owner?) made helpful recommendations especially about flavors and heat/spice intensity and cleared up confusion at the service of various dishes. Would recommend one less entree than number of diners, if sharing, as dinner portions are generous, especially when accompanied by rice.

The food was delicious! The only thing is (and this is me being nit picky) the waitress just showed up at our table 5 minutes after we got there and asked if we were ready to order. I guess I’m used to the servers introducing themselves, asking whether I’ve dined with them before and welcoming me. Other than that, we had a great experience. The prices are reasonable and I’ll definitely go back.

We have eaten at Nawab's other locations and have never had a bad meal, this time included. The only negative thing about this restaurant is the location. It is kind of out of the way, tucked into a strip mall.

Just an overall wonderful dining experience. Each new flavor was better than the one before. Staff is fantastic and very helpful. Its not a business, its a passion for these folks who are proud of the unique dining experience they offer. Come try something tastefully different.

The service was phenomenal, as usual. The food was full of flavor, well presented and very well prepared. The wine was perfectly chilled. The ambiance was well suited to allow a conversation to take place at the table. It was an excellent experience!

We had a wonderful meal here! Just passing through Newport News, and looked at previous reviews on Open Table. We had the mixed grill kabobs and the garlic Naan. Everything was perfectly seasoned and delicious. The servers were wonderful and made good suggestions. I can't wait to go back on my next trip through Newport News! Maybe next week!!

The atmosphere here is very quiet and peaceful. Service is attentive and the server was very helpful in explaining the menu and answering questions and making recommendations. The food was excellent and I would come back. I had just one criticism. When we came in the door and were waiting to be seated, there is some type of wall waterfall at the entrance that apparently was being serviced. I don't think this added much to the ambiance and I think could have been done when the business was closed for the day.

I was a bit worried after realizing Nawab was in a strip mall and not City Center, as I originally thought, but was pleasantly surprised. Doesn't look like anything special on the exterior, but is quite nice and clean inside and had delicious food. Some of the best Naan and Chicken Tikka I've ever had, and I live next to the #2 ranked Indian restaurant in D.C.

Quality and authentic Indian cuisine. The lunch buffet is clean and food plentiful. It's a great place to take clients or for a quick lunch that is much better than typical lunch options.

Highly recommended...
