We love this restaurant! The service is always good and the food even better. We have never had a dish we did not enjoy!
I met an old friend at Nawab, and we enjoyed the lunch buffet. There's always a good selection of dishes. I only gave the food 4 stars because my favorite (Chicken Saag)was not included this time; however, that means I can return for dinner sometime soon and order it! The people who work at Nawab are always very friendly. It's a favorite restaurant in Williamsburg...and I eat at the Newport News location when I'm down that way!
Nawab is one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsburg. Everyone is so welcoming and the food is delicious. I love we how we can choose between 1-5 for heat! I’d definitely recommend this place and often do.
Valentine’s Day dinner was very good, the level 5 hot curry was truly hot! The lamb filets were excellent.
Very friendly owners make eating there especially nice
One of the best ethnic restaurants we have ever been two.
Originally from nyc area and had many Indian friends there and went to some really fine Indian restaurants with them.
This one is as good or better than those we enjoyed in the nyc area.
Their level of customer concern and customer satisfaction is impressive.
The food was excellent. We all ordered spice levels of 2 or less and for some of us that was a bit on the spicy side. However, I definitely plan on going back.
Excellent breadth of Indian dishes. Service was prompt, but language difficulties precluded meaningful explanation of various offerings. Prices were mid-level and reasonable. Very casual/sloppy dress by customers. High chairs for children are readily available. General ambiance is basement-level, and lighting is so dim that examining one's food is difficult.
My wife and I both had lamb dishes, which were excellent. We return every year when we visit Williamsburg.
The restaurant was clean and well furnished. It is obviously a family business and they worked well together. The food was excellent. My only “complaint” would be that the entree serving was much too large; 1/2 was taken home.
They serve large portions of good food. I enjoyed my meal, but was unable to finish the large portion.
Wonderful and friendly staff and absolutely delicious food!!
Food is delicious! They were a bit overwhelmed due to holiday traffic but the food was still great!
Good food, great atmosphere, fabulous service
I try to go every time I am in town (multiple times / year). Is my favorite for this sort of cuisine, is also among my favorites in general.
The wonderful family who run Nawab Williamsburg are so gracious, kind, attentive, and thorough we return again and again. Tonight we hosted the rehearsal dinner for 20 people from our wedding there and it was as amazing, warm, and joyful as one could hope. Thank you for the wonderful memories and the incredible food and service!
The food was very, very good. What most impressed me was the attentive staff, who led me through my meal decision based upon the questions that I asked. I would go back the next time I visit Williamsburg.
One of our favorites.
Excellently prepared and presented. Staff very attentive. Tandori chicken was nice and juicy and not over cooked. Wish I weren’t visiting or I’d eat here more often!
Excellent food, good service. Staff was pleasant. Food came promptly. We will return.
Best Indian restaurant in town. Been going there since we were tourist in the 90's. Now retired in Williamsburg and Nawab still going strong.
Always our family go to Indian restaurant whenever we visit Williamsburg. Great food and friendly service. Price is fair.
First time eating Indian food. Excellent!!!
We had a fantastic dinner, pure home made food. Family business and they were so friendly and very helpful with food suggestions.
The food is great the service is awesome and it is a good place to take a special someone out!
Very nice food, friendly prompt service. Restaurant was too cold- too much air con.
Once again a wonderful dining experience! The service is fantastic, and the menu is very diverse in terms of choices, both entrees and appetizers. Very high quality Indian food, they take care to get it authentic and right. Love the Indian wine selection! One of my favorite restaurants in Williamsburg.
We felt so welcome and so much appreciated.
The entire staff are very dedicated to your food preferences and making sure you are more than happy and satisfied.
We will go back very soon.
Portions were certainly generous.
Food quality the highest.
We really enjoyed our experience. Very helpful staff who guided us through the substantial varieties of flavors. Everything was wonderfully spiced and prepared quickly.
Amazing! (As always)
Food had more heat than most Indian restaurants catering to Americans- which was good. Friendly service. A little pricey but good portion sizes. Would definitely go back.
We were visiting from out of town and read reviews to find this gem. Service was wonderful and the food was amazing. The spice level was perfect.
1st time eating at Nawab...it will not be the last
We have eaten here many times over the years, first as tourists, now living in Williamsburg. The food is always good and the service is excellent.
The Korma was very good. Service was good but not outstanding. I would go there again.
Excellent food. I know there are so many "historic" venues in Williamsburg to dine but if you enjoy Indian food, then Nawab is the place to go. We are from Philadelphia, and we always go to Nawab when in the area.
Large selection of very interesting dishes. Each diner was able to adjust spice level to his/her taste. Flavors were delicious. All in all, we are glad we went there, and will go there the next time we are in Williamsburg.
Very good to excellent experience altogether. Attractive dining room, excellent family operated ethnic restaurant with a wide assortment of choices. Although our wait person made some effort to be helpful, and although the menu was somewhat descriptive of the entree choices, I believe more assistance is needed. Additionally, the amount of spiciness is indicated on the menu, but when I selected the 3 out of 5 for heat in the dish, our wait person discouraged me from selecting that degree of heat. He turned out to be correct, so I'm not faulting him but there needs to be a legend in the menu that describes each degree of heat.
Our first dining experience was wonderful. The owner and staff was so helpful in coaching us about the food and beverage choices. The food was excellent. We look forward to going back!
Christmas Evening they were understaffed and slow.
Delicious Indian food. I enjoyed my meal here. They were very busy and service was a bit slower than usual.
