    My wife's vegetables were not cooked well enough and when more was brought out not much improved. However, they offered a complimentary desert because they were sorry she did not enjoy her meal, which was much appreciated. My dish was excellent. We will definitely go back!!

    We were seated quickly and the place was not crowded at all. The waitress was knowledgeable and helped us select drinks, the right heat for our meals, as well as desserts. Probably one of the best Indian restaurants that I've been to. Would definitely go again.

    We went for lunch and ordered our regular favorites. Portions were large; I actually took home enough of my lunch for 2 more meals! I liked that Naan bread came with the lunch so we didn't have to order it separately. We will return.

    Samosas were a good size and cooked well. mago shrimp was excellent. our meals were good, not great. asking for medium spice was quite high spice and I have a high tolerance for spicey foods. vegetables were cooked well. mango Lassi and garlic Naan were excellent. atmosphere was ok. were a lot of flies the day we ate (lunch) and made it difficult to relax at the meal. service was good, but the one server was stretched thin covering everyone. I would visit again at dinner ... as opposed to lunch .. . to give the restaurant another shot at a higher rating

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
