    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.

    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.

    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.
