Went on a Sunday. Fairly new ownership. Only one person was greeting, waiting on tables and takeout. Therefore there was a bit of a delay. However, food came and it was a good amount. Started eating and the it was simply DELICIOUS!

Well worth the wait, excellent food and priced reasonably!

We were seated promptly at our 7:30 PM Open Table reservation, and it seemed the person at the desk did not look at all to confirm the reservation. After being seated, we waited almost 15 minutes for even a menu and I felt ready to leave! This was New Year's Eve, and the restaurant was maybe 1/4 full, but the serving staff numbered one man and one woman, and she didn't seem to have a clue as to what to do. Once we did get served, the food was excellent, and the followup service by both the male server and the manager/owner was attentive. Overall I was pleased, except for the beginning.

We had dinner at Nizams II for the first time and it was excellent. The moment you walk in and smell the beautiful aromatic spices, you know you are going to get something tasty no matter what. I am not an expert in Indian food, but I have loved everything I've evee tried thus far and we figured let's try Nizams. We were not disappointed. My girlfriend has next to no previous experience with Indian food so was a little nervous to try something out of her comfort zone. For an appetizer, she orderded the Mongolian Crispies (tempura veggies with a wonderfully spiced sweet chili type sauce) and it turned out to be something we both haven't shut up about for days after our dinner. I would highly recommend it especially to someone looking for something that is very approachable. I chose an appetizer equally as approachable that is also available as an entree - Murgh Malai Kebab. It's grilled yogurt based marinated chicken. To say it was juicy is an understatement. It seriously may have been the juiciest pieces of chicken I've ever had. Our entree's were both excellent as well. She got the Eggplant Bhurta and I ordered the Mahkhanwala with chicken. We also ordered up some garlic naan - a MUST to go with your meal.
In addition to the food being spectacular, portions were plenty and we had to take some home.
Be very careful not to judge this restaurant by the outside as it is in fact occupying the same building as a Days Inn. The inside is classy and elegantly decorated and is suitable to take a date. Thanks for reading.

Only one server for way too many tables. We were glad we arrived early or else we might still be waiting to eat.

The food is absolutely delicious! Wonderful service, the staff is so attentive and polite. We brought our 2 children, the restaurant is very kid friendly. The space is huge, perfect for a large party. We will definitely be back over and over again.

Nizams Restuarant seems to be a very authentic Indian food. The aromas in the Restuarant are very pleasing. The food can be ordered to your spice preference, I like my dishes spicy. Everything was fresh including the naan bread.

This was the fourth time at this location and it keeps getting better. I used to stick to the lamb vindaloo but I had enjoyed tasting new dishes. I encourage anyone to open yourself up to something you haven't had at another Indian restaurant, nothing has been a disappointment.

Our third time here and again it was really good. The server recommended a really good fried spinach app (Kurkuri Spinach Chaat). Got the Chicken Vindaloo which is always great. Tried the Chicken Lababdar for the first time, its similar to a tikka masala but a bit thicker sauce. Also got the Chicken Chittinad which was also really good.

Just like the original Nizams, this restaurant is fantastic - you really can't beat the value. By far the best Indian in the area. I highly recommend the vegetarian options, that's my go to.

My wife and I are aficionados of ethnic fare, therefore this restaurant had been on our list of places to visit for a while. We have now dined there twice, and our only regret is that we hadn't been going sooner!

Our second visit was no different than the first! While the owner was absent, the service and food were no less exceptional than our first time, which sometimes is the case when the owner is away. This time we had the Kurkuri Spinach Chaat appetizer (fried battered fresh baby spinach with a tangy sauce), and our entrees were the Baghara Baigan (eggplant in coconut milk with peanuts and sesame seeds) and Kumb Matter (mushrooms and peas in a rich cashew paste sauce). They will make their dishes at any spice level you like…we like it hot, and therefore go one level above “American Spicy”…but they will make any dish mild also…whatever your taste.

For friendliness, cleanliness, and exceptional food, I give this restaurant some of my highest praise, and luckily since we live nearby we will be back again and again!

Food is great as always. It's hard to venture into new dishes when the ones we get are so good. Had the Chicken Vindaloo and Fish Curry. The samosas were great too.

The restaurant is a one man show. Who is bound to goof up as he is juggling with reservations, waiting on tables, cleaning, serving and everything else. My order was messed up two days in a row. Really! And the response is - 'We do not care - you just pay and out you go'

The restaurant is part of the days inn which was weird. The inside of the restaurant was too bright and had no ambiance or reflection of the culture. I honestly felt like I was eating in a cafeteria. The service seemed slow and the restaurant was not busy at all. The food was delicious, but not the best. It was priced well. Overall, I'd rate 3 out of 5 stars. I know this restaurant is still newer so I'm sure they are still working out the kinks. I don't think I'd come back.

If you are looking for authentic Indian cuisine, look no further. I have eaten at both locations several times and never have had a bad meal or experience. They are always consistent.

Recently opened restaurant by family with very successful venue in the area for many years. Food was excellent. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Service was somewhat slow, as was arrival of food, but I assume that is merely "growing pains". There is no liquor license and they do not advertise BYOB so I am uncertain if that is considered acceptable. The food is obviously fresh and that will add time to delivery as well, and is worth the wait. Caution when ordering meats rare or medium rare...they may come well done. It is quiet and conducive to conversation. We will definitely return and I suggest you give it a try.
