Came here after an appointment in the area and ordered take out chicken curry and samosas. While waiting I had some wine, and just relaxed, as the ambiance calls for it. The server was extremely kind and informative. I was very pleased with my food and only ate half because of the substantial portion. Saved the rest and ate it... More

Took a lebanese auditor here on her last day of training with me. The placed was packed on a Thursday during the lunch buffet. We didn't mind the short wait because the food was hot and flavorful. We ate abundantly but also healthy. The service was pretty poor but the food still gets the place 5 stars. I had the... More

Service was good very attentive and I think it was the owner or manager who came by to see if we liked the cuisine . We ordered butter chicken which was not on the... More

In a city of restaurants with too few vegetables and too much oil & fat, Nawab was a find. Located in a modest shopping strip, the restaurant is well-appointed and suitable for older children and adults (it's friendly, but not really a place for young ones). Herbs are fresh and used well. Spices are fragrant, with the "mild" retaining the... More

A great easy to reach location, very good room ambience, good space for privacy, very friendly, efficient and respectful service, and an excellent menu slightly spoiled by it being served on cold plates.

A lovely dining room, great for a quiet dinner or a big celebration. The food is among the best Indian food I've had anywhere. The curries and Tikka dishes are really rich and flavorful. I also like the appetizer selection plate on the dinner menu. They cater to any taste in spiciness. They have a 1-5 scale (2 is still... More

We enjoyed the lunch buffet on a weekday. A nice assortment of entrees were provided, which I understand from a regular are changed regularly, as well as salad items and desserts. Very good service.
