We Always enjoy good Indian food. Our hotel was in downtown Roanoke so we walked to Nawab. Nice clean uncluttered interior. Friendly service and good food. Reasonably priced, what more could you ask for.

We have been meaning to try Nawab for some time and finally made it. The lunch buffet is great, highly recommend. Very good selection. We arrived at 11:30 as they opened and the restaurant quickly filled up. The by the glass Chardonnay was also very good. Highly recommend!

First time trying Indian food. Had the goat. It was spicy. Just the way I like my food. Their curry is different from I expected but that's ok. It was delicious except the smell of the cilantro. Good food! Amazing atmosphere. Would visit again

We switch it up from buffet to ordering from the menu. Both options are great and never disappoint. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. Price is comparable to competitors and on point for the location and quality.

The two of us ate lunch at Nawab Indian Cuisine. The buffet was Very Good...somewhat limited and bland...but tasty. The same can be said of the service, atmosphere, and value. The restaurant is centrally located and easy to find.

Our party of 9 shared 7 dishes and everything was very good with the exception of the lamb. It was tough but the sauce was great. The disappointment was also after seeing on the menu some very unique cocktails we were told their was no bartender there to make them:(

We are regulars at the Nawab buffet for a couple of years now. The food is excellent and consistently good. Their Vindaloo dishes are one of the best Indian dishes we've ever tasted. Their buffet is an excellent quality/price meal and they always have a lot of variations. Service is also always wonderful. It is definitely one of the best... More

I love Nawab. All other Indian restaurants that I have been to (which have been a good variety, in state and out of country) pale in comparison. The service is attentive and professional. The decor is modern with an intimate feel. The food is divine! Seriously, it seems a spiritual experience to eat their food! the Saagwala is out of... More

Risking local ire.... I like Nawab better than Taaza. The buffet is just that good. I always love everything I eat, end up going back for seconds, and wishing I could get thirds. The naan bread at the table is fresh and a great addition to the meal.

I'm married into an Indian family, so we eat at Indian restaurants a lot. This one was different. Not the usual dark lighting and gold and red furnishings. It was modern and playful. Kinda Bollywood. Young energetic staff. The food was slightly different than the standard Americanized fair. Though they had the ever dependable chicken korma, they also had goat... More
