Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The starters we tried were the Crisp onion roundlets and the Sabzi Platter. The onion roundlets were flavorful and crispy, with a nice balance of traditional spices. The Sabzi Platter offered a good variety with Onion Bhaji, Vegetable Samosa, and Vegetable Pakora, though some items...were a bit greasy. For mains, we opted for the Chicken Tikka Dry and the Lahori Gosht. The Chicken Tikka Dry was well-marinated and cooked perfectly in the clay oven, offering a satisfyingly tender texture. The Lahori Gosht, while flavorful, was a bit spicier and might not suit those with milder tastes. However, the lamb was cooked to perfection and the yogurt sauce added a nice tanginess. Overall it was a wonderful experience and we are looking forward to going back soon when we are back in Nottingham!More

From start to finish nothing was too much trouble. The booking started off as 12, then went up to 20! We had to pay a deposit and pre order our food as it was such a big party. I took everyone’s order and took it...into the restaurant the day before our booking. When we arrived on the evening, we all sat down and had a great time. The staff had so much patience, and was always smiling, chatting and laughing with us. The restaurant was full with other guests too, but it was as if we was the only ones in the restaurant the service was that good. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was, including 2 that had never eaten in an Indian restaurant before. When it came to paying, a member of staff had already worked out how much each meal was (I had written the order down a family at a time) which made paying so much easier and less stressful. It was so much easier to work it out. They sorted it so our daughter could have her birthday cake and we all sang happy birthday (even setting the fire alarm off) We then all went outside for our family photo. We honestly could not recommend this restaurant enough. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and look after everyone’s wants and needs. Thank you all so muchMore

Average experience overall! The place was neat and tidy and good customer service. The food was good for a little overpriced menu!

I’ve been to many Indian restaurants but none of this standard, we went on Valentine’s Day and the food, service and atmosphere exceeded my expectations. We have been to many different Indians but they are usually loud, unfriendly atmosphere and just hectic whereas Nawaab Saab...was completely the opposite, it was very formal, sophisticated and the had the perfect atmosphere, not to mention the decor . The staff was attentive who anticipated our every need and they were very knowledgeable. While ordering our mains we wanted something that was not on the Valentine’s Day menu and the staff was more than happy to let us order items that where not on the menu, we was recommended by the staff the bottle of Pinotage as we was informed it would compliment our meal which was the garlic chilli chicken and the Jalfrezi. If you ever visit this restaurant make sure you ask for their recommendations. You won’t be disappointedMore

Best food and service anywhere in Nottingham. I have been to numerous restaurants in the city centre however this restaurant is the major standout compared to the others, boasting multiple awards which are backed by the richest flavours and the best service, especially the waiters...who are attentive. Valentine’s Day was very special, well decorated and made us feel very welcome. Would love to spend every Valentine’s Day here if I could. Amazing restaurant, keep it up Nawaab SaabMore

I had the most amazing time at this Valentine's themed restaurant! The staff were incredible, and checked on us regularly and the cherry on top was the rose and chocolates they gave me at the end. Such a thoughtful touch! It made the whole first...time dining in experience even more special. I highly recommend this place for a romantic and memorable date night. Can't wait to go backMore
