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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wow, the lamb Dhansak, rice and garlic naan were all very good. Generous size of portions, which I can not say that every restaurant does. I collected within 20 minutes of ordering, so great service. I keep coming back to Nawabi as not only is...it local, it is one of the best for quality.More

Haven't had a meal from here for years after a bad experience. Saturday we decided to give it another go. We ordered a delivery at 5pm when they opened, I think this was a big mistake as it looked and tasted like yesterday's food. Poppadoms...were stale and soft, onion bahji rock hard. Didn't taste fresh at all. Forgot our naan bread had to phone them, it was delivered in 10 minutes. Our bill was just over £56 which isn't cheap. Very disappointed 😞More

Tried the Nawabi on a Saturday night having given up on our local. Ordered at 17:00 for 19:00 collection, food ready bang on time. Absolutely delicious.. 3 very different mains and all cooked to perfection, lovely & distinct flavours. Will definitely go again.

We tried Nawabi for the first time this evening, ordering a delivered takeaway from their website. It came very promptly (30 mins) and went down well with my family. The mixed grill and a vegetable bhuna were particular hits with our kids, but we all...enjoyed all of it. Only the king prawn butterfly starter was a slight let down, containing just two prawns. Overall the whole meal was tasty, well cooked, delivered hot, and good value. We'll very likely order again in future.More

Great to see this excellent takeaway recognised in the Oxford Mail; 25 years and great hygiene score on the door. Always great food, and still going strong with online orders during this difficult time. Keep it up !

It was convenient for our purpose but just OK. It was pretty average and we've definitely had much better TBH.

DO NOT ORDER from here. Was told food would be 45 mins-1 hour. Food still hadn’t arrived at 1h30 and when called to get an update, they cancelled our order because of our ‘complaint’ on chasing arrival time. Completely unacceptable and won’t be ordering from...this place and recommend u don’t either!More

We have been regular customers of Nawabi for well over 20 years. We have just returned from holiday and needed something to eat so ordered, albeit a small order, food at 19.30 with a delivery time of 20.30. At 20.45 telephoned as not arrived to...be told the order was on its way. Phoned again at 21.00 as Nawabi is only 10 mins away to be told they are very busy and it’s on its way! Food arrived at 21.15 and was not very hot. So sad to be having to post this negative review after so many years of good service. We feel that maybe if we had ordered a large amount of food we would have received it at 20.30.More
