Without a doubt this is the best Indian restaurant in Aberdeen. Having eaten in and taken away many times over the years, Nawaabs remains the best in the face of the competition. Aberdeen has some good quality Indian food available from many places but none of them provide the flavour sensation and attention to detail that Nawaabs has always given... More

Went there at the weekend for a Birthday dinner. Staff were nice, but the place had a real lack of atmosphere. We asked for enough rice for 5 people and got 2 very small bowls, which would have done just 2 people at a stretch, so we had to order more. Then the main courses arrived and while the food... More

Absolutely delicious meal, served in superfast time, to our door. Partner on a run of early shifts over the New Year so we were unable to visit the restaurant this time. Very accommodating staff on phone and on delivery, food galore, so much, so fresh and hot, very tasty.

After shopping and pub crawl really fancied an Indian meal. Hubby and son suggested going to our old favourite Nawaabs which we hadn't been to in a while. Great choice. Met at door with warm welcome and service was excellent. Food was fantastic too. Our starters were all fresh and tasty followed by our mains. Hubby of course couldn't resist... More

On arrival, waiter met us at door, ordered drinks, quiet at the time, fairly relaxed, ordered up food which came in a short time, good service have visited quite a few times over the years, all in all great meal at reasonable price.

Popped in for food without a reservation and was lucky to get a table for 5. Service was good and food was ok but not the wow factor - just good steady quality and good enough to try again.

A loyal nawaabs customer here of 8 years, but I had a terrible takeaway experience last night. I ordered my regular order (3 items) which usually costs £20 exactly, but when I arrived I was greeted with a bill for £33.40. Odd, as the restaurant had no sit-in customers. I think this move had underhand motives rather than just a... More

Went for dinnerl here with friends. Extensive menu, attentive staff and comfortable surroundings. Meal was simply excellent - couldn't fault it at all. Hearty portions and reasonably priced. We may well become regular visitors!
