If your palates have taste of typical indian flavors, this place may not entice you. Food coloring is great but doesn't live up to the taste it should deliver I had the lunch buffet last Friday and felt that the options were limited, coupled with a lot of delay in serving breads, I had to remind them at least thrice....

In Indian standards, this is not the best place for Indian food. I have visited this place only once and I do not want to go there again. The buffet does not have anything special. Grilled tandoori chicken sucks big time!

The hotel we were staying at recommended this restaurant. They do have free parking located in the rear of the property. We had the patia w/ chicken and goat biryani. Both were excellent. The patia, which is curry w/ mango, was kind of spicy but good. Would come here again if in the area. Prices were reasonable, not expensive. Located... More

Dining room was comfortable and our meal was delicious. "Medium" heat requested came to order. Was a bit weird that we were charged for non-leaking take out containers, but oh well. Would go again, though the parking lot across the street charged $8, which seemed absurd for Roanoke.

My daughter and I went for dinner and ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Korma. They were both excellent . . . the chicken was moist . . . I find it rather dry and tough in most Indian restaurants. The Naan was good, but not great. With two entrees and two orders of Naan, we had enough to... More

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.

Thank David B
