“Decent food but highly priced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Nawabi Khaana has good service. Located slightly far away near Oysterbay access is a bit of an issue. The food is strictly average although it has got a good name in Dar es Salaam. The starters could be better but the main course is definitely good. No sweet dishes are served.
The biggest problem is that the food is over priced here. An average sitting for four can cost around 100 to 125k tshs (50-75 USD) with drinks.
Good for a one time visit if you have some money to spare but no repeat value.

“A generous serving of India in Africa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Good Indian restaurant in Tanzania serving tasty Indian fare. The staff is clad in traditional Indian clothing, they have a large swing in one corner and very Indian ambience, with classical background music. Quantity is a bit less compared to the price, but the taste is delectable.

We had veg, since our hosts are vegetarian, but I am sure the non veg dishes would be equally nice.

Service is really slow....I have observed this all over Dar es Salam while having A la Carte meals....this is the only reason why I would choose having a buffet anywhere.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

I was having a business dinner in Dar and wonder where to take my colleagues and client. Nawabi Khana ended up being intelligent guess.

The ambience was good and the food was great!

I will definitely come again

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

If you live on the peninsula and don't want to get out, you will settle with mediocre indian food. I suggest you venture to town and try some real authentic Indian food. This place is dull, and food doesn't do Indian food justice.
