“Great food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went on a rare meal out together whilst on holiday on the Isle of Wight we chose the Nabab as it had good reviews and rating.
We were seated and order taken straight away the service was very good and waiting staff very friendly, we had onion bhaji's and a Bengal omelette to start both of which were lovely although were only warm and it was a little bit of a wait before we had our starter. The main came out quickly we had chicken korma, garlic chicken fried rice, keema naan and chips all of which were very nice.
This is the first Indian I have had where I have liked every part of it it was very tasty, highly recommended and would definitely eat here again.

“"Easily the best curry house on the island."”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

I know that isn't saying a great deal considering the size of the Isle of Wight, but this really was one of the best Indian dining experiences I've ever had. The waiters were friendly enough, the prices were reasonable (especially being a place where you can bring your own booze) and the food was consistently great.

All the starters we had (a medley of bhajis and meat) were excellent, and that standard didn't fall when the mains arrived either; in fact, they actually raised the bar, delivering what remains to this day the best Chicken Tikka Massala I have ever had (it comes with easy recommendation). The other dishes (vegetable curry, chicken curry, and a prawn dish) were also lovely (rich, great use of herbs and spices).

The only thing I can really fault about my visit is that the tables are slightly cramped. Apart from that, there was nothing to hinder it being one of the best Indian meals I've ever had.
