Our favorite place because it always has a delicious lunch buffet and I would never be able to make a single selection if I had to.

One of my favorite Indian restaurants. But I swear there is a Indian woman server who is so rude... I hate when I see her there. Owners need to remind the staff, we have choices. But the food is always good.

I took my family here while visiting the Norfolk area. We love Indian food, so it's always a hit and miss experience trying to find the amazing Indian food were used to. This place by far surpassed many of the Indian restaurants I have eaten at in my years of traveling. Yes, they are a bit pricier than your typical... More

Every time I come it's like all the flavors are new to me. The curry and turmeric and all the others that I don't know the name of just make everything I've tried delicious. Today was no exception from the curry chicken with cabbage and the curry beef down to the rice is sooo yummy. I love Nawab.

This place must be packed in high season, but luckily for us it was not too busy and we were able to get right in with a reservation just the night before. Chai made fresh! Mild or Spicy you pick! Even Indian spicy if you want to take on the challenge. Great variety and terrific service. A local place to... More
