We went to Newport News to stock up at Costco and Trader Joes. We finished the day with a dinner stop at Nawab. Good things: The food is delicious. I especially recommend the Paneer "65" appetizer, a tasty spicy paneer dish, and the Malai Methi Corn dish. The restaurant and table settings were sparklingly clean. The wait staff was responsive...

I've visited this restaurant for their lunch buffet at least twice a month for the past 4 years . Even though they don't offer a lot of main dishes, they do a great job by changing them every day. This makes you want to come back to try the diffrent offerings. The food is delicious and very consistent. They do... More

I was greeted by the most gracious host. Ambience was nice and restaurant was very clean and neat. The food was better than average, actually very good. Even though I was the only one in the restaurant, they were extremely courteous, yet didn't hover over me. Gave me V space and quiet that I was looking for along with a... More

I always do the lunch buffet as you get a great opportunity to try a dozen different items and find out which are your favorites

I usually plan on trying something different but end up selecting the chicken tikka and asking for it to be #2 in hot spiciness. My husband always chooses #10 as in "HOT". All the dishes that accompany the chicken tikka are delicious. The restaurant is very nicely painted and the background music Is calming.. The servers are very pleasant and... More

My Wife and I ate here, it was a recommendation from someone from the school house at Fort Eustis. We haven't had a good Indian Curry place since Japan. Mango Lasse and Butter Chicken Curry is a must.

This place is good for having a simple but good Indian food. Buffet during lunch is good. Don't expect extraordinary but simple tasty foods. Yes it's Indian and you get that taste. Its even good for having every day lunch. Not that costly. In 10$ very good indian lunch buffet.
