This is a mediocre indian restaurant situated in Zamalek Island. The interior was dated and dull , the staff didn't try to accommodate us due to an upcoming party. I had to negotiate to let ourselves dine there. Food was good and can be stated as average. Nothing fancy here..

The hotel offers a great taste of Indian food. It has a great variety of Indian dishes. We also availed their home delivery services. The experience was great.

We, I and my wife, were visiting Egypt in a group tour during October, 2016. We went to the Nawab Zamalek Indian Restaurant for buffet lunch and dinner. Considering the fact that there are hardly any restaurants in Cairo serving Indian cuisine, the food at this place was the best choice. The restaurant decor and seating arrangement is basic but...

This has got to be the worst "Indian" food I have ever had. The food is carelessly prepared with little to zero spices, the only saving grace is the gentleman at the cashier is very polite and welcoming. If he would hire an authentic Indian chef this place would be great.

Well I understand finding authentic food in Egypt is not a piece of cake, however Nawab offers great Indian food. The place is easy to miss and you should look really carefully to find it. Inside the restaurants the decor is not good at all and they should really invest a bit on it. Otherwise food is great and you... More

I went to Nawab last week for dinner. The tandoori chicken and naan bread were delicious, but the appitizers were ok. The place is so shabby! What a pity. I would order delivery next time, but wouldn't want to eat there. The service was also so-so. Such a pity….
