I skeptically took my friend's advice and went to dinner at Nawab. We each had a different curry meal so we could share. We did chicken, goat and seafood. My, my. Took us two days to finish it all along with the bread they serve. Ask for that Mango drink they have...delicious.

If you are a fan of Indian cooking, then you can find it here. There is a lunch buffet every day and on Saturdays that has lamb and chicken curries as well as some vegetarian (paneer, a stellar dish of potatoes & eggplant, chickpea curry).

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.

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.
