Nawab Indian Cuisine

We at Nawab are committed to preserving a culture, tradition and standard in culinary tastes that a real life Nawab would appreciate. It has been more than two decades ago since the Nawab restaurant group was established in Norfolk, VA. The Nawab name has since become an icon of Indian cuisine in the area and established itself as the favored restaurant of curry connoisseurs across Virginia and neighboring states.

If you are a first-time visitor, you will find our cuisine versatile, ranging from paying real homage to things that should celebrate the simple clean or delicate flavors to going all out in presenting you dishes that explode with flavors redolent of spice and heat. We offer a richly-varied menu of high quality ingredients, wholesome sauces and and house toasted spices and spice mixes. All of our food is freshly-prepared on the premises with a lot of love care and affection. Keeping in mind the ancient Indian cultural saying "Athithi Devo Bhava" (Guest is God) we put our guest ahead of us and thank you for patronizing our establishments. If you have any special needs, desires or requirements, we are just a phone call away. We will do our best that we can to please you.
