This place is known for Indians (locals and visitors) that like real Indian foods (I,e: too much Indian spices without any consideration for people with sensitive taste to less spicy food.

I visited the Nawabi Khana recently with a friend. I have reviewed this restaurant about 18 months ago. At that time, I wrote that the food was good and you needed to book ahead as it gets very busy at the weekends. Sadly, the situation has changed. I visited on a Friday, when I expected that I would have to... More

I am sure the chicken was of previous day and it was not smelling fresh. Doubting their abilities I did not wanted to take much risk and ordered... More

This Indian restaurant serves primarily northern Indian food which is less spicy than the stereotypical southern Indian restaurant. Where as many reviewers comment that the food is the best in Dar, I would beg to differ especially when you consider value for money.

I visited with friends for dinner. Service was relatively quick and the food was OK. I wasn't overly impressed with the restaurant decor but the wait staff were courteous and eager to serve. In all honesty, this restaurant, to me, was just OK at best. I can't highly recommend it but it wasn't bad either.
