would not recommend

we went there on a restaurant dot com gift certificate. the mgr/owner/waiter tried to deny it saying it wasn't good for our meal. we read the fine print and knew he was wrong. he would not come back to our table when requested. the other waiter said to just go. we left the appropriate amount and left. this guy works like the insurance industry, just deny all claims from the start.

Food has changed, but still a good deal for their lunch buffet

As the previous reviewer stated, the food has definitely changed and not for the better. Whether or not the chef has left, the tastes of the curries and tandoori chicken have been off. I usually go there for their lunch buffets and this time around I noticed that the food tasted more on the bland side. The tandoori chicken wasn't cooked thoroughly, still bloody and red close to the bone. Either one by themselves would've made me go somewhere else, but the bloody chicken is downright dangerous. Heck, even the garlic naan, which is pretty basic, wasn't good. Too doughy and a little soggy. There are a number of other Indian restaurants out there so I think that I'll be checking up on those more often now.

i went to nawab of india last weekend and the food did not taste the way it used to. i found out that the chef no longer works there.i dont know if i will be coming back to nawab. he made the best indian food i have ever tasted! i used to go there every weekend! but fortunately i learned the chef of nawab is opening his own restaurant called ""Copper Chimney."" it is in Woodland hills. I can't wait till it opens!

Probably the best indian food in LA

Keep in mind though that they can get busy, and when they are busy their service is not very good. But, if you come early or on a weeknight, you will not have to worry about service being an issue. The food is high quality - a lot higher quality than your average indian restaurant. If you wanted to judge the place on it's Mango Lassi, then Nawab would get the Gold Medal. Their Mango Lassi (yogurt mango drink) is the best I have ever had. Their nan is terrific, rice is delicious, and they have plenty of vegetarian options, along with some nice seafood and chicken dishes. The waitstaff is very friendly as well.

Dinner was good, but skip the buffett

We had a couple nice dinners and were very impressed with the flavors. Nice decor, traditional indian restaurant - white table cloths, traditional music, etc. A little pricey compared to other establishments close by with equivalent or better food (Jaipur on Pico/Westwood by Westside Pavilion). Dinner menu is Vegetarian Friendly. Food is extra oily - even for indian. Awesome sinks in the bathrooms, just FYI.

We returned for their lunch buffett and were very very disappointed. Modest selection. Not Vegetarian Friendly - 1 dish. Our water glasses both had lipstick on them. We requested new glasses and both came dirty (one with more lipstick). Silverware was dirty too. Maybe it was a bad day for them, maybe a lunch staff thing, or maybe we could just see when it was light out.

More expensive than it's competition - no good reason why. Santa Monica rent?

Would consider going back - the Mali Kofta and Korma was very good. Still, Electric Karma on 3rd St near the Grove is better and more fun for dinner. Jaipur's (on Pico) lunch buffett is infinitely better regarding food, selection, and cleanliness.

Best Indian Buffet

Best Indian buffet in LA! The food is amazingly good for such a reasonable price and they have more choices than the other restaurants. I would prefer eating the buffet at Nawab as opposed to dinner at many other places.

horrible food!!

We love Indian food but this place is one of the worse Indian restaurants that we have ever been to. First our food arrived late and cold. Our Poori (deep fried bread) was soft and soggy. The tandoori mushrooms tasted like bad meat. The Chicken Tikka Masala was average. To complete the horrific meal, The Raita (cucumber yogurt) had a funny smell like sour milk. We should have known better than to have eaten it because both of us became sick after our meal.
