This is one of the best Indian restaurants anywhere in the Triad. There are some good Indian places, some really bad, some okay, but this is the absolute best. I haven't eaten elsewhere since discovering it last year. I eat lunch here once a week, sometimes twice. Its high end quality, great prices, and its always full of Indians eating... a very good sign!
My sister and husband usually eat in high end restaurants and their favorite hobby is cooking so I became worried when my sister asked me to choose a restaurant for us to go to.
I am new to the area and so had no idea where to go. I compared reviews at different sites and choose this Indian restaurant not knowing if I had chosen well.
Long story short my sister had a meal with lamb and I had a vegetarian meal. She loved her dish and I mine. The use of spices was just right, not to much to hide the taste of the food we were eating and not too little to not give the food some zing.
The quantity of food given was enough to be satisfied and yet have enough left over for a meal for one person. I must report that being a vegetarian I did finish my sisters lamb/spinach meal this morning for breakfast. This is how much I loved the food.
This food is north Indian cooking for those needing to know.

We had dinner on a Saturday evening. No reservations needed.
Pros: Food excellent. Service very good. Friendly staff. Lighting level for evening dinner was superb. So many
restaurants are lit up like a high school cafeteria. Here, the lighting was very appropriate for the time of evening. Price vs. quality, excellent.
Cons: Beer and wine only. Restaurant website has no link for reservations. Emailed reservation request bounced back -- 'mailbox full'. (Mailbox still full six days later. If you care about your customers, why not answer their mail?)

Have eaten my favorite cuisine (Indian) on the West Coast and know my way around the menu. The Lamb Saag @ Newab was very good, as were other items on their menu. Prepared properly I prefer an amount of red pepper to ""pinch"" and sprinkle over my food and they obliged. Aloo Gobhi, right amount of ginger. Veg. Biryani, flavorful. Garlic Nan, tender and flaky. Have been and will continue patronage of this fine establishment.

We tried out Nawab for lunch buffet on first ever trip to Winston-Salem. Nawab is definitely an excellent representation of Indian cuisine. The buffet items were a little mild for me but most patrons were non-Indian so I can see the reason. I made it a point to try a little bit of each item and the cooking was quite competent. It was nice to start with some onion and potato bhajia. Both the vegetarian and non-vegetarian items were adequately spiced and not oily. I especially liked the lighted chamber to keep the tandoori chicken at temperature, I wish other Indian restaurants would copy this idea. Chicken Makhni was just right and also the Navratan Korma. The staff was friendly and visited our table several times. Kheer could have used some nutty additions plus some papad would have been great! The only reason I can not give it a five star rating is because I have not tried it for dinner and therefore can not comment on their expertise with biryani's and Indian style seafood. If you are bored with the usual meat and potatoes this place is an excellent addition to ""Foodiversity"" in Winston-Salem. The buffet is priced to compete even with ordinary greasy fast food. I would have no second thoughts to recommend Nawab in Winston-Salem to anyone.
