I have been eating Gulf Region curries for more than 17 years. We are spoiled in Dubai in many ways and one of them is the myriad number of high quality authentic cuisines from around the world. This Jumeirah Plaza branch of Nawab is simply excellent. It's not particularly attractive in terms of decor. There are no fancy accessories. It's rather plain and humble in appearance - a kind of contradiction, if you will, to the rest of this city. However, it's the food that counts and this is where Nawab excells in quality, flavour and mouth-watering temptation. I'm a french frie enthusiast - try Nawab's "masala fries" for a novel appetizer. The chicken dishes are all made from the most tender pieces of chicken breast (no bones!!) so you can concentrate on the rich spice and flavour essences of the currie sauces. When in the mood for a curry in Dubai, head to the Jumeirah Plaza on Beach Road for Nawab. You will not be disappointed! Great take-away too!
We were looking for an Indian food restaurant and found Nawab. We decided to go for it as we love Indian food. The guy recommended the chicken tikka masala and it was just great. We also tried the Hazari kebab and the chicken safrani all were good. Byriani rice and the bread are also tasty. I would definitely eat there again. The value for money and the quantities are just great.
Great Indian food. The Kebab Platter is a must try, curries and rotis were also tasty. Will definitely go there again - Nawab at Bay Central, Dubai Marina.
Restaurants are not just a place to eat for hungry souls. They are also venues where we host guests. All guests are important and a well organized evening at a restaurant goes a long way in cementing relationships. While my guests knew better, the newly opened Nawab Restaurant at Dubai's upmarket Marina promenade area seems clueless. Part of a well known chain with locations across Dubai they seem to have built a reputation over the years which needs to be consolidated - obviously. Unfortunately our evening at this location did everything to let down us patrons & the owners! My wife decided to trust Nawab with an evening to host close guests from abroad and relatives and friends from Dubai. With reservations done well in advance, one would assume any professional restaurant to get the basics right and more. Not here. No, Sir! No way! A makeshift seating arrangement of odd shaped tables was in place. That's it. As our guests settled in the cool evening, my wife quickly placed the order with the manager. What followed was a huge embarrassment to us as hosts. Soup orders, which were never delivered. Starters which tumbled out from the kitchen only to be left to chill in the December cold while the tables awaited crockery! Some guests had plates but no side plates, some had none. No napkins, no spoons, no forks and no knives. Some of these came much later, that too after many reminders. Water bottles lay around the table awaiting glasses which never came for some guests. Grills served without essential accompaniments like light salad and chutneys! Despite repeated requests to the staff to serve orders to all seated guests, no one bothered. Plates were just left randomly parked on the table leaving us to pass them around. My wife had to repeatedly get up, go around with plates, making sure all guests were served. Drink orders were mixed up, they failed to ensure a proper supply of breads and kept people waiting till they became disinterested and distracted. When the brea
