The goal of Nawab Fine Indian Cuisine is to provide authentic and genuine Indian cuisine to patrons at reasonable prices, and for Wilmington locals, this longstanding restaurant accomplishes the goal nicely. Boasting a relatively new locale along Market Street, Nawab Fine Indian Cuisine is the destination of choice for something global and distinctively different in the heart of the Cape Fear region.
The menu is extensive and a bit hard to navigate for Indian food newcomers, but happily, extensive descriptions accompany every varied dish to point new patrons into the right direction. Categorized by appetizers, soups and salads, breads from Tandoor, and unique entrees, (like vegetarian, lamb, shrimp and scallop, and goat), patrons will have a wide range of options, from start to finish. It’s easy to get lost in translation and not sure where to start, but patrons can always chat with their knowledgeable and friendly servers, who can both recommend dishes and give suggestions on spice levels. Diners can also head to the buffet, which is a wonderfully global combination of all of the top delicacies, from perfectly prepared lentils to fresh cucumber salads.
Delectable and different, Nawab Fine Indian Cuisine is a perfect introduction to Indian fare for both Wilmington vacationers and locals alike.
