I can't praise the Nawaaz restaurant highly enough! The food and service were first rate with a huge range of starters and main courses with complementary naan breads and other nibbles. Really first rate dinning experience, we will definitely be back!

Lovely restaurant. Was impressed by the added extras on the house. All my friends were really pleased with our selection. No alcohol but we used the supermarket across the road.

Went to Nawaaz with a group of friends. Had not realised that you could take your own drink, but they had enough to satisfy our thirst. We were given poppadums and dips whilst taking in the menu, swiftly followed by complimentary Onion Bhaji's which were the best I have ever tasted, really light batter - delicious! Subsequent service was a little slow, it they did apologise that it was due to having a large wedding party in the upstairs section. Starters & mains were absolutely fabulous. Everything was so fresh, really tasty, and in some cases really spicy! Excellent value for money, Nawaaz is definitely on the top of my list now for London Road eateries.

We were visiting Leicester for the rugby and booked Nawaaz to finish off our sons 18th celebrations. We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes. One of our party needed to catch a train and ordered 2 starters to speed up his food. They were so accommodating of this and literally ran to the kitchen to start his food first. After placing our order we were then given lots of complimentary food! This was all delicious but as we had ordered enough to satisfy our appetites this extra food was quite a challenge! Ordered 2 large rice, got 4. Ordered 2 naan, got 4!! We were served swiftly and given ice cream desert (their compliment) without being given the chance to look at the desert menu. The manager later admitted that once we had gone he had a full restaurant so that's why he was hurrying us. Despite this, the food was excellent, the waiters lovely and we would definitely eat there again if visiting Leicester. Delicious food and rather entertaining staff.

The staff were polite, helpful and very efficient without any fuss. The food was delicious and well presented. A cut above generic Indian offerings, including the complimentary extras, and the price was amazingly reasonable. Overall we would highly recommend Nawaaz and will be going again. Also very handy for de montfort Hall concerts- a couple of mins walk away.

Our experience at the restaurant was 2nd to none. We had a medical emergency whilst we were there and the owner could not have been more helpful. He had one of his staff drive our friend to the nearest pharmacy, when discovering it was closed he then offered to drive to the hospital. Once we were sorted we had a fantastic meal with fantastic flavours. Customer service was absolutely excellent. Loved the free ice cream. Cost was more than reasonable. Highly recommended.

Good food and friendly staff. Simple unpretentious restaurant. Liked being able to take own wine and not being ripped off for it. Had quite a bit of extra food 'on the house' which we didn't ask for but felt obliged to eat and so felt overly stuffed; they could hold back on some of the gratis dishes. Otherwise a great meal and would go back again at some point.

Excellent staff, good atmosphere and an all-round nice restaurant. The food was good and a great price. We ordered enough to fill us all for u details £10 each. Bring your own alcohol is an excellent idea and overall the experience we good. My dish wasn't as I had hoped but they gave me another dish to apologise, although unfortunately that wasn't amazing either (although I was pretty full at this point). But everyone else enjoyed theirs very much with no complaints at all.
