I’d seen the not-so-new restaurant Nawab open up at Zamzama Boulevard quite often, as its on a prime location – but reviews from various relatives made me decide not to go to the restaurant. I’m glad I changed my mind last night.

They claim to serve Mughal cuisine. Having not been born in the Mughal era, I can’t really say how authentic that claim is, but they served the awesomest Bombay Aloo last night. As a vegetarian, its hard to find good vegetarian fare at restaurants – and there is only so much cheese pizza one can eat :( – and Nawab fared quite well in that respect. According to my fellow diners, the Chicken Makhani was average, but the Masala Papar and other spicy chicken dish served were quite scrumptious. The ambiance is quite nice, with the clientele comprising mainly of families. The prices are a bit high, but the taste of those potatoes melting in my mouth made it worth the money. Definitely worth checking out.

For those who are new to Karachi, Nawab is located next to Snoopy Ice Cream on main Zamzama Boulevard, adjacent to the new Khaadi outlet.

    It is indeed dificult to find good Indian style vegetble dishes. I have yet to find the perfect Mumbai-ite biryani in the market. I hvaen’t tried the said dish at Nawab’s, but have definitely eaten teh thelay wala’s version, at Rainbow Centre, next to the gosht wala. That by far, is the most authentic Mumbai-ite flavour I have tried to date, with perfect blend of roast corrainder seeds, red chillies and herbs. Scrumptious. Highly recommended when fasting. and dead cheap. Rs. 10 or 15 for a loadful!
