The Indian subcontinent is a giant piece of naan that drifted slowly through the ocean before slamming its flavors into Eurasia. Align your face’s tectonic plates to give the continent a nibble in return with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian fare and wine at Nawab Indian Cuisine in Williamsburg, Newport News, Norfolk, or Virginia Beach.
Voted Best Indian Cuisine of Hampton Roads by the readers of The Virginian Pilot, Nawab Indian Cuisine cajoles palates into contentedness with a menu sprawling with a variety of seafood, vegetable-based plates, and chicken. Guests can begin a subcontinent saunter with an appetizer of saffron lime mussels flavorfully swimming in a river of aromatic coconut broth ($8). A glass of 2006 French pinot noir ($8) augments the tomato-and-cream-sauce-slathered chicken tikka masala ($14.50), and an Argentinean chardonnay ($7) reliably sidekicks Goan shrimp curry ($17). Each of Nawab’s four locations envelops guests in a warm ambience festooned by elegant flourishes of Indian art or vibrant Technicolor paintwork. The high ceilings encapsulate visitors in an abundance of space and allow plenty of room for tall humans or dozens of babies stacked on top of each other.
