Nawaz Indian Cuisine Serves Solid, No-Frills Indian Cuisine in West Phoenix

One hopes that Nawaz Indian Cuisine, way out in the suburbs on West Dunlap Road, can limp along until the light-rail line reaches the restaurant later this year. Nawaz isn't the best Indian restaurant in the Valley. But this casual Indian eatery has plenty of options to appeal to fans of authentic Indian cuisine. Nawaz offers a variety of appetizers and entrées, from vegetarian sautés to chicken curries. Main dishes are more than reasonably priced, and service (one orders at a counter, and food is delivered) is friendly enough.
