Nizam, a shortened version of Nizam-ul-Mulk, meaning Administrator of the Realm, was the title of the native sovereigns of Hyderabad, India, from 1719 till 1948. By the middle of the 18th century, the scions, known as The Nizams, had quickly surpassed the Mughals ruling a vast dominion of about 125 million acres in south India. They were among the wealthiest people in the world and were fond patrons of literature, art, architecture, culture, jewelry, and rich food. Come join us at The Nizam’s where our food and service will take you back in time and make you feel like a true Nizam. With the most culinary experience in Indian Cuisine in Southern New Jersey, you will be impressed whether you join us for lunch, dinner, or have us cater your party.

    The food was delicious and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. We had the Samosas and the Veggie Snack Platter for appetizers, I had the Goat Vindaloo and my husband had the Fish Vindaloo. Unfortunately our server left a lot to be desired. He was curt, refused to explain the menu to my husband (it was his first time having Indian food and the QR scanner menu had no explanation of any of the dishes), and acted as if he didn't want us there. After slamming a real menu on the table and saying "Here's desserts." when my husband inquired, we decided it was time to go. I will say all of the other staff at the restaurant were very nice, so if you go hopefully you won't have the guy who waited on us. We will get takeout from here since the food is delicious and my husband wants to try more of their dishes, but I doubt we will dine in-person again.

    This was the fifth or sixth time we’ve been here in the last 8 months. This place is just perfect for Indian cuisine. There is something for everyone and the staff are always so helpful when making decisions on food items. They are also very friendly and, when the restaurant is not too busy, allow you to enjoy discussion time at the table without feeling rushed to leave. But overall, the food is just awesome!

    The food was quite good, with fresh ingredients and good flavor. I asked for a dish to be mild, but it was more spicy than expected. The waiter was indifferent, and planned to bring my soup just after delivery of the main course, though I had asked for it to be brought first. I canceled the soup, but then the first bill still included it. With proper training of the waiter, all would have been quite good.

    It was our first time to this establishment and we did enjoy the food. Our server made a mistake with the order but he did apologize twice. The owners removed him, which I think was a bit much, it's human to make mistakes. Bottom line, my guest and I will be back in the future and we hope to see that same server again, he was the best.

    We ordered appetizers, which came rather quickly. Our main course arrived before we had finished the appetizers. Once our food was delivered to the table it was extremely difficult to get our server for some additional flatware (spoons). After we got the spoons and ate our main course we needed some containers for our leftovers. Again it was difficult to get our server’s attention. We asked for containers and the check at the same time and that again took awhile. We liked the food and the new location, but the service was lacking. I hope they can get it worked out.

    Love the new locale (in the old Carrabba's) They did a great job with the interior; very clean and comfortable. Service attentive. Food is outstanding - best Indian cuisine in S. Jersey, hand's down. The tandoori is the best we've ever had. This visit the five of us shared double orders of gobhi manchurian (a favorite) and chicken seekh kebab, then for entrees: tandoori chicken and shrimp, chicken makhani, lamb saag, and lentils - all fantastic! The naan was a favorite (and we got more to-go) Can't wait to try other dishes - will be back!!

    We love the new space! I took my family for the first as they have not been. We enjoyed our meal and look forward to many visits in the future. I tried the Chicken Tikka Masala, it was awesome. We also had the Palak Channa, Chicken Tikka, and the vegetable snack platter, which were all delicious.

    We have been going to Nizam’s since their first location. It is always phenomenal. We love our dishes that we typically get and then you get something new and BAM..you are blown away by how good the new dish is. Last night it was the lamb shank, chicken 65 and a special curry. So delicious, full of flavor and authentic.

    The best Indian food we have eaten since staying at the Oberoi in Ranthanbore. The chef is highly skilled and may be the best Indian chef in the US. A simple warning though. This restaurant is just a shopping center location and is BYOB. If you need beer or wine to cool the spicy food, bring it. The locals know, and most tables sported one or two bottles or six-packs.
