We are a fan of NaanStop and order from here regularly for takeout. They have a great selection and always serve big portions with a ton of extra rice. The spice levels are all spot on and the best part is they are super mindful of allergies; if you have a peanut allergy this is a safe place to eat. I love their chai tea too. Highly recommend trying this place out!

Amazing food and customer service! It is a bit pricier but the portion size is enough for 5 people. Keep up the good business!

Very nice staff and the food was plentiful. The wait staff was very helpful with suggestions. The food was very tasty and the garlic naan was fresh and flavorful.

Excellent chicken korma and garlic naan. Better than the Indian food we have in Austin TX, best I've had in the U.S. outside of the west coast.

We love Naanstop in Durham! It's a small unassuming hole in the wall, but the food will not disappoint for sure! This place is run by a passionate family. The flavors are authentic and true to the original classics! And unlike most of the places where the buffet is pathetic this buffets actually refreshingly tasty and great value! Even my kids love to obliterate the buffet! 😃

As of 6 Sep 2021 the buffet has still not returned although the you can certainly order from the menu for carry out. Usually eating at a buffet automatically means the quality of the food will be lower than just ordering an entree. Being inexperienced with Indian/Punjabi cuisine I tried a little bit of everything at first. Some things you’re going to like more than others but in this case I really enjoyed everything and wound up going back for a little bit of everything two more times. EASILY the best buffet meal I’ve ever had.

Just visited for the first time tonight. Dine in. The food was absolutely amazing, and the staff were very welcoming. Places like this deserve your business these days

Food is really good, however getting take out/to-go sometimes becomes overwhelmed and they need several extra minutes to have it ready. Delays for me have ranged from 5mins to 15mins. If you are ordering the food online, it's super easy and convenient. They will also sporadically email helpful coupons

EXCELLENT! I love their food. I always get their butter chicken and plain naan. I always get discounts emailed to me too its great. COVID Comments: I feel safe picking up food here. The staff is always masked and socially distanced.

Amazing place to get lunch takeout! I love their new vegetarian lunch box option that you can order online and come pick up. Only $10 and comes with a plentiful amount of food that is so delicious. I was very impressed and will absolutely return time and time again!

I am impressed by the taste and flavours of the food here. It was by far the best indian food I have had in US. I ordered paneer and dal makhni, it very indian punjabi dhaba style food, so delicious. Did not order any non-veg so can’t say for that. I hope they open their branch in charlotte so that I don’t have to travel 2hrs for good punjabi food. I wish they do not change their recipe and keep doing great work. ☺️

This was my first time ordering from NaanStop. I've seen it many times, but really thought it was a fast food kind of place. We were craving Indian food today, so we got online and decided to take a chance. We ordered the Garlic Naan, Chicken Methi Malai, and the Muttar Paneer. Oh. My. Gosh. I can't believe we didn't try this place sooner! It. Is. Ahmazing! I'm glad i'm sharing...because I could easily sit here and eat everything all by myself! Highly recommend!

The vegetarian lunch boxes were pretty good, and plenty of food. The paneer was especially good. The saag was meh though. It wasn't the best Indian food I've ever had, but pretty good.

One of the best places in Durham for Indian food. The entrées were perfectly seasoned and spiced. You get an ample amount of food as well. Of course don’t forget the naan. They also serve a lunch buffet. Get there early because there’s limited seating. We are definitely going back.👍🏼👍🏼

A special treat during a rough time! Exquisite flavors and gracious service. We enjoyed three vegetarian entrees, samosas, and tea, all available through curbside pickup. There was a small mixup with my online order, which was immediately and kindly rectified. I look forward to joining you again for lunch in your dining room. Thank you!

NaanStop serves up solid food, friendly atmosphere, and convenient location. With food convenient for plant based patrons and carnivores alike, you can get something to serve most tastes. It can get very busy, and it's not a place for a quiet intimate meal. But if you're looking for good Indian food and you're near the Duke University Medical Center, NaanStop is the answer. Plus, the name is a pun. How can you not like that?

We were all very happy we chose NaanStop for dinner! The food was amazing and worth the wait. It was a full house the entire time we were there. Our waiter was very nice and answered any questions we had.

My friend and I ordered Naan Stop for lunch last week and absolutely loved the name! When we got our food we were so happy with it. It made my tastebuds SO happy! I went with my family on the weekend because, duh! It is just So So scrumptious when we came in for dinner. Everyone was so friendly and such quick service! The atmosphere was so nice, it was like having dinner with family. Absolutely recommend!

Can’t say enough good things about this Indian restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing, every time and the service exceptional. We brought food home one night and it dropped on the ground. I called them and asked if they could make us a new batch and said it would be on the house. They really appreciate their customers and their food is downright the best Indian I’ve had.

Our new favorite Indian lunch buffet in the triangle. It is clean, simple, delicious, and the employees are really nice. We especially love the masala tea. It makes an amazing lunch even better!

Our new favorite Indian restaurant. The buffet is great, with a nice variety of dishes and good spice level. They bring fresh naan to your table and everyone is very friendly.

Was a great first time dining experience! The staff were friendly and very professional. The Lunch Buffet, was awesome! Free parking available in garage behind the store, just pay attention to signs posted not all spaces are open to the public.

Easily the best Indian food in Durham and one of the better restaurants around too. This is my go-to for take out, and based on how busy it was tonight, it's a lot of people's go-to! But don't worry, they're still fast! Don't miss out on this great restaurant.

This restaurant is so cozy inside! All dark wood and exposed brick. The perfect place to grab a glass of wine. Becky is so attentive to her patrons and very friendly. I've been back multiple times already and will continue to keep coming back.

Really loved the lunch buffet here. I’ve been to 90% of the Indian buffers in the area (Including the countless number around Cary) and this is definitely in the top 3. Lots of variety, spicy and non-spicy dishes, great environment, multiple dessert options, etc. I’ll most certainly be back.

I had dinner, so can not comment on the buffet. Dinner was excellent. The restaurant smells delicious and the food tastes just a good. The vegetarian options are numerous, maybe the best I've ever seen. I eat at many Indian restaurants while traveling, and this is my new favorite.

Good food and felt back in India in Punjabi dhaba. Nothing to beat this aroma. Just suggest to get more Goat dishes.

Excellent option for lunch! Good selection of tasty food on the buffet. I've only been here twice, but I'll be back. The naan were some of the best I've had. Attentive service, despite it being very crowded. Also had a good selection of vegetarian dishes.

Amazing, authentic and tasty Punjabi food. I love the taste and the price was reasonable. Taste was far better than any other Indian restaurant in the area.

There aren't many Indian restaurants in Durham so I'm REALLY glad this one is so great. I haven't gone for buffet yet but so far every time I've eaten in or taken food out the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. I recommend highly. I really want to go in to try their buffet soon.

My husband and I love Indian food and are pretty picky about where we eat it because some places taste fresh and delicious but most don’t. When we found this place we fell in LOVE! Everything is so fresh and colorful and bursting with taste. The menu is well thought through and you can tell everything is made from scratch and with love. The service was wonderful, welcoming, and friendly. We were so taken care of and had everything we needed/wanted. We have told all our friends about it and will def. be frequenting this place as much as possible whenever we are in the area!

The food catered from here was awesome! They gave it to me in an insulated container that kept it hot for 12 hours. Even the fried foods were still crispy. I will be ordering from here again in the future.

Amazing Indian buffet for the price. The buffet food is always fresh and customer service e is very efficient. Your water will never run out. They also give you Naan with the buffet. Best Indian buffet in Durham, hands down.

The food here is amazing! I can go on and on about how good it is but you need to try it. If you are in Durham and want Indian food, order from here. This is one of the best Indian restaurants in the Triangle.

Amazing flavor! I ordered the lamb curry, extra spicy. They seriously brought the heat! The heat didn't detract from the flavor profile at all. I've enjoyed a lot of incredible Indian cuisine in my day and this ranks up there with the best. The bullet naan was a great compliment to this meal.

Very good. Wife had the coconut soup and she loves it. I just am not a fan of coconut. I had some lamb something and loved it just forgot what its called. The garlic naan was delicious I could eat it by the truck load.

This is great family owned place. I enjoy taking coworkers here for lunches if they have never tried Indian before. They have great lunch special where you can have 3 different dishes, rice and naan. Nice way to get people to try it, or those who just can't make up there minds.
