Five stars all around – We had lunch at Nirvana and it was, by far, the best Indian food. In addition, the service was truly excellent. Really top notch! We are vegans and so our waiter helped us make selections from the menu and also made substitutions where appropriate. The restaurant is very cozy and the atmosphere was buzzing with other customers enjoying their lunch as well. Definitely worth the visit!
Delightful and Amazing! – Oh my goodness, I absolutely love this restaurant. It is very important to us that when we eat out (especially now) that we choose a place that you have a good combo; good food, good service and the feeling of warmth and welcome! Thank you for making us happy. Can't wait to return. I am planning to have a girls night here and a special party for my boss that is retiring! You guys are really fantastic.
Exquiste Indian Food – We first dined in Nirvana about 2 months ago and have been there 5 times since! . By far, the best Indian food I have had in the city. Everthing about this place is perfect, starting with its location, but my favorites were in the appetizer menu - truly delicious. Do try the malai lamb, which I would rate as the best.
The ambience of the place is very calming and relaxing, with a lounge in the ground floor and a comfortabe and stlishly done up upper floor for dining. The staff are very friendly and provide excellent service. A must visit place in the city.
A Must to Experience - If you are impressed with Excellence! – I decided to use this restaurant to cater my New Year's Eve party. Their website and philosophy first impressed me. Then I met the owner Anil. He really understands the meaning of service and excellence. I looked around and the place is beautifully decorated. I can't wait to eat in. Nirvana's food is exquistie Indian cuisine. My guest went on and on about how good the food was. When I came to pick up the food it was freshly prepared and packed, then at least three servers brought it out to my car and packed it in. The meat is tender and succulent. The spices are fresh and the chuntney is unbelievable! I cannot recommend Nirvana enough, what a perfect name. Thank you for helping to make my party a success.
Nirvana made my would have been 'dull' christmas eve a Night to Remember. Stumbled upon this place whch looked fancy and new, as I was strolling by the neighborhood. Entered in and was greeted and treated special. I had a few glasses of wine, the staff were so friendly and charming it made me feel so comfortable. I had their lamb potato croquettes and rosemary malai kabab for appetizers and then Lamb Nalli gosht for dinner with nan. The best word to describe my entire experience is "DIVINE". All the best Nirvana.
A place to visit again – Last night I went to this restaurant after reading a few reviews on City Search and Yelp and I found this place live up to all those reviews. The food was very delicious and in my opinion does rank at the top.
The place in itself was very trendy with a cozy lounge on the ground floor and a high scale dining place on the first. I ordered their fish and just loved it. It was really soft and was flavorful. Spices were perfect and the texture was appropriate.
Cold Plates – The food was delicious, but the plates were ice cold, so dinner soon became cold & less appetizing. The service was at best sporadic & the waiter brought the wrong bottle of wine chosen from the wine list by our host.
Amazing Food – The top three reasons I go to this place again would be : 1. Food, 2. Food, 3. Food.
The quality and the taste of the food I found at this place is rare to find at other Indian restaurants
Great place for family and friends – This restaurant's interior brings to mind a feeling of freshness, very modern looking decor with clever play of light and a dark wood floor. At the end of the bar, the place extends like a welcoming cape with a beautiful fire place area and comfy sofas. The bar tender makes some extraordinary drinks with Mango juice. Very inviting place for group dinner or lunch AND their food is very delicious. Fish cooked in coconut sauce is amazing. I also tried lamb chops and it was very tender, well marinated and well cooked. I will definitely go back to this place with a lot of friends.
Best Indian Food / Pleasing and comfortable Ambiance – I was pretty excited to find this great indian place in Midtown...loved the food here..Mouth watering appetizers and great tasting food specially the Methi Mattar Malai happens to be my favorite now. Very friendly staff, prompt service, clean place. The interiors are very welcoming. They also have a great lounge area as you enter, best suited for long happy hours on those cozy leather couches with best shaken cocktails. Iam eagerly looking forward to visit again when i'm in the neighborhood.
