Food Pleasure Zone
Wonderful menu. The lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka massala was absolutely delicious, well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. Both dishes were so delightful and tasty, my toes curled and I went into my very own food pleasure zone.
The staff was very friendly and quite helpful.

Great Lunch Experience
My 19-year old daughter was heading to France for 6 weeks and wanted to eat Indian food before she left. We had a lovely dining experience at Nirvana. Their lunch buffet was delicious. The back room upstairs was relatively quiet and the skylight provided a nice amount of sunshine. I would definitely go back there and recommend the restaurant to others -- the price was reasonable and the food was very good.

Great Indian near Grand Central
Needed someplace good to take an out of town visitor, decided not to go to Curry Hill... this place was super. A bit pricier than other good Indians but no complaints. Excellent food, exquisitely and attentively spiced, and fine service.

Really subtle flavoring...great
Food was terrific. Specifically, chicken korma, peshwari naan, and everything else we tried. The amusing bush (OK I'm not French) was a very nice touch to begin the dinner. Want to go back soon.

We eat here often. The food is great. The service is so friendly, the waitstaff always greets us so warmly. The samosa was a bit doughy this time, too bad. The vindaloo was really really spicy. Next time will order it one degree less if possible. The lamb was good quality. Always look forward to returning.

Nirvana is literally NIRVANA!!!
Loved this restaurant. My vegetarian biryani was sublime. The raita was fresh. The garlic naan was light and cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable- every need was anticipated by the wait staff, but not cloying or intrusive.
I really liked the decor as well.
Just a wonderful experience!

I recoomend this place
Excellent food! The Tandoor veg was spicy and delicious. Excellent Naans as well. Service is attentive and the portions are generous. Its a few blocks away from the Indian restaurant hub on 27th and Lex but is also a cut above many of the restaurants there.

We love this place. The amuse bouche was wonderful, compliments of the chef. Nice way to start the meal. This time we had two more people with us which gave us the opportunity to try even more great dishes. The samosa is one of our favorites and this time we also tried the scallop appetizer. Wonderful dish. We always get the chicken korma and this time we also had the unbelieveably delicious tandoor mahi mahi. The fish was so tender and the flavor profile of the sauce they used was out of this world. Want to try even more dishes the next time we go.

The food was very good but the service is what made this experience even better!

I was very pleasantly surprised with the food here... very tasty, generous portions and very reasonably priced. 1 entree out of 3 were a little disappointing, but the other 2 more than made up for it. Service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry so it was fine. Would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Fabulous Food for a Reunion
Nirvana was the setting for a reunion of old friends over the weekend. We had an early reservation at 6:30. The table was ready right on time. The food was wonderful. There are a wide range of typical Indian restaurant dishes but some amazing specialties too. I had a lamb shank in an onion sauce that was falling off the bone tender. My sister had a selection of vegetarian items that she reported as mouth watering and my niece loved her Lamb Korma. The wait staff were attentive but didn't hover. All in all a perfect evening. I would definitely return and recommend to my friends.

Indian through and through
Nirvana was just what we were looking for in a neighborhood restaurant in the Murray Hill area. Traditional Indian dishes are served in a quiet and traditional setting. Food was good if not spectacular and the service was timely and efficient.

Great Indian in Midtown
Our go to place for wonderful Indian fare. The food and service are excellent. We try to go once a week if at all possible.

Excellent food, excellent value
Nirvana has been consistenly terrific over the years, the food is always fresh and very tasty. You can tell by the clientele that it is also authentic. My only minor cavil is that the furniture is starting to look shabby. But, overall, I would highly recommend this place.
