Kick back at Nada, a taco & cocktail joint in downtown Indianapolis. Snag guacamole and salsa to share, and dig in to punched-up tacos with margaritas and local craft brews.

Let me start by saying the staff at NADA was fantastic, friendly, kind and attentive! That being said, wow, were we disappointed. I understand that things are a little weird right now, Covid related, but was so unhappy with the revamped menu that we elected to leave and go elsewhere to dine. Please, if anyone from NADA happens to read this review, know we understand you have to adjust your business to survive during these challenging times, but please, if it all possible, bring back some of the items we had hoped enjoy.... chicken enchiladas in the cast iron skillet, the three classic salsas you had before and maybe even the fried chicken. Thanks!

TedE, Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest review and sharing some of your past favorites. We are still serving the Ancho, Verde and Kreeper salsas but added two new friends to join the party--Morita and Molcajete for some new flavors! It is privilege to be able to serve guests during this time, and not something we take lightly. I would like the opportunity to invite you back as my guest. Shoot me an email and lets talk tacos!

Great dinner again. We had the brussel sprouts, beets and pastor tacos. All delicious. My toddler had the quesadilla and fruit and devoured it all!

We were so glad to see Nada reopened in Indy and it did not disappoint on our first visit back. Amazing food and service as always. Our favorite dining spot in downtown Indy by far!

Went to Nada for a daughter/father double birthday dinner 4 of us. Lovely meal and presentation of food. Excellent service! Server and manager gifted us with a couple of desserts with candles for them to blow out🎂 unexpectedly. That made the evening so special and the desserts were super yummy. Thank you all.

Service was good but the server was unsure of key item ingredients. Food was not as good as I expected and needed a little more seasoning. Very small portions, not worth the price. Ambiance was awesome.

This was Nada’s opening after being closed for 6 months due to COVID. My husband and I shared an appetizer, several small plates, and dessert. We started with the queso, a four cheese blend with delicious light crispy chips. Next we had the Empanadas (roasted chicken, soffit with aji verde), the Enchilada Suiza (roasted chicken, tomatillo, oaxaca cheese, creme fraiche), and grilled Mexican street corn (chili mayo, cotija, lime, cilantro). Everything was delicious and attractively plated. As we were filling up we had to next make the decision, whether to order Nada’s reputable tacos or one of their scrumptious desserts. We opted for the churros with the chocolate sauce and housemade cajeta and I have to say we were not disappointed!! Overall I can not say enough about the food, ambiance and friendly, attentive service!!
On another note this was our first time dining out since March. It was great to see that the tables were appropriately spaced out and there are private booths both large and small. I also appreciated that the Nada team followed strict safety guidelines. We had a very delicious meal and relaxing evening, can’t wait to go back!!

What an amazing restaurant! Absolutely delicious! The service was fast, friendly and phenomenal! My husband and I got one streak taco and one pork taco. The meat melted in our mouth and the tacos where all designed specially! We both got a alcoholic beverage which was very hood, I highly recommend this place if you around. The Nachos were to die for and my pets ok so favorite the quesadilla appetizer is something I’d die for!

Best tacos I've had in Indiana. Side dishes were tasty but left a little to be desired. The decor and ambiance are outstanding, however - a really fun and vibrant place to eat a meal. Beverages were excellent as well. A tiny bit on the noisy side (at least on a Saturday night) but well worth a visit!

My wife and I are regular diners at Nada, and this our first experience that rated anything less than five stars. Our server brought me the wrong tequila but assured me more than once it was the right one. I know it wasn’t because I ordered a Platinum and the tequila I was served was gold in color. It took considerably longer than usual to get our food, and it was lukewarm when it arrived. We’ve never been served anything but piping hot food on previous visits. And finally, the flavors of our food were mediocre. Again, every dish we’ve enjoyed in the past at Nada was flavorful and delicious. We’ll remain devoted Nada fans, chalking this one bad experience up to an off night at the restaurant. However, a similar occurrence will call for a difficult conversation with the restaurant manager.

Had a very enjoyable meal with family at Nada. Loved the salsa trio with chips. Guacamole and queso were also good. All the varieties of tacos we had were tasty, especially the carnitas.

Our Waiter, Armando, did a great job, the food was DELICIOUS, and that was the best margarita I’ve had in a long time. We will definitely be back, there’s too much on the menu that we still want to try. The decor is beautiful, there are many details to admire and the seating layout is creative. It’s a beautiful and comfortable environment.

Drinks from the bar were slow as the server kept telling us the bartender was slammed. Food flavor was great of course but options are limited and quantity of food is lacking.

I would recommend out of convenience, it is a good place to go but definitely not a destination for a great meal. Food was just ok at best. They were not overly accommodating to someone trying to keep low carb. In fact, the waiter made a silly comment that one of my options would be to just cheat on the diet. Probably wouldn't go back.

A little pricey for the portions. Service was excellent. My wife and I had the Nadarita marguerita and it was one of the worst marguerita we have ever had. It was way too tart. At $9.50 we expected a lot better.
