“Great casual vibe”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Food is great, really great. Better than most Indian restaurants in this part of the city. Staff are hospitable and friendly. This is not a formal sit down place, it's a cocktail, hanging out on the sofa around the bar and the interior water features then heading to a table for dinner. Small courtyard in the front has tables and nice lighting for an evening meal with friends.

I recommend the lamb chops as the stand out dish but I honestly hadn't had a bad meal here in 7 years.

Shares the same chef as the more formal restaurant across Wilshire but the menus are diverging more over time as Nirvana becomes more casual and late night focused.

This place has the best Indian food ever! Reminds me of my favorite dishes from India. The ambience is spectacular.
