A quirky establishment with an eclectic interior. A combination of Thai, Indian and Malaysian cuisine makes for many and varied options. Food was good but not awe inspiring.

Ate here with visiting family. The usual excellent food and pleasant experience as I have had a dozen times before. Had the usual barramundi wings, curries, and noodles. Was all good - as was the unexpected belly dancer cameo!

The food is always great at Nirvana. Unfortunately the service was slow and some of our table did not get their food until everyone else had finished. This aside, it was a good evening.

Sensational. Cannot fault the menu, staff or service. Take the opportunity to try something new from the drinks menu - always an experience and staff are happy to mix something new for you. Excellent choice for couples or groups- I often bring interstate colleagues in...More
