Had chicken tikka masala for a change and was disappointed, not a lot of taste and to be honest I’ve had tastier ready meals. The sauce was more like what you get in a cheap Aldi jar. Ate here a few times before and always...More

I promise I will not remove the review nor can trip advisor due to no abusive language, only wish I could say the same about you. How do you expect my staff not to retaliate when you are being rude, racist and sexist against my...More

Once again, we've enjoyed another stunning meal at Nirvana. Faz, the ever-friendly owner, recommended something different for me. I usually go for a madras but wanted something even tastier. He recommended the Sylhet Jalfrezi and I'm glad he did. It had layers of flavour and...More

I have to agree with other people on here who have given an average review. The food lacks taste and the tandoori seems pre-cooked and bland. We do notice these things, you can fool some of the people all the time and all the people...More

We are not here to fool anyone, it's a special offer with the popadoms but doesn't include sauces as there are different varieties some really spicy & their 50p each. Weve never had complaints before regarding us charging for pickles as most Indian restaurants charge...More
