Be sure to plan a visit to Nirvana's lunch buffet, offered 7 days a week from 11:30 to 2:30 pm (12-3 on weekends). It is a fantastic value at just 10 bucks on weekdays and $13 on weekends. At this time, you get to test out an amazing array of Indian dishes. The lunch buffet is such a terrific value as you would never get to enjoy such a variety of dishes at dinner without spending a fortune.

If you are new to Indian food, you will quickly find out that you like some dishes more than others. This is just another reason to visit the buffet first to see what you like. Then next time you visit this restaurant (or any other Indian establishment), you will know just what to order.

Some of the best items commonly found on the buffet like include Veggie Tikka Masala, Saag Paneer, Gobi Matar, Veggie Korma, and Rice Pudding. Of course, Naan is always available as well and it is always fresh and delicious.

Everything here is bursting with flavor and not overly spiced. Unfortunately, some Indian restaurants spice their food way too much and you miss out on all the wonderful individual flavors. All the entrees on the buffet here are pretty mild. Of course, if you prefer super spicy food, you can order a la carte to your desired spice level.


Service at Nirvana is always friendly and professional. The staff is constantly maintaining the buffet line, clearing plates, and providing drink refills. The great service is always one of the highlights of dining here.


The decor here is modern and appealing. This place has a great vibe and the setting is very nice for a lunch date, business meeting, or family gathering. At night, this place takes on a more romantic vibe, thus making it a perfect date night destination.
