Worth a trip up the coast!

We visited Nirvana late in our week in St Kitts. We had had some pretty average meals but were over the moon to find Nirvana. The venue was beautiful, the staff attentive and the food was outstanding, worth every penny. Would recommend to anyone.

I celebrated my 50th birthday with friends and family on March 14. 2015 in the Private Room. Food was great, service was excellent (Raj) did a great job. The only problem we encountered was poor light in the room. It was not bright enough to take good pictures. If the lightening could be improved, the room will be perfect for... More

We started with a very tasty and delicate broth creamed corn with tender morsels of chicken followed by heavenly morsels of fried vegetable won ton served with sweet and sour with a kick of heat. The main entree was fluffy steamed rice, lovely grouper in a coconut Thai curry which was heaven on earth, a bit spicy but delicious, and... More

We participated in the Caribbean Cooks Class while visiting St. Kitts and the Fairview Great House. It was a great way to spend the morning. Chef Lawson explained some of the basic elements of Caribbean cooking and then prepared a meal of creole fish, jerk pork, rice and peas, and coconut bread pudding. He explained each step and provided helpful... More

My wife had made a reservation for lunch on Sunday. Unfortunately nobody told her that they only had a buffet, and not their regular menu. When we arrived, they handed us all their regular menu. Several members of our party had specific items in mind. Again, there was no mention of the buffet. It was only after we began to... More

I regret to report that this is an excellent restaurant. Why? Because that will make more people go to it. Perhaps it will become cluttered with tourists and students and cause reservations to become a "must". There are lots of Chinese restaurants on St. Kitts and the many I have been to range from good to bad. Nirvana is superb... More

Nirvana is located at the historic Fairview Great House just outside Basseterre and has recently brought in new management and a new chef. The results are terrific! There is finally good quality Chinese food to be had on the island. We visited twice during the past week and enjoyed every dish we had (spring rolls, crispy fried pork, fried wantons,... More

Hint: Turn inland immediately opposite the unpretentious sign for Nirvana. There are no arrows or directions and you will think you are on the wrong road. Two or three hundred yards on the left is the Fairview Manor, clearly a stop on the cruise ship line tour of the old plantation. We went right for the restaurant, so we don't... More
