Unusual food, very well presented and tasty

I recently visited this restaurant with some friends I use to work with. I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was very nicely presented and full of flavour. The service was excellent and the cost was extreme competitive for what we ordered. Definitely worth a visit and I would certainly return.

The restaurant is located in the Creative Quarter in Nottingham, which is also the Hockley area of Nottingham next to the city centre. The restaurant is a basement restaurant can be frustrating to get into to and once you are in if you are unlucky then you find no one as the waiting staff haven't noticed you. Once you are... More

Don't let the 'basement' thing put you off - it's actually a lovely light room. The service is, as others have said, superb - really friendly and relaxed. The early evening and set lunch menus are a bargain.

Five of us dined - mainly vegetarians and one following a gluten-free diet. Food was very good - we had main courses and puddings with a wide variety of drinks. Service was excellent with a nice atmosphere. Good choice of food and nicely done. Very much worth a visit.

We came out of a matinee show at the nearby FM arena and walked up to where we had parked the car. Given the queue at the pay station we decided to go for a walk and have a drink. When we spotted this restaurant. We went in just after 5pm and were the only people in there. Not to... More

Food is great, service is great. This was a wonderful experience, a really nice restaurant that is well worth a visit. Even though we arrived quite late on a Saturday night, the staff and service was great, and the Nasi Goreng was best I have had in a long long time.

Being downstairs on a warm evening is not a great start but the food was quite good. I would have preferred more spice, apart from the pickle with prawn crackers it was all a bit tame.

Went last night for early evening menu. The food was absolutely delicious, the service was both quick and friendly and it was excellent value, given the good sized portions.

The food is very good but the service is the reason to go to this restaurant. The manager came over and spent a good ten minutes discussing Malaysia with one of my housemates who is going there next year. He advised us on where was noisy and quiet to sit in the restaurant and came over to make sure everything... More

This was our second visit to Nada Budaya, albeit the first was such a long time ago, that neither me nor my partner could really recall the experience. In hindsight, there was probably a good reason for this. The place itself is well situated, in the basement of a beautiful building on the outskirts of trendy Hockley. Unfortunately, despite this...
