Relaxed and tasty

Caught up with friends for a meal. Their menu offers a variety of Indian, Malaysian and Thai food. The serves are a good size to share.

Casual dining, lovely ambience with Asian / Middle Eastern decor. We experienced friendly attentive service and a choice of Asian spicy food, generous serves at reasonable prices. Overall a great night topped off with great martinis! A must go place when in Darwin!

We ate here mid week, just wanting an easy dinner, not a feast. The location and exterior at night were a little disconcerting, I'm not sure I would have been comfortable to walk there from the cbd on my own, through the doors and the decor is as 'fusian' as the menu. Really chilled atmosphere, although we were shown through... More

Decided to give this a try tonight as we hadn't been before. What a disappointment. Service was ok but the food was absolutely abysmal. Not fresh, tasted like it was out of a packet. I had the chicken vindaloo and companion had tandoori prawns. It was not tandoori, that;s for sure. The prawns arrived bathed in a pink, tasteless gloop... More

Last night we went with a few friends to nirvanas. It was not our first time there and it is always great but last night it was just alright because of the waiter. The food was fantastic. We asked the waiter for enough rice and bread for all off us but he couldnt really help us. He hardly came back... More

I had a pleasant meal here, but nothing special - a stir fry and a duck curry, plus shared some spiced quail for entree. The place is darkish and kinda dated. Service - nothing especially good or bad. The vibe OK, but not anything that stands out. No live music playing while we were there - maybe that's why I... More

Tuesday night in Darwin....I decided Nirvana was my restaurant of choice, we haven't been out in Darwin for years and dinner was just as good as I remembered. There was only the 2 of us, unfortunately this means that you don't get to taste as many dishes.. Staff were friendly and attentive, meal was delicious...only sadness was that we had... More
