Great food and selection, beautifully decorated

It was a bit too chilly and dark to sit on the roof, so we opted to sit indoors. While we were the ONLY diners (which was slightly awkward), we chalked it up to the relatively early dining time (for India). Food was very delicious, we ordered ala carte instead of thalis so we could choose our... read more

The special thali is big eb Enough for two people and full of new and interesting veg dishes to try. My biryiani was... More

Went to the rooftop restaurant for lunch and had the best Thali so far in India. Shared the 'Special Thali' with my girlfriend which was plenty of food and featured 4 different curries, 2 parathas, cumin rice and a sweet dessert. Cooked by young and friendly Nepalese chef. Recommend it!

This place has the usual fort views, plenty of comfortable seating and check out the Rama Temple which is part of the hotel/restaurant complex. They have a small service there at around 18.45 every day. Restaurant service is quick and friendly, if sometimes a bit confused, portions are huge and prices not the cheapest for a pure veg place.

This restaurant is in the on the fringe of the old city, next to a temple. The rooftop is relaxed and relatively quiet after the frantic and noise of the surrounding market. The food is tasty and well prepared and the view of the fort is impressive. Worth a visit to relax for lunch after visiting the fort or shopping... More

I do not know how to review this place. When we went to Nirvana, having seen it's great reviews on TripAdvisor, we were expecting SOMETHING. We got no waiters for the 30 min we sat there, despite them knowing that we are sitting there. Just weiirrdd!!!

We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, dinner (and a packed lunch to our next destination) at the Nirvana cafe. The setting is spectacular. The service was very good and Puran is an excellent waiter and cook!! Food was safe - we had no problems - and Puran could explain the ingredients in the meal, when we were unsure. A restaurant not to... More
