“The best south Indian restaurant in Japan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

I've been to several Indian restaurants in Japan. However, most of them lack the orginality in taste and flavor. Indian food in Japan has undergone vast changes to the point of sometimes being quite bland.

Nirvanam on the other hand delivers exactly what food lovers seek - ethinic (south) Indian food. Their buffet on the weekdays is simply amazing, reasonably priced, wide variety, that keeps changing almost every other day. Neat, tasty and hospitable, I have enjoyed visiting them both with family or friends and for business dinners/lunches. Thanks to them, I can satisfy those strong urges to feel and taste great Indian food.

“Best South India resturant in Tokyo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

There are many Indian resturants in Tokyo, but Nirvanam definitely is the best South Indian resturant. The food is authentic south Indian food and not customized to the local taste. A lot of the spices are imported from India. The buffet is value for money.

“Best Indian restaurant in Japan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2010

This is by far the best Indian restaurant in Japan. Their buffet is far better than any other buffet I have had in Japan. They are a very different Indian restaurant, serving very authentic south Indian food. I personally don't like most of the Indian restaurants in Tokyo because they customize the taste, but this one I found is most authentic one and almost similar in taste to the ones you get in South India.
