“Never Forgotten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We have been visiting Nirvana for over 14 years and its one of my favourite places in calangute. The food is great but what's most impressive is the brilliant service you get. You feel like you are returning home when you visit nirvana as there are are long line of waiters who remember you and welcome you back. Benjamin and Vivek are always excellent, hard working and efficient. Whether its for a meal or just a drink, nirvana is definitely worth a visit.

“Great staff and food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Having recently arrived home from Goa for the 4th time, the food and staff in this restaurant were as good as ever. Anil and Omar are our favourite barmen, who continue to do a good job.
There is however one downfall to this restaurant and that is the toilets, o my word they need a real make-over, come on Francis smarten them up please!

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Been using this restaurant for seven years now so have seen it grow from a few tables to what it is today. The food is still as good as it was then, there is so much to choose from, Indian, Chinese, pasta, pizza, continental and fish dishes all are excellent. The staff are great and work really hard. Not keen on the owner, he is quite ignorant and doesn't even bother to speak to his customers. The success of this restaurant is definately down to his staff.

“Awesome outdoor eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Nirvana is one of my favourite spots in Calangute. By day it is chilled out and relaxed, by night a lively beach bar - which Anil (the bar manager) runs with amazing efficiency! Great staff and an awesome menu (only a couple of times order were muddled but quickly rectified).
Unlike a number of places the pizza is as good as the curry - excellent. They also do a take out (parcel) option which is great if you are staying nearby and want to have a more low-key evening.
Finally, the outdoor tandoor oven is a must. Love the Paneer Tikka and freshly cooked roti, naan or chapati- yum!
Great people, great atmosphere, great fun!
