“Good Food, Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We decided to go to this restaurant after walking past in most evenings and seeing it completely full.
We booked a table the day before which is advisable but probably not necessary.
The staff are what really makes this place, friendly, approachable, chatty - and they can't do enough to help.
On arrival we were given cold towels and complimentary welcome drinks and snacks. Prior tour starter we were also given a mini bruschetta each too. All really nice touches that made it stand out from other places we had visited.
The food was above average but nothing amazing but again in comparison to some other places we had been to, the standard vs the price was exceptional. A very cheap meal for what we got.
They also have nightly entertainment and on this night it was traditional Balinese dancers who were very good and spent a lot of time talking to customers and having pictures taken afterwards.
Would recommend and definitely go back.

“Beautiful Food and Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a fantastic restaurant. Prices are so good and the staff and wonderful. We had dinner twice there in our 5 night holiday. Staff remembered us and we even chatted with the owner (an Aussie) In our chat with the staff we mentioned that we were there for my birthday and out came a cake and candle and they were all singing happy birthday. They had the fire dancers there and what a sight. The restaurant is very eye catching too with the light up trees.
Great experience. looking forward to our next visit.

“Great affordable family venue with magic staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

So far our family of 5 has eaten here twice during our Sept 2012 trip in Bali. This place is a must for families. Great affordable food with beautiful, friendly owners & staff. Nyoman & Neil, Putu and all the waitresses make this a great family experience. Its very personal and they take good care to ensure you enjoy every moment whilst at Nirvana. Food is very good and the "fire dance" is a great touch. Free welcome margaritas for adults and slushy for kids, followed by free tasting spring rolls for all. Wife loves the ikan pepes(fish in banana leaf) and I enjoyed the freshest, tastiest nasi goring! Kids had grilled BBQ prawns, which they took back to get chef to peel for my young bloke who was struggling (thanks Rosa), calamari and fried prawns also yummy according to the older kids. Any family staying in seminyak should visit. You'll enjoy the experience. Thanks Nirvana!!! Jon, meg & kids. Aus,

“Fantastic food great sauces and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We decided to have our five year olds birthday night at Nirvana and were not disappointed. It's a popular restaurant so best to book we did and mentioned it was for our sons birthday. When we arrived they had decorated around our table with balloons and gave attention to our son despite being busy with a crowd watching the eagles v collingwood match. Meals were nice I had the duck liver pâté which was wonderful the duck for main which was ok but had a great sauce and apple pie for dessert that was a highlight for me and one of the best ever. After dessert the staff dimmed the lights and all came out singing happy birthday and carrying a small cake with a candle and popped a few of the balloons just for extra effect. It was a memorable night.
