This restaurant is well rated on TripAdvisor so we decided to try it out. It was one of the few places in Bophut that wasn't overly pushy on trying to get us inside which was actually a relief. We went for Thai dishes which were very nice and priced at a reasonable level. Throughout our time we were well attended... More

The 4 of us all ordered different meals. I had a vegetarian panning curry which was very tasty. My wife stuck to Tum Yum soup and said it was delicious. Further meals were sweet and sour chicken and a different chicken dish. All very tasty. Same with the appetizers. We'll be back here for sure

We had selected Nirvana the previous day, having walked the street looking for a traditional Thai meal. We were not disappointed. Pleasant service, comfortable chairs overlooking the beach and very tasty food. The service was fine and you could see the meals being prepared and freshly cooked to order. We will be back again. Oh, and we saw the ribs... More

The reason I'm giving this 4 stars is purely for the fact that my husbands steak was amazing-cooked to perfection in a lovely sauce. Mine however was a different matter. I ordered the calamari salad which came with mixed salad and a honey and lime dressing. As dressings are always hit and miss I asked for the sauce on the... More

Great food , waitress was great... we waited a very long time for our food... the owner seemed to apologise to every table ( maybe regulars) except ours for some reason... , when we mentioned we were waiting a long time ( more than an hour) we were just told "it's on it's way)...It was like he went out of...

What a load of crap. If you hadn't started of with a blatant lie saying that you arrived first when in fact you arrived last and complaining that everyone was getting their food before you, you might have been treated in a different manner. I understand that when you have two tried, hungry complaining kids time will stand still and... More

The restaurant is excellent. On our arrival we had our starters (Thai beef salad, which was very tasty) in the entrance as the beachside was full. Afterwards we moved to the beach for our main courses (panaeng gai and fried sea bass). The service was really very nice and the owner himself made sure you felt comfortable. Very good value...

We've always been quite happy coming to Nirvana although it didn't seem quite as busy this year. We walked in without a reservation and were able to get a table on the balcony overlooking the beach. This was our third visit in as many years, the staff haven't changed and you know you are going to get a decent quality... More
