We have lived in the area for almost four years and have been going round the local takeaways. We tried Nirvana tonight for the first time.

I love to come to this restaurant with my family. I like a Korma as I can't eat spicy foods and I must say its so creamy and the chicken is cooked to perfection.

Never fails to delivery anything other than perfection. Really warm and friendly environment and Faz always goes the extra mile to make your meal the best. Food is always fresh and full of flavour. Wouldn't go anywhere else for a curry! Joe
