We visited the Burger Bar from Restaurant Nirvana.
The burgers seemed delicious, as we saw from the happy faces of other guests.
We just visitd for drinks and a taste of nostalgia as a Live band The FaceBeat played non stop live Beatles songs.

Great evening out in the Seminyak city center.

We were initially cruising 'eat street' , via the usual crumbling footpath, trying to decide on someplace for dinner. It was early on in the evening and the area was very quiet. We liked the look of Nirvana; crispy clean, well set out with separate areas for dining and the wait staff appeared 'switched on' and happy, without being pushy. Of course we opted for the A/c area at the rear as it was one of those highly humid Bali nights. When shown to our table by the waitress we were the only couple in the restaurant , though it's popularity was soon evident as diners seemed to appear from nowhere and it was basically full by the time out first course arrived, an amazing transformation and a great crowd.

It was not hard to see why the Nirvana was so popular, with a live magician performing his tricks at individual tables and the 'Beatles' cover band getting set up to lull the diners with some great music. Our meals were perfectly presented and plentiful, whilst our waitress was exceptionally attentative and keen to assist. The manager even attended our table asking if everything was OK and if we enjoyed our meal. Even the Aussie owner joined us and enlightened us with his quest to establish Nirvana, here in Seminyak. At no time was anyone intrusive or pushy. We were treated like royalty and there are many restaurants throughout the world who could take some timely lessons from the way Nirvana treated their 'guests'.

The food? Well what can one say about such delecacies that were cooked to perfection? There are no words good enough to describe the food that was presented to us on the night and we would seriously doubt the intentions on any diner leaving 'negative' comments. If there are any negative comments then the complainant must have been at the wrong restaurant.

Sorry Nirvana staff, but we stayed in Villas not far from your resteraunt and ate there four times before I finally got the message that your service is slow, your food either hit or miss and your portion sizes small.

One morning we went over for your "Big Aussie Breakfast" and were just about the only people in the place, however it took over an hour for the food to come out and even then the orders were all over the place.

Overall I will never come for a meal there again, however I did spend a fine boozy evening at your bar one night which I enjoyed..

It was fully booked so we thought it would be a good place to eat. Found it to be the worst place we tried in that street. Rendang Beef was tough as nails, I chewed and chewed and couldn't eat it. What kind of beef was it?!? In the meantime, some girl threw up everywhere, they treated her very well but poor customers eating next to her vomit were ignored. A fan was put onto the floor blowing vomit smells straight into those poor people! The guy cleaning it up used his hands and tissues without gloves then continued serving customers, at this stage we left.

As you said we treated the poor customer very well.To say the customers next to her we're ignored is total crap the table concerned received sincere apologies from several of my staff and the poor lady that was ill. The last part of review is again totally wrong the guy cleaning up is our cleaner and surprise surprise in our restaurant cleaners don't serve customers , It would be nice if you write reviews you actually write correct things and not total falsehoods just because you didn't enjoy the food .
