Description: One of the finest Indian restaurants in Midtown Manhattan, Nirvana offers a unique and delectable Indian dining experience. Just a short walk from Grant Central, Nirvana frequently welcomes United Nations dignitaries and other high-profile clientele. Nirvana has a sleek, stylish interior design, highlighted by the exceptional Skylight Gallery Dining Room on the 2nd floor. The exposed brick walls and exotic aromas of Indian cuisine easily inspire a romantic dining atmosphere. The warm and welcoming lounge is a comfortable area in which to enjoy a pre or post-dinner drink from the bar, whilst relaxing in the enticing leather couches by the fireplace. Classic Indian dishes such as Chicken Tikka Masala are available, alongside the chef's irresistible signature creations. These include the Rabbit Fiesta - a hearty Rabbit Stew with chilli, peas and chutney - as well as light Vegetable Samosas and Chicken Stir Fry.

This food was absolutely delicious! The service was great staff was very friendly. I had the chicken mantras and the flavours were deep and intense. Huge portion, not cheap but would go again maybe for lunch buffet which has a greater for little less.

We visited Nirvana twice whilst staying at the Affinia Shelbourne hotel. The food was fantastic, and we were even more impressed by the service. We arrived after serving finished on our second visit but the staff recognised us and kept the kitchen open for us.

More traditional menu than we are used to in the UK and a good selection of curry, wee bit pricey but don't grudge it for good food. Would definitely eat here again :)

Had dinner here earlier in the week. The food was exceptional. Everything we got was amazing. Best Indian we have had in ages and being a foodie - that's saying something. All the mains were amazing. Only let down was the chai tea at the end, which wasn't prepared in the traditional fashion I'd expected... Made up for by the tastie desert platter they comped us at the end though which was delicious.

Restaurant decor is really classy and tasteful. None of the gaudy Indian sometimes prone in Indian restaurants. Would thoroughly recommend eating here. Really really good food.
