Well worth the brief walk from the CBD, this restaurant is also a bar that serves excellent cocktails (try the mango daiquiri) and a venue for some very talented blues and jazz musicians. Nirvana specialises in three cuisines – Indian, Malaysian and Thai – with Nirvana bugs a signature dish, and Pandang chicken and red duck curry also very tasty. Servings are plentiful and the ambience is moody, with dim lighting and mellow colours throughout. Nirvana has four separate dining areas, including intimate wooden booths for privacy.
