With an attractive decor and fantastic buffet Nirvana Indian Restaurant serves Northern and Southern Indian dishes.I'm not the buffet type. Buffets make it too tempting to clutter one's plate with a hodgepodge of scoops and flavors, one running into the next. I prefer a more orderly plate, one in which the elements enhance one anothe ... read more

Clean for a desi place.  The food is not like the old Kings chicken if that's what you're looking for.  It was quiet at 6 pm on a Saturday.  Staff was attentive to our table.  I suppose because they weren't busy.  The price is a little steep for the food.  I would say the food was average.  They brought out papdums that were stale.   ... read more

This is a great restaurant that serves authentic Indian food from the northern part of India. We had the lunch buffet and the spread was oh so good. Each curry was different and flavorful. Highly recommended.

Was looking for Indian buffet for lunch and found Nirvana. It was fairly busy on a Thursday, it was complimentary valet parking (no self parking). Place looked decent, food was just average.

For a fairly upscale Indian restaurant, Nirvana checks all the boxes. Well above average food (I mean it's no Kiran's), great ambience, slightly crowded dining area that doesn't exactly flow well but somewhat functional and very good service.     For the price of the buffet, it's really high quality food compared to others within a ... read more

Visited Nirvana with a co-worker for lunch, and we were very impressed with the lunch buffet menu.  The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding.  If you plan on coming over for lunch, get there early!  Even with valet parking (which is complimentary) the parking lot gets full fast!

Really delicious Indian food and on Monday and Tuesday nights they have buffet. I got the Boti Kebab Masala with some roti and the meal it brought back memories to my trip to India. Staff is also very nice and provided great customer service. Definitely will come again to try some other dishes.

An excellent place to find quality Indian food. Sometimes pricey but well worth it. They have a buffet night once a week on Tuesdays that lets you sample a bit of everything. Also free valet parking.

I got take out so I can't speak to the service, but the food was delicious! The saag aloo was the best I've had in Houston. The Tikka Masala was good, a little too tomato based for my liking but still tasted good! I'll be back.
