If you want to have Indian food in Vienna, then this is the place to be. The restaurant is very nicely located. We had ordered vegetarian thali, samosa and lassi and all of it was authentic. The staff is also very nice and courteous. They helped us find some places to visit in Vienna. Do visit this place. Highly recommended!!

The atmosphere is nice and location perfect. They have some excellent dishes on the a la carte, and also their lunch is a good quality. I find that Nirvana has it's personality, and it is not one of those dozens of similar indian restaurants. A high recommendation!

I walked in and was received with a warm greeting from a sweet Jamaican girl and the manager. The food was so good that I... More

Parents are vegetarian and thought this would be a great way to get filled on some great indian food. Great spot, given that there are not too many indian spot around here. Would recommend to a friend!

The service was very good but the food was inconsistent in its taste. We ordered 4 dishes - 2 were good (carrot ginger soup and the nan bread) but the other 2 were bad (chicken tikka masala which was different from any chicken tikka masala we have ever had, and tasteless vegetarian samosa). Also - quite expensive.
