I had lunch today at Nirvana on Memorial. My co-worker looked horrified and I asked her what the problem was. She pointed to the cockroach that was climbing on the wall behind me. We asked to be moved and they did. But they did not get rid of the cockroach. The cockroach got to the ceiling and started crawling towards... More

I have been here three times so far. Twice for lunch buffet with co-workers - when I thought the fare was okay.... typical of an Indian buffet. The third time, I took my wife for dinner on a saturday evening and the place was almost empty. We occupied the third table to be occupied the evening. We ordered Reshmi Paneer... More

We have eaten here many times. We love the vegetarian platter but also often order entrees. Everything is tasty and the service is fantastic. Tonight we had dinner with friends, we shared samosas, aloo gobi, a vegetable korma, a spinach dish, chicken madras, rice and naan. There was nothing left at the end of the meal and I would order...

Ok if you have valet only parking you are responsible in texas courts. I will not go back. Food was unremarkable Indian fare. Valet people were rude and disappointing. Our group has stated we will not return and have actually found another Indian restaurant for our weekly lunch! Go elsewhere, this place will frustrate you.

We attended a function at Nirvana and the food was excellent as well as the variety! You can have more mild with plenty of flavor or a little spicier. Authentic Indian food. Service was very good, very friendly and helpful. The parking lot is very small and there was very aggressive valet parking person who would not let you park... More

Attended a function last night at Nirvana. We had the best assortment of curries we have ever had in a restaurant in Houston. The staff were fantastic and couldn't have been better.

The night we went, our fourth couldn’t make it so that reduced our choices for sharing but everything we had was very tasty. It’s a lovely indoor setting plus a nice (in warm weather) deck addition which is where we sat. There is also a buffet (not sure of the price) that smelt heavenly as we walked in and looked... More

If you like American friendly Indian buffets, this is easily one of the best in Houston (and that is saying something). I have never had a dish here I didn't like. The service has always been good. The only complaint I have is the parking, but now they have a full time valet, so that's not a problem.

It was a really disappointing meal, not worth the money. The Chicken Pakora and Machchi Khybri appetizers were bland, the taste did not live up to the descriptions. The Aloo Paratha had almost no aloo and no taste at all; Achari Murgh was average, nothing to write home about. The Mango Mousse was okay but was really dense and heavy... More

5+ stars. I would say 10 out of 10. The restaurant is clean and the decorations march the food being served. The staff is friendly and informative. They took care of your every wish. Texas and out of state travelers, you'll not be disappointed!!
