We enjoyed a wonderful dinner New Years Eve, the last time Nirvana was open. Ro & Shivali created the most interesting restaurant, bar and music venue on Vashon Island but have closed the place to pursue other adventures. They and Nirvana will be missed by...More

What a cool place, an old house or hotel, I believe, decorated, with spare but witty and hip decor. We enjoyed a delicious bowl of edamame as an appetizer and the decadent bacon and cheese macaroni. This place appears to emphasize elaborate cocktails and to...More

The owners challenged themselves to transform a good Indian restaurant of the same name into a wonderful place serving beautiful tasty dishes and they have succeeded.

What a great place! One of the best restaurants in the pugent sound area. Chef Erickson is one of the best. This restaurant is going places and soon. Hard to believe it has been open just a month. Great asset to our island.

You've just landed onto Vashon Island, and are hungry. Where to go? Lots of choices, of course, but, give Nirvana, a taste, you will be pleasantly surprised. Why? Menu has something for everyone, well prepared, and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is a place which is...More

Nirvana Bistro & Bar was created on a simple premise; Food has no borders. We take pride in the fact that we can bring dishes from around the world and make them very ‘local.’ There is something for everyone here. Our bar features craft cocktails that will excite the palate and are a visual treat. Our kids menu was created so people can spend quality time with their families and not leave their children at home. In many religions and spiritual practices, Nirvana is an ideal condition of rest, harmony, stability, and joy. Nirvana Modern Cuisine and Libations practices this through the way we treat each guest. Come experience a little bit of Nirvana on beautiful Vashon Island.
