About Nirvana

Admittedly, the stairway to heaven traditionally faces upwards, but on this occasion we invite you to descend to Nirvana, a modern Indian glass-fronted basement restaurant on that al fresco catwalk, the King’s Road (Vivienne Westwood’s shop is next door). As smart as the five-home owning, designer-label-clad locals who dine here, this restaurant is far removed from traditional Indians. Strictly modern in its elegant combination of purple paint and large mirrors, a deeply sensuous atmosphere characterizes Nirvana. Directed by Master Chef Baz (as seen on LWT’s The Borough), the menu features a selection of speciality dishes such as baked roast cauliflower in a cashew nut sauce with cheese and yoghurt. The mouthwatering Degustation and Ayurvedic menus offer healthy meal options ideally suited to the figure-watchers amongst you. Aiming to provide the full package of affordable, quality food and service, manager Wahid Ali says: "We’re the cheapest Indian on the King’s Road, that’s for sure."
