The food is all very delicious and fresh. Very cool inside. But the service is very sub-par. Not attentive to simple things like bringing silverware or napkins. Drinks ran dry. Buffet ran out of foods and the line got backed up. Some of us didn't get what we wanted on our second plate because they didn't bring any out in... More

Worst restaurant in Calgary. Worst service as well. Horrible food quality. Food was not fresh at all. On top restaurant server named "Karamvir Kaur" herself said mutton was made yesterday and they were still serving that! Like seriously how bad and disgusting can a restaurant service be. Our friends vomited at their washroom as well. No sorry no apologies from... More

the meal arrived awfully called and it was just the chewy meaty taste. No sufficient taste in the food. The service provided is horrible. Atmosphere of the restaurant was smelly. The tables had food stains on them and the employees speak in their own language and also avoid coming at the table at all circumstances

Been here a few times. The place is kind of dark though they have interesting Indian decor including a carved swing. The sweet shop has a good selection of Indian sweets and dry snacks. The restaurant features Punjabi menu. Food is ok, but not exceptional. The same goes for service. Prices are also average. So on the whole I will... More

I usually do pick up orders from here and have always had great service. Food is ready when they tell me it will be. Great price and quality is pretty good for the price.

The restaurant is conveniently located and ambiance is really nice. The service is bit slow and food is also average taste. But can be tried once for change of taste. Overall ok food.

First: The picture on the Tripadvisor profile is not of this restaurant. Nirvana in Calgary is located in a strip mall in the city's NE. Second: We enjoyed the lunch buffet on a Saturday in February. The food was fresh, very tasty, and the service was prompt. At $15 we also thought it was good value. However, the restaurant was... More

We used to go to Nirvana during our last stay in Calgary and at that time it was a decent place and a notch above all the other places selling Indian food. Well, what difference does some years make. We visited Nirvana for dinner last week and were told that it was buffet only as they were very busy. Well,... More
