My friend and I went there and we where so surprised about the overwhelmingly good service. The restaurant itself has a nice and warm atmosphere with a slightly chic touch. The staff works very fast therefore right after we chose where we want to sit, they have already brought us some crispy bread and dips as a welcoming gesture. The... More

Service and food was good, not outstanding though. The owner should work on the decor which is quite cheesy.

Saw this restaurant from the bus as we went to the light show and the Botanischer Garten so walked back later. The food was very good Indian but not as we know it in UK. Meals come complete with rice and nan and salad. Spice palette different from UK Indian food bit delicious nonetheless. The staff were friendly and gave... More

One of the best Indian dinners I have ever had! The restaurant was definitely full on a Saturday night, (after eating here now I know why) but they were able to sit two of us right away. They started us off with two large pieces of crispy bread and three sauces. All yummy but the green one was my favorite,... More

We ate here during business travel. We took one of the ready menus, 27 euros for two persons. The menu included apetizers, soup, a selection of three main courses and fruits for desert. The food was tasty, service was very friendly and quick.

Very untasty food. One person of Indian descent in our group was appalled, said some of the dishes were not right, cream added to dishes not supposed to be cream-based. The chicken in the chicken dishes was flavorless and had a very creepy, spongy texture suggesting some kind of "enhancement." Bad night's sleep after meal because of a very heavy... More

If in Berlin, I always make sure I have time to eat at least one time at Nirvana, located next to the Schlosspark theater and the Schlossstrasse. The food is very affordable, great Indian flavors and the staff friendly, knowledgeable, and happy to assist choosing dishes you might like. If your planning to go in the weekends, make sure you...

Food was ok. Lassi salty not as good as expected but overall food was ok. My friends had the same experience. Service average too. In conclusion not a true highlight but certainly ok to go.

This was our first visit to Berlin, and after a long drive we opted for a walk to this place near our hotel. It was busy on a Friday night, but not to the point of having to wait for a small table for 2. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. After a (very) short exchange in German,... More

Nirwana used to be an excellent restaurant. But since they've upgraded themselves, the food has become terrible. It can't really be described as Indian food anymore. Everything seems to have been mellowed down to accomodate the old ladies and families who visit the theatre next door. People, in other words, who wouldn't normally be caught dead in an Indian and...
