The servers and chefs at Nirvana certainly hope to send you to that state with their traditional Indian cuisine. The list of starters includes the ubiquitous vegetable samosas ($6), garlic naan ($6) and lamb potato croquettes ($10). For the entrees, opt for favorites like lamb vindaloo ($21), saag paneer ($15), chicken tikka masala ($19) or a spicy fish curry ($23), or try some of the more inventive options on the dinner menu, like lobster tikka masala ($30) or venison chops with a dark rum reduction and cumin potatoes ($35). You might also want a side or lamb ($21), goat ($21), shrimp ($21) or chicken ($20) biryani to soak up all the rich sauce. Cool off your palate with a sweet mango lassi ($4.95) or masala chaas, a spiced buttermilk drink ($3.95). Still craving something sweet? The dessert menu includes a caramelized carrot and cream pudding, sweet cottage cheese dumplings and a basmati rice pudding with almonds, raisins and rosewater (each $5).
"There is that dimension where there is neither earth, nor water, nor fire, nor wind; neither dimension of the infinitude of space, nor dimension of the infinitude of consciousness, nor dimension of nothingness, nor dimension of neither perception nor non-perception; neither this world, nor the next world, nor sun, nor moon. And there, I say, there is neither coming, nor going, nor stasis; neither passing away nor arising; without stance, without foundation, without support."
– Buddha, on Nirvana
