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).

Nirvana says
Nirvana is not a heavenly abode that one goes to. Nirvana is a mindset that one exists in. So whether it’s the department break for lunch or dinner for two; whether it’s a hunger for curry or a thirst for lassi; whether you dine in, or take away, our food assures that you take away the peace of mind that comes with only the perfect blend of spices, at the perfect Nirvana.

"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
