NIRVANA: "Indo-Caribbean fusion..." Top 5 Page for this destination West Palm Beach Restaurant Tip by sunlovey

Owner chef hails from Trinidad, but traces his roots to India, thus an eclectic menu full of intense flavors and spice.

One must take into account the fact that Nirvana is located in a strip mall... this made me skeptical. BUT... for what it is, the decor and ambience are quite nice, the bar is chic, there is nice live music on the weekends. (An acoustic guitar player with a soothing voice who starts out playing some smooooth bossa nova but eventually takes requests.)

Tables feature crisp white table cloths, chairs have a trumped up Caribbean flair, lighting is subdued.

Guests at Nirvana sit down to a plate of roti, the flour wraps made with split peas, and focaccia bread accompanied by two dipping sauces: sweet tamarind chutney and spicy green mango chow.

Reservations are recommended.

Favorite Dish: Tim started with grilled prawns served in a flaky parmesan basket, beautiful presentation...delicious.

I had a tiger shrimp appetizer with petite fried and spiced spheres and a spicy mango chutney. Quite tasty.

Tim had their seared tuna special. Excellent quality. Beautiful presentation...

I had a scrumptuous chicken curry with Island-inpsired accents. Overflowing with tasty veggies and such, mmmmmm....

Price per person is without wine, assuming each person has a starter and entree.
