Restaurant review Nirvana (repost from old blog October 31, 2009)

Nirvana is located in the Mikasa mall facing Blue Street in Downtown Yokosuka. It is underground of the mall. The front has a very narrow profile and easy to overlook. To combat this, they have very cleverly vented out the kitchen air to the street level. So when passing by on the sidewalk there is a 2 meter aromatic zone of a sweet, sweet curry scent that comes out of nowhere and pops you in the face. This caught my attention. So anytime I smell curry, I have to investigate like Guy Noir.

These steps are MUCH harder to go up.  Hell yeah, India. Let's get a little wild with a Zima

The Room is kind of small, but ambiance is nice. It is warm and the smell of curry and spice is soothing. Also in the back corner is a flat screen playing Bollywood’s hottest jams!

The Curry comes in three spice levels… one, two, or three chili peppers. To me it isn’t that spicy But is still very flavorful.

Vegetable curry

Chicken curry

One of the appetizers is Chicken Momo.  Chicken meat in dumplings with spicy dipping sauce. Nice.


The Nan is so big that is broken down into four sheets so it can fit into the basket. The cheese nan comes in a Frisbee-sized disk with a thick layer of cheese. It will fill you up and comes with a side of “the itis.” However the bread is unusually sweet. Sweeter than any other nan I have ever head.

Nice set. Have time for a nap?

The lunch menu comes in sets ranging from about 750-1200 yen. The Dinner sets range from about 1100-2100 yen. Overall, a good place for Indian curry in downtown Yokosuka.
