Horrrrrible dinner at Nirvana

Monkess | Sep 6, 2009 12:24 PM

Nirvana on K street
I am practically last in line for a restaurant bashing...but I was so totally filled with remorse at having eaten here that I want others to be spared this place.
We ordered a mix vegetables in tomato sauce, dal makhani and eggplant curry with rotis and puri(fried bread)
We got this overflowing bowl of tomato sauce and then realized it was actually a medium green pepper that had been halved filled with tomato sauce(which was nice tasting) mixed in were about 6 corn KERNELS and a couple of frozen beans....for $10? That was a joke but was supposed to be the mixed vegetable curry...O-K-AY.
The rest of the food was mediocre to bad too...the eggplant curry had 2 small pieces of eggplant but rather drowned in the we do understand that water aka as gravy is way cheaper than vegetable-but hey at 10 bucks you can afford to throw in some more veggies.
The dal had a box of salt thrown in, so bitter that we could barely have a couple of spoons each.
The final straw was the was so hard and crunchy due to being deep fried when the oil was obviously not hot enough-the thing was drowning in grease and when we popped it open it squirted oil everywhere.
Total time eating-7 mins
We practically left the table untouched, forked over $50 and the bald man (manager?) who probably is so used to this, did not once ask us how we were doing, nor why the food was untouched.
Please do yourself a favor and stay away.
P.S. A good indication of what goes on in the kitchen and with general upkeep is the washroom. I tried to wash my hands but that place was filthy and stank so bad, I just about managed to do that. A toal dampner on a good evening. :(
