"Indian cuisine is so popular in England that Chicken Tikka Masala has been heralded as Britain's national dish. The British obsession with Indian food began in the days of the British Empire, when army personnel and civil servants posted in India developed a taste for the spicy native cuisine and soon brought the recipes back home.
Later, waves of immigrants from Commonwealth countries brought their gastronomic heritage with them, and the most readily assimilated cuisine was Indian food. Chicken Tikka Masala was invented in the UK as were the concepts of Vindaloo and curry sauce." (From http://www.viewlondon.co.uk/restaurants/indian-food-feature-929.html
Nirvana's website is http://www.insidenirvana.com/Notes: I know some people can't make it until 6:30 or 7, that is okay since it's a buffet. Try to bring cash if you can, it just makes things easier since Nirvana won't do separate checks. Keep in mind that they do an automatic 18% gratuity, so your dinner with tax and tip is $12.85, not including drinks.
