There’s always a gaggle of hungry hordes flocking the entrance to Nirvana in Bangsar. Fortunately though, service is fast so tables are filled and released quickly. The reason for the queue is their tasty banana leaf. Turnover is HIGH so you can expect your meal to be hot out of the pot. The standard leaf comes with white rice, three types of veges, a crispy papadam, tart pickles, salted chilis, rasum (a sour soup) and your choice of curries – fish, chicken or dahl. There are many additional bits you can order such as fried chicken or biryani instead of white rice. We tried the biryani which came with a juicy drumstick, worthy of the few extra ringgit. Accompany with a mint lassi to balance the spice and you have yourself a well rounded meal. Nirvana is a terrific spot to bring visitors for a colourful taste of Malaysia.
