Me and my boyfriend went to this place about a month ago looking to get a quick bite. It was amazing!! Very cool atmosphere and really cheap eats!! We've been back several times. I highly recommend the Pad Thai and the avocado sandwich..both under 10$. The servers were busy but always ready to help us with what we needed. We're both glad we found this spot. My guy loved it mostly because they had Sapporo on tap! :)
For those Torontonians already familiar with the Red Room and the Green Room, Nirvana offers another choice of restaurant from the same owners. The formula of this psuedo chain is pretty much unbeatable: super low prices, tasty food, great sangria, awesome ambiance, and too-cool hipster staff.
However, Nirvana seems a bit more airy and cleaner than the other two installments in this restaurant/cafe series. The hippie, eclectic vibe is right on the money here. It's not as claustraphobic as the Green Room, and not as dark as the Red Room. I think they've finally got it right!
As usual, the food is awesome and you can get a filling main meal worth around 16 bucks in other places for 7 dollars. Try the Pad Thai, everyone loves it. You can also get a cheap Pimms drink, and they're not a usual thing in Toronto.
The only drawback to this venue is that you won't get the greatest service here. However, the staff are friendly even if they are a bit lacksadasical, and flagging one of them down is easy.
In sum, head to Nirvana for lunch, brunch, or evening drinks, and you'll be amazed at how much fun you had for so little money!
