Modern Indian cuisine has its basis in the 5,000 year history of the country, shaped by regional, cultural, and colonial influences. The food of India is as incredibly diverse as the languages, people, traditions, and customs from across its vast heartland.
Nirmal’s is the culmination of over 30 years of culinary experience of Chef Nirmal Monteiro, our five-star chef. His lifelong dream is realized in this restaurant, showcasing his talents and inspired by great traditions of Indian food, yet re-imagined with the influences of his global culinary journey.
Located in the historic Interurban building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square, Nirmal’s surroundings reflect the same mix of tradition and adventure that is a hallmark of our chef’s extraordinary creations.
Chef Nirmal combines fresh local ingredients from the Pacific Northwest with traditional ingredients and spices from across India. The tastes are at once familiar, yet new and exciting. Prepare for a dining experience with diversity and subtlety of flavors not available in any other Indian restaurant!
At Nirmal’s, we believe that dining is more than just great food; it is the whole experience! Great food, great ambiance, excellent service, and sense of community are our mission. We embrace our new community and surroundings, and we welcome you to join us as we explore new possibilities in Indian cuisine.
