5-Course Elevated Pan-Indian Tasting Event

A genuine old-timer on the volatile restaurant scene, having opened in 2015, this Indian eatery located in the historic Interurban building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square hardly rests on its laurels. In fact, it continues to gather accolades, as a perennial Eater’s “Essential 38” member, including in 2023 (it also hitherto won Eater’s “Restaurant of the Year”), and a player on Infatuation’s 2023 List of “Best in Pioneer Square.” Executive Chef Mayur Thapa carries out Nirmal’s foundational credo of “Indian cuisine, Re-imagined” with dishes like lamb sheekh hussaini (chargrilled minced lamb), bharwan simla mirch (bell pepper stuffed with stir-fried vegetables, paneer, and tomato sauce), and saoji chicken rassa (chicken curry with chargrilled onion, coconut, chili, cardamom, nutmeg, and star anise), as well as fabulous biryanis and tandoori chicken. “When I think of Nirmal’s, enchantment is the first word that comes to mind,” says Seattle Times restaurant reviewer Providence Cicero, and boy, are we ready for a little enchantment!
