    We just had the most enjoyable dining experience at Nada. The ambiance was nice, the food was delicious and the service was OUTSTANDING!!! We were a party of 9 (three families in town for volleyball tournament) late for our reservation because of the vball games and the kitchen was closing but they accommodated us anyways. Savanah was our waitress and she could not have been kinder, more attentive or more accommodating. Her attention for detail was second to none, our rushed orders were brought out promptly and without error, she split our bill by family without asking and was so sweet throughout the whole process. If I owned a business in Indianapolis I honestly would have offered her a job. Thank you for a wonderful evening Savanah!

    The food used to be better about 2 years ago. It was busy without enough staff making the serve a bit on the slow side, but still friendly. It’s too noisy and dark inside, especially at lunch time.

    Visited Nada while traveling on business. We were a party of five and were seated in a nice booth in the rear of the restaurant. The server was pleasant and attentive. We shared starters which were all good- chips and salsa, guacamole, ceviche. My taco entree was very flavorful and well prepared. All in all an excellent experience.

    The queso and guacamole were excellent! The chips are made from scratch so it's worth paying the $2.50 for the chips and salsa. My husband and I split the salmon tacos and they were excellent. The watermelon drinks (both alcoholic and non alcoholic) were amazing as well. The churros were a sweet surprise.

    Best food in Indy! We had the brussels sprouts and street corn along with our tacos, and the explosion of flavors kept us coming back for more! Next time, we are ordering all the appetizers and sides because we're sure we missed out on some gems!

    There was no AC the day we were there and no one mentioned it when we walked in for our reservation. That would have been common courtesy on a nearly 100 degree day. When we asked our server, she said there was no air and then the manager was beyond rude telling a member of the party that he will take her name and number and call her next time the AC goes out. Let customers make decision about staying in a warm, stuffy restaurant or going elsewhere...it's common courtesy. This issue took away from the good food and drinks.

    Mahi fish tacos were delicious but the chips/salsa and the roasted corn were bland. I ordered the Chips/Salsa and no sooner had it come out my tacos showed up. Then I had to ask the waiter when I was done with my tacos when my roasted corn was coming out. Used to go to Nada regularly when I worked in Cincinnati appears the food has slipped a bit.

    My wife and I were out with our daughters while we were in town. They live in Indianapolis and we were there for a conference, so we picked a place downtown. It was excellent and everyone got their fill. The main menu items are tacos, the bigger items are shareable, and appetizers are too. I recommend the queso dip to start and the beans and rice with cilantro rice, both are great!

    This place has a gorgeous dining room and bar- wow. My husband and I stopped in for dinner during our last night in Indy. We ordered the Al Pastor tacos (excellent), the street corn (excellent) and the cilantro rice and beans bowl. We decided to go tapas style instead of a large plate. We then ordered the crispy potatoes for 'dessert' as it has sweet chili sauce- the potatoes were good but quite a few pieces were burnt to carbon. We each had a skinny margarita and a Pinot Grigio (very small pour). Service was excellent and friendly. $83 before tip. I think next time we may go for a large plate like the Peruvian chicken ($29) and skip the small sides. The ambiance is wonderful!

    Nada - IndianapolisResponded on 7 June 2022Thanks for the great review! I will be sure to pass your note about the potatoes to Chef so we can be sure to make corrections on that dish. The Peruvian Chicken is definitely a crowd pleaser! Hope to see you again soon for a well deserved margarita!

    Our waitress was very attentive and accommodating. The food very disappointing. Apparently they are transitioning menus and had several items unavailable. We also heard that many items were in the freezer so what we thought was going to be freshly made was not. Must food came out if the kitchen luke warm. We chose this restaurant based on other recommendations so not sure what happens.

    Restaurants was closed when we arrived and we did not receive a notice that it would be closed on Saturday evening! Disappointed that we made a reservation nearly a week in advance and didn’t know we would have to scramble on a Saturday evening to go elsewhere.

    Nada - IndianapolisResponded on 26 May 2022I apologize for this. We made the difficult decision to close on Saturday due to some extreme circumstances. We made an attempt to call everyone on our reservation list to inform them Friday night, there were several people who did not answer and did not have a voicemail option. I will reach out directly with more details and hopefully we can make this up to you.
