Description: Established in 1982 Welcome to the Nirvana Indian Cuisine. Please take a few minutes to look around. The paintings and sculptures you are seeing are windows to India's ancient spiritual world. After visiting the curry houses of Europe, especially of London, my late father (Har G. Keswani) was inspired to bring Indian culture and food to New Orleans. Since 1982, the Keswani family has presented the unique cuisine of India to the New Orleans community.

We stopped for dinner here after walking around Magazine street. We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle and were craving Indian cuisine. We arrived around 6:30 and it wasn't busy. We chose to sit outside. Our waiter came to the table and we ordered an appetizer. Another gentlemen brought out our appetizer a few minutes later. We ate our appetizer and never saw our server. The same gentlemen that brought out the appetizer came back and grabbed our empty plates. I said "I think we are ready to order dinner." as we had been waiting a while to order by this time. He went inside and our waiter came back out and seemed put off by us. We ordered and never saw our waiter again. The same gentlemen that brought us our appetizer brought us our meal. The only nice person we experienced was the hostess, a young, talkative girl. Besides the service being terrible the food was not good either. What a disappointment!

This place was recommended to us by a local who was showing us the sites around NOLA. It was one of his fav. places for indian food., We all ended up getting the buffett. It was delicious! The butter chicked was so good. They also had different sauces you could dip your bread in..there was one that was a spicy mint sacue you could get and you wouldn't think it was good by looking at it, but it had the best flavor. It was a very affordable dinner as well.

Went with friends to try Indian food for the first time. I ordered the Nirvana Special which was three different dishes, one chicken, shrimp and lamb. The lamb dish was the best. Shrimp had no favor, just Very Hot!! Chicken was over cooked and Very Hot!! I don't mind spicy, but have some favor with it.

Solid samosas. Creamy rogan josh and a nicely spiced vindaloo. If you're looking for Indian in Nola, nirvana is your place.

My husband and I stopped in here for the lunch buffet on a Sunday afternoon. The $9.99 per person price tag was appealing and so were the tasty options on the buffet. The naan, yogurt sauce, butter chicken, and rice pudding were my favorites. The decor inside in nice. They have covered outdoor seating which is a plus on Magazine Street.
