My last visit was a year ago. It was good then. Not today. Only a third rate Buffet with the trays caked in dry crispy burnt out remains where the new food was mixed in with the old. Will not bother again.

An Indian restaurant with only chicken! No lamb, no goat nothing that I'd go back for. The buffet, for what it is, is overpriced and unimaginative.

Passable food. Service is unprofessional. Nice idea with the Indian flag colours but definitely an overkill with having 3 curries on the same platter.

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. Enjoy your piece of Nirvana Anjay Keswani
