Welcome to Nirvana Indian Cuisine.

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!


In 1982, inspired by the curry houses of Europe, Har and Anila Keswani opened their first Indian restaurant, Taj Mahal, in Metairie (still in operation). Since then, the Keswani family has operated 3 other Indian restaurants in New Orleans: Keswani’s in Uptown Square, Shalimar in the French Quarter, and now, since 1999, Nirvana on Magazine Street.
