New Orleans is known for all kinds of cuisine, but Indian food isn't one of them. And that's a shame, because while the city doesn't have a large South Asian population, one of the best Indian restaurants in the country is right here, Saffron on Magazine Street, a finalist in the 2018 James Beard Awards in the category of Best New Restaurant - that's in the country, not just here in New Orleans. And there are plenty of other mom and pop restaurants that go the more traditional route, curry houses with copious lunch buffets and even an Indian meets Creole spot, Silk Road in the Marigny. The small number of Indian and Pakistani folks living here are cuisine-proud, and you can satisfy your hunger for curry and other boldly flavored dishes at one of these 10 spots. Reserve a table at the upscale Saffron sooner rather than later, this place is putting New Orleans and Indian food on the national map.
