Indian Restaurants in Opelousas

Select Local Merchants

Bayleaf Indian Cuisine's menu marries traditional dishes from both North and South India to populate gleaming, white tablecloths with plates of marinated lamb and seafood, each sizzling from the tandoor and slathered in spices such as ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. After clinking glasses of wine or imported beer, patrons sop up sauces spuming from curry dishes with morsels of warm naan before crowning the overseas adventure with crisp, honey-laden bites from gulab jamun dumplings. Meanwhile, groups can commandeer the executive room to furnish dinner celebrations for parties of 50 or boring musical-chair games for parties of one.

Crisp green cucumbers, creamy hummus, and splashes of bright red paprika LaShish Greek & Lebanese Restaurant’s colorful displays of falafel and lamb. Each dish is carefully prepared by experienced chefs, from Lebanese labneh yogurt dip seasoned with mint and olive oil to mousaka made with layers of potato, eggplant, and ground beef. The chefs also take a traditional approach in the kitchen by marinating gyros and shawarma meats with authentic Mediterranean spices and spearing lamb and kafta kebabs with Orion’s arrows.

Worlds End Cafe’s chef Jessie W. Craig combines local ingredients with global culinary traditions to create an eclectic menu of contemporary pub fare. The curry chicken wrap encases yellow and red peppers, chicken tenders, and curry mayonnaise in a flour tortilla ($6.99), while the southwestern salad bears a mélange of black beans, fried tortilla chips, and jalapenos ($6.99). Like a Choose Your Own Adventure tax return, the Catfish Your Way lets diners determine their own happy endings by opting to fry, broil, or sauté a duo of fillets ($8.99). Meanwhile, the all-beef Worlds End hot dog ($4.99) can arrive naked or clothed in diners' choice of dressings. Stationed amid décor paying homage to English pubs and works of literature, visitors can show off their literary knowledge or stage Pride and Prejudice adaptations with an all-condiment cast.
