A nice surprise in Paris to eat in an Indian Restaurant. Food was good, not too spicy. Staff helpful& courteous. Good for Asians who need Rice & Curry, even when in Europe. Vegetarian & Non Vegetarian food were both available.

I was there with firends and had a very nice dinner. It was a surprise as we are close to St Michel and in the middle of a touristic area where other restaurants are present which are not really good. Anyway this one is really to be appreciated. The personnel is professionnal and smiling, looking for you to be well... More

I didn't like their food. Their lentil soup was not a soup, I don't know what it was. Not recommended for those who knows Indian food.

They sold me kheema naan with hardly any kheema inside, for takeaway. I called them up and i was told that they will transfer my money back on my credit card..but it was never done..although they took my creditcard details on the phone. I was afraid that perhaps they misuse my credit card details.

While looking for a place to eat, we stumbled upon this little restaurant in the Latin District (close to the river). It has outdoor seating along with open windows to the inside. The service was quick and friendly, and they recommended some great dishes.
