A classy and fine indo-pak cuisine restaurant with great service and ambience among the other indian restaurants in Paris.Average menu rates are at 18euros.Food is tasty, quantity is not at par with price.

A very decent Indian cum pakistani dining with taste close to native food but do not bring the real flavours. This place should get real praise for its hospitality... A warm and cozy corner with smiling faces serving good. Welcome drink is real good ! If in Paris and looking for a Indian food, cn give a shot !!

I had the feeling I was in India again, very delicate taste . Great service, great food. To go and go again. No need to search another place, this is the place to feel the real taste. Each bite transports you far away! Thank you New Balal

It is actually hard not to use a bad word, but I will behave. The reason is that words like great, awesome staff, magnificante tastes and wonderfull classic interior becomes a little dull. Will I come back? Everytime I am in Paris. Try it :D

Restaurant was around the corner from our hotel, close to Galerie Lafayette. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We ordered butter chicken and chicken tikka masala. They were able to adjust the spice level. The serving size is large and filling. This place is just amazing. Would recommend it if you like Indian food, or if it is your... More

I used to visit their other restaurant (New Jawad) during my stay in Paris. But the owner suggested that I visit this one since this was walking distance from my apartment. It's almost the same as New Jawad... but slightly better. Try their Kulfis and Lassis!

In the very center, next the opéra garnier, you will find easliy this paki restaurant. Obviously, the restaurant mentions indian restaurant but they are genuine pakis who owned the restaurant. Many waiters will make sure that you get everything you desire. All dishes are as refine as delicious. Wheter you like spice or not, just ask they will please you.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
