Arrive early if you don't have a reservation - at least at this time of year. We were the 2nd table to arrive around 7pm. This is early for Guadeloupe so they found us a table; however, by the time we left at 9:30pm the place was almost full. Here are our thoughts: Pros - savoury and diverse food selections;... More

We came here after reading that this restaurant is one of the few that offers vegetarian options. The ambiance at the restaurant is very nice but pretty dark (so dark that some fellow diners needed to use flashlights to read the menus). Others have mentioned that prices are high- I only somewhat agree. Prices for some items (probably the most... More

Great ambience, good service and excellent food - what more could you ask! Guadeloupe offers very little choice of cuisine so it is refreshing to come to a restaurant with almost no direct competition and still be treated as is if you are important to them -well done!

This place was a vegetarian's haven in Guadeloupe and that's why my husband and I went twice. The food is also delicious. Really well-prepared, nuanced flavours, fresh and authentic. However, the price point is quite exaggerated, especially compared to what we're accustomed to paying for Indian food in Montreal. 25 Euros (and up) for a curry that doesn't come with... More

Such a delightful experience. Sumptuous cuisine! An exotic and beautiful decor, thoughtful service. Un incontournable à St. François. Kick back with a cold bottle of King Fisher ale and some papadum! Enjoy the flavours of India!

The place was a welcome refuge for a vegetarian. The service was quick and efficient. The hostess was charming and inviting. The decor was nice. The food that I ordered was quite tasty. I'd definitely go back.

Perhaps a little of the beaten track, but a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Well decorated, excellent, friendly service, and the food was fantastic, with just the right level of "kick" to wake the taste buds. Recomend it and I will certainly be returning.

The Indian food is good. This restaurant near Saint Francois is aspen terrace, with cool winds blowing. Open only for dinner and on Sundays only lunch is server. In Guadeloupe, best for Indian food.

This place looks lovely from the outside, and is better still inside. The atmosphere and ambiance were both excellent,as was the service. We paid 90 euros for 2 people, for 4 small beers, two popadums and pickles, one nan and two main dishes with rice.

First time there. A real discovery. We were not use to the Indian cuisine, but for a first it was a very pleasant one. Beautiful setting and decoration. Very clean. Service up to a 4 stars standard. Food excellent with spicy levels for every taste. Very friendly table service, as good counseling on plates to choose or the right wine... More
