We arrived at this restaurant on a Friday night without a reservation on the recommendation of our hotel desk clerk. The staff were unbelievably welcoming and quickly found us a table on a rainy night We explained that we did not eat butter, cream or meat. After some questioning looks our waiter recommended a four lentil dish and another with... More

Clearly one of the best north Indian cuisines in France. Quality and quantity top notch! Super friendly staff and an amazing ambiance! Highly recommend it! I am a regular there!

Visited here after seeing the rating on trip advisor and the fork. Wasn't happy with the service at all as we were completely rushed (even though the restaurant was dead at the time). I don't like to be picky about little things but there was so many minor things that the waiter/owner did here which ruined the visit. The food... More

We went to this restaurant on our second visit to Paris. The service was good & prompt and the food fresh. The staff was very courteous and spoke fluent English, French and Hindi. The ambiance was warm, welcoming and neutral: neither overtly Indian nor strongly French. The tables however were quite close to each other, which apparently is a very... More

This restaurant is bad news and was our worst experience till date in any restaurant. Given a chance, I would rate this restaurant worse than terrible if I could. We did a mistake to book on an offer through thefork website. Due to wrong reservation we were told that we would be given only about 25 % off. Now from... More

This small Indian restaurant was almost packed when we came in around 8pm. We got a cozy (and very small) table for 2 that was served efficiently. The food was very nice, the dishes were very authentic. The service was good and had a great atmosphere. The quality price ration was good. I definitely plan to stop by there again.... More

Its a nice, cosy restaurant serving authentic indian cuisine. Its reasonably priced as well. ( for ex: A dal tadka and zafrani pulao would cost you around 10€ and is sufficient for two people). The attendants have an ever smiling face and were very welcoming. We totally enjoyed our dinner. We left the hotel and a block away we remebered... More

Vandan is a hidden jewel in paris. An Indian restaurant which has maintained its authentic indian taste. Its very near to Port'e de Orleans metro station. Staff is very friendly and hospitable. Its a very small restaurant (may be a house converted to hotel) but very well maintained and neat. You can expect a perfect inidan taste here, rates are... More

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighbourhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
