Aarapana is a good Indian restaurant. I have had the honor of tasting every vegetarian dish which has met my satisfaction. My companion who is non veg has boasted of their tikkas and tandoori chicken. We enjoyed eating to a background of live tabla. We asked about hosting parties and were impressed by previous events on videos.

We went to this authentic restaurant close to Notredame.Service food and ambiance was excellent. I liked their cheese Nan and chicken Makhani and Kulfi, the Indian ice cream.

Bad service, cold food and the quality of the food is also poor. The nice decoration is the only positive point. We were disappointing.

I came for the buffet. The rice is so fragrant! Great vegetarian selections. Good thing I came in before 9pm. This place is filled up fast.

The restaurant has quitr a few options for indian food. Personally i liked the ala carte food. Chicken biryani and mughlai chicken. The buffet is cheaper, however its not hot and the taste is not great. The place offers hukkah as well, so its worth the stop over. Price is reasonable.

Boring food. We both chose a 3dish menu. Starters were generous in volume, poorly cooked and low on taste . Maindishes were scarce in volume and content and even more boring In taste. Waiter missed at both of our requests for main course . They were replaced without discussions but waiting extra time for the tastless maindish wasnt worth it... More

FILTHY AND UNSANITARY -- AVOID THIS RESTAURANT! The service was lazy and not very polite. The food we ate here tasted bland and boring, and the bathroom was very dirty, with scraggly hairs and chunks of old food in the sink. To make matters worse, the night after eating the meal my girlfriend and I were sick several times, and... More

Spotted this while we were walking from the cathedral to catch the train. This one is a good Indian restaurant having most of the Indian dishes. They welcome guests in a traditional Indian style. Non-Indians may find this one as average restaurant.

Fabulous food and service. Ordered a chicken biryani and chicken dupiaza. Wine was great. Beer cold. Gifts too to take home to my daughter. Couldn't ask for more. Bravo Aarapana. We will be back.

Close to notre dame you might expect some good restaurant but unfortunately it wasn't, poor selection of the buffet, and not really tasty as well
