Fed up with vastly overpriced, and let’s face it, often lacklustre food in pompous Parisian restaurants? You know that you are ! Well here is an unpretentious restaurant/café serving traditional south Indian vegetarian food. Normal stuff – masala dosa, sambar, etc. Not the place for a special dinner à deux, but just right for a quick and cheap lunch close... More

If you are in Paris and you need some south indian food then this is the place to be. Not a fancy place as such and the ambience too is just decent enough. We had the masala dosa, uthappam and some idly for dinner and everything was quite good.

Three days back I came for the tour in Paris and I visited this Restaurant with my family members. I ordered for saravana special thali and it was good but Rassam was salty. I liked this Restaurant and I found the taste really good. It was a typical south Indian taste.

This is one of the best south Indian vegetarian restaurants that I have visited in Paris. A large variety of typical cuisine is proposed on the menu. The food is tasty but very spicy. Can get really busy during lunch and dinner hours. The prices are above average.

I was really disappointed😠there was no tasty food, non hygienic washroom and worst seats cushion was almost torn out not just in one seat. I will not recommend this restaurant to anybody.

Visiting this place is like going to a restaurant in Chennai! The food is pretty much the same. They did seem to not have a few things on the menu but that is the Indian experience. This is a good place for a vegetarian.

Good restaurant to go to have a good south indian meal. Very close to Paris north station. There are few other options as well in the same street though.
