Indian restaurants in France seem to be of variable quality. This is not one of the good ones. The restaurant itself is in need of decoration and refurbishment. The mix of styles really doesn't work. The menu is standard fare for an Indian restaurant, but unfortunately the dishes lack character. They are bland and lack the characteristic flavors of good... More

We had the most wonderful meal, the whole experience of Indian food is just the best. We started with Chicken Tikka and the curry for main course , after we had a nice glass of cognac. The waiter was great fun, he had a wonderful sense of humour. So all in all the food, wine we had a wonderful evening.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch and we were not disappointed. Although a tiny restaurant, the food we ordered tasted delicious, looked lovely, and was well-served. What more can you ask for?

Small family owned and operated place judging by the menu. We both had items from the lunch menu, Chicken Curry and a Matar. They were well cooked but not edgy or particularly inventive interpretations. The surroundings were somewhat cramped and the music held no surprises. We did have enough to eat but I don't feel inspired to go back.

The place looked interesting but was a disappointment. Very small inside, average Indian food and service.

Two of us went for lunch. It was Thursday; there was no-one else in the restaurant, though one man did collect a take-away. We chose the "Menu du midi" at €11.50 for 3 courses. There are several choices for each course; we started with onion bhajis and vegetable samosas. Both choices were okay, but I thought the filling of the... More
