This was an unexpected visit for my family, but we enjoyed it very much. We were a group of seven, and the owner, Tina, was kind enough to suggest several options for appetizers and main dishes. She served three different appetizers and three separate main dishes of beef, fish, and pork. Each of us were served white rice, vegetables and sauces (both mild and spicy). The restaurant was small and quaint, and we were fortunate to have it all to ourselves during dinner.

My wife and I were treated to an exceptional inexpensive home cooked meal by LaLa. She and her two children prepare a madagascar cuisine worth stopping by for. There dessert = Tres Bon!

From the moment we entered the restaurant, we experienced great customer service from the owner and her son. The food was cooked to a very high standard and for great value too. This is a must go to place!

Like going to a Madagascan mama's house for lunch. Simple foods, homemade and simply awesome. Don't expect professional service like restaurants do because the owner served us really personally and well (even when it was busy). Will go there again when in the area. Awesome!! :)

Staying close to Tina's restaurant and needing food without walking far we ate went there expecting a mediocre (perhaps curry) meal
Brilliant surprise !
Delicious just about sums it up
Mixed starters were fun and filling
Husband's chicken and my beef were seasoned so subtley and the portions were big
Other patrons were clearly locals.
I would not feel out of place eating on my own here
The warm but unobtrusive welcome was just perfect. You want to be part of this family
The only downside would be lack of air-conditioning as this place is tiny and Paris can be HOT !
Be careful what you order. The portions are big
