I am surprised to find I'm the first one to review this restaurant on TA. It's very good fare for lunch time. The food is well prepared, reasonably priced and it is a nice break from those busy Parisian restaurants. It is right across the street from the Palace entrance. Worth a stop if you´re looking for something more substantial... More

Ordered a tandoori mix starter followed by a chicken Nepal curry and garlic naan. Chicken and fish were over cooked for the starter and main. Naan was cold and covered in burnt garlic pieces, so no taste of garlic on the bread. All food lacked taste. Curry had four pieces of curry and copious amounts of sauce. Very disappointing.

The restaurant is well located close to INSEAD. The spread is quite good. The food tastes quite good. I had Nan and Chicken Dopiyaza which were very well prepared and tasty.

The restaurant is packed with people and we need to squeeze in. The menu is extensive, the portions not too big. They offer to serve rice but I like to eat the meat with a warm naan bread. The waiters do a good job in the small restaurant.

Nice service. Choice within the menu is very good. It smells well when you are just around the restaurant what shows that experience will be good. We were outside, so no problem of noise and just looking to Napoleon Castle. Good place to eat, with very small prices.

After spending the week roughing it in the forest I decided to treat myself to some nice comforting Indian cuisine after spotting this restaurant on the way to the hotel. What an anti-climax. The greeting was frosty (although the waiter spoke good English), the food was run of the mill (Heinz soup sauces and badly presented stale salad), the atmosphere... More

Loved the food here, and after being vegan in France for 2 weeks, it was great to find something nutritious and delicious to eat.

Being a pure vegetarian Indian holidaying in France, missing good spiced up Indian food is common. While in Fontainebleau, we came across this little Indian restaurant just opposite the Chateau, and by the crowds sitting outside, we guessed it would be quite popular. But our visit for dinner was not as great as we had hoped for !! The starters... More

After a long day went there with 3 kids. the food was amazing and not they made it mild for the kids. The flavor was sublime. A really good place to eat. The service was also perfect. Great Indian restaurant. Would go back in a heart beat.

Own by real Indian guys the food is quite good and there is also a great variaty of dishes. Prices are acceptable but problably the size of the portions is discrete. If you like spice taste and particularly tandori in Fontainebleau .... this is your place! Place is not to big, but environment nice and service does no take too... More
