I had visited this restaurant in 1999 and again on my visit in 2014 I made it a point to visit this restaurant. The food was exceptional, service was very good. I sincerely recommend any Indian cuisine enthusiast to visit this restaurant.

We enjoyed a pleasant evening here with tasty dishes and polite service. The surroundings are interesting and there were many Asian customers eating here which is always a good sign for an Indian restaurant.

Went there for dinner but very disappointing food & service. While we were still finishing food the waiter started to take away the served item without even asking us. On top of that instead of apologising he was being arrogant to us & lying to his owner. Over priced food & quantity is way too less & bad quality. Won't... More

Great Indian food in Paris a short walk from the #3 Metro line in the 17th. There is a small outdoor space and two larger indoor dining rooms. There is good ac for hot days. Service is attentive and quick. The food is fresh and comes hot...it can be made to your desired level of spice. Everything tastes like it... More

This service at this restaurant is the worst I've experienced. The owner clearly has no respect for the patrons, who happen to be paying for her place to run. She seemed quite insecure was really loud and obnoxious, and kept comparing her food to other restaurants in Paris. I was tempted to walk out half way through the meal. The... More

The only good thing about this restaurant is its nice interior decor: which is however offset by a high noise level. The staff is arrogant, gets easily angry and answers back to even the simplest of requests. The food portions are very little: however, the food itself is ok (though not spicy) and the naans are good. Best to avoid,... More

I go very often to check on this restaurant how are they doing and I can say that they are still the best in west Paris. The service is very nice but you have to know that the waiters do not speak very well French or English so you have to be a little bit patient. Point out on the... More
