Had a lovely dinner with my family last night, the host Waqar was wonderful and all staff were very welcoming. Highly recommend the restaurants, location is very central so great for a much needed curry after the shopping:) Gaurav

Sunday night in Paris. Found this beautifully appointed restaurant. Delicious Indian food. Great staff. Extremely polite and client centred. Great Kingfisher beer and the food was served respectfully and with a smile. Could not wish for a better Indian meal.

Very traditional in decor, nothing glitsy nothing fancy, perfectly acceptable. Staff were very helpful, food is spot on. finished it all, very centrally located without extortionate prices. For non complicated simple Indian subcontinental food that isn't stupidly priced, visit New Balal.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
