I'd noticed this restaurant numerous times and was looking for a takeaway before going out for the night whilst on a weekend to Lille. We got exactly what we asked for, I chose the Madras and my other half had a Tikka Masala, we shared Bombay aloo. Staff spoke English and were friendly. Portions... read more

Tucked away but worth finding. Reasonable portions and prices but the chicken Tikka masala and basmati rice delicious. One waiter a bit serious looking but I did see him smile twice! Loo is a weird wooden throne thing, about a hundred years old. Random.

Having read some reviews, tried this restaurant, initially waiters seemed weary, however after talking to them and Manager Baljit, they could not do enough for us, food was steady, not amazing but good, small portions but maybe that's French standards, prices seemed average. Would visit again when in Lille.
