After about 3 hours of cruising around the streets of Lyon, really felt like some Indian food. Luckily my friends gone still had battery and TripAdvisor directed us straight to this little gem. The place smelt amazing! After only 10mins wait we got our bag of goodies and ate down by the river. I had the chicken masala, Safran rice... More

I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided this was the place for our curry. I'm rarely wrong in taking Tripadvisor's advice, but this was a terrible mistake. My curry (Chicken Royal) and Dal Royal had a bland, unappetising flavour that I associate with average cook-in sauces and some supermarket curries (not the best ones either). After the meal the...

Discovered this little gem on trip advisor as we'd only just arrived in town and really wanted some indian food. The waiter was extremely helpful and upon realising we were English even offered his translation purposes to us. My husband's starter of meat somosa was excellent without being too fatty. My only complaint was that my main course of prawn... More

The location is in the old city. The food is really good with a lot of veg option. Worth having the dhal and paratha. One of the best Resturant in lyon and location is just amazing. Also worth having mango lassi .

As a pair of Brits in France, we hugely miss Indian food. We passed a few Indian places whilst wandering the old town and I'm glad we took a look on tripadvisor and picked this one. The food was tasty and great value. The place seems to be family run and the service was attentive and friendly. We had 3... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful and very patient with non-French speakers. They were also very understanding and willing to cater for allergies in our group. The food, when it arrived, look deceptively small in portion but wasn't the case - the trick is in the presentation. Nicely presented and appropriately spiced. It wasn't... More

Very nice and polite service and tasty food. The Chicken Korma was mildly spiced and juice and the menucard offeres something for tastes. Highly recommended.

This restaurant offers modernized presentation of north-Indian cuisines. We ordered only vegetarian dishes and we were quite happy with food preparation, quality, freshness and quantity of servings I must admit that we were a bit skeptical due to our recent past experiences at other Indian restaurants this year in different cities. In fact we had decided not to try another... More
