I am amazed about the reviews given by several people about this restaurant. Being an Indian myself and having eaten Indian food in restaurants from Sydney to Vancouver and from Cape Town to Sao Paulo, I would like to advise fellow travellers that they would do well AVOIDING this restaurant.
My wife and I visited this restaurant along with a friend of ours for lunch. Being vegetarians, we ordered Paneer Varanasi and yellow daal, while our friend ordered some non-vegetarian dish. The first noticeable point was the size of the portions - they would have sufficed only for a bird, and a rather small bird at that. The main dish, as well as the daal, were tasteless, with Indian-ness and spices being conspicuous by their absence. Our friend, who is a frequent visitor to India, complained bitterly about the non-vegetarian dish being undercooked. However, quite possibly, the most useless item turned out to be their tandoori rotis - these were thick and underdone, and tasted stale. To give the devil his due, the naan was slight bit more edible.
Upon enquiry from the Chef (incidentally, the restaurant is Nepali-owned and managed), he put forth the excuse that the local French patrons preferred the food that way! I sincerely wonder if the gourmet French really like Indian cooking to be so lackadaisical and tasteless.
For us, it was one of the most disappointing meals that we have had for a long time.
