Loved the food. Feels like heaven to have Indian food on Foreign land. Clean, prompt service although can be a bit quicker

“Not great,simple but spicy food but good for vegetarians”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went there at least 4 times during my Paris stay, as I am a vegetarian but found the food too spicy although I am a torrid chilly eater.Children can only have the plain dosa and idlis the chutney quantity is inadequate and is quite spicy.The food can be made tastier as once when we went during the afternoon things were quite good better than the evening fare.Also didnot quite understand the funda of serving only 2 pooris with the thali..buck up guys your London outlets are serving much more tastier food!

“Great vegetarian food but awful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The bad service wont stop me coming here. The long queues on an evening of Indians and non Indians attest to amazing Indian vegetarian cuisine. service is slow and often dishes not available.

“Good food and good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The food is good, as always with the saravan bhavan standard and the prices were quite ok when compared with other restaurants serving indian food in europe. The hotel is also quite close to the gare du nord station paris. Exceptional for south indian food lovers.

“Authentic South Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Got a South Indian set meal - absolutely fantastic stuff. It has about 7-8 different curries + rice + puri + a sweet semolina pudding. After that, we did plan on going back a few more times to try out everything else they had, but unfortunately didn't get a chance.A definite must-visit.
