We booked the restaurant after reading the very positive reviews and were not disappointed. Although I am not vegetarian I do prefer plant based food, which can often be lacking in flavour. Not so at Narenj, the lentil main course that I had was absolutely...gorgeous - I could have eaten two of them! A nice touch was the two small taster dishes at the start of the meal. We will definitely be back next summer!!More

We just could not fault this place. The food is exceptional and well thought out. Short menu but everything we had was fantastic. Excellent service and the nicest chef ever, coming out to meet all the guests and answering any questions. I can’t recommend enough.

The food was unusual and delicious, a pure gastronomic delight. Family run, husband chef and wife and son serving, so friendly and although very busy treated us like guests in their own home explaining each dish in broken English and caring about their food. Thank...you for such a memorable visit.More

One should book in advance, this place is very popular, unfortunately as the trend in France is at the moment you can only book over Facebook, and I don't want to be member of this club, I found a way. The food was great and...the owner was very attentive to our needs.More

One day in Orlean so where to eat ! Obviously check out trip advisor - NARENJI Rated as NO 1, and was vegetarian friendly . Didn’t disappoint - 3 course set menu was €27 half a bottle of wine €16. The proprietor, was so amazing...she accommodated us even though restaurant was fully booked - ( but we came in early, and others were turned away). Now the food - starter was smoked egg plant with a delicious salad, falafel etc for main (hubby had beef) and rice pudding with candy floss for pud. Thankyou for a special evening and please thank your staff !More
