We ate here three out of five evenings in Paris, and had the buffet each time. We're vegetarians, and greatly enjoyed the Dhal Makhani, the spinach curry, and the samosas. They replenished the dishes frequently. There was a chicken curry and tandoori chicken for the meat-eaters. It was a very good meal and a good value.

We had lunch in this Indian restaurant two days. Simple Indian food. Not very spicy. We all enjoyed food. Non veg preparation was very good. Curd was tasty.

We ordered off the menu here, not the buffet. All the dishes were great. I am a vegan, and the aubergine pakoras and spinach potato curry were sensational. Great service too.

I ate the buffet here. If you like Indian cuisine this small (really small) restaurant is not horrible but is overpriced for what you get and is nothing to brag about. What is different about it is the decoration, very artistic and attractive, reason why I decided to check them out. I was disappointed, an service was mediocre. After paying... More

The restaurant is buffet-style, but maybe you will have a better experience if you order a fresh platter. The chicken was kind of tough and not very flavorful at all; nor were the potatoes. I expect a certain bare minimum with Indian food as I eat very much of it any chance I get, so I know a thing or... More

We loved the Indian cuisine. It is a buffet style with several common Indian favorites for a very reasonable price. It is very near the Notre Dame Cathedral. The wait help was very friendly and spoke excellent English.

The restaurant is very near to the Latin Quartier of Paris. The food is very good and some of the flavors very spicy. The quantity is more than what you can expect. I was enchanted by a mint cream that was soooo delightful! Although the cleaning was not the maximun (but that is true for almost all the restaurants in... More

This is an Indian restaurant very near to Notre Dame castle. Look of the restaurant was quite classy. Very much Indian with idols of worship everywhere. The food was tasty, though the service seemed to be mediocre. Would recommend it for the food and the location. Go for it!

We discovered this restaurant the day we arrived in Paris - and ate dinner there for the following two nights. We particularly enjoyed the buffet offered during the weeknights. The food - especially the chicken tikka and the bengan bharta (eggplant) - was delicious. Furthermore, the staff graciously accomodated my "special orders" (as I cannot eat some things).

We tried this restaurant after reading reviews on the internet which were mainly good, what a mistake. It seems that not one member of staff has any idea about running a restaurant. We ordered starters, main course and drinks. we got our starter after about 20 mins, the food was actually quite tasty, but drinks did not arrive, even after... More
