Tried them in all in the immediate area and it is the best one but it is more expensive than the rest. Excellent mixed starter but the main dish could of been hotter for my taste, maybe that was my fault for not asking. Big portion of rice but main dish was small and the lamb was a little tough....

No reservations on a Monday night. Difficult to find parking in this neighborhood but be persistent - the food and service here us worth a 3 block walk in the rain. Small wine list, good selection of appetizers and mains. All the standards done right. English on the main menu so that you order what you know. Samosas were excellent,... More

Service was rude, they treated us with disdain when they thought we were not going to spend much money (we have spent about €25 for each person though). The dishes were not like typical Indian dishes. The dish I ordered was like ground meat floating in double cream with just a pinch of spices. It was impossible to distinguish the... More

We decided to try this restaurant based on the good reviews it had received on this website. We were not disappointed. The food was very good, the waiter was very attentive and was happy to speak to us in English. We spotted 2 other restaurants close by but they only had a handful of people in whereas Shandrani was almost... More

The service is blatent in your face rude (mainly the young lad) whom I feel has an issue with the English. Firstly if you are... More

I'm a great fan of this friendly but discreet family-run Indian restaurant. The ambiance is classy and the food is really excellent ... i think it would be difficult to find better Indian cuisine in France. Living in Versailles for many years, when I think Indian food, it is the Shandrani ... and it's a few doors away from the... More
