Excellent food , very good chicken served with all types of sauces including the famous chicken tandoori Excellent service Do not go to any of the other Indian restaurants of Place Charost or Place du Marché as this one is without any doubt the best one in Versailles. Do not forget to book your table in advance as the restaurant... More

First ever disappointment from Tripadvisor. Service is hostile and inhospitable. Dishes are served with used and re-used decoration (carottes, tomatoes, ...) they are dry and unappetizing. Dishes have no taste whatsoever. An average cuisine not deserving the 4* it got.

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
