Food is good but unusually slow service and hot as hell in the interior. The ac seemed turned on but no air whatsoever came out of it... would not return.

My family really enjoy Indian food, being in the South of France it seemed a little strange to be going to and Indian restaurant. It was well worth a visit. We hadn't made a reservation so were shown to a table inside, which was lovely. Although a little slow to take our order the food arrived quickly and was delicious.... More

Very deceiving from the front (especially when not open) but completely different when sitting down. Maitre de had his hands full as busy do a little wait between courses but definitely worth the wait.

Probable the best Indian I have ever eaten in. Not slow, 17 minutes from order to presentation for a complex dish. During which we nibbled popadoms with their sweet, fiery and minty chutneys. And the cheapest rose wine was simply wonderful. We are going again ...

Went by chance in this restaurant, and found one of the best Indian restaurant in south France! Crispy samosa, savoury chicken tikka and smooth spicy lassi (asked for extra spice and made me to perfection). Price in line with avarage Indian Restaurant in France and Italy. Owner very friendly and professional. Will return for sure, it was a great discovery.

Tucked away on a quiet corner near the ancient fort on the old port of Menton this little restaurant not only has excellent food, pretty decor but most importantly a fabulous young Sri Lankan owner who gives a charming feeling to the atmosphere . Whilst surrounding restaurants serve unimaginative food here the room is full of local Mentonnais enjoying the... More

A real Indian restaurant with a nice terrace that can be used in winter too. We went with children and the guy that runs the restaurant was very kind in following our necessities. The plates are not huge but if you pick up many choices you will be able to taste different tastes. The saffron rice is the best for... More

Very elegant and pretty restaurant. Service is great, the manager is a very kind gentleman, always welcoming and flexible even when asked to modify dishes. Try the vegetarian dishes, so tasty and special. Best restaurant in Menton.

We spent 5 days in Menton and ate at this restaurant twice! The food is excellent and pretty reasonably priced. The menu is comparable to Indian menus in the UK - which is actually quite difficult to get in this part of France/Italy. We went the first time on an extremely rainy evening with not many people out and about... More
