“Good South Indian Food”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The quality of food is authentic Indian and not a mellow down version of Indian food, ambiance is not great and servings are small in comparison to the price

Tried following :

Masala Dosa 4/5
Idili 4/5
Puri Sabji 3.5/5
Mango Lassi 4/5

“Great food. Terrible service.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

The food here is delicious with lots of vegan options. Everything we tried was full of authentic flavour.
The wait staff, however, are terribly rude and don't seem to like working there.
The food is so good though that I'd put up with that crap service just to enjoy the meal!

“authentic indian food (and service!)”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Proper authentic indian food, the way an indian restaurant should be. Noisy, chaotic place. Ideal. It's down to you to get the service, just wave and shout. At this price you can't complain. South Indan thali @12 euros has to be the best value meal in the neighbourhood,
I overnighted at Gare du Nord and was considering a French Bistro experience at 4 times the price, but when I saw this place full of indians with more indians queuing outside I knew the Bistro wasn't going to happen. Not disappointed.

“Back to basics.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

- Normal restaurant. Nothing fancy.
- Food, and good food
- Good prices / Super affordable if you're on a low budget and craving South Indian food
- don't try north indian or fake chinese food.. they don't know how to do it..

-But if you want dosa/idli/vada/sambar etc fresh out of Chennai, l guess this is the only place in Paris you should go to.
- if you go in the evenings, its always jampacked and you need to queue to get in

“Ok”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The quality of the food was just average , when compared to the Actual Saravana Bhavan in Chennai. We had South Indian Meals, but the taste was very average.
