“Tasteless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We went here despite it having mixed revues as, being a family comprising of fussy eaters and vegetarians, we had had pizza 3 nights in a row.
However the curries were very bland and the sauce that they were cooked in were just like gravy really.
The aubergine was very soggy, the chicken curry was on the bone, there were only 2 pieces of lamb in the korma.
The naan bread was dry and unauthentic tasting and the basmati rice was unfragrant and bland.
They sold Heineken and Kingfisher beers and G&T, but I didn't know what any of the other alcoholic beverages were.
On the plus side the service was friendly and prompt and the prices were reasonable.

“Average Indian food in La Rochelle”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We tried this place when on holiday as it looked good on passing by and the menus were in English. We ordered the tasting menu (€22) and veg thali to eat. The veg wasn't good at all and lacked spiciness. The tasting platter had one piece of meat each (chicken, salmon and lamb). If u like a good authentic curry, then this is not for you. If you like something different from the French cuisine then give it a go. Overall, poor service as we waited long and there is no flexibility on the ordering (even for kids). Good was slow to arrive.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

After reading mixed reviews we decided to try a take away. Living in the midlands and use to very good curry houses we had high expectations.
So i am trying to write this with an unbiased opinion, if like us you realy enjoy your curry this is not for you, if you fancy a change and something different then give it a go, but don't expect the same quality.
Just a warning some meat in the curries is still on the bone, now this could be down to us not interpreting the menu correctly
The restaurant is in a top area of La Rochelle surrounded by many bars and restaurants

Fantastic! I really enjoyed this curry, perfect with Kashmiri Rice and Nan. Very friendly and welcoming - English spoken.

“Must visit Indian Restaurant in La Rochelle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food quantity and quality equal the price you pay, and the price isn't as high as other restaurants on this street. Try their Thali Delhi or chicken Roghan gosh. The atmosphere is nice and don't forget to also try their mango lassi.
