We arrived around 21 but the owner happily accommodated us in his restaurant and we were surprised by the quality and nice sized portions of the plates that arrived on the table. we enjoyed every last grain of rice and drip of wine during our quick dinner before travelling further down the road.

We've been here several times now since moving to the area - in fact we moved to the area because we were searching rather urgently for a rental, came to the town to try the restaurant which someone had recommended, decided we liked it here and found somewhere to live!

We'd certainly recommend the restaurant. Like the previous reviewer said, it is quite mild for British palates, and as the owner himself is keen to point out, he and his cooking are Sri Lankan rather than Indian, despite the restaurant's name. We've found his beef dishes are the best so far, the meat is beautifully tender and well cooked and he uses unusual spices he's happy to tell you about. The prawn starter is good, the biryani a bit bland. I like the naan bread, but he has no tandoor so it's different from a typical tandoori naan, quite solid and doughy, and as his portions really are quite generous I seldom have much room for it and end up taking it home to eat later! (He's very good about packing up the leftovers for take away.)The kulfi is certainly good but incredibly rich and sweet!

The décor is very attractive and he's a lovely guy, clearly well known and popular in the community. Well worth trying and an unusual find in a small French town.

Was recommend this place and wasn't disappointed. Although a very small place its well managed. The menu is simple which means what you order is well prepared and cooked to perfection. The chef on our visit was the waiter, wine waiter and washer upper but he he did not not flap and the service was good.

We went here to celebrate my partner's birthday. As Britons living in France, we miss spicy food, and are willing to travel for an hour by car to get an Indian dinner. So we have been to St Malo, St Brieuc, even Brest and Quimper ( 2 hours away) to try to sample some authentic Indian food.
This restaurant is run by Sri Lankans, not Indians in fact. Most "Indian" restaurants, I believe, adapt their cuisine to a French palate, so for British clients, the food doesn't taste really authentic, as it isn't hot enough. Our starters of samosas/rolls/prawns were quite bland and mushy. My main, tandoori chicken tikka, was very tasty and a copious dish. The dhal was creamy. My partner's biriani was so-so, the naan bread a bit doughy, the rice seemed reheated. The pistachio kulfi was ace! Great coffee too.
St Méen is a small town, so the restaurant was almost empty on a Tuesday night. I can understand that some short-cuts have to be taken to make a living. The waiter/proprietor was a lovely, friendly man and spoke a variety of languages including English, which will be useful for tourists. Overall, a happy experience, but still not what we are looking for as a regular spice-fix spot.
