Response from benoitsiat, Owner at La Maison
Responded 28 Feb 2017
Hi Guests. That is the first time I respond to a comment after openning LA Maison on 1st November 2009. Just to say that we have never served toffu nor frozen French fries... May be some confusion. Please come and visit again. We charge Rs 800 only for a full menu with 5 to 6 ''à la carte'' courses, including desert. Rs 250 for kid from 2 to 4, Rs 400 for kid from 4 to 12.

"The rooms next to the balcony definitely have a better view"
"We had to ask several times to get the correct directions. At least one sign post from the main road would be more than helpful."
"All rooms are on the ground floor, choose a room which ha a bath tub you can easily get into"
