I'm lazy when it comes to leaving reviews, but after my experiences at this restuarant, I'm going to make the effort to leave one. I sincerely hope the owner reads it and takes it on board.

The reviews here left by many indians seems to be consistent and I agree with them - If you're not local (ideally French), you're not welcome. While the food is borderline decent, the prices are crazy. Still, that said, when you're on a holiday with kids (and in my case my kids who only ever eat indian food), you would maybe overlook the high prices as long as the experience/service was good. Sadly at this restaurant, it isn't worth the time. I went twice only because it was near to my hotel and because my kids only eat indian food so we had to bear it the second time round for them. While the lady owner was friendly and accomodating, the other male owner and his staff were awful. They treat other indians disrespectfully. Locals are treated differently in front of your own eyes - they don't even try and hide it - astonishing. Whatever their reasons, there's no excuse for not being professional and hospitable to your anyone who walks through your restaurant doors and pays good money for your food. Mr Owner - Do something about it!!! If you want more details about my expereince, please reply and I'll share it. My overall advice: If you're a tourist in the area (Indian or otherwise), avoid this restaurant because you'll either be treated with disrespect and/or be ripped off.

Average food; wonder how they have such good ratings.

1. Ordered kebabs; they were served as 2 kebabs in my main plate; no veggies, garnishing, skewer...nothing

2. Ordered biryani; there is a difference between fried rice with meat and biryani. They served chicken fried rice in a serving dish with no yoghurt or any special condiments. If they don’t want to go through the process of making biryani, they should remove it from the menu and not serve fried rice in the name of biryani!

Better find another place if you want to have authentic Indian food.

The best Indian restaurant in Paris, and the food actually tastes Indian for a change. The owners and staff are extremely sweet people. Service was super fast as well.

Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews. The food was good but there was some mix up with the order and the owner was a bit loud. Go there for the food.

Had visited this restaurant after reading the reviews.
The restaurant's interior was good, the food was average. we wanted to make some minor changes to Rice but they declined and i heard the waited mentioned the same sarcastically to his colleague.
The manager tried to friendly but came out to be rude.
