We found a small, authentic spot with friendly staff. The buffet was excellent. We liked the variety of food offered.

After watching the food culture at Paris, we have decided, its very difficult to get a delicious spicy food. But, its just a wrong assumption. We found the place here where we got the delicious food in Indian style. The interesting thing is, the cook...More

The food here was good. The service was good. No complaints. Too bad other people had such horrible experiences. We didn't expect gourmet. It's just not that kind of place. If you're a tourist and you crave Indian food, go here. To be honest, we...More

This is a typical France Indian curry house, its something of a mystery that you can't find a really good curry in France. You'd be better of driving to Holland or just cross the channel back to good old blighty. You can get a good...More

We ate only vegetarian food here, so can't speak for the meat dishes. The entrees where passable, but the smallest entree serving I've ever received in an Indian restaurant. We shared two mains and they both tasted almost exactly the same with no flavor, no...More

This restaurant chef needs to go back to his roots and revisit how Indian food is prepared. We love Indian food and have tried it in many countries and this tastes nothing like anything we have ever tasted. I had butter chicken my husband had...More

Despite friendly service and a decent location (just off Rue Mouffetard), this restaurant is let down by the food. Although my mixed-grill starter was actually quite tasty, the rest of the meal was disappointing. The rogan josh was the colour of Heinz tomato soup and...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

Ambience de l'Inde restaurant in Paris' Left Bank, found at the top of the rue Mouffetard, is a northern Indian restaurant redolent of both the subcontinent and old Paris. There is a pair of colourful, inviting dining rooms with their scarlet napery and Indian artifacts on the ground floor, and another pair in the vaulted 12th-century caves where you are surrounded by atmospheric exposed stone walls. The menu focusses on the specialties of the Punjab, in dishes like tandoori prawns, lamb curry with almonds, and mango or pistachio kulfi. Ambience de l'Inde is open every day and, at weekends, service is non-stop.
