Not far from Charles de Gaulle Square and the Opera, this was great food, great service and a pleasant experience. Some of the best curry I have ever had in Europe.

Well priced and, if you're craving a "British" curry, this place ticked the boxes. Good Naan, chicken and lamb.

This small restaurant is easy to miss - it doesn't look impressing but it is a little gem. Food is delicious and fresh. Service is very friendly and efficient. I will definitely come back. Yummy food!

This place has a exhilarating ambiance, The neat place, staff etiquette, the royal treatment. The service was fantastic, even though there was a rush , the service never failed , they were constantly concerned about our needs and feedback :-)and above all the culinary skills at best :-) Right from authentic Indian cuisine to cold cuts, Legumes Biryani was aromatic...
