The staff is mostly (if not completely) Indian, and so is the clientele - this must be a good sign! You can find... More

Amazing Indian food in Lille. We were surprised by the authentic taste. The place is family run and you can see the warmth in service. The service was attentive and quick while food was prepared with utmost care!

Very nice & smiling welcome in this somewhat shabby restaurant. The food though was good, even if different from Indian food you receive in England (less fatty, more creamy); and everything was really fresh and homemade (the bread, lentils and kulfi were particularly nice, and the meat very tender). For info the owners are from Pakistan, and the food is... More
