Visited during Easter weekend break with our vegetarian son. Excellent service, lucky to have arrived when restaurant opened it's doors at 7:30. By 8pm restaurant was full and rather noisy as tables are all very close together. We ordered starters, onion bhaji this was delicious, plus raita and pakora which were also very good. For mains, vegetable curry, butter chicken... More

This place serves up some really good food for reasonable prices. Arrived a bit late enroute from the Alps to Lyon airport and wanted some good grub (so avoided going to the airport to eat); sadly there wasnt a table available for almost an hour.. So Reservation recommended! The place was full and buzzing. Still the restaurateur served up some... More

We ate at this restaurant purely because nothing else was open that late in the evening, staff were very friendly, food looked good but it was not to my Indian pallet, very much for the Tourists who are not used to the Indian cuisine. There are much better Indian Resturant in the old Lyon town. Resturant was full on both... More

As a Pakistani living in Lyon for 2 weeks so far, I was aching for home comfort and this place did just that. Highly recommend the chicken palak and the chicken masala dishes!

We know the Indian Food in out. We visited this restaurant after reading few reviews on Tripadvisor and the fact that the restaurant is in business since 1982. We ordered multiple dishes. They were either below average or just on average. Shish Kebabs were totally dry (probably due to multiple heatings). Aloo Palak was bland and desserts (Kulfi, Khir) a... More

We tried this restaurant with my children : big variety of meals, starters, meat, fish. Very tasty and not too spicy :o) in a nice place, easy to park. Good service, good food, vegies welcome. No alcohol available. Prices are medium, try to make a reservation with "la fourchette" : 30% discount if you take meals "out of the menu"...

I was surprised to find such a great Indian restaurant in Lyon, but as this is clearly becoming the gastronomy capital of the world I shouldn't have been. We called in here for dinner on the way between stops. But the food was great and service prompt.

Went here with friends as we had heard it's the best Indian in town so had high hopes. The food came in plates. A lil wierd but I guess they tried to differentiate themselves as high end restaurant by such a presentation. However , it didn't work for us. The food itself; we had vindaloo lamb, lamb saag, dahl and... More
