When entering this passage you forget that you're in Paris and can easily imagine yourself in a town in India. The colours and smells coming from the restaurants and shops tell you stories about Madras and Maharadjas.......about tandoori and vindaloo. Enjoy it, but choose your restaurant wisely as not all is what it seems.

This street is a nice friendly area in a very multicultural part of Paris . Nearby you will have no problem finding Turkish or Morroccan food . However this is a little enclave of India . We tried several of the Indian restaurants and stocked up on spices for our return home - tumeric , garam massala , cumin seed... More

One has to run the gauntlet of touts urging and promising plenty to eat at their restaurants. What is promised doesn't measure up and I wouldn't bother going again. It was dingy and prefer La Chappel, where besides excellent meals, you can grocery shop and also find delicious Indian sweets in a nearby street.

Loads of choice for food here. Be sure to check out the short end, its intercepted by a large road but across the road they have the whole restaurant set up in the street

We recently paid a second visit to Passage Brady and the surrounding area to do some spice shopping and have a meal. As before Velan supermarket supplied most of our needs but this time we ate first and didn't have to lug bags around and could enjoy our meal all the more. We also found a restaurant this time that... More

Going to Paris to find cheap Indian eats is totally out of my orbit. Saying that,i hated the hawkers along this 216 m arcade, as well as,the tedious,ugly flotsam of gaudy, ramshackled ,uninspiring ,waste of space Even a sunny day,cannot turn ugly into interesting.

We had looked forward to meet "India in Paris" in a special and interesting area. What we experienced were "assulting" waiters all the way through the alley, which was ramshacle more than authentic. We didn't find that nice at all. But the food was ok and the prices low. I'm sure we will not return to this place another time.

The eternal student vagabond in me is always looking for good deals.....so every once in a while in Paris I head to the Passage Brady for a taste of curry and a cheap meal. Passage Brady is where a small cluster of lowcost Indo=Pakistani eateries do their thing. Quality ranges from adequate to good, prices are rock bottom. On Sunday... More

We recently stayed in the 10th and during our visit made our way towards Passage Brady. We were unsure what to expect, but it was all positive. We ordered chicken curry with rice and the plates were loaded, to the point that one serving would have served 2. Along with our meal we had a carafe of water, so in... More

This narrow street feels like a little piece of India in Paris. There are restaurants and shops and it's full of life. We had a nice meal here and in the supermarket we had some really good deals
