“Needed a fix of Spice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We recently tried this Indian restaurant. French food is not generally cooked with much spice therefore the best tip if you want it Indian spicy is to ask for it otherwise it won't be all that spicy or what you are used to depending where you come from. We tried a vindaloo lamb and madras chicken with extra spice requested. It was quite ok and reasonably priced with service acceptable. They allowed us to have our dog with us which is a nice French touch.

“Exceptionally bad Indian food ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014 via mobile

As an Indian settled in Belgium, this is really the worst Indian or even worse European adaptation of Indian food in Europe

It was very bland, cold and lacked Indian spices

I don't expect traditional Indian food in Europe but atleast it should be edible warm and have spices as Indian food

Really bad experience and it was not cheap either

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Service was good and the people that run this place were very pleasant.
Food was nice, but do not expect English curry in France.
Overall I would go back, but would try something different to the lamb jalfrazi.

“Spicy, but only if you ask”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

The menu is quite large so we haven't tasted it all, but what we have is very good. You have to ask if you want your dishes very spicy, as this is not the French way, but if you do then be sure to have a Kobra standing by

“Not very exciting”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

Unless you have developed a taste for unusually greasy, tired-looking and bland curries, I would not recommend this restaurant. Admittedly, the naan bread was not bad and the pliau rice also worked well, but the pickles and the curries were a real disappointment. A little fresh coriander would have helped immensely but not saved the day. Service was fine, competent and fairly quick.
