“Oh my!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Why was I trying to eat Indian food in Paris? I shouldn't have. The gal who helped me asked me to speak French. OK but Agneau Korma (lamb Korma) is French and Indian, as was she. The meal was mediocre but I come from England and the land of fab Indian so perhaps they just can't compete. Do not get the cheese nan. I shudder at the thought of the runny and not good cheese inside. A waste of money.

“Great Nepali food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Being of Nepali heritage I have started to dine in Nepali restaurants on holiday. Coming from England I have always been spoiled for great south asian cuisine with many great restaurants to choose from, however my experience on the continent has been rather disappointing. This restaurant however is an exception to my previous statement.

I found the quality of the food here to be excellent, with a my dish (Lamb Jalfrezi) having a very rich and full flavour. To my delight I found the meat to be of very high quality and was tender and juicy. I had pillau rice with peas and the special Sagar Matha stuffed naan bread (stuffed with cheese and topped with coriander) as sides. The pillau rice was well cooked with delicate complimentary flavours and the naan bread was very soft and tasty.

The service was very good and the wait between ordering and our meal arriving was very reasonable (it was a little busy). The waiter was very friendly and very knowledgeable. The restaurant itself has a nice vibe about it, and was nicely decorated. The waiter and I even had a very nice conversation after I exposed my Nepali ancestry.

As a little side note I do want to mention if you are used to generous english portions of curry, be aware that although I found the portions to be adequate they are a lot smaller than your average english curry house. This is the case if every other south asian restaurant I have visited in Europe and this place is no exception. This is not a criticism but more of a statement of fact to be aware of.

To finish I would very much recommend this restaurant! This place is far from average as some of the other reviews might have you believe! If you are in Paris or staying nearby do visit this restaurant!!!

“Nice evening with good friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Some evenings you look for a nice and quiet place to have a dinner with friend where you can chat and enjoy a good meal. I love curry but sometimes it is too spicy for some people.
This place was nice, quiet and the meal was really good. They provide spicy sauces on the side instead to be in the meal so everybody can decide how spicy he wants to eat.
