We opted for the prix fixe, 3-course dinner offer for 12.90 euros. What we particularly disliked was the fact that our server guided us towards ordering naans/rotis, not caring to clarify that these were not included in the meal offer. The end result was that our eyes popped when we received the bill.

The food is nothing to write home about. All the curries looked and tasted similar. Our request for the curries to be cooked without cream did not seem to have been fully honored. Also the onion bhajia appetizer came with just 5 measly onion rings and a little leaf of lettuce. However the size of the tandoori chicken appetizer was surprisingly large, comparing with the likes of raita and onion rings as other appetizer options. It just did not make sense.

What we found particularly interesting was the fact that the appetizers were being served at every table from a foil-wrapped tray which had a very nice flowery display made out of carrots, but soon we started wondering about how long its been around.

The space is also fairly tight, worsened by the solid wood carved and ornate furniture and fixture. We sat closer to each other and guests at the adjacent tables than we would have liked. Lastly, we wished that the music that was being played was a little more modern and lively.

Overall a below-par experience.

It seems that ethnic food is the most reliable. We have not been too impressed with our meals in France, although we are admittedly not going to places with Michelin stars (we're not that rich ...) But the Old Kashmir had a good deal on a two- or three-course meal that basically tasted like Indian food anywhere. Sometimes that's a good idea, and we were happy.

Should have known that a restaurant in such a touristy part of town/street will not be great. I ordered thali vegetharian which for 15 Euros is not cheap and small amont of food and chicken curry which was ok. I also disliked the fact that the waiter asks you which kind of naan you want (like it is included in the menu or price of the meal) when you nevertheless get rice with all the dishes you order for free and naan you have to pay. There is one good thing about this restaurant and that is halwa. it is absolutely wonderful.

We live in the south of France. Sadly there are no Indian restaurants that serve spicy food here. We found this restaurant through Tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. We mentioned to the waiter that we are starved of spice and he organised a HOT curry. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, fast service.

Nothing spectacular here. But then again Paris is not world famous for Indian food! The meal was OK but then again it should have been better than OK. If you are expecting the sort of Indian meal you find in countries with large Indian communities like the UK, US or Australia, you will leave slightly disappointed.

Service was efficient and friendly--no complaints there. And it wasn't expensive. Place was clean.

While the meal was verging on underwhelming by comparison to Indian meals available in other cities, remember that there isn't a great background in Indian cooking in France and the meal I had was consistent with other Indian meals I have had in Paris, none of which have been particularly memorable experiences, alas, at least compared to those in other countries.

In summary: nothing exceptional.
