I chose a lunch menu for 14,90 Euro which started with a plate of Samosa with three chutneys and a fair portion of green salad. Main course was chicken curry with a cheese naan and basmati rice. Chose coffee over dessert.
Ample parking opposite the restaurant. Ambience is not overly kitschy. Layout is generous. Cutlery and especially crockery is of good quality and size. A young lady waited the table attentively. Pakistani ghazal singers' vocal music played softly.
The presentation of all items was well thought through and exceeded the norms of a Pakistani restaurant in the west. Samosa had more a flavor of spring rolls stuffed with potatoes from the south Indian dish Masala Dosa.
Chicken curry was ordinary. Despite request for making it spicy, it was not even medium hot. Cheese naan was ok as was the basmati rice. Coffee was good.
Owner sat at another table with his feet up on another chair facing the clients. Seemed detached and disinterested in welcoming clients or enquiring with them abt the food.
In this region Shalimar Restaurant in Ferney Voltaire remains the best lunch option in terms of quality:price:service ratio.
Le Nabab would be a distant second.

The food was tasy enough and the service was quick, too quick. When the food arrived it was cold, they hadn't reheated it properly. It had to be sent back to be reheated.

Went here a few weeks back, food was fine..we were sat next to the door..only to find out the door is kept open all night and it wasnt a particularly hot evening.. One of our main courses was wrong..we sent it back, only to get the same dish back 5 mins later. Restaurant was fine but nothing to rave about.

The Nebab served some of the worst Indian food I have ever had.

I never expected food that was just emptied from a can including processed vegetables which one finds in French supermarkets and a ready made sauce. All that served about 3 minutes after you've ordered. Of course, it's not cheap either.

The other Indian restaurant in Divonne isn't great but at least the food is fresh and acceptable.
