We called restaurant directly to book take away however we spoke with very rude gentle man who hung up and advised to order it only -- we ended up ordering and food was good considering Paris doesn't have many Indian restaurants .. delivery was quick and as ordered ..

The best Indian restaurant in Paris. The food was AMAZING, great staff - smiling and welcoming people. The food was spicy just as I like it. Awesome experience.

Most authentic south Indian food outside of India, good service by some of the staff and below average by some. Personal performances by individuals. Excellent food, reasonably priced in the heart of the city just outside the Gare du nord.

Located little away from heart of Paris but easily accessible by metro/bus. Authentic South Indian(Madras) taste. Quick service. But not very spacious.

Dosas, lots of them, spicy authentic South Indian cuisine, a rarity in Paris. Atmosphere is utilitarian, service is perfunctory, but the food is sublime and the prices are ridiculously low. One can dine here for much less than McDo and get way better food.

Delicious food found just nearby the Gare du Nord station. Recommended for full Thali as well as south Indian food. Prices are obviously l'il bit higher but worth spending for the tasty food they serve.

Waited an exorbitant of time to sit down, to order, to receive our food (we were a rather large group but the first half got their meals about 20 minutes before the second half), and the worst was getting our cheese naan and drink orders. We had to ask at least five times and almost served ourselves or left before... More

It was very fast to order and get the food and the dosas were really tasty, good value, though not the biggest portions. The drinks are expensive but they have tap water on every table. On the downside it was very, very busy (even at 4pm on a Monday) - asked twice for the bill and when no bill arrived... More
