Our hotel was at a walking distance from this place and hence we had food here 4 - 5 times. Quality is top notch and ambiance is decent. The place is very popular and hence a bit crowded. For vegetarians, this is a very useful option for food

Have been there several times. The restaurant is fully vegetarian with a variety of choice available. The food was delicious but the portions were small. The price is too excessive for the quality of the service and the lack of space inside. The staff could be more friendly (depends on who serves you). The washroom is a mess. Located near... More

Nothing special I was excited to see that this Indian restaurant is fully vegetarian, but sadly they do not label the vegan options, nor is it that easy to ask for their vegan option. Sadly, I was slightly disappointed after eating here. The food was quite tasty but the portions were small. The bathrooms were unhygienic. The staff was only... More

Was here to have brunch the first day we arrived to Paris restaurant was close to station Gare du Nord . It took a while for them to attend our table we were still having our food while the waiter came to clean the table which was kind of rude. Food tasted good & Coffee was excellent.

This is one of the most authentic southern Indian food I've eaten in Paris. The dosa and sambar were fantastic.

Authenticate Indian vegetarian food. Little bit on the expensive side as a Thalia will cost you around 18 Euros per meal. Very conveniently located. Close to Paris Gare du Nord station is around 4 5 minutes walk from the station.

Iv been to many sarvana bhavans and used to frequent the New York one, and have to say that this is not the best Iv been to. The food was quite oily and spicy. The only thing I liked on the menu was the South Indian thali. Rest was good / average.

I am a vegetarian and I was worried when I landed at Gare du Nord on what I would eat in Paris. While getting out of the station I just saw on map that there is a Sarvana Bhavan nearby. I thought of trying the meal. That day and today, every week I travel I always eat the awesome vegetarian... More

As this is a part of a chain I was a little surprised to find the food very different. Not bad for a quick dosa...the staff could be more polite & approachable.
