Had the chicken curry and butter chicken with rice and naan. It was excellent, fast service, piping hot and very good food. I would highly recommend this place, just ask them to spice it up if you are braver enough!

We had a lovely family meal. The waiter was friendly and the service overall was great. The location was super cool, as we could eat and watch everything happening on rue de la Harpe.
