We had exceptionally good service and delicious food. My partner ordered extra spice and he was very pleased. They even served him several Thai peppers on the side. I had the Shahi Korma, very tasty. Much lower prices than many comparable meals we had in Paris.

Atmosphere very loaded and a little too much stuck on these neighbors. Even if dishes are not exceptional we eat there well. The price remains a little bit "Parisien", expensive for what that is.
