Time Out (2016) “On choisit pour commencer des rolls, de croustillants bâtonnets panés au mélange de légumes et de soja (3,50 €). Puis on continue pour le plat avec une paratha fromage (l’un des pains les plus populaires de la cuisine indienne) accompagnée de trois délicieux curry aux légumes (8,50 €).”

Le Fooding (date unknown) “Partout, les mêmes statues de Ganesh enguirlandées et les mêmes spécialités du Sud de l’Inde: baji (beignets de farine de lentilles) aux aubergines à tremper dans trois sauces (yaourt menthe, yaourt carotte ou chutney de tomates ; dosa (grande crêpe de farine de lentilles garnies) ; grand choix de currys (dont un dal bien crémeux); incontournable biryani (riz sauté); et iddiyapam, de fines nouilles de blé et de riz.”

1 Comment on Krishna Bhavan

  1. As an Indian and mightily hungry for good Indian food in Paris, I headed out to Krishna Bhavan after reading the reviews here and elsewhere. I ordered my standard yardstick for South Indian cuisine: a masala dosa. I did not like what I got: the dosa was stodgy, greasy, and fell with a thud to the bottom of my stomach where it stayed. The sambar was so-so. The dining room was cramped to say the least. I can’t recommend this restaurant at all.
    A week later I went to Saravana Bhavan: here the dosa was as it should be; light, airy, crisp, tasty. I have returned several times to SB and find it to be consistently good. Go there instead. It’s more authentic.
