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. The hygiene levels is this restaurant are questionable, The steel plate our food was served in was dirty. The food was terribly greasy. We tasted one of the worst palak paneers here. We simply cannot recommend this restaurant.

  2. 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.
