Suraj Indian Restaurant

The The Suraj Restaurant Indien offers "haute gastronomie" at quite reasonable prices in the Alesia area in Montparnasse. It's not too far a walk from the discount "haute couture" outlets near Alesia metro station, and is well worth finding.

Our party recently enjoyed one of the very finest Indian meals we've had in years, in a beautifully decorated and well-lit dining room. The motif is elegantly colonial, with elephants, buddhas, and photographs of Sai Baba smiling beatifically on the happy diners.

The menu offered all the standard fare one expects, from curries to tandooris; and two different lunch "menus" were offered that day. Food arrived quickly, and we devoured some delightful vegetarian samosas for appetizers. This was followed by some Chicken Tikka and a wonderfully creamy Chicken Korma with the obligatory ground cashew nuts in the sauce. On the side were Onions Rajvee and Naan and Chapatis. Every item was of the highest quality, and the plates decorated with pride.

And if that wasn't enough, the menu price also included a half liter of great French table wine and ice cream for desert. All this for 30 euros.

Did I mention the solid silver Christofle flatware and the beautiful china? I may also have forgotten to tell you about the waiter who also entertained us with stories about Sai Baba...

But this is one of those magical places that if I tried to find again probably wouldn't exist, so if anyone else actually makes it to the Suraj please leave your comments here!

More Info: The nearest Metro stations are Plaisance or Porte de Vanves. Open daily - plates to go.

I found about Suraj from this website, and they had a very good food, and the customer service is very nice. They can add the spice as per the personal taste too. I prefer to take my friends again
