Time Out Says

4 out of 5 stars

From the thalis to the naans, everything at this contemporary Indian restaurant is full of dazzling flavours.

With its plain white frontage and understated interior design, this small Indian restaurant offers modern cooking in a sleek and stylish setting. Owners Stéphanie and Arnaud de Saint-Simon have already had great success with MG Road in the 3rd arrondissement, and they aim to top that here at Desi Road.

The extensive menu of ‘small plates’ for sharing can be hard to choose from, but standouts include the healthy and spicy ‘Malai Prawn’ (prawns cooked in cream with curry leaves, mustard and freshly grated coconut) and the ‘lamb cake’ (with potatoes, curry yoghurt and cress). If you like keeping your food to yourself, however, you could always opt for the thali, a large individual tray containing six bowls with curried meat and vegetables, dal, dumplings, yoghurt with herbs and a rice-based dessert with saffron and raisins. This is probably the more economic option, as thalis cost between €22-€28 and a typical individual dish is €12.
