South Indian Thali - Paris

I had a short layover at Paris during my trip to Morocco in 2018. When we landed in Paris, we found that Air France staff had gone on strike and several flights from the CDG Roissy were cancelled. My flight to Marrakech was cancelled too. There was no other flight that day and I had to spend a day in Paris.


After catching up with some sleep, I ventured out to the nearby Aeroville using the complimentary airport shuttle. It was a rainy day and I was craving for some hot food. Typically, I prefer to eat local whenever I travel. However, I also like to try one Indian meal if an option is available. It gives a good insight about how different it is made out there. I came across Le Chutney (Namaste) and decided to try it out.


Serving cheese naan, thali, tandoori dishes and sweet or salted lassi in a range of flavours, the Namasté Indian restaurant claims to prepare its dishes using traditional Indian methods. Since I was quite hungry, I decided to try the Thali.

The Thali was South Indian style with a huge bowl of rice, accompanied by sambar, rasam, papad and some vegetables to go with it. They had Sabudana Kheer for a dessert. The taste was average but it was absolutely welcome when you want to eat a complete hot Indian meal abroad. The service was decent. I finished off the entire meal before visiting the city to spend my day.


Address: Le Chutney, 3 Rue des Buissons, 95700 Roissy-en-France, France
