The best Indian food in Paris is most likely to be found in my kitchen; but the next best option is Akash, located in the 4th arrondissement: http://www.akash.fr/
I stumbled upon it whilst searching for Ras Malai, those sweet sugary balls of pure bliss. I ordered my usual: lamb korma (hot) with garlic naan, mango lassi, and Ras Malai. I asked for my dish to be served «très très très piquante» and it actually came out … mildly spicy! This is a million times spicier than I’ve found in the few Indian restaurants I’ve tried to date. And the mango lassi was a real mango lassi, not that milkshake-style crap one tends to get 50% of the time. All in all, the food was good, the service was excellent, and I had an enjoyable time. The one caveat: it’s pricey (for el cheapos like me). My usual cost just over 31€. But can you really put a price on happiness?
Well, yes. But for the occasional night out on the town, Akash is a good choice.
