Best pakistani lunch in Paris?

Hello all,

While in Paris, I came to think of something: In my home country, Norawy, quality pakistani food is unobtainable. But here, in a "metropole", it should be possible...

In short: Where should we go?

We are interested in all prive levels above "low", but willing to go far if necessary.

  1. Hamha - I wouldn't bother. Paris isn't good for Pakistani or Indian food, there are some restaurants around Passage Brady and up around Gare du Nord which are OK if desperate.
    Better to grab the Eurostar to London and head for Tayabs

      I wouldn't say "desperate". But indeed Indians and Pakistani are not the highlight of food in Paris, not even of ethnic food in Paris. You probably won't find authenticity, but there's stuff people in here like. Pakistani central is rue du faubourg Saint-Denis, almost at Métro La Chapelle. There are pleasant restaurants all around the city but I am not aware of any reliable listing. The fanciest ones are Hindra by Saint Philippe du Roule and the one on rue Dauphine whose name I can't remember right now. There's also a good chic one on av. Bosquet, a famous one by Chaussée d'Antin called New Balal, a pleasant one by Ducasse's les Lyonnais.
