Another covered arcade in the neighbourhood, the Passage Brady dates from 1828. Nowadays, this little piece of India in the centre of Paris is home to many Indian, Mauritian and Pakistani businesses. Just 700 metres from the Hotel Paris La Fayette, spices not found elsewhere and other products of Ayurvedic medicine carry you to the other side of the world.
The arcade of Paris’s “Little India” is especially famous for its excellent restaurants where you can give free rein to a sudden desire for dal, samosas or tandoori chicken. An oasis of calm in the heart of the liveliness of the 10th arrondissement, and an authentic, if unusual face, of a cosmopolitan Paris.
