Come along to New Jhelum, a well-settled spot in Paris 2nd arrondissement. At 95 rue Richelieu, you will discover this resolutely modern restaurant serving, behind its contemporary setting, some hearty and indulging food. Genuine flag bearer of the Indo-Pakistani food, it is a sure bet.

As a starter fall for an assortment to share based on Tikka chicken, vegetable, meat or mixed samosa, pan-seared Tarka shrimps, without forgetting the famous cheese naan made by the book. Pair it all with some lassi, the famous yogurt-based drink served here plain or with fruits, and this is the perfect introduction to start your culinary journey.

Here no bad choice possible, everything is delicious. But, be warned: prepare your bellies because portions are generous. Fortunately, the restaurant can wrap leftovers so you can extend this fantastic experience at home. As for us, we went for the Shai Korma lamb, very tender with dry fruits for some crunch, as well as the Butter Chicken, Tandoor-grilled chicken, the restaurant’s specialty. Accompany these dishes with a side of biriani, saffron rice, or Jawad rice with nuts. The latter is likely to please sweet/savory flavor fans.

To wrap this tasting up, enjoy sophisticated desserts. Nothing better after a hearty dessert than ending on a fresh note! Although the restaurant serves ice cream bowls, we recommend you try the Kulfi, some Pakistani ice cream based on vanilla, pistachios, almonds, cashews, cardamom and a bit of rose. A wonderful discovery that finishes convincing us to come back.

We also loved the Kheer, a sort of Indo-Pakistani rice pudding served with the ice cream of your choice. With the good advice from New Jhelum, we chose the rose one and we are not disappointed! Last but not least, we cannot resist our guilty pleasure, the Gulab Jamun, a kind of cardamom fritter, super moist, coming in 4, with vanilla ice cream. Calling all tea lovers, think about trying the powerful Chai served here.
