I have a good feeling; I don’t know if it’s Saint-Germain-des-Prés or Rue de Rivoli but it’s really Paris. It’s a good blend of French charm and more Indian luxury, it’s well done. All my congratulations.”

Speaking on the occasion, Kazem Samandari, Executive Chairman, L’Opéra said, “L’Opéra is becoming bigger and even more beautiful with each outlet. It is overwhelming to enter the Basant Lok Market with a 2 floored outlet. We will also have our outlet in Civil Lines and our first-ever outlets in Mumbai and Chennai coming up very soon.” “L’Opéra has entered a new phase of its development. By the end of the current financial year, we shall operate over 20 outlets in Delhi-NCR and most probably have opened our first Salon de Thé in Mumbai,” he adds.

“From doing our initial product trials in the kitchen of the French Embassy to opening over a dozen outlets and a production facility in Noida, we have always worked towards making the brand one of the best French bakery and pastry chains in India.”

There are so many achievements we had along the way such as making 8000 (eight) thousand macarons for a wedding, catering for the international Formula one race, hosting the MBA students from Oxford University at our production facility which keep us all motivated,” he continues.


Located in the heart of Basant Lok (Priya Market) and situated close to various embassies in Vasant Vihar, it is an authentic French style Salon de Thé spread over two floors that can accommodate up to 42 seated guests.

Fitted with Louis XVI style furniture in carved wood and marble top tables adorning carnations in pastels, the outlet exudes Parisian refinement and luxury at its finest. From the beautiful chandelier to elegantly framed portraits on the wall depicting the city of Paris, everything adds to the plush décor and ambiance.

 Huge glass mirrors make space look virtually bigger while the chic woodwork accentuates the walls. The stunning pendant lights over the counter make the space even brighter and livelier while the generous glass facades elegantly adjoin the inner and outer spaces and recreate the Parisian sidewalk café experience.

There is a diverse range of food palate that is reasonably priced with an excellent value proposition. For those looking for classic French quick bites, there’s Croque Monsieur (made with in-house bread and filled with béchamel sauce, ham, and cheese), Vol-au-Vent, Onion and Tomato Tarts with Goat Cheese and healthy soups such as Pumpkin and Coconut Milk Soup. Partake in the newly-launched products such as the brand’s maiden Vegan Range, Chocolate Tart, and the much loved Orange & Almond Tart that one can pair with an impressive selection of juices and freshly brewed coffee, teas, and infusions while soaking in the beautiful ambiance.

An all-day dining destination, it also offers a gourmet all-day breakfast menu that features classic French breakfast options such as French Toast with organic honey, fluffy French omelet with luxurious fillings and hot croissant sandwiches to name a few. For the health-conscious, there is a range of fresh juices, cereal bread, eggs and salads, organic granola served with yogurt and choice of milk and heart-warming vegan soups that are wholesome and make for a delicious substitute.
