Malagasy Retaurants in Paris

I'm looking for information about three different restaurants or at least their neighbourhoods.

Les Majungais, 11, Cour des Petites Ecuries 75010

Le Muriel de Madagascar 5 Rue Sadi Carrot 92120 Montrouge (it's near the Mairie de Montrouge metro stop)

L'As de Madagascar 24 Place Oval, Cachan. (its near the RER stop Arcueil-Cachan)

I've been to Paris several times but I usually stick to the beaten path, or just off it. The last two restaurants seem off off the beaten path! They also get better reviews on tripadvisor. Our hotel is in the 2nd so the first restaurant would be easiest to get to, but if the other two are much better or if the neighbourhoods aren't so bad it might be worth venturing out.

Oh and if you're wondering WHY these restaurants -- my sister chose them. She spent time in Madagascar and wants to reminisce and share some dining experiences with me!

Well, the only one that is really in Paris is the first address. The other two places are in the suburbs.

I have no idea if Malagasy cuisine is anything like the offerings of Réunion or Mauritius, but there are dozens of restaurants in Paris proposing those cuisines.

Well, since the Malagasy Republic is the former name of the Democratic [sic] Republic of Madagascar, it is fairly likely that it is more or less the same cuisine, and as Kerouac notes, there are lots of restaurants with that food in Paris. I think I remember two of them in the the rue Daguerre (14th) alone.

There may, of course, be differences between one end of the island and the other, like the difference between Hanoi cuisine and Saigon cuisine in Viet Nam.

Ooh thank you! Those are much closer in, I'll see if I can find some reviews online.

I think I've always been on the hunt for my next macaron so have never noticed the abundance of these types of restaurants.

My sister will be thrilled!

In any case, I saw that the restaurant in the cour des Petites Ecuries is now closed.

Thank you Kerouac! I would have hated to waste precious time trying to find a closed restaurant! You saved me a goose chase and maybe even a hunger filled argument with my sister.

Well, I haven't verified it myself, but this seems pretty specific:
