Unexpected Sub-Continent Excellence in Swiss near-Countryside

This extraordinary operation opposite the Oberdorf Rail Station has reputedly been operating since the 1800's--I can't verify that (thought the fantastic architecture would seem to bear that out) but I can promise ~ if you care to venture that far out of town (nearly to Horgen) ~ utterly authentic... read more

The traditional Swiss villa provides probably one of the most unexpected interiors to this lovely Indian restaurant. The food is simply delicious and very nicely set. The menu offers something to cater to every taste. I had a vegetarian course and shrimps with rice and naan bread, and I loved them. The best way to experience the menu is to... More

Went here for lunch and it was nice. Thought there would be a bigger option to pick from in the buffet. Maybe next time we will go and try just from the menu to avoid dissapointment. Service was good.

I find the Swiss not to have a very strong palet - this is probably why I love Chalet India so much. I travel to Horgen often for business - and a visit to this restaurant is always in order. Very good staff, with good recommendations and some decent wines. Also the portions are quite big - so easy on... More

We visited on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was full. Prompt service and a good choice of Indian dishes. Lovely evening.

Hands down best Indian restaurant in Zurich. And definitely my favorite Indian restaurant in Switzerland. I'm not an Indian food connoisseur but I did live in a neighborhood nicknamed "curry hill" while living in NYC and have eaten my fair share of Indian dishes. This place is the bomb. Can't wait to go back! Mmmmmmmmm

My third visit in CHalet India. First two have been good but now the quality of food is really depreciating. Pros- Good view, good ambience. Cons- Bad and cold food, no taste, not friendly staff, too expensive for the quality. I hope this can help the restaurant to improve as i would love to visit again once its better.

All vegi appetisers were bought frozen from market and just made hot in restaurant. ( I can as well do that at home )... More
