… well you might, if you have travelled Asia already. But if your experience is from western restaurants only, brace for e very special dinner at the Sur Mandir: While looking more like a casual dining place, they serve authentic Indian cuisine well worth a detour to try. The said, keep in mind: This is not a fast food place.... More

Did not actually try the food but the owner attitude towards his customers is very strange and impolite , he almost asked us to leave his restaurant because we needed some time to order ! So we actually immediately left... We were very unpleased ... Never seen such treatment and lack of respect.

Real Indian food for Anglo Saxons who like their curries like at home. The German palate thinks that Cheese & Onion crisps are too spicy and so many Indian restaurants serve mild food. However, this one gives you a choice across the full spectrum. They are a little off the beaten track and are expensive but you get what you... More

The first thing you are given is not the menu, but a single poppadom (for 4 people!) which issupposedly spicey in a "Germanic" way and thus the "lowest" strength of "spicyness". Total baloney. This goes on with "Germanc plus", "Indo-germanic light", ending with "Indian plus". I wanted to order "Indo-Germanic", expecting it to be medium-hot, as one might expect from... More

I am not sure about the food but the owner is pathetic and a torture. He is so talkative that he forces you to listen to his rubbish even when he knows that you are not interested. He wont let you enjoy your food happily. Apart from that he is very offending towards Indians and doesn't respect them at all,... More

The food is really good, make sure you choose spicyness level wisely. They will give you a reference to have a taste. On the other hand the restaurant is quite pricey.

If you love your Indian food spicy, you will love Sur Mandir. We have hit every Indian restaurant in town and Sur Mandir is hands down our favorite. Delicious food and a nice atmosphere. Reservations recommended.

Recommended to me by a cookery teacher from India and I wasn't disappointed. Very often I see Indian nationals eating there which I always think is a good sign.You can order your meals in four major levels of hotness and there are also levels in between. Be careful, Indian level means Indian level.

It's really small restaurant with very close sitting. Their service it's quick. Menu is typical, you won't get nothing really special here - just as in others Indian restaurants. But it's quite and the meal is just not bad. I tried this restaurant several times during 3 years and It's positively always the same. It might be your food point... More
