The food is simply bad. It is difficult to find good Indian restaurants in Switzerland, but this belongs defintely to the worst I have ever been. It somehow looks like Indian food but tastes bland and pre-cooked or out of a tin.

I organized my farewell lunch there for my labmates and had pre-booked a place for 17people, settled the menu as well as the price. After we had our lunch the manager completely ignored our previous settled rate and overcharged me immensely. This kind of thing is not good for a restaurants reputation. The food was OK, nothing spectacular to Indian... More

Ambience is also very good and last food is... More

We went there for dinner. We ordered some snacks and dinner, food was tasteless and quality was also not good. And price was very high. It was fully waste of money. We will never go there again.

It´s always difficult to review Indian restaurants if you eat in them outside of India as you could argue that eating Indian cuisine in Switzerland or the UK for example is about as Indian as frogs legs.

Have been using this restaurant for many years. One of the better Indians in town but the prices have been creeping up and value for money is sometimes questionable, Great Nan bread from the authentic tandoor.

I have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed it. the chicken madras was the best one I've had in Basel. Better flavour than you'll get at most Indian restaurants in Basel. The service is a bit slow, yet friendly.
