When we travel we rarely expect to find a good Indian place to eat. Last night was an exception. Great food n service. Butter chicken was not very authentic but everything else was great. The cottage cheese dish was awesome and the Indian bread was soft and fresh. Would recommend for Indians wanting some spicy Indian food while travelling!

My favorite Indian restaurant in Geneva. Located a few steps away from the Cornavin, this place serves excellent north Indian cuisine. The service is great and the price is about right. One could sit on the sidewalk and enjoy a pleasant dinner. Great place to be.

We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst staying in Geneva & were pleasantly surprised. As with most restaurants in Geneva it wasn't cheap but the quality of the food was good & there was sufficient choice, even in the vegetarian section for us to be happy. I would recommend that you book a table as they did seem a bit put... More

This restaurant was just along from the hotel we stayed at in Geneva, we went in on chance and were asked straight away if we had a reservation which we didnt, however the staff rearranged the tables allowing us to get in, we went just after opening time so if you are going it maybe worth making a booking.

I visit Geneve somewhat regularly and head to this place on almost every visit. I'm keen on Indian food particularly in the tandoori meat and hot curry arena, this place does not disappoint and the wine list is pretty reasonably too. All in all recommend a visit.

In Geneva you will find so many indian restaurants, but location wise Spice of India is very suitable, only 5min, walk from Gare (main rly. station ), and efficient service, cordial staff and food is also very good, with authentic indian taste and hot tandoori roties.

Nice authentic tasting Indian food. No excess oil or colouring in the food either. The waiters were polite and food came out promptly. Clean and nice decor. Close to the train station as well. Would recommend this restaurant for anyone that likes authentic Indian food.
