Good & Spicy Indian food

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... read more

Hooray for some sensible TripAdvisor reviewing (although I was actually hoping that my fellow reviewers were being a bit mean, as this restaurant was very convenient for our hotel so it was an obvious choice). The food: it's OK but on the pricey side. The trouble is that in the UK, we are spoilt for choice with fine Indian cuisine.... More

This was recommended by the staff at our hotel and they even called and placed the order for us. Food was delicious and delivered quite quickly. They forgot plasticware but the front desk clerk had no problem

This restaurant is close to Central Station and offers Indian food at a little expensive price. I had chappati and ladyfingers one evening and prawns on the following evening. Service was better on the first day and a little lax on the second. The ladyfingers tasted good but prawns were not so great.

Nothing special but edible. Staff were friendly but I felt not too focussed on us - although we were given a free non-non-acholic drink and popadoms, no effort was made to make us feel special. While it was nice to sit outside had the drawback of four separte flower sellers. Not particularly great value and not a particularly memorable meal.

This was decent Indian fare. On the day we went, we were unable to get a mixed drink as there was no bartender working that day. The menu contained a variety of dishes. I found the food to be tasty and spiced to my liking. I would definitely go back. Also, the restaurant is rather small and doesn't have a... More

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
