Good Service, below average food

Visited with a couple of friends for dinner. Ordered chicken kurma, beef masala and chicken tandoori. With exception of the Chicken tandoori, the food was quite blend. No typical indian taste to the food, no spyciness no twist. just boring. But I have to say that the service was very friendly and... read more

This restaurant has nothing to do with real Indian food! It is some random european mishmash made to look orange/red and pose as Indian food. Plus it is more expensive than other places! I understand that people have to modify the taste to suit Europeans but this guy has totally lost it. For actual Indian food lovers, don't go here.... More

The food here is tasty and authentic Indian food though a bit too spicy. Their garlic naans are huge and quantity is good. The prices are on the higher side but that's everywhere in Switzerland. Overall a good place if you are craving for Indian food in lucerne.

Well atleast the best that we had in the 3 days that we were in Lucerne ! Took the effort to walk an extra ~500mtrs to get here (from Kanchi) and we were glad we did. Good Indian food selection. Ambience is average but better than Kanchi. Pricing is similar to Kanchi. They served delicious and spicy (at our request)... More

The Ownerfamily ("Donnie and Ronnie) are very friendly and give you a warm welcome-feeling. The food taste very good and the Banana-Leaf-Menu is just great. It is also suitable for Vegans (please ask in advance). Also they got a few vegetarian menus. We like this location.

People at restaurant are courteous but its overpriced USD 60-70 for a buffet. Its easy to find on Steinenstrasse and you cant miss it. Food is semi-fresh and not good in taste. Ambience is okay. So except for the location there isnt anything pretty exciting. Go only if you're devoid of options which you wont be when you're in the... More

We went there with a family. Food was not cooked properly. I feel it was stale food. Manager/waiter was so rude that you will not enjoy your food. They will make you feel that they are charging less amount so you won't be provided with any service or humanity. Money is less but who wants to compromise with health. Poor... More

The lunchtime buffet was disappointing - poor selection. In all fairness, the food was good if you happen to prefer unlimited plain boiled rice, tandoori chicken and aubergine (eggplant) curry. There was a nondescript soup as starter, lassi as well, papadums included, a pinkish salad - beetroot? (unappetising), some sort of dessert (not tried). But at a price of CHF... More
