Best Indian curry I've ever had.

Great atmosphere and host. We enjoyed the food so much, we went back and made sure we were hungry so we could have dessert - worth it, see pictures. We dropped in but probably worth a call in case as it's not a huge place.

Very good food, very friendly atmosphere. Since we ate dinner here twice during our visit, we know it is consistent.

The host is such a friendly gent and made genuinely friendly conversation with all parties in the restaurant. I had the homemade hummus and a glass of local red wine, both of which were fantastic. What a great light dinner.

We have visited Zermatt over twenty times with our two boys (now aged 15 and 13) and Sparky's is a family favourite. The food is excellent with a good selection of beautifully prepared dishes at a sensible price. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the welcome from Sparky and his staff is always a good one! We particularly enjoy... More

First, the basics;, the food is excellent and great value by Zermatt standards. The menu has a spicy theme to it, contrasting with the cow/frying pan bias of much Zermatt food. Just make sure to leave room for the chocolate brownie dessert. But where Sparky's really stands out is the welcoming atmosphere. It's a real mixing pot. On any given... More

As of all touristy and popular places, the prices for a decent restaurant in Zermatt can't be inexpensive. You can only hope with the price paid, at least you will receive good service and good food. This was exactly our experience at Sparky's. In a party of 4, we ordered the Nachos as appetizer, 3 mains (we had the Teriyaki... More

Having had a poor start to our eating out in Zermatt, having read the reviews on Tripadvisor decided to give Sparkys a try. The food was ideal for my wife and I and the service from Sparky was pleasant. The price was reasonable by Zermatt standards but I left having eaten a meal that I enjoyed and was filling. The...

We visited recently after reading reviews and wanting to try some Indian food. Booking was made and ran into the owner on our way in (he was delivering a meal across the road). Made us feel very welcome and took orders promptly. We went for the Chicken Madras and Lamb Roganjosh. Both dishes tasted fine but were not like the... More

I have recently returned from a short break in Zermatt. Sparky's opened for the summer season on our first day and we ate there twice. The curries and chocolate brownies are as good as ever and Sparky is a great host, always willing to find time to talk to new visitors. He caters for all ages and children are welcome.
