Not cheap, but delicious

Indian cooking with genuine spices. May take some time, may cost a bit more, but the food was wonderful and the owner friendly and justifiably proud of his restaurant

We tried out quite every Indian restaurant in Lausanne and surroundings and this one is definitively one of our favorites. Excellent food in just the right quantity, nice and cosy atmosphere. For Lausanne I'd also say that the prices are ok. Service is just fine too, not too much on your back but nevertheless as swift as possible.

Really amazing cooking, spicy but not too hot, delicate and refined cuisine. Veggie, fish or meat , it's all a treat ! The owner -cook is welcoming and passionate about his cuisine. And it is only 5' away from the train station. Decorated with a lot of taste . It really is the best Indian cuisine between Geneva and Lausanne... More

We find the place wonderful, the food excellent, but paying 17CHF for a small bowl of Daal (lentil) is just so expensive, a little more food and I would have left happy tonight...

I can't help but think that we've been had, ripped off! Went there on Saturday afternoon after reading all the great reviews, only to walk out of there 140CHF later for 2 people, feeling that we had been ripped off! The portions are so small, the lentils bathed in a watered down sauce, the Nans soggy, the chicken masala came... More

Went with high expectations, left horribly disappointed... And faced quite an arrogant owner, who tried to play sorry that we found the food bad but failed miserably!

A quite small restaurant but cute on the inside and with really tasty food!! As a tip, the mango & avocado starter & the vegetarian main are delicious. Do check it out.

Two words: Duck Tandoori... to die for!!! A mix between a romantic bistrot and a friend's house with mama's food. Great indian food with a modern twist. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

The food was very delicious and authentic! Try out the chilli calamar as the appetizer and lamb oulathi, they were awesome! Highly recommended restaurant! P.S: It's best to make reservations especially on weekends ;)
