Yummy Indian Food!

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 ;)

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.

I have been several times to Nandanam, never been disappointed. The food is incredibly tasty, but not too hot for those who would be afraid of Indian spices. I recommend the calamari as a starter. They also prepare marvelous fish with Kerala recipes. Indian beer is served but they also propose a nice selection of Swiss wine. The bistrot atmosphere... More

Delicious food for a cosy place, well located in the heart of Lausanne, easily reachable by train. Awesome cuisine and very nice atmosphere in this little restaurant about to increase in size. Nice choice of dishes with typical south indian cooking. A must for every indian food lover. Book before as it is almost always fully booked!!"

I went there many times and I was never disappointed. The food is nice, the tastes are really like in South India, though it is less spicy than over there. The staff was always very friendly, and when I went with a group of friends for a birthday dinner, we were offered a piece of chocolate cake with candles and... More

Last month I booked for a romantic saturday dinner with my boyfriend in this indian restaurant and, even it was expensive, it was worthy! I will come back for sure. The problem is that you have to decide in advance to reserve it, not let it for random!

Contrarily to most of indian restaurants which propose only meals from north India, Nandanam serves specialities from south India. The chicken tandoori is delicious, and the take away portions are quite generous.
