We headed here just before we went to see a show at the nearby Theatre 11. On a Thursday night with no reservations they managed to squeeze us in to a busy restaurant and promised to get us out within 30mins so we could make our show. The Chicken Tikka was so tender and really tasty, the vindaloo was tasty... More

Just back from a first-time visit to Malabar. We ended up there by chance and were not disappointed. Everything we ordered was delicious esp. the Chicken Biryani and Chai Glace dessert. Mmmm... We'll be going back again.

Authentic as they come. Finally a good South-Indian / Kerala restaurant in Zurich. We had the Thali which was really excellent and allowed us to sample different indian flavors. Typical Zurich prices but I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The head server even asked me... More

We made a reservation for a table, the reservation was "lost". But no problem, there have been enough free tables on a Wednesday evening. Wednesday is always buffet. I have to say that I'm not a buffet fan, but others in my group are. The buffet consists of 1 meat (chicken curry), 1 fish (calamares, which have been far under... More
