Have been travelling for long in Europe. Wanted to get some Indian food . Visited this Indian restaurant near to Railways station in Zurich.. Horrifying hospitality. The menu came followed by a single typed out page of what you can do and what you can not in the restaurant. For example , as many adults that many main course you... More

This restaurant is one of the worst Indian meals I have ever had, and I am a die-hard Indian cuisine lover who cooks it a lot at home also. Portions are tiny for the price you pay, and the curries are bland and not flavoursome... I had a lamb Rogan Josh, the mutton was very fatty and chewy, and it... More

In close proximity to the train station you find this restaurant which is frequented by Indians. We really like it because of the friendly service and excellent food. We had the lamb dish and a vegetable biryani. The meat dish was tasty and good spiced (We requested to spice it more Indian than european style). The biryani was the nicely... More

We arrived on a Saturday evening at around 8.15 pm and were lucky to get the last table. Good and friendly service. We had to wait around 30 minutes for the food which was ok (the restaurant was full). We ordered Murgh Tikka Masala, Gosht Lababdar and Hyderabadi Biryani, Garlic Naan and Purina Parantha, all very delicious.

Ready to wait 90 minutes to get your chicken whatever-spice? Then this is the right place. Beside the wait there are several other things that can annoy the average Swiss person: ask for Hahnenwasser (tap water) and they simulate not to understand bringing their funny 9.- litre bottled water. The starters are quite expensive too and not very tasty. The... More

This is a great place to get an excellent Indian dinner when you are in Zurich. The location is convenient in the sense that it is within walking distance of the train station. The restaurant exterior was typically European and blended with the neighborhood. The interior was suitably tasteful with a muted, warm décor that provided a relaxing atmosphere. The... More

When living in Zurich we tried different indian restaurants, but Vulkan was the only one we visited more than once (surely about 8 times). Vulkan is (or maybe was) also the only one with an original tandoor oven in Zurich. The atmosphere is cozy and the toilets are clean =). The service was always great, although it might be confusing... More
