Safe choice for Indian food

We do not go out for Indian often, tried over the year others places but the Vulkan is since years a place that you sure you get the same good quality over and over. Appreciate the fact that it is not too spicy

Pleasant venue, in a reasonable location (we walked from Zurich Hauptbahnhof). Friendly staff, good service, and I thought the prices reasonable. The reason this gets a 3 not a 4 is the food, which was distinctly ordinary. We had lunch An inoffensive but dull salad was included, the chapatti it came with was pretty good. The main was sold as... More

We ordered take-out from Vulkan and were very disappointed with the food. The beef in the curry was so chewy we had to spit it back out. The chicken Korma was like a bad broth and the Naan was far too salty. Prices were way too high as well, really small portions, just generally very disappointing.

We came across this restaurant while walking down the streets of zurich. As we were really hungry thought of having some indian food there. The food we ordered was really good in taste like authentic north indian but I felt the prices are really high. No main course dish is less than 22 fr. And the quantity is also not... More

We didn't know what to expect. We arrived early and took a corner table which was nicely partitioned for privacy. The room is recently decorated, quite welcoming and spacious. The service was prompt. The mixed starters were tasty joy. The lamb main courses - we tried three different lamb dishes and shared - were lovely... meat cooked properly, spiced nicely... More

I can highly recommend the Vulkan to any travellers through Zurich looking for a break from the roesti and fondue. A short walk from the HB station, the Vulkan offers delicious Indian cuisine of a standard matching the better UK Indian restaurants, along with a good selection of beers.

Was not sure what to expect here, but the ambience was rustic and good. The food was spiced up on request to cater to needs and result was really good food. The dessert menu was also very attractive. The place seems popular, so arrive early if in groups or book a table. Visited this place several times and was not... More

So check... More
