Delicious Indian food

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.

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

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

We visited the restaurant hoping to enjoy Indian food.but to our surprise got a printed page with order rules saying every person needs to order an item from the menu even with kids.so no sharing.order extra even if you did not want so many items.first time ever in Europe we faced a condition along with the main menu. So check... More

Nicely decorated restaurant in the heart of Zurich. Excellent Indian Cuisine good staff. Restaurant management is very much money minded. Quantity is very less. They even charge Tap water(3.5 Euros for 0.5 Ltrs). nowhere tap water is charged in Switzerland. in fact, just after entering they hand over a list of conditions about orders. also one condition says "at least...

Restaurant VULKAN is well known for its Indian cuisine and is popular among locals and visitors..It is located at a very convenient address in Zurich.A decently decorated separate enclosure was provided for our group to have meals.However the place and the seating arrangement turned out to be quite inadequate and cramped up.The preparations served to us were presented well, freshly...

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
