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

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...
