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...

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
