“Good food but a bit expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I like this restaurant because it serves halal food for muslims, which is especially helpful when we host our high-level delegations from our country for dinner. The chicken briyani and cheese naan are my favourites. The location is great, you can park behind the restaurant or the carpark at the train station and there are many shops, ATMs nearby. My only complaint is the price. For three of us, it costed almost 300 francs - my parents were shocked since it was their first visit to Geneva, one of the most expensive cities in the world.

“Greasy, disgusting, vile.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012 via mobile

I used the take away last night & it was simply awful. The food took 90 minutes to arrive & when it did each box had about 1 cm of oil floating on top. The lamb was tough as old boot.

I've been living in Geneva since Sept (ex-pat from London) & would classify eating out in general in this town as hopeless. Overpriced & poor quality.

Average Indian cuisine. Nothing special. Large parking in the vicinity.

“Exceptional food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

It's true that the service is slow, but what you get when it comes really is exceptional! We have eaten in Indian restaurants all over the world and this ranks among the top! Choose anything it's all fabulous but their Kadai specialities are mouth-watering.

Add to all this that they deliver and you've got a great restaurant!

“Good food resonable price...but so sloooow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

The restaurant was nice and cozy. we've set down but the waitress took some time to come at our table even tought there were just 3 table occupied in the whole restaurant.
the menu' is quite big and the description are quite nice.
once taken the order it takes 45min to have just the water and first sauses and bread...
the main dish arrived 1h and 30 min from when we order...
at that point we've decided to stop all the other orders.
the food was delicious and a lot. The spicy souces weren't so spicy but hot enought.
the restaurant is good and prices are reasonable for being in the middle of the city, the only bad point is the slowness...
