“Awful!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Got some take away breads and they were an unrecognizable abomination with no taste. Don't think this is really an authentic Indian restaurant.

“Insufficiently Indian”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I always get excited when a new Indian restaurant opens in Lausanne. New Delhi had a "groupon" offer and we gave it a try. The restaurant itself is nothing to speak of, just a place that serves food near the train station. This is not a problem for me, as my priority in seeking Indian food is more focused on flavors than on decor. The immediate heads up when we entered was that the place did not smell like Indian food; I mean, when you are cooking great Indian food it is hard to keep the aromas trapped in the kitchen. We were promptly and courteously seated and presented with the menu. They have steaks, pasta, cheese dishes and Indian food.

The Indian starters are presented as a combo plate for 2 and they were actually pretty good. Would have been better if accompanied by traditional Indian sauces instead of what resembled a tiny ramekin slightly minty salad sauce. Main dishes were OK too; lentils and spinach were fine, and the Lamb Vindaloo was at least tender (if not hot and spicy). Both were accompanied by a nice rice pilaf and fresh veggies.

Overall, I suspect they are trying to appeal to a very broad spectrum of tastes and aiming for the middle. Unfortunately, when it comes to Indian cuisine, I'm personally out on one of the spicier fringes. Oh well.
