We were very satiesfied with the dishes and the size of the dishes are quite right. My colleague did the reservation but it has gone lost but they managed to get us... More

The restaurant is in a beautiful old traditional Swiss house, hence the name "Chalet". Somehow old Swiss tradition/architecture/furniture and India-based decorations bite each other (but some might say "interesting"). The staff is friendly, fast but not very accurate (messed up reservations, brought wrong drinks and one of the dishes). The food is quite good and attempts to be authentic (except... More

Having tried several indian restaurants in Zurich over the last few years we think Chalet India is head and shoulders above the rest for choice, quality, service and environment. A good menu and, considering we are in Switzerland, pretty good value. The menu is good, the side dishes are excellent and the portions copious !

A variety of quality meat, fish, yogurt sauces and vege dishes make for a great lunch time buffet. And the free naan bread rounds off a great meal. The building is gorgeous and the Swiss interior makes for a fun contrast of cultures. One thing I could use is more spice!

We visit this Restaurant on a more or less regular basis (at least every two months) and we have never been disappointed. The food is always nice and rich and the staff is very friendly. The restaurant is offering a lot of vegetarian meals, which is important for us.

Had dinner there with my former colleague. Expected more spicy food. Interior is decent, tables bit close together.

The food is really nice being cooked by Indian people so they know what they are doing, the bread (naan) i guess is really nice. The lamb plates are really nice and juicy, the Tandoori masala plates are nice with a smooth spicy touch. The Service is really slow and clumsy. On Sundays they have the open buffet option, its...

Good selection of Indian food ( hard to think of a place which such a variety in the Zurich area) always fresh and properly prepared. Good selection of drinks and very nice bar. Only issue waiting time. Had to wait one full hour - after order - to get my meal served. Happened during peak hour of Tuesday night and... More

I love Indian food and Chalet India is always a must when I'm in the area. Run by Indian people, really know what they are doing. Food wise is great, the only downside is that they are a bit slow. I tend to order when I book to speed in a little the service. Highly recommend it
