Pros - beautiful old house, great venue - genuine delicious Indian cuisine - great range of dishes - proximity to train station - across the road! Cons - service was friendly though inexperienced; waitress was a little "odd" in her interaction in that she misunderstood...a few things, both in German and English. Highly recommend and will definitely returnMore

We could watch the sun set over lake Zurich from our table. The food, a variety of onion bhajis , samosas and poppadums as starters were delicious. The main courses, whether prawn, chicken and lamb were beautifully cooked as well as the rice and naan...breads. Everything was served piping hot at the same time. As birthday surprise my husband got a sparkler candle in a big bowl of ice cream- a lovely surprise. We shall be back there soonMore

Had lunch with two ex-colleagues. Buffet was tasty even if not extensive. Not super spicy but just enough to creep up on you. It has to be tough for restaurants in these Covid times, so please make the effort to visit good places like this...if you can.More

While this is not in downtown ZÜRICH, where there is a durth of good Indian restaurants, the food here is outstanding and the service is quite good. It’s an authentic Indian restaurant in a swiss chalet. If you down mind a 25 minute train ride...for downtown ZÜRICH, this is worth the trip.More

I love coming here for discrete business lunches. Lunchtime I‘d recommend the wonderful, very authentic buffet. Take a seat with lake view - reservation recommended to assure perfect seating. Pure authentic service, too - good but rather pragmatic and authentic, not overly friendly or attentive.

I actually come here ca every 3- 4 months for the last few years. The Indian food on offer is really quite good and can keep up with good Indian Restaurants in London. The menu is sizeable with many known favourites (Tikka Masala, Rogan Josht,...Vindaloo, Dhal, Butter Chicken among others) and a number of lesser known dishes plus Chef’s selection - a lot to choose from. The food is really nice, no complaint here. What I noted the last few times though is that the service is a bit hot and miss, one night the waiter did rarely come back after serving the mains and really had to be flagged down to get more drinks, on another occasion we had to wait 45 mins plus for the food despite the dining room only being half full, that is one point for improvement. I seem to pay always ca 50 CHF per person for a starter, main with rice and 2 beers. The view, when sitting by the lakeside windows is great, and the restaurant is easy to reach by car and by train - right by the Horgen Oberndorf train station.More

Delicious, authentic north India food. Helpful, very kind service. Beautiful views over the lake (make sure to reserve a table at the gallery). Very reasonable price. A must go.

Probably one of better authentic Indian foods around Zurich lake. Although the menu has well above 100 options, the choice is relatively underwhelming. I am not sure if all the dishes are freshly prepared. But that is what makes Indian cuisine: fried or cooked and...covered with plethora of spices so at the end everything tastes the same. Naan was good.More

The reputation of this restaurant is well-founded. The dishes were authentic, very tasty, and plentiful. The staff is also very nice. The patio has a wonderful view, and the Bollywood records on the wall are a nice touch. Definitely worth a visit
