The food was good (not exceptional) but it was a good food. The waiter we had was an extra but I’ve never seen such a kind guy. Really me and my girlfriend had a smile on our face all the way back to our house...because of his guys who was so kind. I recommend.More

Small, cosy, Indian restaurant just outside of Basel. Right at the #10 tram so very easy to reach. The staff were friendly and the menu had diverse options. The starters were fantastic and full of robust flavors, hot but just the right amount. Unfortunately the...mains were a bit of a let down due to the lesser punch of flavor. Regardless, the evening was nice and the overall experience was good.More

Super flavorful vegetarian Indian food in Basel (lots of meat options too). Amazing service as well. I believe the veggie food has ghee (clarified butter) in it, and maybe cream sometimes, so if you have a dairy allergy it’s best to call in advance as...I’m not sure if the food can be made vegan. But we have eaten here 3 times and each time the vegetarian food tastes amazing!!More

Eaten here twice now. We were introduced by friends and went back together two weeks later. Samosa was a little empty albeit still tasty but extremely good popadoms, I have to say. Lamb was nice but if I am completely honest the chicken tikka masala...had too much sauce with it. Nevertheless, it will not put us off and we will go back and try another dish. The best garlic naan we have had for a while and all washed down with a nice glass of Merlot. What we liked was the service, hot plates and fair price!More

Since their move to Binningen the restaurant is a short tram ride from us and we decided to give it a try. The location has previously been a middle eastern restaurant, a very short lived cous cous parlor and now an Indian establishment. We chose...to try a lunch menu with meat. The meal started with a small bowl of dal soup (lentils in this case) served with fresh, warm naan. Soup was very good and the naan was very fresh. Our mains were the lamb vindaloo. You can pick your own level of spiciness. I chose hot and my partner picked medium. The medium was just right for her and mine could have been a touch higher on the capsaicin scale with some fresh chopped chilis. The vindaloo was served with rice and a crisp papadam. Portion was on the small side but when you consider that it cost only 19 CHF and this is Switzerland, it was well worth the price. The main menu card has everything a you'd expect in this area. Service was excellent and very friendly. The restaurant is easily accessible via the no. 10 tram. Would certainly recommend this establishment.More

We have already been to this restaurant in Kleinhüning, but we wanted to try it at the new location in Binningen. As always, very warm welcome, the food is very tasty, and there is a large variety of dishes (also vegetarian and not spicy for...European people). The decoration in the new restaurant is very nice and the atmosphere is cosy. The restaurant is smaller, so it is preferable to book it in advance. Parking facility is also available next to the restaurant. Don't hesitate to go there if you would like to try a different kind a food in Basel :)More

Having visited every Indian restaurant in Basel, I can say that Indian Summer in my opinion is the best place for authentic Indian cuisine in town. While the establishment serves all the „classic“ dishes, I recommend every guest to try their curries that one cannot...find in every other Indian place. All the dishes that I have had this far were very tasty and authentic. The owner of Indian Summer furthermore is a lovely host who makes every guest feel welcome and special I already look forward to the next time I get to eat delicious food at the Indian SummerMore
