Real Indian food for Anglo Saxons who like their curries like at home. The German palate thinks that Cheese & Onion crisps are too spicy and so many Indian restaurants serve mild food. However, this one gives you a choice across the full spectrum. They...More

The first thing you are given is not the menu, but a single poppadom (for 4 people!) which issupposedly spicey in a "Germanic" way and thus the "lowest" strength of "spicyness". Total baloney. This goes on with "Germanc plus", "Indo-germanic light", ending with "Indian plus"....More
