Indian Oasis in Geneva

Tried this restaurant during our stay in Geneva. An Indian gentleman roaming around the Geneva Lake recommended this place for Indian food. The restaurant was run by few Indian employees.

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in Geneva. A couple of beers in the Lord Jim then family curry in The Spice of India which is opposite. The food is good, service excellent and very child friendly. Looking forward to going again.

Ok Indian but expensive for the quality of the dishes but then again once you experience Kiran, it is difficult not to be harsh when you go to a regular Indian restaurant as the gap in quality is way bigger than the gap in price. Overall an ok meal but probably will not return for seconds.

I ordered among other things channa masalla. Now being Asian and a good cook I know what channa should taste like. I was hugely disappointed, it was salty the channa were hard and I let the waiter know. He took it away, five minutes or more later he returned the same channa that clearly had water added to it to... More

The food is really delicious and I must say it is authentic Indian foods. The restaurant is clean, designed with Indian typical style. It is the must-to-go place you should visit if you come to the International - Multi cultural City like Geneva!
