Very interesting menu, great choice for vegetarians and stunning food. I had the Moroccan butternut squash and it was amazing. Fabulous gin and tonics too and Sparky was a wonderful host, very friendly, welcoming and made us feel like VIPs - what more could you...ask?!More

We’ve been here because the other restaurant was fully booked. We didn’t regret it. Very friendly staff and the food is great, too! Reasonable prices. I would come back here anytime.

Sparky's is a great place. The menu is diverse, the food is really good, the chef and the hosts are super good and the ambience is lively. Relatively, good value for money too. This is, not an Indian restaurant. I would rather call it a...Fusion food restaurant that is heavily inspired by Asian and Indian cuisine. There is a good number of options for vegetarians and vegans. We ordered a number of starters and found them pretty good. I would warn you here, do not go looking for the typical Indian cooking and taste, as this would cause heartburn. Do try the Pineapple chutney (absolutely awesome, I asked for a second helping and the recipe too) and the Mango Chutney (mind-blowing, the chef was generous to offer it to most people complimentary ) The Chef Sparky (i guess his real name is Mark if I recall correctly) has been around with this place for 13 years) is a great host and one can strike a really interesting conversation with him. Great place, will be back soon.More

We visited Zermatt last week for just 2 days and had prepared a list of possible restaurants to enjoy based on recent Trip Advisor reviews. After a long day of hiking, we were looking for a place that was off the beaten path, was not...too fancy and had a menu that appealed to both of us. Sparky's fit the bill! It has been described as an Indian restaurant, but the menu is diverse. My husband loved his Moroccan butternut squash with chicken and I loved my chicken fajitas. Prices were reasonable, the food was delish, but perhaps the thing that I will remember most is the chef/owner from England who made a point of welcoming us, offering full menu flexibility and ensuring that our experience was a delightful one. It was indeed. Sparky's feels like a bit of a hidden treasure. It is not in the main shop/restaurant area but was just a 5 minute walk from our hotel (Tradition Julen). We highly recommend it!More

Big kudos for preparing delicious Thai curry after the kitchen has been already closed! Very tasty and delivered quickly. We also tried Lamb Rogan Josh Curry - this is a MUST, super yummy, especially with mango chutney.

We had the specialty Moroccan butternut squash dinner with couscous. Superb!!! Sparky, the owner, greeted us and told us about his early life in Jersey and his many years in Switzerland. Such a warm and welcoming guy! We had traveled from Zug just for one...night. Great dining experience in Zermatt.More

My wife and I just spent the evening at Sparky's And had a fabulous meal and fellowship with the owner and staff. The Lamb Curry and Prawn Madras Curry were exceptional (make sorry and get the mango chutney as it is really special) as were...the apple fritters for desert. In addition to great food and music, we were treated like honored guest by all. Its no wonder Sparky’s gets such great reviews. He and his staff love what they do and make everyone who walks in feel special.More

Sparky’s is predominantly an Indian restaurant with a small menu. Our son doesn’t normally like Indian food but tried the chicken madras then talked about it all week so we had to return so he could have it one more time. He says he still...won’t have Indian food at home as he’s now had the best, I must say I agree with him. On the first visit I had the special spicy vegetable tagine very tasty, the second time prawn madras and they were one of the tastiest prawns I’ve ever had in a lovely not overly spicy curry sauce. For Zermatt the prices are very reasonable and anywhere else in the world given the quality. Highly recommend.More

Nice cozy pub. We got a few drinks here during one of the games. Service was great and drinks are relatively affordable compared to other places in the area.

A friend of ours recommended Sparky's because we love Indian food. This was Indian food, but even more delicious and hearty, and somehow tasted healthier, probably because everything was fresh! The service was fast and lovely, and the atmosphere was perfect.

We were surprised by the good quality of the Indian food. Made by an British chef in Switzerland. Loved the friendly staff and the relaxed atmosphere. Will for sure come again!

Sparky’s stands out in Zermatt for two reasons: great food at a reasonable price. Actually, there is a third reason: really nice people. Go there. You will enjoy.
