Cozy atmosphere excellent food. My daughter had the nachos which may seem like an odd item to order in Switzerland but they were amazing and generous. I had the thai curry chicken which was seriously the best curry I've ever had and I am from a foodie town in Portland OR USA. Warm friendly service, fun to chat with locals... More

Wonderful food and service with very warm staff. They managed to serve us some very nice Indian dishes as well. Shall surely visit again when next in Zermatt.

Husband loved the pork ribs and I enjoyed a vegetarian curry. Lovely staff and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Chocolate brownie for dessert was definitely my highlight.

This was an interesting find. We enjoyed the Indian Curries which were tasty and well presented. We were welcomed and well looked after throughout the meal. If you are looking for a well priced restaurant a few streets away from the crowds, this is it

We have been to Sparky's every summer for the past five years and we return for a reason ... This time we had the Thai green chicken curry and Madras chicken curry ... both were amazing. Seriously, the green chicken curry is one of my favorite dishes anywhere! Sparky is always quick with a helpful tip on good hiking spots... More

If you have enough of rösti and wienerschnitzle and similar you should try this place. Sits are limited, and you wouldn't expect to taste quite good Asian food interpreted in an alpine way. Not on a budget.

This place definitely has a bit of a younger vibe... Good Indian food as we were looking for something other than Swiss food. Prices were average for Zermatt which are still pretty high. I had soup, two beers, and we had an entree each for 81 CHF. Was full when we left. Overall would recommend as it is cozy and... More

After arriving in Zermatt mid afternoon following a big lunch, my wife, son and I later discovered Sparky's. We had a round of drinks and some excellent small plates - hummus, spring rolls, nachos and a salad - in the friendliest of atmospheres. The owner and waitress were great, suggesting things to do and places to eat during our stay.... More

We were staying close to Sparky's and decided to pop in one night for a look at the desserts. We split a warm apple pie with ice cream and it was sooooo yummy...but better than that was the people in general at Sparky's. So nice and friendly. We wish we would have found you sooner!!!
