Just walking by a noticed this place, small but clean and neat. A meat, fish and vegetarian option for lunch and a small dinner menu that seemed to have enough of my Indian favorites. One waiter appears to have chosen the wrong career path, but mine was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

I had a delightful experience at this wonderful Indian restaurant very close to Lausanne Gare. Wonderful choice on the menu. Great, warm and hospitable staff. The place is small and cosy and would recommend booking a table in advance. I happen to walk in and the staff was very accommodative though. Try the Veg Thali, not typical Indian taste pallet,...

I went twice for lunch together with a group of friends who highly recommended the place. I was not particularly impressed, the attention is not that good, not that people are unfriendly, they are not, but one has to wait quite sometime to be attended. The daily menus, 3 to choose from, are good, but neither fabulous nor spicy enough.... More

We found this restaurant through trip advisor and were very looking forward to it uring our visit to Lausanne. It was raining heavily and as soon as we entered the restaurant, the waiter told us that the hotel is full and asked us to leave. We looked around and there were only 2-3 tables occupied and even if the rest... More

I have been there for an unplanned lunch, but I have to say that the food surprized me actually: especially the bread and the "steak de calamar".

We tried out quite every Indian restaurant in Lausanne and surroundings and this one is definitively one of our favorites. Excellent food in just the right quantity, nice and cosy atmosphere. For Lausanne I'd also say that the prices are ok. Service is just fine too, not too much on your back but nevertheless as swift as possible.

Indian cooking with genuine spices. May take some time, may cost a bit more, but the food was wonderful and the owner friendly and justifiably proud of his restaurant

Really amazing cooking, spicy but not too hot, delicate and refined cuisine. Veggie, fish or meat , it's all a treat ! The owner -cook is welcoming and passionate about his cuisine. And it is only 5' away from the train station. Decorated with a lot of taste . It really is the best Indian cuisine between Geneva and Lausanne... More

We find the place wonderful, the food excellent, but paying 17CHF for a small bowl of Daal (lentil) is just so expensive, a little more food and I would have left happy tonight...
