Environment - ok, food very tasty, staff friendly so next time in Zurich and looking for indian dish try this restaurant and you will not be disappointed. It’s a bit pricy though.

The food was a nice surprise - good amount of kick but mainly great flavours. Service was ok for me but the restaurant does get busy so this may vary. No English menu but the staff are very helpful in explaining dishes.

The food was excellent, but a bit pricey, portions relatively small. But service is very good and friendly! We ate the buffalo Curry and the eggplant dish, very tasty and very different from what you get a "normal" Indian restaurants. I loved it!

I am Asian and married into an Indian family so I know good Indian food. This is not it. Food is bland, small portions and expensive. Service is also rude. I felt pretty much unwelcome. I’ll write a good review on a much better Indian...More
