We can confirm they have Indian food on their menues. But that's all. We invited our Indian business colleagues to Kerala Restaurant and were relying on very good reviews. We have no explanation how these ratings can be explained. Food was clearly below average, very simple and basic. Also their is absolutely no rational for the set price level. Unfortunately... More

We read the reviews and had hight expecations. However the experience was rather disappointing and a rather average indian restaurant. The dishes lacked somewhat the authentic and special South Indian kick we expected in a restaurant with this name. Seems overrated to us.

An authentic Indian restaurant, carefully supervised by the owner. While the dishes are somewhat expensive relative to the average Indian restaurant the difference is well worthwhile. Our youngest (9) is no fan of spicy food, and what he had ordered was spicier than he first imagined. The owner saw this, suggested a milder alternative and then brought it. Our son... More

the Kerala restaurant. This place was well known to me since I grew up in the neighbourhood. First off, the staff was friendly, polite and attentive. Since I'm no expert in Indian food all there is to say is, that it was spicy, had a lot of flavour and was plenty for me. Will deffinetly go back there.

Initially we were very excited as this restaurant is close to where we live and we love Indian food. However, I ordered a lamb curry with spinach, which was puréed and served as a bowl of green liquid, and unfortunately so much salt and pepper had been used that I could only eat a small portion and could still taste...

By far the best food available in Zurich. Slightly expensive but till you pay for the cheque you would have tasted a great food.

The food at this restaurant is delicious: we had a lamb curry and a dal tadka, and both were cooked to perfection, very tasty and with a good heat to them. The price was typical for an dinner out in Zurich - with a rice (big enough to share) and a garlic naan plus one beer and one glass of... More

kerala is my favourite restaurant in zurich for tasty Indian food. The food here is excellent especially dishes like Vada curry and Bhindi Masala. However the service is quite grumpy and sometimes rude. Inspite of this, the restaurant is always crowded only due to the great food.
