We visited it after a 6 month break and found standards to have declined sharply. Chapati was completely tasteless. Lamb Madras served with barely a handful of safrani rice was almost non-existent and consisted mainly of very liquid brown gravy of no particular taste and a few lamb meatballs. Service still courteous and efficient and place still packed out on Friday night. At this rate, this will not continue or should not continue. Prices have not gone up but would have preferred to pay slightly more and get an Indian meal worthy of the name. Terrific mark-up on the wine.

Ordered two vegetarian starters and two vegetarian main dishes. All were wonderfully prepared. On the whole, the food was very good and, for Geneva, a very good value. This place is my preferred Indian restaurant in Geneva.

went a few time late 2010 and it was decent then. Im indian and cook at home and eat out often for indian food. I was happy with the service, price and most importantly the food. It's not Regency in London or the Mandarin in Geneva but its decent.

Nice food in an expensive city. Good suggestions from staff, and very nice food. An unexpected find close to the main train station. Attentive staff. This restaurant is apparently quite new so hopefully their standards last.

Having had some really bad curries recently in Germany, Luxembourg and Czech Republic I was reluctant to see what Switzerland had to offer!

Thankfully I did try, it was one of the best curries I've ever had. I was welcomed with a drink, and a poppadom.

Having discussed the menu I went for a Chef Special, Chicken Tikka, cooked to the spice level I wanted (hot). The sauce was fantastic, and the Roti bread delicious.

I was also offered a free drink to finish, but didn't have room.

Menu is also in English.

Highly recommended.
