“Great Indian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

If you are looking for a good Indian meal in Switzerland, this the place to go. For a South Indian restaurant, it offers very good north Indian food also. It is a welcome change from the mundane Mcdonalds of Switzerland, and is also easy on the wallet. Try the uttapam and the dosa, those are the specialty dishes. All in all, I think that this one of the best Indian restaurants in Switzerland.

“Good Indian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Always in search of an Indian Meal like i'd get in England this is a really great meal! The service is a bit lacking but they are quick enough and polite! I would certainly recommend this restaurant is you are a fan of good authentic Indian food!

“Authenticate Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

If you're looking for a authenticate Indian food, then this is a place to go. After reviewing couple of restaurants on the internet we decided to give it a try.Initially, we felt this is a little expensive place but isn't overall Europe is an expensive place to eat out. The server was quick and very responsive. Everything we ordered was delicious and spicy enough to influence our taste buds,

“This place is kinda OK. Jet Privilege 150279662”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

Serves Indian food, pretty bland as expected and if you are an Indian traveling to Switzerland, you'll find the place horribly expensive for the kind of quality provided. We ate the biryani and it was just ok.

If you are an Indian, I'd recommend you try some other place!

“Food is good...but very very expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The restaurant is near the Dying Lion Monument....

We were 2 of us and are Indians and we were dying to have some quality Indian food after 6 days of trying local Swiss food....the brochure from the Lucerne Tourist Information mentioned a few Indian Restaurants but Kanchi about 2 times....we decided to give it a try..

The restaurant interiors are dark...

We ordered a beer, Pakoras , one more starter, a vegetable and dal and some naans....We decided not to order Rice upfront...but when the waiter brought food to the table....he got a portion of Rice too...and he said its complimentary...at first I thought "nice" , but then I thought...
what if I had ordered biryani or something...then he would have given me a biryani too and the free rice too...so he should have told us earlier if he was going to serve us rice...

I saw that exactly happen at another table...a couple ordered biryani and they got 2 portions now..one biryani and one complimentary...it was obvious nobody would be able to finish so much....now I wonder why they were giving free rice...

We are vegetarians and generally have seen non-veg food costing much more then veg food...

but on seeing the bill...i definitely felt it was more expensive then anywhere....it is not 5 star and I have stayed in expensive cities...infact I stay in Singapore and the most expensive Indian meal I have had is about 70-80 singapore dollars.

We were charged 80 Francs for the meal...while the taste of the food was good...the high price left a slightly bitter taste in my mouth....
