Description: Located close to the famous Gutsch castle and Utoring apartments, Restaurant GourmIndia Luzern provides an authentic Indian experience. Using a blend of traditional Indian spices, our chefs from India create true Village style Indian cuisine. Our hearty portions and friendly service mean everyone eats like a King. We specialize in classic regional dishes such as Goan prawn curry and Tandoori chicken served on a sizzling platter. These are accompanied by aromatic basmati rice or freshly prepared Naan bread baked in a traditional Indian tandoor (clay oven). Sip on a refreshing mango lassi to cool down while enjoying the blend of Indian spices The Kings menu is highly recommended for those who wish to try a variety of our favourite dishes and enjoy it to your heart's content. Book in advance for Kings menu and enjoy a complimentary hot masala Chai. We look forward in giving you a taste of Authentic Indian food.

“Great pick for Indian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a great pick if you want to have great tasting Indian food. Their menu has a lot to offer but most of the things I don't know. So we took the King's Menu: first some starters on a plate and afterwards 5 different dishes (lam, chicken, fish, some veggi and some cheese with spinach) accompanied by rice and nam. Just great. I guess you can order it with different levels of spiciness.
Hint: you can book this online as well and you get a small discount + a glass of prosecco! From looking around, this was the most popular thing to order.
Another popular thing was the mixed tandori plate; which comes from sizzling hot from the kitchen!
After we were done with the main course, we had about half of it left. The nice waiter asked us if we want to take the rest home. Something not so ordinary in Switzerland. We had enough for Indian lunch the day after. And one other great service: they also offer you tab-water... not common in Switzerland (even though the water is great here).
The waiters are also very kind in general. The manager comes to your table and ask how everything is. Like it should be!

Then the negatives:
the places is a bit outdated. It looks very 70s. They tried to make it look a bit Indian, but haven't succeeded yet. I understand it will be an expensive undertaking, but the place really could do with an upgrade. All chairs and tables have to go for example!
And the location: yes it is a bit towards the rough area's in Luzern; but with a bus from the main station you are there in 5 minutes and it stop in front of the door.

I will certainly return; the food is just great!

“Our favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Service is very friendly and attentive, the decor is modern and clean. Most importantly just as the name of this restaurant says it, the food is excellent that you want to come back for. I love Indian food and this comes from a well traveled foodie

“Great place to have good and authentic Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

I remember Gourm India as the place which reflects India in every sense right from the entrance to the ambience inside to the food and not to forget Paaji...the owner. Though on the costlier side the warm welcome and the personalised service that you get compensate for it. Karan the manager over there was also too good and a real friendly person.
The food there has the taste of India ..the only point where it lags is the spice. Food is less spicy to suit the needs of the Swiss people....but its OK as getting food of this quality and as close to the Indian taste is very rare.
I wish Paaji best luck....chakh de phatte .... PAAJI.

“Best Indian Restaurant In Luzern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We chose to this restaurant as the Tripadvisor reviews were good. It was a really fantastic restaurant in all aspects. The ambiance is welcoming, modern with Asian flair and very clean. The service was perfect and fast. The food was excellent, delicious and well presented- We went with two small children and it was fine, they were both made welcome and there was room for them to move around. There is underground parking nearby so it was easy to get there. We were really impressed and will be going again. The prices are also very reasonable with a large menu selection to chose from.
