We visited Laxmi yesterday with my partner. The location was lovely, as it was amidst the old Lausanne buildings at the centre of the bourg. Once inside the restaurant, we were welcomed by the beautiful aromas of curry, cardamon, chilli pepper, cumin and lot's more. The restaurant was divided into two ares. We were sat in a cosy spot facing a window. The waiters spoke excellent English, which was a great surprise for Lausanne. The menu had a wide selection of entrees and main dishes. We decided to try the Gambas géantes and the Indian cheese balls (Paneer Pakora). The Gambas (prawns) were out of this world. They were grilled to perfection. The cheese balls were indifferent, they lacked taste, but we were happy to just try them out. For our main dishes we ordered Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Korma with two different types of rice - a saffran-flavoured one and a garlic-flavoured one and a cheese and green pepper naan bread. We accompanied our meal with a bottle of Bordeaux rosé wine. Just a quick note here: Our mains took 1 hour to arrive at our table, but when they did arrive, the flavours over-compensated the wait and our slight irritation. The waiter also apologised and treated us to a limoncello at the end of our meal. For dessert, we tried the "GulabJamun" which includes two pieces of milk fried dumplings in rose-water syrup. They went down really well with our espressos and added some fine flavours to the overall Indian experience. Note: If you don't like spicy food, just make sure you tell them and they will cater to your taste buds. I highly recommend this restaurant. One suggestion that I would like to tell the owners is to add some nice indian music in the background. Bon Apetit!!
