If you are looking for typical indian food, you will be disapointed, but if you want something different, something that you are not used to eat of find in other restaurant, then, you will be pleased.

You should definitely try their calamari starter and for the main dish, their beef is also delicious. It is the third time that I came and I am always please.

I would suggest that they change their menu from time to time-

Nandanam comes with a punch to your palette and the flavours just knock you off.

Every single time we go there its a delight. Food well crafted, prepared fresh and the way its presented its highly recommended. Total total value for money.

Strongly recommended! Dont miss this one.

We live since 3.5 years in Lausanne and just now discovered Nandanam restaurant! Excellent food, warm reception and cozy déco, definitely a must-go around here.

The restaurant is located on the right side of the road when you are going by bus towards Gare.

You get off at the stop 'Villard' and walk for about a minute and you will see it.


The restaurant is small and cluttered. furniture is arranged tightly and it is always full in the evening.


The food is just great.

Well i don't know about the carnivorous dishes because i am a vegetarian, but the vegetarian thali is absolutely scruptious!!

it comes very fresh and hot and is delicious. you would get a portion of rice, some pickles, some papad, some vegetable curry.

i recommend that you order fresh NAAN (indian bread) and specially garlic naan... they are to die for.


in conclusion, after trying all the indian restaurants here, all are rubbish against this one.. the food is simply fresh and delicious ...

you must go!

Now let me start of by warning you that i've never step foot in India and don't know anything about their cuisine. That being said, i've always enjoyed indian food and was looking for a nice indian restaurant in Lausanne and finally found it.
I've been to Nandanam a couple of time, the last time being last week. The place definitely doesn't look like your typical indian restaurant and the interior design is very cute. The service was done by what seemed to be the owners and they were very nice. I ordered the vegetarian menu and found it delicious. My friend had the fish and loved his dish as well (he keeps telling me he wants to go back).
Now, although i've never been to india, i don't need to know all about their food to see that this restaurant has a fusion feel to it. The dishes don't look 100% authentic but as long as they taste great, i don't mind at all. My friends that know india don't dislike the food there, but they just think it's not authentic at all.
We both truly enjoyed our meals. The service was very fast, the food was great, the staff nice: what more to ask for?
The only downside is the locations. Not really the place where you go out in Lausanne but the restaurant is always packed so it seems that has no impact for them.
