Dear Mr. Dhillon, Florence and the whole Mundial team, Sat Sri Akal,

My wife & I had a fantastic dinner last night (20/07/2011) and it was a pleasure meeting all of you. Mr. Dhillon, your food is outstanding. I particularly enjoyed the Aubergine Masala. It was the second best I have ever tasted in my life. (My mother's is the best of course!) We ordered the Grill Samosa, Surprise Thali and Tandoori Poulet & Crevetten.

Everything was really very very good. It tasted very authentic and home made. This is what makes your food special, it tastes home made and authentic. The portions were also very large, which I loved because I eat a hell of a lot.

The difference between you and other Indian restaurants in Switzerland is that you keep your food authentic. It really tastes Punjabi, just like my mother would make it. In other Indian restaurants in Switzerland, all the dishes have been westernised/swissified and watered down to suit local tastes. While I understand it, I do not agree with it. You must always serve authentic food. Please do not change your cooking. If I wanted chicken stew, I would go to a European restautant, but when I want Chicken Masala, I will come to you. The Chapatis were nice, but I would love Naan the next time I come.

I had also noticed that you offer Swiss regional dishes, Pastas and Thai dishes. I am sure they must be very good as well, but to be honest, I would always eat your Punjabi food.

The service was excellent and Florence, the server, is a lovely, cheerful, efficient and joyful person. We enjoyed chatting to her. We also enjoyed talking to the manager from Sri Lanka, I am sorry I forgot your name. I was impressed that you spoke Hindi and you took care of us very well.

All in all, your restaurant is brilliant, the food homemade and full of flavour, the service delightful and the décor chic. We will be back often.

Best Wishes

p.s. I am a hotelier. I know what good food & service is, and you have it. Keep it Real !
