We needed to eat rather quickly before going to the cinema. This was one option we visited. It is a bit of an Indian that tries to be more special by bringing the meat on kind of a sword. This seems to cost 3 euro per meal more while the cooking is only adequate and the service mixed. I wouldn't... More

We flew into Berlin, travelled to our hotel and checked in. It was then 11:30pm local time and we checked this restaraunt to see if they could provide us with food, expecting the answer to be no at this time of night. They were so lovely and asked the kitchen if they would stay open for longer. The restaraunt is... More

Loved the interior of the place. Found out quickly the place was nog authentic Indian food. Found their menu confusing. A lot of text, and cucumber raita as a starter? Never saw that before. But it's ok to switch things up. Don't mind that. The main problem was the service. Staff absolutely friendly and very willing to help, but things... More

Ate here midweek while on a business trip to Berlin. The food was absolutely superb, I had Chilli Chicken and it was delicious, good quality perfectly cooked tender meat and a tasty sauce with just the right level of spice. Also had a garlic naan which was lovely. Highly recommend and I'll definitely be back.

Around Savignyplaz, there are many great restaurants. We decided to try Buddha Republic. You enter this nice and colorful room, not to big, not to crowded. Open kitchen, do you see the preparations. Menu in German, but waiters are very helpful. We tried lamb. Tender and very tasteful. You get a starter. Not the biggest winelist, but it works.

A splendid setting and a great host who explained his very special menu. We had Tandoori chicken and lamb. shrimp and cheese appetisers and a wonderful date dessert. We couldn't fault the food, service or ambience - one of our best Indian dinners - comes recommended.

We visited here after a recommendation, I booked it before we made our trip to Berlin. We really enjoyed it, the service was very good and professional. The lady helped us with the menu and we chose dishes we were recommended and really enjoyed it. My personal opinion would be it has more of a Sri Lanka/maldives type feel and... More

Our favourite place in Berlin, best Indian food with modern touch you can get in Germany. Great location near to Savigny Platz.

My husband I visited this place and is it was perfect for a quaint quiet quick dinner. They have a contemporary Indian menu, for lack of a better description, which did well for us.

Decided to try this restaurant, and was very disappointed. My starter which was grilled scampi didn't taste anything special at all. At least not indian. For 8.50 euros i expect the food to be above average, not below. Even the scampi was not cooked to perfection. The main dish was tandoori chicken in curry sauce, and supposed to be a... More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
