I went there for dinner on a Weekend. It's busy, so make sure to make a reservation. Super tasty food, especially the Naan and Chicken Tikka Masala. Highly recommend it!

Good and authentic Indian food. I especially liked Alu paratha there. Enjoyed!!! Price is bit high, as across in Zurich. Expect an average of CHF35 per person and it will be more or less same across Indian restaurants in Zurich. Good ambience and staff also is very courteous.

I was on a family holiday in France and Switzerland and we wanted Indian food. Out of the 5 Indian restaurants that we dined at throughout our tour, this was certainly the best! Good food, good service. Not very expensive either. If you're spoilt for choice (although you won't be because there aren't much options), go for this place without... More

brilliant food in nice interiors!! very good Indian food. We had the chicken curry with rice. We ordered extra rice which they forgot to put in our takeaway but that was an honest mistake. We did come back a second time and the waiter promptly apologized for the mistake and made up for it.

Fancied an Indian meal and was lucky to find this Restaurant opened on Easter Monday. The restaurant was busy and we were very pleased to get a table but we had to wait over an hour for our orders to be tabled. The food was certainly worth the wait and all the feelings of exasperation evaporated. Great food and definitely... More

I went with my boyfriend, and I haven't had such bad Indian food in a long time. To start with, the restaurant was more than half-empty when we arrived, and they gave us a table in the middle of the room, with no privacy, despite about 8 or 9 better tables being available. The service was just too much, at... More

We were two families of 5 people and had gone there for dinner. The service was impeccable and the ambience was nice. They serve really tasty indian cuisine considering that the restaurant is in Europe. Also, they went out of their way to serve us the Indian fired rice with cumin seeds. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't... More
