My father and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night and it was surprisingly really good. I made a booking thinking that better be safe than sorry and I am glad I did. The restaurant was full by 8pm with groups, families and couples. The main course Paneer Masala tasted exactly how my mum makes it at home... More

What a fabulous curry evening! Just like the sort of curry I wold expect at home in Swindon in the numerous curry houses, but even better! Service was authentic and excellent and the food was perfect, spicier than usual for Switzerland! Wonderful food and service! Thanks!

Though I have passed through this restaurant several times, never bothered visit. But this month I went with colleagues for dinner. Really surprised about the quality of food and the service. The person who took the order completely understood our requirements and served accordingly (some of the items we wanted very spicy and some moderate). Taste was excellent. Will certainly... More

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
