Good food and big portions. Staff was fast, but not particularly friendly. Unfortunately I received the wrong amount of change, which I only noticed later (3CHF missing).

Very good and affordable curry. It is a very simple and stress free space, the food is good and the crowd and staff are very chilled.

Exceptional food! While the restaurant is small and the service is meant to be quick and easy going, the food is outstanding!

We visited here as many places were closed (Sunday evening) and those that were open were ridiculously expensive. It also helped that it was just down from our accommodation. The place is small but we were taking out anyway. It was expensive by our standards back home, but cheap compared to what else is available in Zurich. As others have... More

Food is ok but service is appalling. We (3 person) went around 330pm wanting to have something light before having actual dinner after that. Wanted to order 2 items but was informed by them that nothing is available except X rice until 4pm. We proceeded to order X rice and some side dishes. When the rice was served, no cutlery... More

I could not have my dinner since the guy was not prepared to accept payment by means of a credit card and i was not carrying enough francs on me for the family. I found the place to be pretty average and probably that is what to expect from a place when it is termed cheap.

I had a pretty good Masala Dosa.

I would definitely go again. Reasonable selection of cold beer. When possible, sit outside.
