I had already seated when I read the TripAdvisor reviews, a couple of which were less than complimentary. My oversight and any sense of trepidation was removed on delivery of my meal, which was first rate. I have eaten Indian food every week for the past 40 years and have travelled extensively across India and this place was great. Admittedly,... More

It was like back in India. Ethnic interiors done beautifully. Food was great and I could find everything in Menu which is rare in Indian restaurants. And being north Indian I cherished the same taste as of North Indian food. Must Visit. It is run by Punjabi people.

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.
