Wonderful food, divers set of menus, friendly staff – i would say one of the best indian restaurants around zurich

Noch nie zuvor war ich hier, fand dank einer Einladung den Weg hier her. Wir hatten 5 verschiedene Gerichte, alles war harmonisch abgeschmeckt und wo scharf drauf steht ist auch scharf drin. Von den Vorspeisen war ich einzig von den knusprigen Zwiebeln nicht so recht begeistert, ist halt Geschmackssache. Sehr positiv zu erwähnen ist beim Dessert das Eis. Angeblich 100% natürliche Zutaten und zumindest beim Ananassorbet welches ich hatte glaube ich daran, war sehr lecker.
