For 21.50 Swiss francs the lunch buffet offers a good variety. Naan comes complimentary. The food is tasty. Switzerland is expensive so for that price the food is quite good. Would definitely visit again for dinner and try the la carte menu.

Hmm, what to say? Was it bad or was it good? Something in the middle I would rate. Nothing special, nothing really spicy, not outstanding at all. Rather expensive give the average quality of food.
