we ordered chicken biryani. Since we are Indian, so we can tell that the chicken biryani was not at all fresh. The staff behaviour was unprofessional. Need to improve how to strike a conversation with customer without self glorification.

Tasty, Authentic, courteous staff, fast service, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, very close to Interlaken Oost train station...mild hot food so everyone can enjoy though typically I would prefer more chili...I would recommend it if you are looking for Indian food...couldn't pay by card but that is a small glitch

Food is really authentic and service also is of top notch. Loved the aloo paranthas and chicken biryani. Most of the times we ate outside but once because of rain we sat inside the restaurant, and there were some small flies inside. May be rain could have caused it, but besides this everything was awesome.

It was supposedly a pakistani restaurant, but the food lacked the desi spice. We had biryani & chicken gravy. Both lacked taste & quantity was very less too. We enjoyed the shawarmas more, which is 15 meter from this shop :)

Very oily food, terrible service and staff is rude. They served us a dish we didn't order, but since we took a bite out of it to see what it was, they said they wont do anything about it and we should order additional dishes. They overcharged us for the naans approx 10chf per naan, which they didn't explain why!!

we ordered vegetarian food as my wife is vegetarian but she was uncomfortable with the smell of non-veg coming from inside the kitchen. The service was very slow and the behaviour of the staff did not seem very professional. They were talking among themselves while we waiting for our order. The food quality was ok. However overall experience was not... More

I came by from a distant place with my whole family expecting a good quality and at least average tasting food. To my surprise the food quality and taste was worst than what I have ever had in any country of Paki/Indian cuisine. There was no manager or the owner to listen to our complaints and the place was run... More

In Switzerland one don't expect authentic Indian/Pakistani food. However the food is very average and quantity is very less as compared to other Indopak restaurants in Swiss. We had much better Indian food in other restaurants in Luzern and Bern. In my opinion its better to avoid this place unless you are very desperate and are left with no choice.
