There was a very odd coconut oil taste in the food... More

The menu included an appetizer plate (2 vegetarians and 1 non vegetarian entrees), 3 different curries (we had beef, fish and vegetarian), rice, naan, poppadoms and a dessert plate . Everything was delicious! The meat was... More

The chicken tikka masala and beef vindaloo with a cheese Naan and a chilli... More

The buffet (it costed 32.5 CHF, I think) includes an appetizer plate, all the food you want from the buffet, bread, no drinks. The food was very... More
