I used to go few years back but stopped going because of highly slow service and high price. Recently I had to visit it with some friend of mine who wanted to eat something Indian. As usual the order came very late. Then the nans we ordered were wrong. We then had to wait for new nans in mid of... More

This restaurant offers really good food overall. The Paneer dishes are amazing. The chicken dishes were not the best. The ambiance is decent, but not a fine dining location.

A group of us (four in total), dropped in to the restaurant on a 'why not' basis. One of the party was a vegetarian from India. The food is very typical of the 'Euopean-style' Indian theme and we chose a range of meat and non-meat dishes. Everything arrived in a reasonable time and the tastes were fine, but not exceptional.... More

Ordered a meal for two: prawn biryani, naan bread, mixed raita and samosas. Ordered at 19:00 for a 19:45 delivery, came just after 20:00, hot and ready to eat! Food was good, spiced perfectly, flavours were great, and would definitely order again. { Not sure about other reviews on here where people say it is not "real" Indian food, do... More

Thought I would retry the Palais Indien after 4 years since last visit. It was certainly better than it was back then. Not very busy so service was ok, Were given the option of having 'Indian' or 'European' spicing and we chose Indian style which is what I think made the difference to last time. Alcohol is not served but... More

Overpriced for Indian food. Although the host is a nice person, the service is unbearably slow. He is the only one working, waiting table and answering phone calls. The food is mediocre. Maybe we had too many good Indian food all over the world, and really cannot understand how could someone mess up some basic india dishes.

Perhaps I count myself to be a bit of a connoisseur of indian food, or we were expecting too much of this place, that we came back disappointed. The food to us wasnt really indian enough, and the taste not good enough. Maybe if you don't know the taste of indian food and are seeking a bit of variety then... More

We ordered a take away to be delivered. It was 45 minutes late. When we phoned the restaurant to find out when it would be delivered they just hung up on us rudely. When it finally arrived, the Dahl was awful.

Food very average, undercooked, only one staff member serving all tables and naturally many mistakes made taking orders and serving food to tables. No alcohol served! Below average.

I love Indian food and have gotten it all over Europe, the Middle East and the US. This is very average food. For starters I was given two not-fresh papadums with no sauces. My entree was the chicken biryani - the chicken meat was very dried out and chewy, and the rice was also quite dry. Normally this dish is... More

This is a very good Indian restaurant in the old town of Vevey. It has a terrace in the summer. The owner is from Bangladesh and the waiters from India. The quality of the food is excellent.
