very nice and positively surprising combinations of various Indian tastes. We enjoyed a tête-à-tête dinner with kind service, no stress and just perfect sizes of portions made by the Indian chef. We'll be definitely back !

The place is located near lausanne gare and they offer yummy south indian dishes. It is a great place for vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. We enjoyed our lunch and dinner there multiple times.

Very tasty and interesting Indian food. Small restaurant with a few tables outside on the pavement. Well served with good tasty food, we chose salads which were delicious, on a very hot summer day. The owner is very friendly, and justifiably proud of his restaurant.

The cooking has a definite Keralite touch to it, which is a welcome change from other Indian restaurants (outside India) which are heavily influenced by Punjabi/North-Indian cuisine. I find that so many 'Indian' restaurants in Switzerland basically try to trick the punters -- serving dishes with Indian names that don't taste anything like the real deal. This is happily not...

Just walking by a noticed this place, small but clean and neat. A meat, fish and vegetarian option for lunch and a small dinner menu that seemed to have enough of my Indian favorites. One waiter appears to have chosen the wrong career path, but mine was friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.

I had a delightful experience at this wonderful Indian restaurant very close to Lausanne Gare. Wonderful choice on the menu. Great, warm and hospitable staff. The place is small and cosy and would recommend booking a table in advance. I happen to walk in and the staff was very accommodative though. Try the Veg Thali, not typical Indian taste pallet,...

I went twice for lunch together with a group of friends who highly recommended the place. I was not particularly impressed, the attention is not that good, not that people are unfriendly, they are not, but one has to wait quite sometime to be attended. The daily menus, 3 to choose from, are good, but neither fabulous nor spicy enough.... More
