small and very welcoming restaurant in the old city part of Zurich with a very friendly Sri Lankan chef who not only prepares outstanding food from his homeland (great also for vegetarians) but also tasty local Swiss dishes. There is definitely something for everybody to be had: from meat lover to vegetarian, from more adventurous eater who likes it hot... More

I went there with family and I can tell you one thing: it's not terrible. But please spend your money elsewhere! While the meat is really chewy, the soups just don't taste like anything. The service was unfortunately even worse, I had to ask twice to get cutlery and even then I did not receive a napkin at all. The... More

Went there with a group on voucher. Was really good and funny to get Swiss food served from Indian people. Really really nice it was and service is good

I had the vegetable burin which is fine. The rice is not a traditional Indian one but it's ok. The atmosphere is nice and the services is warm especially to welcome the late diners. The price is expensive for Indian food.

A simple and charming place at good location. Apart from some traditional Swiss dishes, they have a number of Indian ones. The curries we had were average canteen food with no refinement. The gap between what they serve and charge is just too wide!

Located next to zurich library and has a decent seperate seating area outside. Friendly service and good quality of food. Cuisine more on the Swiss side but a Corden Bleu can never really go wrong. Fish disk tends to be more on the random luck side but overall it is reasonable.

Equipped with a voucher of DeinDeal we went for Züri Gschnätzlets. This local dish can be seen as a measure when comparing reataurants offering similar kind of food. The location and place did find our approval. Nice weather of course is helping a having dinner outside. Friendly staff made us welcome and we started with a gespritzten Weissen, white wine... More

Truly fantastic restaurant in Zurich. Quiet little place away from the crowds in the old town, but close enough that you can walk from the old town in minutes. We went here for lunch one day and then back for dinner that night because it was such an amazing experience. One of the specials was mushroom ravioli and it was... More
