Did I say it applies only to Indian owners?
Sort of. Had you omitted the word 'Indian' in your sentence, I'd have totally agreed with you.

Your fully justified observation applies to most cuisines not limited to Indian.

Bombay Karachi at Stampfenbachstrasse 32 is great for lunch.

Second that. Not high cusine but good value. My girlfriend (Indian) nags me constantly to eat there.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Just re-discovered this place in Baden:
http://www.tajmahal-baden.ch

Excellent, authentic Indian food reasonably priced (as compared to Zurich).
Really nice crisp naans, lovely curries and Tandooris.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Thought I might resurrect this post, since I see that the Madras Curry House appears to have shut up shop. Any recommendations for decent Indian curry (i.e. not style over substance) in the Oerlikon area?

It's excellent, run by my neighbor, who has been torturing us with the lovely smell of his cooking for years!

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Looks great but at 30 CHFs per dish, that's comparable to Atul Kutcher.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

It's amazing how Indian food is one of the cheapest cuisines to make at home, yet one of the most overpriced to buy in restaurants.

Well, if you do not take into account the Time & effort needed to cook then yes it is cheap to cook at home i agree but i have to say authentic indian cuisine does take a lot of time & planning.

Everytime we invite friends over for dinner, my wife starts her cooking atleast a day before and cooking with precise time to put in ingredients

In Indian restaurants, they make huge batches of the base ingredients... it does not take so long to cook the various curries, and the quality of meats etc are on the low end of the scale. It is a cheap (yet undeniably delicious) cuisine.

Indian restaurants in Europe are like European restaurants in India and everyone in india have the same opinion about european restaurant food (Overpriced & delicious) as europeans have on indian restaurant food

But if you talk about the cuisine then Indian is one of the difficult ones and costs more to get it right IMO

Try butter naan, Chicken tikka masala and tandoori chicken at Tandoorhaus in Seebach, far authentic and cheap compared to many other so called Posh indian restaurant.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Korma sutra gets our vote! Fantastic bhuna and tikka masala (better than the uk where tikka massala's seem to now taste of coconut sun lotion!!). Not sure it counts as a good 'Indian' curry though. I met a South Indian at ski school who reckoned the best Indian restaurant was in Horgan though no idea what it's called. However, assuming there is no more than one there.

I think he probably means this one in Horgen Oberdorf

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Found this place a couple of week's ago on Badenerstrasse near Altstetten:

http://curry-queen.ch/

The prices are pretty good, the portions are generous and the curries are nice.

Good cooking needs planning. When in the kitchen in Military Service once for a three weeks and a half period, I saw how our chief started preparations three days ahead. UNused sauces were mixed up for forther use.


But the Price Level is not due to this but based on
- Price of location
- Price of importation


But there is a reason why so many Greek restaurants here have disappeared. They went too far in having high prices
