Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

In fact while you are at it I suggest prohibiting any posts which discuss competitive comparisons with places where the offering is far better. In fact that kind of behaviour sounds almost....swiss. Bring it on.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Dave, I agree with you that there is far better curry to be had in London (England or Ontario, for that matter). Regardless it does not help me get a good one here in Zurich.

My "thanks" to nanda was for her sushi recommendations.

And, yes, I have been in German-speaking Europe for almost six years, I feel more organized every day.

.

Go to the Tandoor in Oerlikon. Have the vege curry and then see if you can still make that statement.
I could not find a website or address for the Tandor in Oerlikon - or is this the Handi Restaurant? This was really nice food and very friendly, but I have not been for over 3 years. Pakistani style cooking.
Would be interested if there is really a Tandor restaurant. Anyone have the address?

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I tried the Tandoor in Baar, and it is not as good as
the one in Oerlikon although it is the same "chain".

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

This explains it - Tandoor Oerlikon not Tandor - this works OK in Google - Thanks

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Just wanted to add that there's a parallel thread on indian places in Winterthur, which is just after all 18 mins from Zurich.

So don't forget to check those out too.

maybe i went on particularly bad night but a lot of people seem to rate this restaurant and unfortunately for me (seeing as I live a mere 5 mins walk away) it wasn't very nice, we also got a a takeaway from there once, cost over 100CHF and half went in the bin, not good at all - I much prefer the Madras curry house in Oerlikon. But based on the positive feedback for Tandoor I may be persuaded to give it another go

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I have been searching in Switzerland (and adjoining lands) for about 10 years. I think I have been to most of the Indian/Pakistani/Sri Lankan restaurants. Still looking for something similar to my local Indian in Nelson in lancashire.
Not even got close yet and it has cost me a fortune.
One day I will say Eureka! Never give up hope.
Me and my friend are off to the Oerlikon Tandoori next week - will give you feedback.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I echo other posts earlier , King's Kurry and Muniandy Villas are my favourites ... Both have excellent curry .

I hope you find your 'El Dorado' of curry .

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Did you have their vindaloo?

They have the hottest vindaloo in Zurich (I got a chilli rush) but the rest of the stuff was so-so.

Ummm, I ate there about a month ago and would not advise anyone to go there. The food was just plain bad.

I have the same question as krlock3... "why was it good?".

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

To be fair it's a while since I was there (coupla months) but my colleague took a customer there just the other night and said it was great . I did have their vindaloo thought it was fab . Reminded me of a good London curry house but it's horses for courses (not literally) . If i could find one anywhere near as good in lausanne I would be over the moon . I had a chilli naan and though it was spot on .

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

One can buy ready made heat and eat Indian curries and other dishes from barkat.. they cost only about 4 francs each serves about 3 people..
buy the ready to eat paranthas or roties and you have a ready meal.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Maybe the Vindaloo is the best thing to order at Raja Bongo. My vegi platter seemed to be out of tins (especially the fruit salad)!

I had a meal there a good couple of years ago. I asked the manager/owner (not sure) why his prices were so high, he put it down to the high quality of the produce he bought. I bumped into him in the cash and carry a couple of months later, his trolley was piled high with run of the mill frozen lamb and chicken. He had the grace to blush.

i went there a couple of years ago too and really poor quality food. i think it is run by a bangladeshi. Avoid.

Not being funny Danny but as far as I could tell he was from Manchester plus my few years ago (how time flies) was probably 8-9. Anyway he did throw in a good few cognacs and a good gab.
