Spellbound has become a little unpopular
Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!

I haven't been to the restaurant, from my recollection. What is the reason that some of you don't seem to like it?

Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!

Jays has only 3 menus : meat ( lamb ), fish and vegetarian. The restaurant is not at all elegant ( for my taste at least ). And it's the most expensive Indian restaurant in town. I didn't like the food there but I come for social reasons.

But they don't mind hosting large groups of people, so maybe that's why JustRose organised it there.

Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!

The menu may be limited, but it changes weekly (or bi-weekly, not sure) so that there are always new options and flavors. The staff are friendly and accomodating- which is not often the case in Basel. The atmosphere is social and lively. These are some of the reasons i like Jay's.

If you haven't been, why not come and decide for yourself?

I agree with JustRose that the staff is friendly.

Yes, come and see and then decide.

Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!



I saw "meet up" and "Curry" in the same post and figured that my husband and I could meet some of you Basel fools. But I see that we're too late. It's ok though, as neither of us like really big groups anyway. Perhaps a second meet with the leftover people can be arranged at the "better" Indian place that solaris alluded to...

Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!

Hey DantesDame, keep an eye on the page because often times people change their rsvp closer to the date. However, if it doesn't workout this time then there will definately be other meetups soon!

Hope you are enjoying Basel!

Very much so! The only quibble I have is that most of my winter clothes are in the air shipment that we've been waiting a week for. Walking around in -8C without a good winter coat isn't all that great!

Re: Dinner and Drinks: Basel February Curry!

I'd love to come! But like DantesDame I'm disappointed to see that there's a waiting list, and I like her suggestion of a second meetup. I moved to Basel a week ago and am itching to get out.

JustRose does an excellent job of arranging the Basel EF curries, but there's nothing to stop anyone else arranging something! Go for it.
