I suppose so, but his accusations about the mans terrorist pursuits goes far beyond a crap curry and has shown where the true hatred lies.

The OP didn't actually accuse the waiter/owner of terrorism -- just admiration for someone the OP regards as a terrorist. But yes, it does look rather like he had more of a problem with the political opinions of the restaurant staff than with the microwaved budget meal, per se.

Importing drinks from china with greek labels on top and selling on name of Guava and mango juice is definitely a trick and cheating.
Who's throwing the racial slurs now ?

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

I would like to ask the OP how many Tamil South Indian restaurants he has eaten at in Zurich , just to understand the Thread Title.
Incidentally, should this not be in the complaints forum as it is a complaint about racism rather than just the restaurant?

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

I though Tamils were Indians - shipped out from India by the Brits to work on the tea plantations and politically disadvantaged after independence because the Sinhalese form c. 75% of the population?

Be that as it may, I still don't think that the Liberation Tigers of the Tamil Eelam can really be described as anything other than terrorists. Not every Sri Lankan Tamil was an LTTE member/supporter by a long way, and the tactics and activities of the LTTE were atrocious. The fact that Sri Lankan Tamils had legitimate grievances doesn't excuse that and all major international bodies regarded the LTTE as a terrorist group.

As for the curry...if I paid CHF 14 for a meal and survived I'd count myself lucky...

This guy from Sri Lanka carries deep seeted hatred in his mind and come here and get asylum but still remain a LTTE terrorist in his mind and heart.

He should have better stayed back home and continued his ' work '.
.

This statement seems to point more in the direction of the OP's main issue than any curry. Who's the racist here?

Yes, it does. (Quite likely more than that, in fact.)

Just move on.

well a juice can also cost 20 Fr if you go to Hilton but we are talking here a simple bottle you buy from Coop or Migros and which is not packed months ago and has expiry date of 2 years !. I wrote this to let people know what they sell so they cannnot befool more people.

well there are two main issues in my first post. 1. Bad food 2. Racial abuse done .

I have not said to boycott all sri lankan restaurants nor did i said that all people in restaurant were like him but this was racist.

I would be racist if I say that all Srilankans are bad and all sri lankan or tamil restaurant serves bad food based on this experience but i have never said so.

You can pay 11 SFr. as a student in pakistani restaurant BOMBAY-KARACHI and have a fresh food rather than paying this restaurant even 1 SFr for a STALE food. It is alteast fresh .

it is complaint about two things 1. food 2. Racial abuse .

As a complaint for bad food I had already reported matter to Police and for 2 I had made formal letter and recorded my friend's statement to be submitted to a proper agency for racial abuse.

Yeah please do that . Order a vegeterian menu and go in late evening. also order a mango or guava juice and then ask yourself is this imported cheap stuff from China really worth at all. If you look like Indian tell this short fat guy there that food is BAD and see how he would threaten you with fierce eyes and rude speech.

Yes i do had problems because of the treatment i recieved for no fault of mine. It is like in Europe you frown and hate people who deny Holocaust or support Neo Nazis. It is the type of feeling you would also have when some one fanactic hanging picture of Osama Bin Laden would abuse you if u r just American without being any fault of yours.
I as a customer just complained him the food is stale and he immediately started firing shots at me just because I am an Indian. If you cannot understand this well I hope you to get mature.

not being funny here, but if you tell any resturant owner there food is terrible then you'd get the same reaction, and if you then eat what they give you then your totally mad.

as for the drinks, ffs give it a rest will you, if you want swiss made drinks then go to migros or coop and buy them, 4chf for a drink in a resturant is cheap, pure and simple, I really couldn't care where the drink has come from, but imho curry needs a decent beer, not a cheap soft drink

I seriously think you need to calm down.
I am calm . Had i been not calm I would not have walked calmly out of restaurant even after being abused.

My only aim in writing this post is to save people from bad food and especially Indians from going to this restaurant for this guy in restaurant hate Indians like anything and I would not like that other Indian people evening have there evening spoiled like I had mine by going to this racist restaurant.

Not to mention the next day I had to take half day leave to see the doctor.

Well there is something called Free speech and I would say strongly and loudly the treatment I recieved and bad food offered to me. If you have a appeasing mindset it is you . Good luck with that . I do not discriminate people on basis of there ethnicity and no would i tolerate any discrimination.
