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.

there is also something called slander

Well saying what is wrong as wrong counts may be slander in your dictionary.

not quite

the facts are they said something in a language you don't understand, it could have been anything, I work with some polish people, when they are talking to each other you would swear they hate each other and are about to have a fight, yet they are very good mates, that's just how it sounds to me

you also imply they poisoned you and your mate, what proof do you have?

and in just about every post you have called them racist

so all in all some pretty slanderous and inflammatory posts

and bingo, so whats your connection to them?
No connection

I mentioned it because people are pointing that I am a racist. And i wanted to bring home the point that I am not. Had I been racist I would not ever go to a pakistani restaurant and more over recommend it here. it is just to empahsize the point that even India and pakistan are arch rivals I do not consider such things when it comes just to eat at a restaurant and so I also expect from people who run the restaurant.
Secondly people are pointing to fact as if in 12 or 14 Sfr fresh Indian food should not be asked . As if I am asking too much by saying the food was stale and that is another reason I mentiong this restaurant because they serve fresh vegeterian food for 11 Sfr. and that is the way it should be.

One goes to a restaurant to eat because one does not want to cook and have a relaxed evening and if u get in restaurant stale food and racial abuse why should not one complain ?

And it is not a big expectation to demand from some one.

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.
So where are you trying to go with this? What outcome is being sought here? If you want to highlight that the owner is not a decent person and the food was not upto the mark, then you have already done so. If there is something more than that which you wish to do, please explain.

Many restaurants run by non-Indian folks advertise it has Indian because it attracts more clientele. I am pretty sure if Chinese folk ate the common Chinese food available in India, they'd have the same complain that it isn't really authentic Chinese (except for the noodles bit).

You are missing the point here. I was verbally abused of being Indian. Imagine if you would have complained that burger is bad abd the guy would have first asked you your nationality and then would have started to say point fingers to people from your nation . What would be your reaction ?

I am surprised your are comparing this case with your stupid burger example and completely ignoring other facts. More over I have never said any such thing about Tamils are Sri lankans comunity but specifically pointed to this restaurant.

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

OP could be Sinhalese for all you know and could have lost his coconut tree to a LTTE shell

Indians in general have absolutely no problem with Sri Lankan Tamils neither do Sri Lankan Tamils have any problem with Indians. Can't speak for fruit cakes on either side though.

I would say having sexy Prabhakaran's photo in a business setting is silly though. Sure have it in your bedroom but restaurant?

Pakistanis and Indians are the same race. Just different nationalities. So to not go to a Pakistani restaurant because it is Pakistani is a nationalistic act not a racist act.

The food may not have been stale. Perhaps it was a new type of cuisine because Ferran AdriÓ closed El Bulli and, lets face it, the world needs - no positively demands - a replacement.

I think it is great that this chap has stepped up to the plate - ahem - so fearlessly.

I have to reply because people are replying to me back as if I am a guilty or I am a racist . I do not mind what so ever you advertise but atleast the simple things I expect from a restaurant is not to racialy profile there customers and serve fresh food. I guess not a big expectation.

More over if they HAD some strong bias and aversion towards some community then they should not fool people of that community by using the name of the community in the name in front of there restaurant. Atleast people would be saved from abuse.

Wow an another invention. There is nothing called Stale Roti or Stale Rice or Stale Daal or Stale Subji and Spinach as any Indian or Tamil or Sri lankan cuisine.

When it comes to eat food neither I am racist nor nationalistic, as i said i brought up Pakistani restaurant to just point two things which I had already said and i had already been to couple of Tamil and Sri Lankan restaurants never I had such treatment.

it is very surprising to me that people are kind of pushing me to accept two things 1. if i just had got a meal for 14 Sfr. I should be greatful to this restaurant no matter what they serve me 2. Forget the racial abuse and just simply praise that restaurant because they served you 4 'curries' for so cheap. 3. never mind going to a doctor next day after going to this restaurant because 'we' had a positive expereince and hence your experience is not valid .

WOW thats an amazement for me to see the comments . The reason i wrote the post was to inform people and ask for relevant place to report racial abuse since I did not knew where to report it. THAT's ALL.

Okay.
'Racial profiling' is not applicable here, do look up its actual meaning. Am also sure that they did not serve stale food to you in particular.
I guess most people in this thread are questioning your tone and phrases which you have used.
Again, you have highlighted about the eating place. I think the purpose of your post is served, and I believe you are quite upset at whatever happened. But it would be best to move on with our lives now?

Out of curiosity did sexy Prabhakran's photo have a garland around it? Lack of garland would mean that they think he is still alive? No? I am not up to date with all the customs.

Yes sure . I am moving with my life and i hope so are you. I have done what i thought is right. Yes I highlightened the eating place but the purpose of the post was also to highlighten the racial discrimination and for that I had filed a complaint as well . I got comments which pointed as if I had done some crime by reporting to authorities this case. And I had to write back to clarify.

Good Luck in moving fast with your life.
