Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

I'm not going to bother reading the posts since my last one as I am sure it's just the OP whining. But I do find it funny when an Indian calls a Lanka racist.

Talked to the owner on the way home, and they were all laughs about the OP in the restaurant, def not out to assassinate you as you may have us think.

Some points:

- your friend ordered roti + veggie, so not sure why you are complaining that you got veggies
- he explained to you quite clearly that the curries and roti are cooked at noon and then re-heated when ordered
- re replaced the rotis you complained about with rice
- you were insistent that spinach and beets are not veggies
- you berated him in Hindi (my interpretation: you arrogantly think that all Brown people speak Hindi and clearly you are clueless that Hindi is not at all spoken in Lanka) so that is why (north) Indian came up in the first place
- the 4 chf drink you were complaining about actually cost 3.5 (not really a point but just to show you are loose with facts and no one actually believes you got food poisoning) and you were complaining that it was a mango juice all the way from THAILAND. well mangoes don't grow in switzerland last time i checked, but let's just presume you were so arrogantly unhappy cuz it wasn't indian mango juice

anyways, since racism has very inaccurately been brought up (paki on paki racism i guess), it really is self-entitled whiny indians like you that expect things a certain way that we call you mamma's boys

let the replies roll and i will check back in a month or so ...

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

But seriously, who goes to the police over such a minor incident in life.

Just be happy there aren't some Tamil Tigers knocking at your door.

In Sri Lanka, there are Sri Lankan Tamils and Indian Tamils. The former have been living there for millenia, the latter for 150 years. Two distinct groups, although given how many people were shuffled around during Empire, only nationalists emphasise it.

May be vegetable is curry but chopped beetroot do not count curry ... Just Mung Daal do not count curry .. if these all are curries then everything is curry hence your understanding of Indian cuisines is very little and non sensible. Importing drinks from china with greek labels on top and selling on name of Guava and mango juice is definitely a trick and cheating. Even a simple fresh jiuice 200 ml manufactured in switzerland do no cost 4 SFr . No one expects 5 star service in a small resturant and nor do i said i expected but NO ONE ALSO EXPECTS STALE FOOD BEING SERVED.
Well they might be freindly with you because you might be TAMIL or from SOUTH INDIA . I have no doubts about it.

Well check out indian students blog called INSAZ and many indian students said there that they also had BAD FOOD served in NIMMI in past.

it clearly appears to me now that this resturant has a good service for all other people except Indian people. For this guy clearöy said to me ' You and Your people we have enough of you ' after he asked me from where I am. If you do not beleive me we can go together and verify may be then you give people on this forum an explanation for this statement.

This guy has racial hatred deep rooted in his mind his attitude shows clearly. Not to mention the pictures of terrorist Prabhakaran he hangs in his resrutant. I guess probabaly he would have been one of LTTE members himself and would have taken pleasure in killing Indians in past with the level of ager he demonstrated when i told him I am Indian.

And i should also mention that it was only one of this guy in resturant . I never said that whole restaurant staff was like him but he silenced everyone when he came to abuse me.

may be you go and ask him or better we go together and come back and explain people of this forum what happened and then it would be clear who is right and who is wrong.
Tortillas in Mexico cost ca. 10 pesos per kg (less than 1 franc), the mexican store El Maiz in zurich sells the kilo at ca. 14 fr.

A bottle of .5L Coca Cola in Mexico costs ca. .30fr, here costs ca. 1.20fr

Should I call the police? Also the salaries here are higher than in Mexico, should the police be involved?

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

When it comes down to it, why is judgement being passed about this picture of the "terrorist leader". Perhaps the owner didn't see him as such, even if the OP did.

I'll cite the Euro. Nobody could agree on who to put on the notes, since a hero to some was a villain to others (in they went with buildings, etc).

It doesn't even have to be as extreme as hero and villain. Obama is seen as a foolish leader by some, but that doesn't stop them flocking to the IRS offices where his picture hangs (oh, if only...)

Next time I'm in Zuri, I'll give this place a try. Up in my "fairy tale Switzerland", I'm getting a little sick of Roesti, Raclette, and Pizza Margherita..

EDIT: And why are you surprised to not have fresh mango juice? Have you ever seen a mango tree in Switzerland? Let alone plantations large enough to sustain a beverage line. The bottle appears to have been made in China, just like the bottles for fresh juice at COOP. Then shipped to Greece, where mango juice makes much more sence, then sent here. What's the problem with that?

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...
There WERE Tamils shipped over to Ceylon by the Brits, BUT your story is wrong nevertheless

The Chola-Empire was one of the most important Indian kingdoms and is regarded as a Tamil kingdom. Its heydays lasted from the 9th to the 13th Century. And this was quite q while before the Brits arrived

The first Tamils immigrated to Ceylon in the first century AD, which in Asia may be RECENT, but in any European view is quite a way back

A) 25% is more than I would have thought
B) the Liberation Tigers of the Tamil Eelam can and ARE described as the independence movement of the Tamils on Sri Lanka
C) Switzerland never regarded the LTTE as "terrorists", but the judiciary fairly often investigated against supposed LTTE chaps in Switzerland in regard to blackmail against Tamils in Switzerland

--- the Canton of Zürich is member of the Swiss Confederation, but not of your "international organisations" .... and this means that to the police forces in Zürich, the LTTE never was a terrorist organisation, but a rebel organisation based on Sri Lanka

D) the thing of the LTTE were not some "grievances" but that they wanted to secede from the Republic of Sri Lanka. All available reports of course say that it is not clear but most likely that a majority of Tamils supported the idea of National Tamil independence. That the manager of Nimmi is among them looks fairly obvious.

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.
A) Bad food ? Have you thought about packing some pieces of the food into a "serviette" to hand the stuff over to the Gesundheitsamt right the next morning ? no ? your bad, as "proof" is essential

B) Do you have witnesses who can confirm his "racism" ? As otherwise, everybody will assume that it simply was a heated dispute about Sri Lankan politics
--B-2 ) I now reveal something very shocking for you. For any judge here in Zurich, YOU and the Nimmi chief re the same "race"

Re: Worst Tamil South Indian Resturant in Zurich

Hello Guys,

Nimmi restaurant ,,, it is not a south indian tamil one. It is a srilankan Tamil restaurant. The owner of the business place is, S.K.Nadan who is the cousin of Thamil selvem , prominant terrorist.

You all talking about abusing & going for further legal measures. becareful, these guys do not have a brain at all and they may use sharp tools to harm you at street. LTTE terrorists ruined our country for last 35 years & thanks to Mr. president of srilanka, no LTTE any more at srilanka soil.

I am requesting you guys to not to buy stuffs @ LTTE shops at Josheps strasse or eat at their restaurants. portion of their income will be going to LTTE terrorist`s account and they purchase deadly weapens, recruit child soldirers & suicide bombs, parralyze general lifde style of innocient tamils in srilanka etc.
My post is rather political but this is the actual situation in srilanka. please read this and do not deal with terrorist shope, restaurants. we need a peaceful world to live.

thanks,

Well, I must say it is very comforting to know that if I should ever be racially insulted about being Romanian for example, in English, in a restaurant with an SVP poster hanging on a wall, that EF members will be so understanding.

Unless a number of them have already decided they love the restaurant, of course.
An SVP poster on a wall in a restaurant is not a racial insult against anybody, but I would recommend EVERYbody to get out

Hi,

1. sinhalese are 78 % of total population & tamils were 15 % before. But most of tamils arrived to europe / other countries and current tamil population is less than 10% in srilanka.

2. Tamils have two origins as upcountry tamils & nothern - eastern tamils. second group is living in nothern & eastern part of the island.

3. Argument is,, they came from India,, same as tamils settle in switzerland. both occations, they came for work.

3. Upcountry tamils r living happy with general sinhalese / muslims in the country all over the country while less than 3 % of tamils are asking seperate country. ha ha
4. LTTE collecting money by tamils in europe by force & 30% will keep with money collecting agents.

Somebody called me? Let me explain (for about the tenth time on this website or so...)

The most commonly used scientific definition of "racism" has nothing to do with skincolor, nationality or religion per se - but any factor that makes it possible to single out a group and make them a scapegoat. So if a Brit decides that he does not eat at restaurants managed by gingers - no matter if they have the same religion, language, passport, skin color (except of the freckles...)... he is a racist. I know that's not how the term is used in daily life, but that's the way it would be used legally. So yes, the comments the OP got were racist.
His attitude towards Chinese juice seems racist to me as well...

Well, you know... it's about the way you rant on here - the OP brought up some fifteen points out of which only the racist comment seems a reasonable point to argue about.

From the other 14 unreasonable points and the fact that the OP said that he went to the cops for this experience, most EF users concluded that he is a bit of a nutter. If I went to the cops every time I hear a racist comment against Germans - even on this forum - well, I'd have a fulltime job filing complaints.

"prominent terrorist" ? I think this is meant sarcastic-ironic ? frankly-spoken I have no idea who the man was and what we did. I can only guess that he was another man fighting for the independence of Tamil Sri Lanka. And so, to me, he is not a terrorist, but simply a secessionist man.

Your Brit/Ginger analogy is one of a simpler prejudice , not of racism. Racism does not involve any factor for it be used as a prejudice, it needs a racial bias.

I believe from your posts above that you have hopelessly confused Racism with Prejudice when you talk about Ginger/German/Brits.

I have included an OED definition of Racism for you. Most other references will have similar definitions.

1) The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race , especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

2) Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior:
a programme to combat racism

I am surprised that you have had to explain your incorrect belief 10 times on this site without being corrected.

1) not surprising. 10% ? Similar to the Ticinesi who in Switzerland, if you include the Ticinesi OUTside of the Ticino are between 6 and 10%, and HAVE their own Canton and their own government and their own government and their own parliament.
3) where did the Singhalese come from originally ?
4) widely investigated. Latest result here is that Swiss judiciary agents were cheating and not Tamils. The general comment in the media was "if WE have such crooks, how can WE condemn that THEY also had/have crooks among them ? "
5) the Tamils in Switzerland saved the "served" gastronomy. Otherwise, typical restaurants here around would look like places in Las Vegas

Well, I know the theories outlined ...... and I can understand the position. I do not envy the post-WWII-generation in Germany for a minute. Really not, I can tell you !

This is the reason why THIS man, in spite of faults and mistakes, still is so highly respected

I have included an OED definition of Racism for you. Most other references will have similar definitions.

1) The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race , especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.

2) Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior:

Race 2. a a limited group of persons descended from a common ancestor; a house, family, kindred

b a tribe, nation or people, regarded as of common stock

c a group of several tribes or peoples, forming a distinct ethnical stock

d one of the great divisions of mankind, having certain physical peculiarities in common

(OED - I've missed out lots of other definitions involving dogs and horses...)
