Baslers: Please suggest an Indian &or Mexican restaurant

Dear EF,

Thanks and rep, to the one who suggestion I follow, in advanced for suggestions a Indian and/or Mexican restaurant(s) in Basel.

This is for something special with the wife, without the kids* (we both will surely miss them after 30 minutes). My preference is something with a river view.

*If you dont count the 8 month fetus kicking around inside of my wife.

Thanks,
CK

Re: Baslers: Please suggest an Indian &or Mexican restaurant

It's not Indian or Mexican but for river views with lovely food you can't beat Der Vierte König:

http://www.weinwirtschaft.ch/

For good Mexican food I would go for:

http://www.lafonda.ch/en/home

But it doesn't have river views.

And for Indian either of these:

http://www.mandirbasel.com/English/Home.aspx

http://www.jaysindianfood.ch/

Again, no river views.

On a side note, Congratulations CK on the impending arrival!!! It doesn't seem so long ago that I met your newborn at one of Begga's famous BBQ's!! You and your wife are either very brave or totally bonkers adding to an already impressive brood!!!

I've heard people say that the most passable Mexican restaurant is Hacienda San Pedro. You could also try Cafe Tacuba which occasionally serves Mexican food. There's also La Piratita with Mexican Fast Food.

I've tried La Fonda(mostly Tex-Mex), despised by most Mexicans but liked by many n00bs

The best idea is to cook Mexican at home yourself.

The restaurants have been an utter disappointment.

Re: Baslers: Please suggest an Indian &or Mexican restaurant

Off topic - but I think the Spanish place (nearly Mexican ) is good: Tapas del Mar Spalenburg near Marktplatz.

Another Mexican is

Restaurant Tapadera
Innere Margarethenstrasse 28, 4051 Basel
Phone +41 61 281 55 11, Fax +41 61 281 47 10

Late followup, Mandir was divine!

Hmmand the Bombaylassi cut the excellently spiced curries well.

I want moar!
