We have found the Royal Palace on Spalenring to be very good. I have had to cook most of my curries as we could not find a good curry in Basel, France or Germany until we discovered the Royal Palace. Recommended!
I went there on Friday for their lunch buffet. Not the cheapest Indian buffet around (23.50 plus drinks) but the quality was excellent. They do the buffet Tue-Fri and have a different main dish each day.

Indian Tandoori Palace can be good but can be rubbish for the same price.

Re: Mandir vs Indian Tandoori Palace - Basel

Going to throw it out there as an honourable mention... Biryani Haus in Kleinbasel does pretty decent curries and their prices are unbeatable. There's something going on with their website(s) recently, meaning they're not reachable, but you can get to them via Facebook and http://www.biryanihaus.net.

It seems they also do an offer where, for CHF 300 a month, they will send you a lunch or dinner meal (i.e. delivered) any weekday you want one - so every day, if you want. That's a pretty cool idea, I reckon.

Re: Mandir vs Indian Tandoori Palace - Basel

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the three. I had dinner with the OH at Mandir this past Friday, was out with colleagues at the Tandoori Palace last week and occasionally stop at the Royal Palace which used to be a regular spot when I lived in the area.

Here is how I would rank them:

SERVICE:
1. Mandir
2. Royal
3. Tandoori

The head waiter at Mandir (bald gentleman) is always on top of the room and very attentive. Tandoori is abysmal, but we go there for work quite often so are at least known to them.

PRICE (high to low)
1. Royal
2. Mandir
3. Tandoori

TASTE
1. Tandoori
2. Mandir
3. Royal

Most of our UK colleagues ask to go back because of this, rather than the service. I have to agree. Mandir is a close second, but I think the vegetables and dishes are just fresher at Tandoori.

LOCATION - tram ready
1. Mandir (3)
2. Royal. (1 and even 6)
3. Tandoori. (3) then walk

LOCATION-if driving
1. Tandoori
2. Royal
3. Mandir

Parking lot down the hill from Tandoori. Good luck at Mandir (Spalentor).

BUSINESS DINNER
1. Tandoori
2. Mandir
3. Royal

Both 1&2 are right on the edge of Alt Stadt, so when guest are done, a nice walk through the alleys and narrow streets is often appreciated on the way to a bar or tram stop. Outside seating at Tandoori is also nice in the summer.

Re: Mandir vs Indian Tandoori Palace - Basel

I've given it a try a few times. Unfortunately the owner is very rude. Try asking for Hahnewasser (tap water) and all hell breaks loose. The food was good, nothing spectacular. Perhaps among the best in Basel, although that in itself means little, since the competition is so weak.
