Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Not in Zürich Stadt I confess, but Canton Zürich, and only 18 minutes by S12 from Stadelhofen..

I've recently tried lunch at a couple of places in Winterthur with an Indian buddy.

The first was Jewel of India, Wartstr 23, Winterthur. Overpriced and both suffered from diarrhoea. Nuff said.

The second, Restaurant Tandoor, Schützenstrasse 43, Winterthur (corner of Wulflingerstr) was excellent. The lunchtime buffet of salad, a variety of main courses, Indian, Thai, and Mexican, plus a soft drink , was CHF 15. The restaurant was completely full, which I think says it all. I look forward to trying their a la carte menu.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

As opposed to Colin's experiences, I had a great curry in the Jewel of India, Wartstrasse 23, Winti.
The naan (chilli and garlic) was good, loved the raita, and the lamb vindaloo and butter chicken were definitely worth recommending.
Service is also very good, and the restaurant will be renovated soon, so don't be put off by its rather eclectic decoration right now.
They do a lunch time buffet and even cater, including to Zurich.

I have no affiliation with the restaurant, and I can't comment on how authentic it is, just enjoyed the food there.

Barbra.

I have been to the Jewel of India a few times and the interior decor is modest but I found the food tasty and enjoyable.

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

Sarah was confused, or had her face full of Scotman I think. She recommended a curry house "near the station" (which it is), but couldnt remember the name. She has since been there again and still can't.

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

Jewel of India changed its name to Maharaja Curry. Can anyone recommend the food? Is it close to British Indian curry or very authentic?

I second this recommendation. I've been twice and enjoyed it both times. My friends who live in Winterthur also go there often and do enjoy it a lot.

Pertaining to the OP's question, is it the Best curry in Winterthur? I don't know as it's the only curry I've had in Winterthur but it's certainly very good.

They are the same owners offering almost the same menu as Restaurant Vulkan in Zürich which I always throughly enjoy despite some negative reviews I have seen on EF. In fact, I was there last week and being a repeat guest, was offered 1 complimentary main dish as well as 4 alcoholic drinks (we were a party of 4). Being Punjabi, of course the drink was Whisky !

I used to work in winterthur sometime back and i will NOT recommend maharaja. Food was on average but the service i found was terrible.

If you are looking for authentic indian cuisine then i would definitely recommend Restaurant Tandoor, Schützenstrasse 43, Winterthur.

I used to dine there regularly and get free beers and stuff even my austrian,swiss and german collegues like this restaurant...

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

I've heard some bad reports of some places in Winti. The only one I've actually been to was Restaurant Tandoor which was surprisingly good. I'd try this one if I were you

I can second that. Just been there and the quality is very good and prices are reasonable too.

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

There is a considerably good place for Indian curry in Lausanne. Its called 7 King's curry or something similar and is part of a food court on the first floor of a building at Place Bel-Air. Being an Indian, I must say I was very surprised to find such good curry in Switzerland! There are chinese, thai, european and pizza outlets at the food court as well, in case you go with someone who doesn't like Indian food.

British Indian, I think. Never been to India so my frame of reference is limited.

The food is good though I wouldn’t recommend ordering a takeaway — we waited 2 hours on Friday!

Best deal is the lunchtime buffet —CHF19 (ish) including a drink.

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

I would add my recommendation to the others' for Tandoor at Schützenstrasse 43. We lived about 20 mins away from Winterthur in the early 2000s and went there quite often.

For a la carte you could even request the spices to be adjusted to your taste (spicier for us). We still make it a point to go there if other things permit, in spite of the fact that now we stay almost 300kms away.

Re: The best Indian curry in Winterthur?

I ended up going to Maharaja for a buffet lunch last Thursday instead of Restaurant Tandoor.

The place was packed, good thing my friend had reserved a table, it was the only one available.

The food was fresh and looked inviting but I found the food to be unexciting and a tad bland. The dishes were too mildly spiced. I suppose they were prepared according to Swiss tastes.

There was a chicken curry, a kofta curry, a daal, 2 veggie dishes, rice, naan, raita and bhajias as a starter.

If you enjoy curries but prefer them to be mild, then you will enjoy their buffet lunch, and this is perhaps why they are busy at lunch.

The owner, who is of Pakistani origin, was a nice bloke and took care of us well. I have no problem going back to this place, but not for their buffet. Next time round, I will order a la carte and have them prepare the dishes more authentic, more spicy. And when I say spicy, I do not mean chilli, I mean more spices and more flavourful.

Restaurant Tandoor is still my chosen place in Winti.
