Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I get your point about it being a generic term however British would not class any type of Indian food as curry. Curry for them is exactly how you describe as meat or veg in a spicy gravy sauce.
Indian cuisine does not have a Curry (unless you mean Kadhi which is a very specific dish originating from Gujrat). Curry is how the brits identified Indian food and it now encompasses food from the subcontinent (India, Pakistan and Bangladesh).

Having said that, what matters is good grub. You rarely get authentic grub outside of the place of its origin, even within India. If you want truly authentic food, go to the source. Else enjoy how the food is prepared with multiple influences.... :-)

Slight variation... The best Sri Lankan curry in Zürich is at Friends Corner in Josefstrasse. Also one of the cheapest

I could not agree more. I feel speechless when someone mentions the word curry to me. There are some specific 'curry' dishes but any Indian dish with a sauce is being called curry these days.


That being said, Tarmarind Hill (http://www.tamarindhill.ch/), Chalet India (https://www.chaletindia.ch/de/) are good. A lot of Indian food is about vegetarish food so the famous Hilt chain gives you a good feeling. As Indian food is also a lot about spices and chillies, I also enjoy going to Thai restaurants.
