The best Indian curry in Zurich?

While I've heard that the options aren't great, I'm in search of a good Indian curry restaurant in Zurich. Has anyone been to a good one?

We went to Khans above Zic Zaks in the old town last Friday and thought it was great, a bit on the hot side for the medium curries but very nice - I would highly recommend the Goan Fish Curry

There's also a great Indian just outside Oerlikon on the Tram 11 route, near Bad Allanmoos stop - i'll see if I can locate the name.

I've heard very good stories about the Kerala, although I have never been. The Vulkan is pretty good, but Pataks is even better

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

see Restaurant tips - general for Zurich

also do add to that thread with recommendations. It should make a good read.

www.swisswiki.ch/index.php/Restaurants has a list too....

Kings Kurry and Spice Route are two good places.

Ravi's in Wipkingen used to be the place to go.....years ago.

The Vulkan on Klingenstrasse? I wasn't impressed. I usually order a jalfrezi to "calibrate" the restaurant. They don't do jalfrezis. So I ordered a lamb rogan josh. And I wasn't impressed. How do you get that one wrong? Some of the starters seemed to have come out of a cardboard box from the freezer and into a microwave.

I've had curries in Goa, Mumbai, U'Daipur (one of which was in the hotel in the lake that is featured in Octopussy), Ahmedabad, Birmingham and Bradford. As well as Manchester and various places in London, including Southall and Stoke Newington.

Has anyone else here had a Goan vindaloo? When I ordered mine, the waiter told me it was "very sour", with a wonderful roll on the "r" in "sour". He wasn't wrong . It was hot too.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I had many good curries in Goa, and I was always impressed with the curried prawns still in their shells. Much burning of fingers followed.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

As A Indian I love my country food, especially south Indian food.

And when I miss it here, I go to Kobal Cafe in Kanzelaistrasse.

Try Dosai(SouthINidan Rice pan cake ) in this restaurant .... Then you will look for Dosai in every indian place



SOme of you wanted too cook.. I guess cooking is not at all difficult.
now you get the ingredient pretty easily in some INdian shop.
Alos you can get some instant mix dry curry powder along with instructions availabe in these shops. I guesss you can make better curry and rise at home than any shop.
you just need find this shop, I guess there are plenty in zürich.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Just came back from having a curry buffet at Tandoor Haus on Seefeld strasse. For Just 27 Franks it was a deal! and the food specially the tandoori ( grilled) chicken was great.
Must visit it again when the buffet is on

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

Kings WAS good but went down hill.
Spice room was ok - good.
Korma sutra do a good sunday brunch for 29chf's. Havent been for a while but the service was great and the selection was also very good.
Kobal was definately fab but gets very busy and doesn't have much room.

I'm always on the hunt for a good curry....

It was the bollocks, almost on par with that Glasgow curry I had before that

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

If you live near or are able to get to Kusnacht then give the following a whirl. Been twice very friendly & accomodating. If they don't have what you want on the menu then you can usually ask. Found it better than the vulcan.

Why does so many here mention Vulkan? The time I went there with some friends and ordered about 4-6 dishes (can't remember exactly) between us, it was really nothing to write home about, nor recommend. Walked out with no intentions of returning. Is it because of the location that everyone seems to have tried it out?

I don't mind Patak's but good Keralan curries don't come out of them. The buffet at Kerala is pretty good if you've never been. But I just love the dried masala lamb....

Though if we could only get Larich mixes in Zurich (like Patak's but Sri Lankan) ....

My favourite at the moment is Spice Route though I've heard that Spice Gourmet (enge) is also pretty good.

We went to Masala near Stauffacher a few weeks ago. It was good but the mango lassi was definitely something to write home about.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

I think it must have been Kobal's that I went to. A friend took me there, it's down some side street not far from Langstr. - I fear I'll never find it again. Loved the food! My 5 years living in Italy left me VERY deprived of the good old ruby murrie! When's the next Zürich curry night? I hope to make it this time.

Re: The best Indian curry in Zurich?

In Zürich, the best is either Tandoor in Oerlikon. Also, Tandoor
took over the old Korma Sutra.
