Looking for an Indian Curry in Olten

Does anyone know of any decent places to get a good Indian in Olten? I'm planning on meeting a mate there as it's half way between where we both live. I've made to many mistakes over the years in assuming that a place fours a decent curry because of the smell, staff or use of English only to end up with flavourless food with no heat to it.
Cheers!

http://www.indianpalaceolten.ch/ Went there just once earlier this year and it was pretty good. Not "amazing" but perfectly acceptable, compared with British curry houses.

Ask them to make you a Phaal curry, that will be hot & won't be dumbed down to local taste. If you want hot, you must specify, I always want hotter than the waiter would want to eat.

Re: Looking for an Indian Curry in Olten

Thanks. I'll try the palace. I've been here long enough before to know that the best you can hope for is somewhere you call OK (and wouldn't avoid) in London. But then I'm a midlander so don't think all that much of London curry either

Best value is the buffet at lunchtime.
