Indian Food Lovers Near Altstetten

Hi All,

For those of you who love Indian food, I discovered an amazing restaurant in Altstetten called 'The Coconut'—a short walk from Letzipark in an unassuming cabin fronting a residential building. It has the most authentic Indian food that I've yet eaten in Switzerland. Having been to Indian each year for the past few years I've been hoping that I could find something with the rich layers of flavours that I experienced over there. The couple is from Kerala and on Tuesday they serve Butter Chicken, among other dishes, for around 15 CHF during lunchtime.

Just to be clear, I've no connection with the restaurant whatsoever. Just find the food incredible.

Best,
Chris

Re: Indian Food Lovers Near Altstetten

I'm writing down this one to check it out the next time I'm in the neighbourhood! Thank you for the recommendation. It's soooo hard to find a place where they don't adjust the flavours to the "European taste" which I find extremely frustrating. But I guess it's caused by customers who are afraid of the new taste

Re: Indian Food Lovers Near Altstetten

Thanks for sharing. I got all excited, telling the OH that we were heading there for dinner tonight, and then I checked their opening hours....booo, will never make it there before 3 today! I do hope they get lots of custom and get to remain as a successful business...

Fully agree. I feel that way about Lily's in Zurich. It presents itself as Asian food but it's more like Swiss schnitzel's with soya sauce.
