The restaurant is at the edge of the inner city, but worth a detour (take bus number 20 to Wankdorf / Wyleregg and get off at Gewerbeschule). The food is very tasty, for lunch you have usually five or six different menus (vegi, meat, chicken). As a starter, you get a free soup. And the prices are very reasonable. In... More

If you are looking craving great authentic indian food, OKRA is your destination. We had Pakora, raita, samosa for starters. Pakora was the best I tried the my whole life. For the main course we had the kerla fish curry, butter chicken, and vegetable korma. The fist curry is a must try. The main courses come with daal and rice.

We had dinner here and were watching one of the football games from the European Championship. The food is good and service is friendly. I had the mixed Pakoras as a starter. They came with a bit of green salad with an interesting mango dressing. Yum! The Pakoras were excellent. They were a bit tight on the Raita serving though.... More

I am no expert in Indian food but I loved my lamb Thali dish. A wonderful spicy but not too spicy experience. The service is friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and easy-going despite that fact that the restaurant was packed to the last seat. I was there with friends and we had a great evening.

Nice ambience but mediocre food. I have had Indian food in many places around the world but this place is among the worst excuse for Indian I have come across. The service is good but I am not sure if this is actually operated by Indians or Sri Lankans. To be fair it wouldn't matter if the food was good... More

This restaurant serves excellent Indian food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Owner and host Raj is attempted to fulfil all your expectation of a spectacular evening by his charming manner. The varied dishes show the whole potential of Indian cuisine. Try the starters with smoked Indian chees, then Chiken Korma or one of the lamb curry. Its really surprising... More
