I eat here at least once a week for lunch and the food is reliably yummy and plentiful. There is a garden for eating outside when the weather is nice and plentiful seating inside. The service people are friendly and helpful. My only complaint is that the togo containers leak if you don't keep them absolutely horizontal.

To round up a short trip to Bern, we enjoyed dinner at the Okra. The service was very good and the food delicious. The athmosphere felt Indian and was supported by the rather limited space in the room. We can well recomed the Okra, and will go there agin for sure.

We had dinner in the Okra and the staff was very attentive and friendly. We felt very well taken care of. The food was ok but rather dull and not really memorable. We would most likely look for another restaurant to eat Indian food next time.

Food was excellent, maybe will call for extra spicy next time. Service can improve, we waited too long for the food. But: we where there just after opening of the temporary kitchen during renovation. So this might be better when we come again. And that's for sure!

We enjoyed some really good shahi dishes with a great home baked garlic nan. We got the food very quick and nicely arranged. The staff was super friendly and as we had to wait for a while we were offered dessert for free. The restaurant was constantly packed all evening. If you plan to go there: call and reserve a...

The service was great and friendly. Those curry tasted really good, but we're not satisfied with naam, it's like a normal bread that we used to buy in the supermarket in Spain. I love naam so much, but NOT in this restaurant.

We went there on a Saturday evening for dinner. The service was at first very friendly and further on also pushy with selling. Service should not ask children if they wish another drink. Sure children will always want more. It is enough if I am being asked once if all is OK, I don't need 3 different waiters to ask... More
