The place is unusual for an indan restaurant: decoration is really cosy and refined. The naans are delicious, the veggies too. The waiters are nice and do their best to please you. Book a table, it's usually crowded!

Very delicious indian cuisine from Kerala. The place is tiny and you have to make reservations because it is very appreciated. Very close from the railway station, it offers a very delicious journey to Kerala with simple and selective tastes. For me, it couls be even a bit more spicy, but the owner told me they have to adapt to... More

very nice and positively surprising combinations of various Indian tastes. We enjoyed a tête-à-tête dinner with kind service, no stress and just perfect sizes of portions made by the Indian chef. We'll be definitely back !

The place is located near lausanne gare and they offer yummy south indian dishes. It is a great place for vegetarians as well as non vegetarians. We enjoyed our lunch and dinner there multiple times.

Very tasty and interesting Indian food. Small restaurant with a few tables outside on the pavement. Well served with good tasty food, we chose salads which were delicious, on a very hot summer day. The owner is very friendly, and justifiably proud of his restaurant.

The cooking has a definite Keralite touch to it, which is a welcome change from other Indian restaurants (outside India) which are heavily influenced by Punjabi/North-Indian cuisine. I find that so many 'Indian' restaurants in Switzerland basically try to trick the punters -- serving dishes with Indian names that don't taste anything like the real deal. This is happily not...
