“Authentic affordable Indian Food in Interlaken”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Visited Shanthi retaurant for Dinner yesterday. To start with this restaurant is easily accessible from Railway station (5mins walk). It has good parking facilities (underground parking complex) .

We were well received and welcomed warmly by the restaurant manager. He gave us accurate details of menus. I must highlight that the food is really cooked after you place the order. But we were surprised that they managed to serve the food pretty fast. The food was simply delicious. I must admit that being from Germany all these years i haven't found a Indian restaurant in Germany that offers such delicious, authentic indian food as Restaurant Shanthi does. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. Also the food was price worthy compared to Interlaken standards. I would warmly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for Genuine South Indian food.

Guten Appetit!

“Very Good South Indian/Sri Lanka Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

This is a (Sri Lankan) family run restaurant a little off the beaten track so would get little passing trade, but it’s well worth finding. I understand that the owner has worked in Indian restaurants in Interlaken for many years, but started his own restaurant in May this year (when the premises next to the small grocery store that the family owned and lived above became vacant).

The premises are modern, bright and clean (the kitchen behind a bamboo matting screen is sparkling) although quite small with only six round tables. The food is (naturally) Sri Lankan and South Indian (not North Indian as a previous review said), with South Indian dishes such as Rasam, Dosa, Idlli and Hoppers making a welcome addition to the menu as they don’t often feature in the more common Bangladeshi-run Indian restaurants in UK.

I thought the food was very good. It’s true it is not quite so chilli-hot as that in Sri Lanka (the owner explained that this is because the Swiss locals do not like it quite that hot), but it is still spicy enough for those not from the sub continent and very flavoursome. It is all freshly cooked and prepared, so if you like curry, and particularly more authentic than the average UK high street curryhouse, then it is very well worth seeking out. Not cheap, but then nothing is in Switzerland and it is as reasonably priced if not more so than most restaurants and offers good value. Bearing in mind that the food is freshly cooked by the family, the service is fine and very friendly. It is worth noting that they offer very reasonably priced lunchtime specials, and it is closed on Mondays
