5 Best Indian Restaurants in Switzerland

Indian food is not always all about Chicken Tikka masala, although we have clearly mastered it over time. The cuisine is a mélange of so many indulgent gastronomical elements it almost is like a rush of new and distinctive flavors in every bite.

A few elements you really want to look for and try out are the varied choices of Indian bread like naans, rumalis, kulchas, pavs, and our personal favorite parathas!

It is a mixture of greens, beans, lentils, and sometimes even pulses all mixed together with ground spices and herbs. Hungry much?
