Indian restaurants in Switzerland

Some Indian tourists are very fussy about their food. They will not settle for anything other than pure Indian food, even though there are some phenomenal cuisines out there just waiting to be gobbled and relished. Fortunately for the young couples, when you are going for a Switzerland honeymoon, you will not go through such problems. Switzerland has always been a big draw for Indian tourists and honeymooners. So, a number of Indian residents have opened eateries which serve purely Indian dishes. Besides, now that internet culture has given another push to international tourism, such restaurants are opening doors pretty fast.

One of the more recommended of Indian restaurants in the Swiss region is the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant. It primarily serves north Indian food with special emphasis on Punjabi dishes. The USP of this joint is the Indian curry which has the power to make even the most sophisticated diners lick their fingers in a shameless display of gluttony. The fact that the joint is located in Interlaken also works in its favor. This town is counted amongst the more popular tourist destinations. So, the Taj Mahal restaurant deservingly gets its footfalls and even the non-Indian tourists often hop inside this place to get a taste of what spicy Indian food is all about.

If you happen to travel to Geneva, you must drop by at the Sajna Indian Restaurant. True to its name, its dishes too are authentically Indian. Foodies vouch for the delicacies served at this place. Besides, if you have a tongue for south Indian dishes, perhaps you cannot find any better place in the whole of Switzerland to get the best ones into your mouth. Sajna is run by an Indian family and hence there is a lot of bonhomie which a random Indian couple can associate with this joint. It helps that the prices are very reasonable and most people head back to their hotels only to return for another bout of lunch/dinner on the next day.

Grindelwald (does the name ring a bell) is another skiing resort which is quite popular for more reasons than one. It is not just a decently priced skiing resort and is quite a modern place for entertainment, it is a much-loved place amidst young people simply because of the fact that it is named after a character from the famed Harry Potter series of books. True to the expectations, Grindelwald has some pleasant surprises for children as well as grown-ups.

Switzerland Tourism: 5 Things I Really Love About Switzerland

I was still a kid when the late Bollywood director Yash Chopra opened the floodgates of fantasy and showed us a beautiful, almost incredible, vignette of Switzerland in his lovey-dovey films. Back then, I was pretty impressed and always wanted to have a slice of Switzerland tourism, provided someone pays for my trip. And then, years later, when I finally did get that chance to tour this country, I was skeptical! I felt that the country, after all, may not be as fancifully exuberant or as poetically charming as it was showcased in those Bollywood rom-coms.

But hey, I was wrong! I found this out the moment I landed on the Swiss soil. The sight which my eyes feasted on for the next few days is something which they won’t forget in a hurry. The Alps are not just mightily picturesque. They are epitomes of tranquility and appear to have jutted out right from some fable story. I can go on and on about the scenic beauty of this country. But then, I need to really move on, and point out a few other good things which Switzerland has to offer.

Here is a list of some of the best things I like about Switzerland:

i.    The train journey: Journeying through train back in my country was a horrendous experience. But it was in Switzerland that I discovered how good it can feel while you are seated inside a luxurious seat and the engine charges down those snowy mountains and the cold wind whips at your face! The Glacial Express journey is something I recommend to everyone, even to my miserly neighbor who, I know, would never take his family for an exorbitant Switzerland trip (even if he wins a million dollar lottery).

ii.    Architecture: Believe me, Switzerland has a very lively collection of buildings. And the great thing is that they come with some delectable variety! So, you have that quaint architecture which would pull you around its arms of nostalgia, and you also have some new-age modern designs coming up which can make you awed at the engineering skills of the ingenious man.

iii.    Chocolates and bonbons: Anyone who is into chocolates and bonbons will never be able to hate Switzerland. Switzerland tourism tempts you with its local chocolate factories and bonbon-selling shops. Yes I know even my native country sells chocolates like anything! But once you have tasted the Swiss chocolates, you are not going to get satisfaction out of anything else. Besides, in Switzerland, one can always take a tour of the factories and see the workers manufacturing these delicious little things!

iv.    Cuisine: Switzerland knows how to make you yield to temptation! I used to be a very choosy eater especially in offshore countries! But this place brought about a change in me, and made me eat like a glutton! Places like Post Haus, Heimberg and Chlosterli can make you lick your fingers over and over again.

v.    Skiing: Finally, I love this country for its adventure sports. There is no better place in the world to enjoy skiing. The snowy slopes are so fresh and windy, that I wish I could scream and say, ‘These mountain are mine’!
