About Golden India
Golden India – the name is adapted from “Sone ki Chidiya” meaning “the sparrow of gold”. This is the name given to India because of its richness in diversity of religions, cultures, languages and especially food.
Golden India promises to serve authentic Indian food in the Swiss Alps. Our guests can enjoy Indian food in Grindelwald, Wengen (car free village) and Zermatt (car free village). Grindelwald and Wengen are located in Jungfrau region, close to Interlaken, in the Berner Oberland in Switzerland. Golden India is the first authentic Indian restaurant in Zermatt. Zermatt is a car free village and lies at the feet of the world famous “Swiss Toblerone Chocolate Mountain, “Matterhorn”. Zermatt is also known as “Matterhorn Glacier paradise” region in the Valais kanton.
Our next new adventure is the opening of Golden India in Lausanne.

We were missing home food and spices a little so decided to go for this. The food felt great cause it had spices and flavour, but... read more as you unravel it further - you realise that this isn’t the greatest food. Just an oasis for home food starved Indians.

A true Indian gem, authentic food, a must try!! - We are from India and I have to say the food at place was surprisingly tasty. We tried the Palak Paneer where the palak appeared freshly made, and the paneer... read more was soft and delicious.
We also had the Lamb Rogan Josh, and again it was way better than expected.
Remember this is Zermatt, so temper your expectations, but really we had no complaints on taste.
And the best part, we were offered tap water at no charge, unlike all the other rip-off restaurants where you pay CHF 6 for some fancy Italian water when you’re in the middle of water heaven.. oh the irony!! Not here. Rice was all free with the entree.
Friendly efficient staff, just 5 stars all around.

I can't believe I ate it all! - I visited the restaurant early (5:30) and apparently, there was only one waiter working at that time. I had come in just after a very large party of 10+ people,... read more so the waiter was distracted for quite some time collecting all their orders...thus, I can't say that the service was particularly memorable. However, the chicken biriyani I ordered was absolutely delicious and although I initially thought the portion was large enough for me to take some home, I just couldn't find the will power to stop eating, so the idea of a "take home portion" quickly disappeared. I'd love to come back with more people to order a variety of the dishes, based on the excellence of the dish I ordered. Compliments to the chef!I
