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. Lausanne is a city in Kanton Vaud on Lake Geneva, also known as the home to the International Olympic Committee headquarters, the Olympic Museum and lakeshore Olympic Park. Restaurant is located in the heart of the city, close to the Saint-François Galeries. You can reach us by 7 minutes walk from Lausanne train station or simply take metro to Bessières.
At all of our GoldenIndia restaurants, You can taste the authenticity and tradition of Indian cuisine of Northern India in every Punjabi curry and our special tandoori dishes that are prepared using traditional cooking methods. You can choose from a wide selection of a la carte dishes. There is a great selection of dishes to satisfy the stomach as well as the soul for vegetarians and meat-eaters.
Service was prompt and friendly, the food wonderful. Everything was also spotlessly clean.
I would like to thank the manager for asking a family to stop using their... read more cel phones on speaker and to also put them on vibrate in order to not disturb the other guests. Our time there was being spoilt as a result.
Once the situation had been resolved, we had a relaxing time and were enjoy the freshness of the food.
The place is also reasonably priced for Zermatt.
We will be back when we return.

My wife and I are in Zermatt and we passed Golden India outside of the train station. We love Indian food so we thought we would give it a try.... read more It was great! My wife got some chicken and loved it. I ordered lamb vindaloo and asked our server to make it spicy. He gave me smile and said okay. The food came and it was amazing.

Myself and wife were visiting Zermatt for 1 nite. We being kenyan - Indians obviously huge fan of Indian food. But we are very selective. We avoid going to Indian... read more restaurants especially when visiting North America/Canada and Europe. We don't find them authentic in taste and bit over priced.
However being away from home and we were really missing Indian food and start looking for 1 in zermatt and we came across to this piece of Gem called Golden India. And we dint checked the reviews too. Ambiance really pleased us. Ambiance was very nice and authentic.
Angello greeted us and he was very welcoming. We started ordering and as we were super hungry we wanted to over order and Angello was kind enough to guide us on quantity.
Service was super quick and food was so tasty, with authentic Indian spices.
We strongly recommend everyone for this piece of gem in zermatt and lookout for Angello.
Ps - order Veg Biryani and it was super tasty.
Keep it up team Golden India.

I have been wishing for many years that there would be an indian restaurant in Zermatt. Some while back there was a pop up indian restaurant which existed for like... read more a season that was great but temporary. I didn't realise until very recently that Golden India had opened although we pass the area where it is located every time we arein Zermatt.
We ordered take away, as that's the only thing to do at the moment, and it was just how we like it, very good indian food. If you like it spicey then I recommend the Buhna dishes, they will also make vindaloo on order for those of you with a hot palate.
The menu is very extensive and there are plenty of dishes which will want to try for further orders either at home or at the restaurants when it opens again.

Thank you very much for this fantastic meal we could enjoy this evening by take away.
-Malai Tikka as a starter
The... read more recommendations given to us by Vinod was perfect, my wife loved the mild Butter Chicken and I was enjoying very much the Chicken Bhuna which was perfectly spiced. Not to forget the two chutneys along and the white sauce.
We will definitely come back to eat in the restaurant as soon as the Covid-19 restrictions are over or enjoy take away again even before.

Beautifully cooked dishes with the spice combinations shining through. I had the Chicken Saag and would definitely have it again. Pity it's not closer to where we live. It would... read more be fantastic as a local takeaway.
Just one thing to note, I think the name has changed over the door of the restaurant to 'A Taste of India'. Anyway, it's just opposite the main station.
