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.
