Why are we Indians so noble

The top 5 Indian restaurants in Munich

For a long time it was considered chic to go to Indian restaurants for an extensive meal. Although the cuisine with its traditional dishes is often kept simple and the origins of the original recipes usually go back many decades, Indian cuisine has not lost its popularity and charm to this day. The offer is great. In our top 5 we reveal where it is really worthwhile to stop off to get to know Indian cuisine better and authentically!


About 20 minutes away from Munich is probably the best Indian restaurant in the Munich area. The "Jaipur" - like the capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan - is located in the middle of the Grünwald market square, a little hidden behind a heavy, golden door. Once inside, as a guest, you quickly feel catapulted to India. Indian pictures on the walls, dark furniture, bright colors and authentic food with a focus on North Indian cuisine. The "Jaipur" can definitely be called noble. It also impresses with both classic and unusual variations from Indian cuisine. Personal wishes, for example regarding the spiciness of the food or the composition of the Thalis - a very typical Indian national dish - are gladly taken into account. Even during the week it is advisable to make a reservation by telephone before visiting, as the cuisine of the Grünwalder "Jaipur" is popular beyond the borders of Munich.

The Indian Affair

Swagat restaurant

Meter-high ceilings, chic furnishings, warm colors: when it comes to ambience, nobody can fool the restaurant "The Indian Affair" on Maximiliansplatz. With the equally unusual menu, the restaurant shows that a culinary experience in connection with Indian cuisine is imminent, which is not available on every corner. "From the Ocean", "From the Farm", "From the Wild" and "From the Fields" divide the main dishes clearly into different categories and vegetarians are also catered for with various creations. The location, the ambience and the high-quality food are reflected in the price, but it is nonetheless worth a visit. Those who like to try new things will be delighted by variations such as lobster in yoghurt marinade with saffron, Indian caraway and spices from the tandoor. Conclusion: If you like it chic and unusual, "The Indian Affair" is the right place for you.

If you ask people interested in culinary delights in Munich about a good Indian restaurant, you may often get "Swagat" as an answer. The Indian restaurant on Prinzregentenplatz offers great cuisine from northern India in a chic restaurant in the basement. Often a stroll across the square is enough and the typical scent of Indian dishes rises in the nose. Dishes in the most varied of consistencies await on site, with different degrees of heat and meat. It is also true here that Indian restaurants are ideal for vegetarian guests. Numerous meatless variations (Palak Paneer, Malai Kofta or Dal Makhani) await as well as the classic (meaty) Chicken Tikka Masala, different Thalis, Biryani and Indian desserts. Reservations recommended!

When visiting the "Kerala" restaurant, guests can expect a completely different cuisine than in most Indian restaurants in Munich. This is because the "Kerala" specializes in South Indian cuisine and uses different specialties and ingredients than those in North India. For example, dishes are often served on large banana leaves and the fruit itself often ends up in dishes. Combinations with tomato and banana, cashew and spices are on the menu. A classic and often found on the breakfast table of the Indians is "Dosa", which is offered in the Bogenhauser "Kerala" with various fillings. Anyone who would like to gain even more culinary impressions from southern India will be just as enthusiastic about Idli - rice fritters served with three different chutneys - as they are about the classic "Chicken Mangai" - chicken breast fillet with fresh mango, coconut and almond cream sauce. If there is still room for sweets, we recommend "Rava Kesari" - a pudding made from yam flour, honey, coconut, saffron and cashew nuts.

The "Sangeet" is not far from the Munich Feldherrenhalle in the center of Odeonsplatz and belongs to the two Indian restaurants "Suhag" and "Sangam" in Munich-Giesing. The downtown restaurant is characterized by fresh and high-quality ingredients and prepares its dishes mainly in the tandoor - a classic Indian clay oven. In addition to the flexibility in terms of seasoning and spiciness according to personal preferences, the "Sangeet" impresses with a particularly extensive variety of vegetables, fish and meat, accompanied by basmati and saffron rice as well as nan bread.
