It must be said that most of the Indian restaurants in town are working on Sundays. Tibet, located near Zitha Clinik in the Gare area, is one of my favourites, because it offers not only traditional Indian dishes, but also Tibetan ones. A pinch of the exotic in cosy Luxembourg!

Top Tip: Best crab tempura roll in town and the ananas duck roll made our taste buds sing. Plus there is a huge parking lot in back- and who doesn’t love FREE and EASY parking?
Located in Beggen, Sapori offers traditional, refined, Italian cuisine prepared with seasonal ingredients. The design of the restaurant is elegant and minimal, whilst service is proactive and dishes great – especially those with meat. The wine list is one of the best I have seen in town; as a result the bill adds up quite fast, but it is definitely worth it.
Top Tip: Come here for that special celebration that deserves a great bottle
Even if Clausen is a bit silent on Sundays, Ikki’s doors are very much open. You can start with a drink at the ground floor and move to the trendy restaurant. The menu includes both traditional international dishes and a great sushi choice. Service is good.
