Went there with my wife and kids. Kids were hungry and asked for oriental. When we ordered two main courses only, the host was very rude and started speaking to herself in french. Overall experience was very bad. Food prices are too high and the quality is not justifying the prices. Would not recommend this to any one.

Lovely ornate setting, great food (although we only tried the Persian dishes as Moroccan and Lebanese is offered aswell). Bit pricey but not surprising given the (historic) setting. Portion sizes are great, wine selection very good aswell. The manager / owner came by to see how our food was, lovely touch. Would def recommend.

The place to go to change ideas in a restaurant wise rather drab Montreux. The atmosphere is pseudo authentic, the meals rather good and service polite. It's the type of place you either love or hate - personally I like it.

My wife happened to find this restaurant while we were looking for a late lunch . The restaurant decoration is very impressive and make you feel the mood of the Middle East. We mainly selected the Persian cuisine as we were told that the chef were Iranians , we ordered Sultani Makhsoos and Chello Kebab, Jojoo Kebab , yoghurt with... More

Right on the promenade, as we had not booked and managed to get one of the last tables we did not get a lake view table, this in no way spoiled our visit. The inside décor is very impressive too. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. Would highly recommend if you are looking for something a little different while visiting... More

The atmosphere is very nice and has a lovely oriental middle-eastern theme to it. The decoration is wonderful. The service is good - very busy, but the staff are friendly. Food was good. A little bland though, but I enjoyed the lamb steak with rice and veg. The lamb shank was tasty but the saffron rice was nothing special. ***A... More
