The restaurant is located directly at the walking promenade at the lake - what a view! Great service welcomes you - I recommend to make a reservation as the restaurant looks to be very popular.

The interiors have ornate walls with beautiful carvings and mosaic work. Dinner is best suited inside with the palatial surroundings and lay out of food. Food is sumptuous. If... More

The restaurant offers beautiful interior architecture, reminiscent of the near east, but even if you're in the enclosed terrace area, it's still very pleasant. The service staff is attentive but not obtrusive and the food is all absolutely delectable. The couscous is fluffy and flavorful and a perfect vessel for their tajines.

I don't come here very often, but every time I go I'm happy that I decided. Fantastic food... Persian.. grilled..super tasty. It's not cheap, but definitely worth it.

As the word oriental says, it is a place where you eat oriental dishes, there are very good, indeed. The place is charming and well decorated , you can eat in a nice closed terrace with the lake's view or inside and you really think you are somewhere in the Orient !

Surrounded by Magnificent Lake Geneva views in a lavish oriental decoration and excellent food it is certainly one of the best restaurants in the area . The owner is always meticulously taking care of this establishment since many years and personally assisting to all his guests. A must to taste

This restaurant is a real oriental oasis in Switzerland. The setting is amazingly warm and charming, service match the oriental kindness with the peaceful atmosphere of Montreux. Food is amazingly tasty and rich.

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.
