We were visiting Nyon for business and asked our hotel for Indian restaurant. We were told to go to restaurant Sultan if we want to have real Indian food. It was great recommendation. All of us enjoyed the dinner and service was great. Next day we went again but this time for self service buffet. Restaurant was full but staff... More

It's a shame because the food is not bad. But the service was almost non-exitant. The trainee who served most of the restaurant was not sufficiently apt to do the job. She will need some more training before she is apt for the job. The problem is not her, but her management.

Dear client, Thank you for your remarks. We totally agreed with you that the quality of service by the trainee is not perfect. We have been training young trainees for over fifteen years and when we employed them we take the chances that there may be some complaints from the clients concerning their work. We have to take thiese chances... More

Planned for a family dinner out accompanied by a traveling colleague. Food was bland with no spice. Veg (legumes) korma was more like turmeric korma. In Chicken curry we had to search for curry to go along with naan we had ordered. Overall not so good dining experience and won't recommend one.

Unfriendly service. Food was not Indian..no chutney, or pickles, just poor. Dessert was canned litchis. Definitely not a traditional Indian sweet!!!!

Shahid W, Owner at sultan, responded to this review

Hello Sanjay, I am not going to apologize and very unhappy with your unfair remark about the food. Just because you did not get your chutney you passed this remark. Why didn't you ask for it? We always serve our client who wishes to have it. We just donot put it on the table. There are already too many dishes... More

We have been for lunch obvious factoring in some time pressure. With the lunch buffet this is not a problem: there is sufficient choice, plenty in quantity and for the price/speed the food is really good. Have to admit haven't been for dinner (yet) but can certainly recommend it for a lunch in Nyon.

Had dinner with my buddies, tried different curries and naans. Loved all of them but was hooked to the Sultani sauce. The mood and the ambiance of the place was also enjoyable with very welcoming service. Will be returning back for more Sultani sauce.

We often take their tasty food to eat at home and it's always good. For years we've been doing it. Always well cooked, well seasoned and the portions are of a good size. We've also eat at the restaurant and apart from the quality of the service, which was just ok, the food was even better than the take away.... More

I lived in Bombay for 6 months so I know great Indian food when I taste it. The food is good here, one portion of Basmati rice is probably enough for two, and you must have the buttered chicken curry.

If you are looking for a family and friendly atmosphere, this restaurant is the place to be. He offers you a wide menu that makes you travel to India. The take away service is also a good option.

Good food, quite atmosphere, have to admit nothing special, nothing that makes you want to go back... however it is a good local neighborhood Indian restaurant that most of the night is not busy. The service is good, the food is good but again average.
