Sultan (Nyon, Switzerland)


While I have been posting reviews of restaurants for several months now, somehow there has been a lack of Indian food here! Indian food is known to be great for vegetarians, and I think most restaurants also have vegan dishes, but it depends on the regional cuisine. For example, cream or ghee (a dairy product) are used in some cuisines more than in others.

The first Indian restaurant I’d like to discuss today is Sultan, in Nyon. During the “Christmas break”, when I visited, it was one of the few places that were open! We went for early lunch, and it was not very busy, which is probably due to the holidays. The atmosphere of the restaurant is modern, a bit bistro-like even, compared to (the many) other Indian restaurants that I have been to.

Sultan has a lunch deal, a self-service buffet with a fixed price. Naans (which are vegan!) and drinks are not included. The buffet itself is small but sufficient. There are several vegan options, and the staff knows which ones are vegan. Everything is accessible at once, but can be defined as starters/mains/desserts.

For starters there are delicious onion bhaji, a cucumber salad, and an apple- beet salad. The beet salad was interesting, and a bit sweet.  The vegan “main” options are rice with chick peas, dal tarka, basmati rice and vegetables (cauliflower and potato). There are some lychees for dessert, but I believe there are more dessert options at the dinner service (Not sure if those are vegan)

Overall the food was of a good quality, and I am always happy to find vegan naans! The price is fitting for the food that is available. I hope to go back to Sultan for dinner one day.
