Falaque Restaurant Review || Nyon,Switzerland

During our two weeks stay at Nyon, Switzerland, we (especially hubby) tried our best to explore food, local tourist places and various restaurants. I love Indian food, therefore, my first preference will always be an Indian Restaurant over others even in foreign countries!! In this post, I am going to review Falaque, an Indian & Bangladeshi restaurant which is considered as one of the best affordable restaurants at Nyon. If you love Indian, especially Bengali food and are visiting Nyon soon, then keep reading.

About Falaque Restaurant- Share the Happiness:

Located just 6 minutes walk-away from Nyon Railway station & 10 minutes from the Waterfront, at Falaque you would get Bengali (Bangladeshi) and North Indian Cuisine. The restaurant is run by a Bangladeshi family who is well-settled in Nyon. They make delicious and healthy recipes which are fresh and available at affordable prices. They say-

Falaque Restaurant- Hospitality, Food Quality & Other Details:

I would have written about this Bangladeshi restaurant long back but unfortunately, I lost all the photos of it and other restaurants! I was heartbroken, to be honest 😞! I could recover only a handful of pictures thus thought of publishing this blog post with whatever photos I have.

Even though we were staying at Hôtel Des Alpes, except petite breakfast we never had had our lunch and dinner there! For lunch, my go-to place was this Falaque (Bangladeshi & Indian) Restaurant because of its proximity and Bengali flavour! Hubby would go to different restaurants near his office and for dinner, we used to go to other restaurants either outside Nyon or close to our hotel like Khana Mandir and Sultan Restaurant etc.

The restaurant is smaller in size as compared to other Indian restaurants at Nyon but looks clean, decent and is well-organized. I liked its minimalistic interior style.

Falaque is mainly famous for its take-away, home delivery, office lunches and catering services but the restaurant is also equipped with a few tables for fine dining with your family and friends.

One fantastic thing is to notice that they change their menu every day and this actually is so needed for those who eat their meal at the same place every day! For example, daily I used to go there for my lunch as it was just a minute walk away from my hotel and I loved their mild spicy food. Had it been the same menu all the time, I would have been bored and disliked the place for sure!

Waiting for food :D

Coming to the food taste and quality, I must admit that their food is always freshly cooked and tastes delicious & authentic. The credit goes to their efficient staff & precious hand-blended spices, I reckon! They also have Vegan, Gluten-free food option, great for Vegan foodies. 


From the menu’s ENTRY category, I tried carrot soup (Soupe aux lait de coco, carotte et patate douce) and Cucumber Raita (Cucumber, yoghurt with cumin, mint and coriander leaves). The delectable hot, thick creamy soup definitely increased the appetite every time I took a sip.

From the MAIN Category- I tried most of their dishes that include Mixed Vegetable (Légume Du Jour), Daal (Lentilles du Jour), Saag Aloo (spinach & potatoes with mustard seeds), Poulet Jhal Avec Poivrons (Chicken breast pieces cooked with tomatoes, garam masala & bell peppers), Poulet Curry, Poulet Masala etc. with plain Rice. They have set menu option as well. However, the number of vegetarian foods on the menu is pretty less, only two-three items!

Even though I am not fond of Chicken, the delicious taste of their chicken curries left me amazed.  Trust me, the succulent pieces of chicken dipped in a rich flavorful gravy with perfectly balanced spices will leave your tummy feel elated. However, at times I found the flavour of both Poulet (Chicken) Curry and Poulet Masala almost similar or maybe I was eating those dishes every alternate day thus felt the same! Nonetheless, the serving portion of rice is too petite for (Indian) adults 😜, so do order Naan or two three items more for yourself. I don’t eat Naan/Roti with Rice so I feel that they should increase the amount, rest everything was amazing.

Cucumber Raita

Amongst all the dishes I tried, Cucumber Raita was the shining STAR!! I can still feel the creamy, mouth-watering taste of that delectable raita. When I asked the owner “what’s the secret behind its yumminess”, she replied quickly that they use hand-blended, homemade spices to each recipe including raita. I loved it so much that I ordered this item every single day with my meal! If you don’t believe my words, please try Cucumber Raita at their place once at least and you would know why I am praising it so much.


Besides food, one thing which can make or break a deal is none other than the hospitality, right? Falaque has the most charming front-desk manager I have ever met! She is gorgeous, ever-smiling lady and is courteous too. Let’s not forget about the sweet owner! She is a Bangladeshi woman so being a Bengali girl myself, I was ecstatic to meet her and also we had some cool chit-chat about life and business.

All in all, Falaque is a perfect family-friendly restaurant to eat at if you are looking for trying out Bangladeshi & North Indian cuisine at an affordable price in Nyon, Switzerland! Kindly don’t expect it to be a luxurious fine dining restaurant, it’s a simple small-sized eatery offering reasonably priced yet high quality food cooked with lots of love to the guests. Suffice to say, I absolutely relished Falaque’s tasty food & enjoyed its homely ambience, so would highly recommend it.
