With a reputation as the most authentic Thai food in Geneva, Sam Lor is often full of satisfied customers. Located in Geneva's Bohemian neighbourhood, Les Pâquis, Sam Lor provides an alternative setting for sampling excellent Thai food. The restaurant's specialty is a choice of Duck or Red Coquelet in coconut milk sauce. For the Thai-food purists, all the traditional Thai favorites are on the menu as well. The service is friendly and efficient.
We were rudely treated and the food was not real Thai. The restaurant was 80% empty and they gave us a hard time because we did not have a reservation, shifting us around to different parts of the room. Then waiter immediately became irritated when we hesitated about our order. It was not just us; at a table nearby we could hear a couple complaining about the treatment they got. It is a nice looking place, but a great dissappointment. The food was also not authentic Thai. The management has a real problem on its hands. We do not recommend this restaurant.
I was looking for a good restaurant in the downtown area and saw Sam Lor while taking a walk. I checked with the reviews here and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed! The food was simply delicious and the atmosphere is interesting with a combination of Thai and contemporary art. The service was very good and they checked back with us often. I went with the dinner menu which included soup, an appetizer of fried wonton, eggroll, and chicken scewers, a main dish with rice (chicken with vegetables and cashews), a dessert (fresh mango), and coffee. The menu was 59 chf which while not cheap, is not bad for a quality restaurant in Geneva. It's close location near the lake for an after dinner walk was just icing on the cake! Highly recommended!
Good location (very close to the lake), great food, decent atmosphere... actually stumbled upon this place accidentally, and was very please. It's on my "places to eat at next time I am in Geneva". Highly recommended!
Very nice atmosphere. Traditional seating where you remove your shoes and sit cross legged is available. Regular table seating is also available. Live orchids and lit candles on every table added to the exotic ambiance.
I chose a noodle appetizer (or entree) and the person I was with chose a shrimp lemon grass soup which featured shrimp which I call ENORMOUS! Both are highly recommended.
For my main course I chose a red chicken curry with coconut milk. The person I was with chose a green seafood curry with coconut milk. Both are an good creamy combination of fresh vegetables, bamboo, asian basil and either shrimp or chicken.
This is definately a restaurant I would re-visit again!! The service could have been a tiny bit faster however the servers were definatly attentive once we caught their attention. I do recommend that you make a reservation in advance. The restaurant was fully booked for the Friday night we visited.
Bold, invigorating design has modernised the interior of the Mövenpick on the rue du Cendrier beyond recognition. The voluminous space
comprises two cafe areas, bar, à la carte restaurant and a counter serving deservedly famous ice cream. In the ...
