Chez Bilia

Chez Bilia is an Indian restaurant located in the centre of Montreux which offers a cuisine originating from Kashmir in India. All dishes are home-made with fresh products. Their flavours allow the clientele to travel, while being adapted to European palates.

The restaurant’s menu offers a wide range of North Indian cuisine. Meat or vegetarian, with naan, tandoori, massala or tika. The terrace in front of the restaurant allows you to eat while enjoying the view of the Swiss mountains.

Mai Thai

Mai Thai has always made it a point of honour to offer gourmet cuisine, with a focus on high-quality, traditional preparations.

Thai cuisine is recognised as one of the most tasty and refined in the world. Whether spicy or mild, the harmony of flavours and colours is found in every dish. The originality of this cuisine lies in the use of Thai spices. The Thais attribute to all these spices gustatory properties but also curative virtues.
