The Rajpoute, Ornex - always good

We regularly dine at the Rajpoute, an Indian and Pakistani restaurant about ten minutes out into France from the border with Geneva. The fact that it is almost always full and that you have to reserve long in advance at the weekend, speaks for itself. We have never been disappointed. The service is... read more

Seems like this Indian restaurant is always full. Nice atmospere upstairs with quite authentic Indian/Pakistani food. They use lots of oil and the spices are not as fresh and tasty like in India. Very expensive!

I'm a regular at this local restaurant, which is a five-minute drive from my house. The service is invariably friendly and welcoming.

This place is better when you come as a group and "share" food, as everything is good and full of flavors. Amazing wood work everywhere, chairs a bit straight and too high for my legs, but no one complained. Sit down and a cocktail is served with what I can only call an Indien chip! Do not know the name... More

We had a pleasant dinner. Service was friendly and forthcoming. The dishes where tasty, correctly priced (for the Geneva area). The carpet could use an update, but thats not the priority when you want to eat a nice Indian meal.

My husband and I discovered this restaurant two years ago. It serves Indian food which tastes good although I find it more on the oily side. We used to frequent this restaurant quite often during our summer holidays in France. The service is good and the staff are friendly. Last year, in August 2012, my husband, son and myself were...

We have found the food here to be very good, certainly better than other Indian restaurants in this area outside of Geneva. The service and ambiance are also very good though there is no outdoor seating. The price is reasonable for the area.

Took a friend here recently and were somewhat disappointed that we we seated downstairs. However, the other rooms were full and the downstairs soon became full as well. Staff very helpful and friendly and we had a very good meal. 96euros for 3 people including wine, which, for the area and proximity to Geneva, is quite reasonable. We were offered... More

We'd read and heard a lot of good things about Rajpoute and were excited to try it. We did a big take out order. Every dish was laced with vinegar. Altho this is the style in parts of India this was just too much. Will not go again. And it was expensive but that is typical in this area so... More
