Great food and good ambience, spacious restaurant conveniently located 5 mins walk from Gare Cornavin. Tried the hot and cold mezze platter and mixed grill. Everything was delicious with the Baba Ghanoush mezze and Chicken wings mezze outstanding!

We had a relatively small dinner at Chez Sami, but the food was very good, and service was courteous too. It's not cheap, but that is Switzerland in a nutshell

Professional and friendly staff. Nice mezze display but king of frozen food. Overall, really pricy for what we get.
