I visited the restaurant with my friend and her mother. The owner was diligent in checking our Covid passes. I am a vegetarian, so he also suggested what I could have, which was a platter. It was delicious food. Also the service is very kind...and attentive. I highly recommend this gem of a place to anyone in Olten.More

I highly recommend Restaurant Orient - this lovely place provides you delicious food in a very friendly atmosphere. The dishes were huge (at the beginning we wanted to take three dishes for two people but the waiter advised as not to - and he was...right! The size of the plate was really on the limit of my stomach) with a lot of varies food .The stuff was very kind and we felt more like meeting friends than a restaurant in an unknown city. The Moroccan tea was a good as the one served in Marrakesh! (Remember to add a lot of sugar to it ;) ). For sure this place will be on my list to visit when I go again to Olten!More

I can highly recommend this restaurant. We went there for a dinner. Food was wonderful and in large quantities for a very good price. We had a pleasant chat with the owner. He even offered tea for free. We felt there really welcome and cosy....I will definitely go back there!More

I mean really? 10 CHF for what exactly in Switzerland? A menu meal at fast food places costs more but this is definitely a value for money deal in Olten. You get a packaged meal of rice, deep fried chicken strips (ridiculously seasoned so nice...and tasty), a falafel, cucumber yoghurt salad and then some other side salad and french fries. When I first ordered it, I was like why not? And if it's horrible tasting, oh well.... not such a loss. However, I was floored by the tastiness of the platter and the fact I felt it was definitely healthier than other fast food joints. Oh did I say generous portions too? The owner is very kind and welcoming. I will definitely be heading back to try their other dishes.More

We went in for lunch and had a selectio of vegetarian mezze dishes. They were good, especially falafel and fried cheese things. The inside is small but nicely decorated, more a restaurant than a fast food joint. Would come here again for a less casual...meal.More
