You always has to wait for a while to get a seat in this restaurant since everyone likes it. Self service restaurant where you have to order yourself and get ur food. The price is very affordable for a fresh food and for the big quantity that they give. Love the fried rice and the fresh lemonade.

Thai Express was one of the first of the oriental-style fast food restaurants in Frankfurt and for some years it was a good choice for a filling and tasty lunch when shopping in the city centre. Although the menu has grown the standard of the food has slipped. Our dishes were prepared so quickly that it made me suspicious -... More

I agree with all the other reviews stating that it's not Thai. I've been all over Thailand and eaten a lot of Thai food, this is certainly not Thai food!

Surprisingly, frankfurt has a lot of international cuisine, which seems unnecessary at times since they're local food is so amazing! But everyone needs a break once in a while and Thai food is a popular choice here in the city, there seems to be one one every block. A fellow flight attendant friend told me about this spot right off... More

This time, I would like to share my experience in dining at Thai Express when I visited Frankfurt several months ago. FYI, this establishment is located a bit off the main street in Zeil area, the famous shopping area in Frankfurt. It's quite easy to find it if you stroll down along Zeil : All you need to do is...

I read the reviews about this place and I'm really happy that I decided to go anyhow. Probably if you come from Thailand this food won't fulfill your expectations, but for any person who enjoys Thai food with a western touch, I would recommend this place. The prices are good and the quality of the food is also very good.... More

First of all, I'm Thai. I went to Frankfurt with my family on our vacation in europe. Because of a long trip, we always try to find some Thai restaurant by using tripadvisor which always good choices. But for this one, it was absolutely terrible! The menu is all Thai dishes, but in reality-it's not at all. For examples, we... More

To keep it short ... disappointing taste and food quality. Overcooked rice, tasteless veggies and meat. Atmosphere rather like a cantine style than a restaurant at all. Tables dirty and stuff too lazy to clean it up. Over all a disappointing experience.

Not more than average Thai food. The choice is not bad ,but the food is not of high quality and tastes accordingly. If you are at the "Zeil" area and want a fast meal this is not a bad choice!
