Zum Thailander is a small but very charming Thai restaurant with close to real Thai experience. The atmosphere is nice and cozy without being typical too kitschy. The portions are made to the detail and the taste is excellent. Also here not too European but properly spicy. Can really recommend

Really liked everything about this restaurant. The staff is really nice, the atmosphere is good and they payed a lot of attention to detail for the interior design. The food is very good, one of the best thai places I've been to. Nice spiciness, great selection, fresh ingredients and again a lot of nice little details on the plate and... More

Convinced by the good comments read on Tripadvisor I decided to go for this restaurant while visiting Biel on a business trip! No need to say that I had great expectations, and I must admit it was the right choice. The restaurant itself looks pretty nice and has a good atmosphere. When we arrived there was only one table available,... More

I love traditional thai food and at Zum Thailänder serves good thai food not exceptional but okay, not spicy at it could be but okay. The waitresses are nice, the boss a bit too pervasive, the décor not too cliché but the prices are too expensive for what you get (quality-wise the quantity is not the problem). Try it out.

When you first traverse the old town in Biel to suddenly find this tiny place you'll be surprised at just how small it is. What you see in the picture on tripadvisor really is more or less the whole thing. After our first visit (after first seeing that it was 2. on tripadvisor in Biel) we came back - in... More
