our favorite restaurant in Switzerland

We have been eating at Tham's since 1999. We visit Switzerland about every other year and try to get to Tham's at least twice even though we don't stay in Murren. His food is amazing! He cooks it up quickly and serves it hot and fresh. He is generous with his very fresh vegetables in the dishes... read more

We were too hungry when we found out this place. We requested the chef to make our rice/noodle spicy and the request was complied. Amazing taste !!! WOW feel ! Its a 6-7 min walk towards Schilthron Bahn from Murren Station.

Honest flavor of different types of Chinese course. Fresh ingredients and the chef couple are very nice and multilingual. Feels at home as a Chinese guest. Prices are fine, even cheap considering the location of the restaurant. 非常地道的中国菜,有酸甜味也有很辣的咖喱可以吃。老板娘非常的热情好客并且可以说流利的汉语英语法语德语,菜价考虑到在2000m的海拔也算比较便宜,豆芽还是老板自己驱车去伯尔尼中超买回来的。

The food was unexpectedly tasty! Ingredients are very fresh and the taste is genuinely Cantonese. Not in big portions though. The best dish we had is the sweet sour duck. Very intense sweet and sour taste, second to none!

If you've been to Murren, then you know just how crazy expensive the restaurants are. We came across Tham and decided to give it a try. The prices were more reasonable than most restaurants. We ordered two entrees for three of us to share, and both were outstanding! We cleaned every morsel off of our plates. The portions were large... More

The food is really good and price is very reasonable as compared to other places in the area. We ordered a mixed platter of appetizers, egg fried rice and Tom yum soup and total bill was a mere 30 franks. Next time we ordered curry chicken which was nice too. The place may not be always open for lunch, since... More

They had really good food and both of the owners were very helpful & friendly! Other than being expensive...but every restaurant is, we were happy to have something different than what other restaurants had to offer.

I will be very honest. The food is average. It's fine, but nothing ordinary. But the owner is awfully rude, even lecturing us what he thinks it's Switzerland rule. He even say that all the other restaurants in Murren are bad! And I think that's extremely arrogant and very rude thing to say. I've NEVER been any other restaurant that... More

My daughter and I stumbled across this sit down/take out Chinese restaurant in Murren as we were looking for the cable car up the mountain. The food was sooooo good and the owner/chef was friendly and helpful. I had the fried noodles with chicken and it reminded me of the great street food of Singapore. The dish was cooked perfectly...
