Average Thai/Swiss restaurant

This is unexpectedly a thai restaurant that doubles up as a Swiss one too. Seeing thai staff we assumed they will have good thai food and went in. The menu has the swiss items lists in the beginning. But as you flip pages you see a picture menu of a limited list of Thai items. We ordered the... read more

Horrible, frozen and re-heated Thai food. Having lived in Asia, and having an Asian partner, we were looking to enjoy a nice Asian themed meal. Bad choice. You can get better in the Coop and re-heat yourself. The owner was rude to other guests, while the waiter looked on with embarrassment. Stupidly over priced for what as served.

While the food was at best average, the personal was unprofessional and unfriendly and after we had a minor complaint about the food witch was cold, the head of staff was incredibly rude. This kind of service does not belong to an international tourist destination!

Just some few years ago I had lovely fondue in this place. But since then the restaurant has totally changed. I just visited this place with my family as I thought that food would be as good as it used to be. Unfortunately, this expectation was wrong. First of all, today this place suppose to be a Swiss-Thai resturant and... More

One of the owner is thai and she is the main cook. Food was very delicious and service was very prompt. They were very welcoming and served lunch at 3pm. Will highly recommend this place

Meals (it feels like) served straight from microwave. The owner doesn't care about the customers and don't listen to their opinion.

Based on prior reviews, was very skeptical. Came anyways with low expectations and pleasantly surprised. Pro - beef curry #23 is good Con - prices on menu have been scratched out with pen and prices raised Pro - pictures on menu makes ordering easy Tip - chili powder that comes with pad Thai is crazy spicy

A surprising mix indeed. Swiss food is good, with the very Zermatt type of menue (you find in all restaurants about the same kind of food). The Thai food is also very typical. Quality however is rather mixed, service depends much an what waiter you get. Pricing on the medium-high side for Zermatt. Location very central, on a first floor... More
